“Absolutely recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2009

This must be one of the best bed & breakfast ever. The historic house has total and absolute charm, rooms have been decorated with great taste, the place really oozes a vintage-luxury atmosphere. The owner is friendliness-in-person and cooks the most beautiful (and tasty!) breakfasts. Safe car parking is available on the premises. The centre of Swellendam is one kilometer away (an easy car ride), good restaurants (try the Old Mill) are available within walking distance. We would immediately come back here. Highly, highly recommended.

Lorraine and Hilda made us so welcome, nothing was to much trouble. From the amazing and beautifuly presented breakfast, to the advice on where to visit they did all they could to make our 2 nights very special.
We had the run of the house and we were encouraged to make ourselves at home, they even had the car washed for us.
The decor was a little too 'twee' for my taste, but this did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay. The men thought it was incredible!!

We stayed for two nights at the MOOLMANSHOF B&B itssaid to be the oldest house standing in Swellendam ,The main house has three bedrooms and when westayed there were just the 4 of us.Everything is old and beautfully furnished.The owner Lizette was away but her friend Lorraine who looked after the house was so friendly.The Breakfast was so well presented it could have been a 5 star hotel. I cannot praise the B&B enough there is a small pool in the garden and we had the run of the house--i would go back tomorrow .In 4 weeks in SA this was the best by far.
