We arrived here from our previous night at the De Kloof Luxury Estate in Swellendam. Having been here 10 years ago I knew what to expect. I wasn't disappointed. Our little manor house (cottage) could have slept 6 and was very cosy. We stayed 2 nights and booked a trip on the lagoon on the second day. We had considered an early morning trip to watch whales, but we don't do early mornings any more. When we sighted whales from our boat in the lagoon and they moved to within 100 meres of the boat, we were delighted. Both evening meals were taken at the Bell Inn, a short walk from our accommodation. we were delighted with the fare served up. Special mention must go to Geoffrey, the breakfast waiter and general help. Everything was 'number one' or 'super'. Only small gripe was the charge for Wi-Fi and laundry.
