We had two very spacious rooms with a nice view on the garden. It was a pity that we could not stay longer in this nice and quiet B&B. The Breakfast was good. Swellendam is a nice white quiet little town with an interesting historic museum.

We only stayed for 1 night but wished it could have been longer. This guest house deserves its 4 star grading and we think is very close to 5 stars. Our room was well appointed with virtually everything one could wish for including electric blankets for the cold nights. Breakfast was well presented with a very good variety, from cereals,... More

What a great place to stay ! From the time I booked in for 2 nights I can honestly say I only had good service, thx Fienie I will surely be back if I visit Swellendam again. A nice touch was the complimentary car wash every morning.

Aan de Oever is a lovely guesthouse on the banks of the river in Swellendam with a beautiful view of the mountains. It is so peaceful sitting on the balcony listening to the sound of the river flowing and the birds chirping. The rooms are large and very comfortable with electric blankets on the beds for those cold winter evenings.... More

in the middle of a dream it happened to me to arrive to this fantastic B&B. My room was big like an appartment with king size bed, little kitchen, huge bathroom. the atmosphere was like being in the middle of the nature a kind of resort. Breakfast was big, tasty and original. I just wish I will go back soon.... More

Set in a very quiet residential street not far from the centre of town and the restaurants. A very nice room in very nice surroundings with a beautiful garden. The breakfast is one of the best I have had in a guesthouse. If you are travelling the garden route and decide to break your journey in Swellendam, I would recommend... More

Stopped here on way to and back from Plettenberg Bay and were not disappointed. Both rooms were well appointed with everything we needed and the added bonus of bird watching from the verandahs (stoeps!) Great choices at breakfast and loved trying all the local jams. Fienie recommended 2 local restaurants within walking distance which were amongst our best eating experiences... More

Our group of 8 stayed at Aan de Oever for one night. It was delightful and cosy, with Nadia an excellent host. We would have liked to stay longer. Breakfast was excellent, as were the gardens while the view of the Black Mountains was stunning.

This B&B is in a lovely spot next to the river, very quiet and comfortable. Several restaurants in walking distance, good breakfast, and car was washed by morning. This was a brief stopover for us, so didn't explore the town.
