This is an excellent stop over along the Garden Route and worth a 2 night stop over. The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. The attention to detail is wonderful, drinks and cake when you arrive and car cleaned when you leave. The breakfasts are a bountiful 3 course meal! The evening meals are special. The garden and swimming pool...

Nice old colonial style building with very nice staff. Features a small pool area and the staff is amazingly friendly. Location is right in the center of Swellendam. Even tough I was ill in bed, I enjoyed my stay as good as I could. Negatives: My mom ate at the restaurant and didn't really like it.

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, with our car beautifully cleaned, the service was faultless. This elegant hotel has been beautifully renovated and restored and it was an absolute pleasure to spend a night here. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was delicious; breakfast was also superb. Can't recommend enough and...

This was our third hotel on our way along the garden route in South Africa. We had already looked this hotel up on trip advisor and knew it would be good, however it was excellent. The welcome we received was warm and the home made iced lemon was great, just what we needed after a car journey. We were housed...

This is the most beautiful place to stay! We were welcomed with a drink and tea and scones and shown to a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the gardens with swimming pool.

This place was just amazing. The owners and management went out of their way to make sure everything was to our liking. The accommodations are cozy and comfortable, with big beds, huge bathrooms, and even fireplaces (not that we needed them in February). Breakfasts were wonderful, and our dinner there was quite tasty too. The common areas of the house...
