My husband and I absolutely loved this place! You feel welcome and at home as soon as you set foot in reception. Management will go the extra mile to meet your every need. We had dinner at 'Patat restaurant' and it was well worth it. They also have a good wine list. Rooms are spacious and well decorated. Friendly and... More

We can't say enough about this incredible lodge set in the most spectacular setting. This really is our home away from home. It feels like visiting family when we go back there. Truly the BEST accommodation and hospitality in the region. Service Excellence, without a doubt! Thank you for a wonderful visit, every time.

perfect family stop to/from Swartberg Pass. Very warm hospitality and great food! the Manor set at the best view of Swartberg Mountain. There are few interesting places to visit nearby. Easy to spend a weekend or long weekend over there.

The owner, Riaan, help me fixed a problem on my car and his wife Leonie was very friendly and helpful. The outside warm shower is a must. The fig jam is delicious and the freshly baked breakfast muffins are amazing. *(a word... More

This place far exceeded my expectations. The setting was beautiful, the service was great, and the on site restaurant was an extra plus. The room was great, but the bed was too firm and made for a rough night sleep, though. Luckily, the 5 stars of everything else clearly made up for the uncomfortable bed.

A very nice guesthouse at the foot of the Swartberg mountain with beautiful well-kept rooms, a pool and standing in the imposing nature. The personal welcome in Afrikaans was a warm welcome. A great night in a good bed!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the farm "Voorbedacht" situated in the Cango Valley at the foot of the world-renowned Swartberg Pass. The picturesque panoramic view of the Swartberg Mountains will bring comfort to anyone that wants to "get away from it all" and simply soak up the peace of its tranquil surroundings.The farm was purchased in 2003 and welcomed its first guests in February 2005. The extraordinary views of the Swartberg Mountain from the veranda of the original farmhouse compelled us to create a venue where more people could share in the tranquillity and serenity of this beautiful valley."Voorbedacht" farm is a working farm, which offers our guests the unique opportunity to explore and experience the true essence of subsistence farming in the Little Karoo. Among the various agricultural products farmed, we also farm livestock such as, cattle, sheep and ostriches. Daily walks on the farm allow guests to experience the peace and serenity of this beautiful valley, while for the more "wild at heart"; mountain bikes are available to explore the more rugged terrain. ... more   less
