We stayed in the Hideaway just for one night, but this was more then enough to know why it is rated with 5 stars. From the beginning till the end end we were very warm welcomed by Jackie and Stephen. We had 2 rooms which were both lovely situated at their beautifeul rose garden.
It is very quiet located and onm walking distance of the restaurant and attractions Swellendam has to offer Our rooms were very well equipped with everything you might need and more. Also the personal attention and details were more then 100%. In the evening we joined theme for a glass of wine at their fireplace and afterwards we had a very good dinner in the restaurant Stephen had arranged for us.It was in a old Kaap Hollands building which made it very romantic.
The breakfast the next morning was very completed with home made Jam, muffins, bread etc.
And then they provided us with a (kind of) doggy bag so we could take the muffins whit us to have a lovely picknick in the afternoon.
If we would ever visit South Africa, Swellendam, again, we know now which place to stay.
