    A charming bed and breakfast with a very comfortable room. Walking distance from many restaurants and arts and crafts stores. Carol in reception was extremely helpful and nice. Make sure to visit the berry farm up the hill. Will stay there again.

    What a beautiful little find - we stayed in one of the loft rooms! Private, exceptional mountain and creek views, and very large in size. As it was only an overnight stay we made the most of our views as we were arriving just before sunset. We sat on our private deck with a beer until the sun went down.... More

    Charming Cape Dutch house in a quiet neighborhood. While the location is beautiful (in the foothills of mountains), Carol's hospitality made our trip especially enjoyable. She provided a cot/crib for our 7-week old baby, upgraded our room (free of charge), gave excellent restaurant recommendations, and gave us a discount. Friendly. Breakfast was good, too. Upon our departure, Carol helped coordinate... More

    I spent one extremely comfortable night here and can highly recommend this guesthouse. Quiet, comfortable, great breakfasts and friendly staff. It was a cold night, but with good central aircon switched on warm and a warm electric blanket it was warm and toasty inside. The area is nice and I highly recommend Field & Fork around the corner for cheesecake!

    My husband and I felt right at home. We felt welcome. Our room was neat and tidy. The restaurant that was suggested for our dinner was superb. Next day before we departed our car was washed! An added bonus. We shall definitely go there again.

    Although we only spent one night in this wonderful guesthouse, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, the great garden and the comfortable terrace. We were lucky to get a free update on one of the nice rooms upstairs! The owner welcomed us very cordially and gave us a lot of tips for dinner in Swellendam. Also we got a very nice... More

    After three weeks on safari we were looking for a little luxury. We arrived mid-afternoon following a stunning drive from Cape Town to a quiet street in the charming village of Swellendam. We were warmly greeted and shown our room at the back of the house, with an inviting deck, chairs and a lounge with pads. This overlooked a lovely... More

    Our hostess was very welcoming, and when we were shown around the back to our room we were delighted by the garden and the outlook of the mountains. The room itself was large, and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was also very nice, and I enjoyed a soak in the bathtub. We appreciated the electric heater in the room, and... More

    We booked the room the day prior our arrival and I guess we were just lucky. Although we booked the standard room we certainly felt “upgraded” by getting the room on the top floor. The room was fantastic, simply huge and with a bath tub right in the middle. The moment we saw the tub we felt that we were... More
