We travelled here as a family group taking 3 rooms, well suites really, for 2 nights. We were unanimous that this was a fabulous place run by friendly and helpful hosts in Andreas and Franziska who have the most wonderful attention to detail. This results in staying in a splendid old Dutch house, converted into a beatiful boutique hotel, everything... More

Second visit to Rothman Manor Andreas and Franziska own and run the place and live next door it is immaculate throughout. This time we stayed in the XL suite upstairs with large lounge, kitchen, bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate shower, two sinks and a huge bedroom suite with balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. If some of the other... More

We spent 4 nights in Swellendam in late February and chose this time to stay at Rothman Manor. We were so pleased we made that choice. Our suite was very comfortable, well furnished, with great attention to detail, including fresh flowers in the room as well as on your pillows and towels in the bathroom. The owners even left a...

We stayed here for 2 nights on our garden route trip from Port Elizabeth. This is how a guest house should be run - Once inside the electric front gates, you appear to be in a different world. A warm welcome from the house manager and later met with the German owners. We stayed in the Morning Sky Suite which... More

We found an Amazing paradise in Swellandam on our SA trip along garden route. Attention to detail can be seen once you come in the front door. Loved the jacuzzi looking out on the Zebra. Breakfast was out of the world. We will be back for a longer stay.

We stayed here last year and were looking for an overnight stop on the way to Oudtshoorn, so we're very happy to return. This must be one of the most immaculately kept guest houses around. The linen, decor, furniture, crockery, etc is chosen with the best of taste. The owners are always very cheerful and welcoming and serve a very... More

We stayed 2 nights here in Morning Sky Suite. The owners Andreas and Franzisca were so welcoming and helpful. Andreas suggested places to visit for our stay and arranged restaurants and taxi's for us. The whole property is well kept, and clean. The grounds are stunning. Breakfasts were fantastic, lots of choice. There is also coffee, tea, fruit and cookies... More

We stayed at Rothman Manor for two nights as part of our South African holiday. What a beautiful and friendly place to stay. Andreas and Franzisca (the owners) could not have been more welcoming. Franzisca's little touches are everywhere, from the silverware at breakfast, to the ornaments around the gardens, through to the flowers on your pillows at bedtime. Everything... More

We stayed 3 nights recently and though we were expecting a lot it was even better. Very luxurious accomodation with excellent attention to detail too many to mention. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was a wonderful experience. Everything beautifully clean ( including our car after its morning wash). There is even a mini game reserve where you... More

Upon arriving one is struck by the beuatiful original Cape Dutch architecture of this estate, three buildings, dating back to 1834. Our Elite Suite was spacious, small dressing room, good large kings size bed, luxurious, large bathroom with all amenities, flat screen in the sitting area. Lavish garden, with a large 12 m swimming pool and even a whirlpool. Towels... More
