Best guesthouse in ZA

Review of Rothman Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Feb 2023
This is our favourite guesthouse in South Africa,
we were staying there twice in December on the way to the garden route and on the way back.
Mark and Diane are the perfect hosts, they took care of anything we needed.
the rooms are amazing, you have everything you need, and they give attention to all the small details, which gives you a great feeling of a valued guest.
The garden is amazing, and of course the animals. its the best guesthouse that we experienced in South Africa, and we cant wait to come again.

WOW!!! Just an amazing idyllic setting to relax and enjoy.
Rooms are just beautiful and exceptionally clean.
The hosts Diane and Mark have perfected everything down too the last detail including the fabulous breakfast.
Highly recommended for a stay with all the 5 star treatment at a very reasonable price.
Just book it and enjoy the ambience.

During our trip to south africa we visited Swellendam on 18/1/23 and booked to stay at rothman manor. The hotel was very beautiful and our room excellent. unfortunately on the day we arrived the whole area had a problem with electricity. Mark the owner of the hotel made every effort to have a beautiful stay. Really if there is a crisis management award he should get it. Thanks Mark

When one wishes to start off on the garden route, it is imperative to "make a draai" aka take some time to visit Swellendam. One of the oldest towns in SA, the Drosdy museum is worth a visit and make sure to have lunch (or dinner) at the Republiek restaurant opposite the road. But 1st check in at Rothman where you will find an island of peace, beauty and friendliness.
The rooms are amazing, breakfast is super, the jacuzzi needs to be tried and make sure to get a bottle of bubbly while you look out over the zebra and springbokkies in the garden. Overall wonderful experience that deserves a stay of 3 nights at least.

What a wonderful place and experience. Everything is thoughtfully done and immaculate, from the rooms to the gardens. Warm welcome, good, unobtrusive service, sparkling clean, and wonderful touches everywhere. In town, but feels like a country retreat. Definitely a place to come back to.

What a great place to stay…everything top class. The rooms are spacious and everything from the beds to bedding ,towels etc are all top quality. The grounds surrounding the property are spacious with a lovely salt water pool completing the package.
Breakfast is served on a beautiful patio with lovely views.
Andreus and his wife are the perfect hosts.
