Beautiful quaint guesthouse in a quiet location and easily accessible off the N2. Perfect stopover spot recommended to us by friends. Will definitely be coming again. They apparently have a great restaurant on-site but this was closed at the time of our visit due to the pandemic. We look forward to trying it next time.

Super friendly and kind. Attention to detail, beautiful decor, comfortable bed. Delicious breakfast. Feels like bit of Swellendam history. It was a hot weekend but due to the historical building method the room was cool and comfortable. What a treat to be had.

This was a two night stop over on our way back to Capetown. This is a beautifully restored and appointed guest house in centre of Swellendam close to 2 very good restaurants and the fascinating Drosty museum. The breakfast room is absolutely beautiful with friendly staff and very good breakfast made to order. Bedroom is very comfortable but the bathroom is downstairs from the bedroom with some stairs to negotiate- and this is the only reason I have given 4 stars and and not 5.

We had an wonderful dinner at your restaurant last night. It was one of the best beef fillet I have ever had to date! Perfectly prepared and the Paris butter on top that melts into the fillet was to die for.

Welcomed by the most friendly staff on arrival ,who are absolutely service and guest focused The rooms are comfortable with all your needs taken care of - bathrooms are downstairs though which could be a problem for some . The restaurant on site is very convenient and the food good Well worth a visit when staying over in Swellendam
