The hosts Freerk and his very capable wife Helpi, were so gracious in receiving us at their lodge. The breakfast was more than five star class. The most scrumptious coulourful fruit salad ever. I absolutely recommend anyone to stay over at this lodge.

This B&B is located on the corner of Swellendam, in a quiet area and close to the main course. This B&B has Dutch and Malaysian host and hostess. The rooms are basic but clean.

We have enjoyed our stay at Roosje van de Kaap. Friendly and perfect service all over the place. Breakfast - and dinner (!) - were first class! We certainly can recommend booking with Freerk and Helpi.

All good. Very friendly reception. Went beyond the call of duty when they came to fetch us at the restaurant when Eskom turned the lights off on a very dark night. Accommodation was comfortable and clean.
