What a gem! Perfectly situated in Swellendam with the most breathtaking views of the mountains. The rooms are thoughtfully prepared, even with mosquito spray, the most divine home-baked rusks, and quality shower gel and moisturizer. David and Moira are most welcoming and make you feel at home from the moment you drive in. A must stop when in the area.. in fact, I would highly recommend going to Swellendam just for this treat.

Sometimes one is fortunate to choose a place to spend the night that surprises very pleasantly. Our welcome was very professional and friendly and we were made to feel at home from the outset. The accommodation was absolutely spotless and, as a self-catering establishment, every conceivable need was provided for. By prior arrangement, our hosts very graciously booked us a table at a local restaurant for our evening meal, the food was superb and the experience eating in a 'home' dating back to the 1700's, with a fascinating history, was most memorable. We enjoyed a good breakfast at another restaurant suggested by our hosts, before continuing our journey. During our two week holiday, we stayed at many accommodation establishments and, on reflection, Mountain View stood out head and shoulders above the rest. It is situated in a quiet area, has on-site, secure, parking and great views. Good value for money.

Staying at a B&B is often a hit and miss affair, with many establishments merely offering the owner's second-hand furniture and an over intrusive service. Not here. David & Moira provide an exceptional product in the heart of one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa. The accommodation was exactly what one requires for a stopover in Swellendam. The rooms were all well-appointed, exceptionally clean - and included all the little things that make a stay relaxing and comfortable. The RAIN amenities were a hit in the bathroom; as were the chocolates and water provided in the rooms. I understand that this property is a "favourite" for a number of groups seeking a break along the Garden Route. I can understand why.

The guest house is pristine, the layout of the room was well thought through, enough plugs for cell phones, laptops and many more. Kitchenette has clean prestine dish cloths, cups, plates, bowls, a gas stove for the kettle, the most Devine filter coffee. The guest amenities in the bathroom is fantastic and sweeties, cotton wool and a flower on the dressing table. Breakfast is Devine. Owner and her mother is friendly and professional

We booked two nights at Mountain View for my parents as part of a 5-day road trip for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Mountain View was their favorite of the three places that we booked. It was clean, peaceful, and beautiful. David and Moira were great hosts.

Our one-night stay at Mountain View went far beyond expectations. We enjoyed the tastefully decorated room with many personal touches and attention to detail, a lovely deck with a stunning view of the mountain, a beautiful, well-kept garden and pool, and a hamper breakfast which offered good value for money. Vera was a kind, helpful host.

Mountain View is very comfortable, clean and with a beautiful view of the mountains. The location is close to other tourist attractions and restaurants in the area. The venue has an attractive quest gathering area with swimming pool and garden attracting birds. Can be recommended and is value for money.

Everything about this cozy cottage is perfect for a cold stormy night or perfect sunshine. Feel as if you are in the forest amongst mountains but not actually. Perfect mental break in quiet solitude with great hosts who are flexible to accompany any requests you may have.

Exceeded are expectations. We travel often and this place was outstanding, the attention to detail was impressive .Peaceful , lovely gardens full of birds and a fabulous contemporary studio which was more than enough for our needs. However we also had access to an amazing shared kitchen, dining, seating area with indoor BBQ (outdoor BBQ was also available) . Every thing you could possibly need and more was there for us . All very high specification, just perfect. Lovely hosts and a nice spot for visiting the surrounding national parks including De Hoop .
