Had a very enjoyable stay. We received a friendly welcome with an explanation of where all of the restaurants are situated. Very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were cosy and just what we were looking forward to.

Our party of five senior males enjoyed this guest house very much. It's old charm makes it a pöace to remember. In some of the rooms very comfortable new bath rooms have been built. The back of the house facing the river was partially under repair. When completed it will be a real jewel again. The host was very helpful... More

When you drive up to Aan De Oewer you first see the beautiful building - a Cape Dutch - standing in the shade of a beautiful bountiful tree. The bedrooms are also beautiful. I have stayed in the Barn Owl and Tintinkie rooms. Both with beautiful views of the mountains and gardens respectively. There are lots of birdsong, you can... More

From the first contact it was clear that we were dealing with extremely friendly people. The building is very attractive and the room was immaculate. There was even a personal welcome card and flowers in the room. Breakfast was "out of the book" We will be going there again!

Stayed in the Aan de Oever Guesthouse in April 2015. I would rate this guest house 10/10 for everything. I would place it in the top five places I have stayed in anywhere in the world.

Beautiful, The first day on our way to KKNK, they even washed my car! On my way back from KKNK my car broke down outside Swellendam. Fienie the manger, arranged to fetch us and although they were fully booked arranged other accommodation for us. That is what I call: walk an extra mile!

This place is amazing! From the moment we were welcomed albeit late on our part through to the peacefulness and tranquillity it was perfect. The Barn Owl room was spotless, very spacious and fully equipped. The bath was a most welcome site having been on the go for over 2 weeks. Breakfast was cooked to order and well presented. We...
