We stayed for one night whilst en route to Kynsna. Whilst we were warmly greated and were looking forward to having some tapas for lunch as suggested in a previous e-mail we were told that the chef had not yet arrived and were directed to the town to eat. Not what we expected of a 5 star establishment. Invited to dine in that evening and the complimentary wine tasting was a nice touch. However there was no choice of menu, although the food as presented was enjoyable. Second bottle of wine wine corked and had difficulty in getting this addressed. Lack of attention at dinner let it down. Rooms were comfortable but regretfully we would probably try somewhere else if returning to Swellendam in the future.
