Relaxed five star accommodation right on the river. A little bit of heaven. A must to return again and again. Even if you don't need to break your journey this guest house is so welcoming that it makes you want to spend a night ... To wake up to unbelievable breakfasts on a patio offering endless views of Mountains and... More

Big thanks to Aan de Oever guesthouse for making us feel warmly welcome in this cozy & beautiful B&B. The breakfast is great - and the view from the terrace even greater: the mountain are stunning and really beautiful. We also sincerely appreciated the details in service that made it both comfortable and unique!

A good location, warm and welcoming staff and very good breakfast. Kingfisher room lovely and our only comment was that it was susceptible to a bit of noise first thing in the morning from staff trying to creep around. Would stay there again but for longer next time.

We were given a room upgrade to a room upstairs at the back of the main house, lovely room and view of stream and mountains. Town is a lovely place for a stroll, felt safe and enjoyed being there. Local resturant was booked for us and was a great meal Excellent breakfast Car washed

From the moment of phoning to book to the arrival the service was effortlessly good. An extremely spacious, well appointed room with a fabulous view of the mountain. Good breakfast however the coffee was a bit of a let down.

very nice and quiet rooms, great breakfast, lovely garden, familiar atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect, for a stopover between Cape Town and the Garden Route. Swellendam has some good Restaurants, apart of that, there ist no nightlife at all...

The new appointed rooms under the roof did take our breath away. You feel immediately at home, the colours are bright and the view onto to the garden is simply beautiful. Aan de Oever is highly recommendable, with exception of the moring coffee. (But the fluffy omelette was divine).

We had a perfect stay at Aan de Oever guest house in Swellendam during our South Africa trip. Unfortunately we stayed for one night only. Very kind advice and personal care for the guests. We felt very comfortable in Swellendam with nice restaurants in walking distance.
