Wer had a wonderful stay in this little guesthouse, albeit short. This is a magical little place in an exquisite location. Our host was incredibly welcoming, helpful and friendly, and the room was comfortable and clean. Great value-for money!

We had such a peaceful stay, and we had everything we needed. The view, the mountains, the farm animals all attributed to our rest. My husband said it was great to have all that in our backyard for the duration of our stay. Our stay was too short and we would love to come back. The only negative for us was that this particular cottage never had a shower.

What a surprise! Arumvale is a little slice of heaven perfectly placed between the Garden Route and the Winelands. The room was perfect with an amazing view of the moutains. All the little details were just right, including how they accomodated our children. This is a place you will never want to leave - we will be back! Thank you George!

Very clean, cozy accommodation in beautiful location. Watched mountains as often as possible and kids had a great time playing on grass, with cats and dog.

Sitting inside on comfortable couches with fireplace was brilliant.

Highly recommended.

My husband and I booked this as a stop-over on our way from George to Cape Town and wish we had more time to spend there! Unfortunately, we arrived later than planned, but the welcome was fantastic and we had no problem settling in to our self catering cottage. The Weber braai was all set up for us to use and after showing us all the amenities available, the host left us to enjoy our evening. The views from our bedroom the following morning were outstanding. The pool was a treat early in the morning and we really didn't want to leave!! If we make the same trip again, we will definitely re-visit. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Our unit did back on to the road, but as it is an out of town location, the traffic was minimal.

Our family spent the night at Arumvale Country House. The room was excellent! With a kitchen, lounge and bedroom. Plenty of space, great value for money. Cozy, upmarket, new and clean! Would recommend it all.

Our little family (myself, husband and 7 month old baba) spent 3 evenings at Arumvale. What a lovely experience! Superb service, spacious and clean rooms, lush gardens, close proximity to town, beautiful views...I would definitely recommend it for a Swellendam visit.
