As Roosje van de Kaap had been strongly recommended by our son and daughter we stayed their and were pleasantly surprised. The couple running it are kind and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful and the meals asre excellent. We recommend Roosje van de Kaap for anyone who wants to see the region and enjoy fine hospitality.

Very cosy place to stay, nice clean rooms for a good price.
Dinner and breakfast were great!
The owners are very nice and willing to help/advise how you spend your time around swellendam. We where here only one night on our way to the winefields but really enjoyed ourselves.

We booked this place after reading Lonely Planet, and was totally impressed with the room and amenities we got for the price.
The views from the balcony was lovely, the quality of the bedding excellent and the hosts were very hospital. We loved the food, that came with Asan sauces and twist. One last tiny bit that really impressed me - there was a pumice stone in the cosy bathroom, which was very thoughtful!

Made a stop-over in the very nice and peaceful town of Swellendamm (worth a visit!) coming from the Garden Route.
The hotel was easy to find and is located in a silent byroad near to the historic Drostdy building. The location is a really old build which has been renovated with attention to the detail.
We booked the "Honeymoon Suite" which offers a big balcony with a really breathtaking view onto the mountains an offers a really cozy interior. We did not used the hotel-own restaurant but heared from guests that they were really surprised by the high quality there. The breakfast was really good and it was also offered to be served on our balcony if wanted (but we prefered the normal terrace at the pool near to the restaurant itself.
The garden is nice and the rooms suitated there seems to be also very nice.

Room Tip: The "Honeymoon Suite" offers a fantastic view and has a big balcony.

The location is excellent, some 20 m from the site of the Drostdy, and very quiet. The place is pleasant and well kept, and the rooms open on a lawn.
The owners were very kind, and the breakfast was very good.
Just to find something to be critic about, the rooms are small.
