The accommodation was clean, comfortable and I enjoyed the peace of the garden from my patio. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I felt safe being in a gated accommodation and offstreet parking.

Property's Favourite Review
The service is excellant. From the moment we arrived (early) we felt very welcome. Everything was spick and span. My bed was so comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious. The pool and surrounds super and comfortable. The only hassle was that there was no airconditioning but this is due to the fact that this is a historic building and the management will be sorting this out soon. I want to go back!

At short notice I had to stay an extra night for a business trip and the accommodation I was at wasn't available for another night. I basically only slept over (got in late the night left early the morning). I checked in earlier just to get the keys, and the staff were super friendly and helpful. I would definitely consider staying here again next time I'm in the area. The grounds are very nicely manicured and looks inviting to spend some time there just relaxing.

We stayed at Elianthe when we went to Swellendam for a wedding. We were a big group that stayed at the guesthouse and everyone was accommodated. The staff were friendly and attentive. The rooms were spotless and the interior is done beautifully. Will definitely recommend it to anyone.
