A beautiful room with so many lovely touches - fresh roses, welcome port and chocolate, tea and coffee, sharon fruit, a clean vehicle and many other helpful gifts to make our stay so lovely!

The Aan de Oever (next to the river) is a wonderful experience. The Cape Dutch home and gardens are beautiful. We were greeted (after booking via Trip Advisor!) with a complimentary upgrade... More

We had a luxurious and comfortable stay and received helpful advice from the staff. Swellendam is worth exploring in detail, especially the church and museum. Coming early on in our trip the visit helped us to sense aspects of heritage that informed us for later on.

A very comfortable base for exploring the area, with beautiful views of the mountains from our bedroom veranda. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and we would stay again if we were returning to Swellendam.
