We decided to stop in Swellendam during our honeymoon and after sifting thru all the guest houses we settled on this one. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner Fiona, how lovely is she??! What a host!!! We were in the honeymoon mountain view room, splendid room, old style charm and original fixtures and fittings. The gardens are amazing, the morning view spectacular and the breakfast was to die for! I could go on for hours about this place, if you are looking to go somewhere in Swellendam then STAY HERE!!!!
