A wonderful boutique hotel
Review of Rothman Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 05 Mar 2022
A wonderful experience. From the moment you arrive in the extensive and well manicured grounds you are in an oasis of calm and luxury. The rooms are well appointed and finished to a very high standard. The service is understated but at the same time they cater for your every need. We couldn’t fault the place and would highly recommend it to any travellers wanting something special. Our only regret was we didn’t stay longer !

This venue truly deserves it's five star rating.
Excellent hosting by Andreas and Fransiska at this beautifully appointed guest house. Very good breakfast, comfortable and spacious suite with beautiful views of the lovely grounds.
10 out of 10 for cleanliness.
We wish we were staying longer and will return.

We were staying at the Rothman manor for 2 nights, and loved it so much, that we didnt want to leave.
The place is so beautiful, and so clean, perfect pool and hot tub, they also have some animals like Zebra and Springbok, which is amzaing. The garden is huge as well.
Andreas is such a perfect host, and helped us with everything before we arrive, and during our stay.
Breakfast was really good, great selection of cheeses and cold meats, as well as fruits, jogurt, eggs, and actually anything you need in order to start your day.
There is a lounge where you can have coffee, or just sit and relax.
We were staying in the Suite Africa, which is so beautiful, they really make an effort to give attention to all the small details so you will have anything you need.
This was definetely our best guesthouse experience in South Africa, and we cannot wait to come back.

Rothman Manor is set amongst beautiful countryside. The main building in which we stayed was full of character and has preservation status but did not compromised on comfort. The grounds are relaxing with a nice pool in which to relax. Breakfast was cooked to order and very good. Andreas our host could not do enough to help. We will return the next time we are in the Western Cape.

This is the third time we've stayed at Rothman Manor, immaculately clean, super facilities, great pool, hot tub overlooking springbok and zebra, and super breakfast!
We will return and strongly recommend this 5 star guest house in Swellendam.
A gentle stroll to some fabulous restaurants.

Rothman Manor in Swellendam is an excellent first stopover point if you are travelling out of Cape Town to the Garden Route and beyond. Conveniently situated off the N2, the rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished. There is a traditional pizzeria right next door and other traditional restaurants within a short taxi ride if needed. Excellent home cooked breakfasts are served on a patio within the garden to the rear of the property. The owners are very attentive to all requests. A pleasurable stay.
