“Very good, quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Nice setting, old dutch style cottages, friendly staff, very quiet (as we were the only one staying!), walking distance from the main street and nice restaurants as the kitchen was exceptionnaly close when we were there.

The breakfast was nice (good selection and a cooked breakfast).

Beautiful house and outside areas, bright, airy and stylish room, breathing relaxation and harmony, hosts and staff very friendly.Complimentary Sherry very nice!
Maybe bathroom could do with a painting too, and the coach shouldn't park in front of the hotel, but a bit up the street.
Breakfast at Burgundy's is excellent with terrific view to the ocean.must be super in the whaling season!

A great bed and breakfast in the historic town of Swellendam. We started off the evening with a complementary drink next to the pool, overlooking the mountains. A beautiful English breakfast was served under huge Oke trees in the morning. Freerk (the owner) gave us a great recommendation on dinner. A very relaxing stay!

We stayed in the honeymoon suite which has stunning views, even if the accommodation itself is a little faded. The B&B is a pleasant walk to the main street, hosts are friendly and the Cape Malay food in the restaurant was fantastic.

Lovely in every way - peaceful, particularly gracious staff, beautifully prepared and presented dinner and breakfast - perfect location to just park the car and explore Swellendam on foot - South Africa has the best B&Bs - this is one of them

I cannot wait to return to Roosje van de Kaap. The hosts make us feel welcome and the rooms are exquisite. The food in their restaurant is excellent too. There is lots to do within walking distance (Drostdy Museum, restaurants, etc.) but it is also a great place to just unwind and relax!
