I needed a place to just sit and look at nothing. Realy enjoyed my stay. Very friendly and very neat. Will visit again. Awesome vistas. The braai kettle will be a nice touch in winter. I will have to test that in winter.

we stayed here for 3 days/nights and loved all of it. The view(s), the cows, the pool (with a view). The rooms are lovely decorated. The staff gave us a filled BBQ every day, all we had to bring was the meat.
The owner is very helpfull and gave us may tips of what to do.
If you're ever in the neighbourhood visit this place!

Arumvale Country House is everything one dreams of, beautiful, peaceful, a little piece of paradise. Loved strolling through the beautiful gardens, surrounded by farmlands and magnificent mountain ranges. The suites and cottages are all beautifully and tastefully decorated are spotlessly clean and have everything one needs from pure cotton linen to 'Rain' pampering products in the bathroom, such a treat. The staff are hospitable, friendly, thoughtful and helpful. Thank you George, I look forward to spending a lot more time in your amazing guest house.

Guesthouse is located outside of town, 10 min by car from city center. Spectacular view from garden. Small pool. We got a nice apartment. No separate shower. Kitchen not clean. Owners could have shown some more hospitality. Very good value for money.

We loved pretty much everything at Arumvale. The cottage was decorated to our taste with great attention to details to make us as comfortable as possible. Our host and the staff could not have been more helpful and they had a great attitude. The view is outstanding and we loved the cows and various others fowls in the field in front of the cottage. The location is very convenient being close to the center of Swellendam.... if the occasion arises we would definitely go back.
