Truly magic the stay in this property. The location first as the manor is nested at the footstep of the swartberg pass. The scenery is just breathtaking. The road heading to the manor is also worth the ride. Yes it is a bit far away from many things BUT aren't good thing and priceless pieces just around the corner? Yes it's worth making it special that make the experience a unique one.

For some of you who did not know that the manor also had a restaurant, there is a great one called Patat.
Attention to details, again the view of the restaurant, facing the mountain. The food was superb with diverse options. The staff was simply fantastic. The wine list - as far as I recall - was exactly what I wanted... great Sauvignon from SA to start then a Pinotage but they also serve Shiraz and other grapes.

The next morning - early riser normally when I travel to the western part of the world - breakfast was simple yet, serving freshly made products. Even though I was up at 6.45 am at the breakfast area, they helped me with all the things I wanted.

Places like the Swartberg manor should be on the top list of places to visit for its location, participation in developing the tourism in this part of Karoo region.

Many thanks to the team and Leonie and her husband for the hospitality and the path they indicated to reach Capetown - avoiding the nationals highways.

We stayed in November. The room we were in was nice, small but clean and had everything we wanted. We did have problems with the people in the room next to us as they argued very loudly but not the hotels fault. We were however disappointed with the restaurant. First night they got my order wrong and food was cold. Second night bbq and food also cold. Breakfast no better, it was cold, nothing keeping hot food warm at buffet which we had everywhere else we stayed. I ended up with an upset stomach from the food affecting the few days after we stayed here.

A lovely relaxing place to stay after a long drive over the swartberg pass.
Staff very pleasant, rooms all individual and special.
The food was served in the dining room or on the terrace overlooking a stunning view
of the mountains. All in all a place we always make a point of returning to.
