Aan de Oever Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 40 Swellendam B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 26, 2014

The guesthouse is set in a most idyllic spot next to the river, so peaceful and relaxing. The staff were most friendly and helpful, would have been good to have them on-site all the time. The bathroom missed an excellent rating.
Would certainly stay there again.

Our stay at the lovely guesthouse Aan de Oever was great from the first till the last minute. A very warm welcom, thoughtfull in every detail and a marvellous room with a view on the garden and the mountains. Nicely decorated as well.
We will certainly come back. And very much appreciated, the delicious muffins as a gift on departure.

Absolutely lovely room and service. Great! But you should not call your pool a swimming pool. This is not a swimming pool at all. It is a bath to wash your feet. This is however the only possible complaint because the rest is excellent!

The car wash is a good idea! Excellent breakfast. Recommend Field & Fork for dinner - 5 minutes walk only. Well worth a stroll into town (10 mins) and a visit to the church. The guide provided by reception was useful.

Unfortunately, we had booked only one night in this miraculous inn. The staff was so friendly, the room was furnished largely and nicely. The next morning even our car was washed. What service. Any time with pleasure again!

we stayed at the Aan de Oever for two nights and enjoyed the beautiful garden and the smal swimmingpool. The breakfast served on the terasse was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. On top of that is the Price very reasonable.
