We spent two nights in Aan de Oever and we were sorry we had to leave. What a great place. We had one of the second floor rooms and it was spacious, had its own bath and aircon, and a little private area outside to sit. The staff was wonderful and the breakfast was magnificent!

We have been visiting SA since our honeymoon 30 years ago and Swellendam reminds us of Franscchoek 20 plus years ago. A very pretty place with some delightful and excellent restaurants. I hate referring to places like this as B&B's as they are nothing like a British B&B! This is a small boutique hotel which doesn't have a restaurant like... More

Our host was friendly and very helpful and we immediately felt very welcome. We got an upgraded room, that was both modern, but also full of character. The guest house grounds slope gently down to a small river and are surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains. Relaxing in the garden was a relaxing joy. Swellendam was a lovely relaxing down,...

We had 2 rooms in this delightful guest house which were well appointed and comfortable. The swimming pool should be retitled a plunge pool but was still very welcoming on the very hot day we arrived. Very good breakfast.Woken early by the dawn chorus but hey - it's the country!!

We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely and peaceful. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent. The room and bathroom very clean and neat. Scenery beautiful. I just found the bed slightly uncomfortable, but that could be due to the fact that I have a back problem.

Delightful accommodation and charming hosts. Luxurious and convenient too. We stayed in an upstairs room, suite which was very nicely and tastefully decorated. The garden slopes down to the river and is alive with birds. Only disappointment, the pool is tiny.

I wish we had time to stay longer at Aan de Oover - it was lovely. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Our room (Bokmakierie) was stunning - felt like we were in our own private tree-top room. Such fun to have a bath looking out over the garden and mountains, hearing the river running. Breakfast was stunning - great... More

The extras at this place were amazing. On checkout we were given muffins for the road and our car was hosed down. Great place. Great plunge pool for kids under shade and picturesque setting. Enjoyed our stop over very much.
