Nestled under the Langeberg Mountains, 220 km from Cape Town along the N2 Garden Route, in the beautiful town of Swellendam in the Overberg region, this magnificent Victorian guesthouse (a parsonage from 1904 until 1974) has welcomed many visitors from all corners of the world. The peaceful settings of the gardens, to the warmth of the splendid decor, and comfort and service to the visitor, guarantee their return.

This is a high quality B&B. We stayed in the cottage in the garden. The room had access to a sitting room and kitchen. Good bed. Decent shower room. Very good value. Nice host. Good breakfast. Booked us into a local restaurant - Powell House = very nice.

We had a great stay at this lovely old Pastory in Swellendam. Wilma and Desmond, our hosts could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Having stayed in quite a few modern villas and hotels it was great to stay in an original, historic building, I believe it is a listed property. Location is great on Voortrekker street in the centre of Swellendam not far off the N2. Restraunt options nearby are good and breakfast at the property was excellent. Many thanks to Wilma and Desmond. Gerry ad Debra

We were exceedingly well looked after by our hosts. They even ensured we had a dinner reservation for our first night and provided plenty of recomdations for lunch the next day after golf. Des cooks a great breakfast and provides good feedback on the 6Nations rugby match.

I always enjoy staying at De Oude Pastorie. The rooms are clean and have all the amenities you can ask for. Des and Wilma are attentive hosts who make an effort with every guest. The room I stayed in this time was very large and comfortable.
