It depends on your expectations, and this place is more a motel than a hotel, but it is perfectly acceptable for a night, or maybe two. it needs a face-lift, but is clean, and the staff are friendly, if casual. Our bedroom/bathroom were adequate. Apparently, there is little competition in the area so the Swellengrebel can set its own standards. The Sports Bar (part of the hotel but also entered from the street) is worth a visit to join the locals enjoying their rugby and cricket on T.V.screens. The food is only average by S.African standards. We were entertained by a small male voice choir after our evening meal - there is little to see or do in the town.
All in all, an okay place to stop at for a short time when touring the area.
