Johannesburg, South Africa5 contributions1 helpful vote
It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with the Schoone Oordt Country House / family run team. From reservations point up to when we left. The location is very central and perfect walking distance to most restaurants, if you decide not to eat at the beautiful conservatory on site. The food is outstanding, service outstanding and this family run business makes you feel at home. We loved the beautiful setting of the grass and swimming pool area. Rooms are beautiful. Thank you Alison & Richard We look forward to our next stay.

Lovely location and sumptuous rooms are what await you. Also a charming garden and beautiful swimming pool. The personal touch was added by our gracious host, Alison, who we look forward to seeing again on our next trip to Swellendam. We travel here annually and have finally found our favorite hotel.

Stopped at Swellendam on our way to Cape Town. Right from the start our experience was fantastic. We were greeted by Fydney who looked after us superbly. Before checkin we were given scones and tea on the front porch. Check in was done by Alison,the owner, who is delightful. The room was superb. Very comfortable. Fantastic bathroom. The evening meal and breakfast were delicious. We wish we could have stayed longer and will next time.

From the moment we stepped out of the car we received a great welcome by the owner Alison. The rest of the staff was just as charming. We had amazing dinner and breakfast during our one-night stay. During the dinner at the time of dessert a staff member offered to light up the fireplace in our room. When we came back we had the room nicely warmed up and chocolates waiting for us! The room was big, well equipped and extremely comfortable.
