Firstly, great, great value for money. In an expensive town like Swellendam, it was so nice to find accommodation that was both affordable and comfortable as well as being very close to the historic centre of the town. Although the room was quite small, it was more than adequate. One of the cleanest rooms I've stayed in, it was very tastefully furnished and the owners had thought of everything - including beautiful linen! The gardens are sumptuous and the setting is quiet - one is hardly aware that the town centre is so close by. Breakfast was good and the only negative I have is that the dining room was very cold - a fire in the fireplace would have been great! The owners were extremely attentive, offering us coffee, wine, extra heaters, etc. The location is also great because of all the historic buildings in the area, set amongst tree lined streets - makes for beautiful walks. All in all, highly recommended!
