We had a very good nights stay here. The rooms were clean and comfortable and my room had a lovely view of the river. It was very tranquil to sit on the little balcony outside the room. The electric blankets were appreciated as it was so cold. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, ready to give recommendations for restaurants... More

This was a real find on our South Africa trip. Very comfortable, friendly welcome, and well appointed room. Excellent breakfast. I would go out of my way to stay here again. There is a lot to do and see in the area including the Bontebok Park, and the spectacular drive along the R62.

Everything was perfect. Carol was extremely warm and helped reserved a place for us for dinner. The garden is really nice and the place is literally on the bank of a river so you can sit out by the small river to enjoy the view. Definitely stay here if you are in Swellendam.

Carol was a great hostess, the property is beautiful and peaceful, and breakfast was to die for. Also excellent value for money. Also a nice peaceful location by the river. Lots of nice touches in the room and elsewhere around the lodge.

Apart from the unfortunately cold, wet weather, we really enjoyed our single night stay. Our room, Tintinkie, was small but comfortable with a welcome heater on when we arrived. After lights out it was comfortably dark except for the light around the sliding bathroom door. This was not really a train smash though. Breakfast was delightful in a lovely room... More

This is our second time at Aan de Oever. My husband always comes back for that huge and tasty omelette and I love the hospitality and kindness displayed towards us. Carol is an amazing hostess! An extra perk was the washing of our car!

Carol, Fienie and the staff are friendly and helpful. My breakfast favourite was the omelette. My husband and I had to share one as it is huge and delicious. The coffee is made of real good quality beans. The room was comfortable and the view and positioning of the guest house next to the river is beautiful. The location is... More
