Impangele B and B & Self Catering Cottage
Ranked #21 of 39 Swellendam B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Centrally located in Swellendam this B&B served us well. Comfortable beds and a very good breakfast.
Themed rooms (giraffe and zebra) makes you feel you've been in a game park - which may be rather OTT for some! It certainly made us smile!

The owners of this guest house makes you really feel at home. From the beginning until the end of your stay he will take care of you and your well being as if you were a member of his family. Rooms are old but nice decorated. If you are looking for a 5 stars hotel, dont go there! If you are looking for a nice, friendly safe B&B without paying too much but having a great service, this is the right place!

I am a frequent business traveler to Swellendam and stay only at Impangele. I have stayed at a couple of other B&B´s in town at first but after staying at Impangele, I got hooked. Fact is that value for money wise i cant see how you could get better. Apart from the value, the whole setup is very comfortable, neat and clean and quite interestingly styled. Dave and Amanda are the perfect hosts, there when you need them but never in your face at all times. This adds to the comfort by allowing you to relax and feel at home.

Room Tip: Any of the 3 animal themed rooms in the main house is good. If in a group take the cottage.

Great place to stay, but a small amount of maintenance would go a long way in improving cottage. Hosts were great, and breakfast not more complete. Access to garden and proximity to downtown Swellendam left nothing to be desired.

I challenge any other establishment in the area to equal or better the experience one has when staying at Impangele.The hosts David 7 Amanda are like having folk kin and nothing is to much trouble for them.The breakfast buffet is one that equals or surpasses and five star establishment. I wish these to pioneering entrepreneurs the very best with wonderful B&B in the future.

Great weekend with a very warm host and hostess and a lovely house with all the necessary amenities. My friends and I enjoyed ourselves even though we wee forced to stay indoors for most of the time because of the rain. The indoor braai was a great help as well as the freedom to enjoy ourselves as much as we wanted.

Actualy stayed here in March 2012 for 1 night - so a bit late with the review. We were on route from Cape Town to Knysna, and this was a perfect half way break in the journey.

The owners David & Amanda were great & put us in the Zebra room, just so over the top, that the things you can get in zebra pattern was beyond our imagination, the photos of us in the zebra bath-robes(complete with hoods with ears) will keep us laughing into our old age.

The recomendation as to where to eat was spot on, thank you.

The accomodation was clean comfortable & faultless, and the breakfast in the morning set us up for the day.

Would love to go back if I can.

Room Tip: Zebra room for a laugh.
