We had a lovely stay at the Swallows nest. The cottages themselves are so neat and well-kept and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. We promise to be back again soon.

We liked the rooms very much. The bed was comfortable and rhe bathroom very clean. A plus is the fireplace, especially when it gets cold at night. The staff is friendly and welcoming.Breakfast was also good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here, great cape cottages. Staff friendly, yummy breakfasts, good value! We loved that we could walk to the restaurants nearby. Pool smaller than it looks in the pics, but perfect for a dip none the less.

Lovely Chalets, clean, well maintained, great staff, beautiful garden, great breakfasts, walking distance to a number of restaurants, fresh crisp bedding, clean fresh towels and an overall very good experience. The price is a bit high and could reduce by approximately 20% to compete with similar accommodation. Will definitely return to the same establishment on next trip, providing i can...
