This charming Bed and Breakfast is located near the N2 beside the river and within walking distance of restaurants. Lovely gardens and grounds. Good breakfast and friendly host. Fresh rose buds greeted us on the beds and bath...charming.

We used this accommodation in Swellendam on route to the Overberg region and whale watching. All our guests were quite happy with their rooms. We found the service was excellent and rooms were well equipped with hot drinks etc. The bus and trailer were cleaned the morning we left and the guesthouse manager provided us with up to date information...

Our 2nd stay here. We were not dissapointed. Great room. Only slight criticism is the variety at breakfast. For the price perhaps a wider selection? View is stunning. Staff helpful. Would stay there again

What a gem of a guesthouse. We had an enormous room with a terrace overlooking a pool, pond, manicured gardens and spectacular mountains. All the little touches had been thought of: fresh roses in the room and on breakfast table, rusks for coffee, dressing gowns. The highlight for me was a bath with legs within the room! Our welcome was... More

Really nice place with lovely staff. We arrived after last checkin time without prior notice just to find the staff was waiting for us with a free upgrade of room. When checking out we received some cakes to go.

We went in this guest house because our previous booking has been denied. We understood quickly how lucky we were. The house is well located and very pretty. Moreover, people are really taking care of their guests.

Stayed for - sadly - one night only at the end of a road trip through the Eastern and Western Cape. As others have commented, Aan de Oever is in a beautiful location with superb views. The room we had was beautifully finished, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable with lots of thoughtful little touches throughout. Add in the Cape Dutch character... More
