There was no-one around when we arrived, so we had to go away and come back later! Despite the Lonely Planet saying they do good dinners, they weren't cooking when we stayed as we were the only ones there. Breakfast was overpriced and the person working wouldn't let me make a local call despite offering to pay - I had to go into town which is a 10-15 minute walk. Room was okay but quite cold - they did provide extra blankets though. Lots of mosquitoes in the room.

Halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route it is ideally situated to hike or horse ride through indigenous forests or wander through the picturesque village. Beneath the most spectacular peaks of the Langeberg Mountains Swellendam is the 3rd oldest magisterial district in South Africa with plenty of inspiring and peaceful experiences. Sit around our welcome fire under starry skies and enjoy the countryside. ... more less
