My wife and I had a truly lovely stay in Swellendam for a night recently. Wonderful place. Delicious food. Delightful accommodation and hosting.

This magnificent country estate is a wonderful retreat for visitors, both local & international. The 2 owners go out of their way for their guests and make you feel right at home. I had one of my best meals ever during my stay. Augusta's intimate African Kitchen provided a 5 course dinner , each of which was a sensory surprise!
If you can stay for more than one night, that is a good way to absorb the experience.
Very friendly and very hospitality. They want to please their guests on every possible way. If you miss anything, just ask and they will try to provide everything you want. They also have dinners on certain evenings where you can even learn to cook the dinner yourselves, they even have their own great red and white wine.
The rooms are very clean and are very nice decorated.
You can't imagine the breakfast you get, they make almost everything themselves, their motto is: we don't want you to go for lunch, because that means: you didn't get a good breakfast with us!
But to keep this review short: definitely a place to come back to (and one thing is for sure: we will!)
See you next year!!!
We agree with all the positive comments that have already been written about Augusta the Mist and would like to add:
It is great when the owners offer your favorite series on dvd from their personal collection.
We loved the wine selection, the onion tarte tatin and the malva pudding! The attention to detail added to the whole picture of this lovely B&B.
Beautiful estate with enchanted garden, super friendly owners, fantastic interiors with interesting history, nice art, good music, home-made delicious food… Michel and Henk think about every detail making our stay memorable.
