Although we only spent one night in this wonderful guesthouse, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, the great garden and the comfortable terrace. We were lucky to get a free update on one of the nice rooms upstairs! The owner welcomed us very cordially and gave us a lot of tips for dinner in Swellendam. Also we got a very nice... More

After three weeks on safari we were looking for a little luxury. We arrived mid-afternoon following a stunning drive from Cape Town to a quiet street in the charming village of Swellendam. We were warmly greeted and shown our room at the back of the house, with an inviting deck, chairs and a lounge with pads. This overlooked a lovely... More

Our hostess was very welcoming, and when we were shown around the back to our room we were delighted by the garden and the outlook of the mountains. The room itself was large, and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was also very nice, and I enjoyed a soak in the bathtub. We appreciated the electric heater in the room, and... More

We booked the room the day prior our arrival and I guess we were just lucky. Although we booked the standard room we certainly felt “upgraded” by getting the room on the top floor. The room was fantastic, simply huge and with a bath tub right in the middle. The moment we saw the tub we felt that we were... More

The best B&B I have recently been at. The room was in an immaculate condition and the warmth of the heater as well as the electric blanket just gave it that extra bit of love. Definitely a place to come back to :)

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.

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
