From arrival to departure a homey feel was abundant. The room was adequate for the night and the pool, common dining and sitting room were comfortable, social, and a pleasure. The hosts were friendly and solicitous to one's every need.

On our trip though South Africa, we stopped for one night at the View, Swellendam. The B&B is wonderful, we had a big room (King Size Bed), Bath with a view (not seeable from the outside).The house has a pool and a Sundeck which is also perfect for viewing the stars. Restaurants are less than 5 Minutes away, Swellendam is very beautiful and has a lot of history - which Patrick and Claire can tell you a lot about. Also the breakfast ist lovely. We had a great stay and learned a lot about South African History as well. Nearby ist the Bontebok Park which is a must see.

This location was great & easy to find, the very first left as you get in from Plett/Knysna-side. My room was very comfy, spacious, lovely decor and style, enjoyed the heated blanket. There was a bit of noise in the morning from the kitchen which woke me up unfortunately, the TV didn't work when I tried to conceal the noise however the owner was friendly and helpful and also allowed me to stay an extra hour to sleep-in, that was very kind. He also offered a later time for breakfast.

I enjoyed the hospitality and the comfort at the Swellendam very much. Everything was just perfect, from the room, accessoires (Netflix) and the super comfi bed. Also the breakfast the next morning at the fireplace with the two nice dogs around! :)

Fantastic accommodation in beautiful surroundings - excellent bed, breakfast and facilities and Patrick was a great source of information regarding routes to follow on my road trip. The area around Swellendam is very scenic - mountains, forests, lovely villages - and not too far from the largest astronomy telescope, SALT, in the southern hemisphere, in Sutherland.

Such a nice and relaxed place. Great big rooms with comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Patrick is the best host! He even offered to make dinner and gave me a lift to start a hike in the Marloth Reserve. Breakfast was great too! Definitly recommend staying in this lovely place :-)

This guest house is ideally situated, you can leave the car and walk to restaurants, shops and museums. The room was lovely but on the smaller side for South African standards (or what I've seen so far), nicely furnished with the imposing mountain view. Bathroom with stand-up shower was clean. The garden and the pool were very inviting, unfortunately, I didn't have the time to use either. Patrick was very welcoming and gave me valuable information about the restaurants in Swellendam (as it was Sunday, not many were open), and for my further trip. Breakfast on the sun deck with the mountain view was a delight. Only drawback: walls are very thin and you can hear all the doors being opened and shut (but resting hours were respected, so this was not really a problem).

The View Swellendam is such a beautiful place, great views from the bulconies and wonderful hosts! It is safe, clean and homey. Breakfast was delicious, thank you for the wonderful service. Shops are also close by which made things so easy.
