We recently spent one night in Swellendam whilst touring the Garden Route/Cape Town area and stayed in a number of hotels and guest houses. Without reservation, I can state that Braeside was comfortably the best of the bunch.
Fiona is a superb host and clearly takes great pride in her business. From the moment we arrived, she went out of her way to be helpful and left us both wishing that we could stay for longer.
