Beautiful small hotel

Review of Rothman Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Apr 2024
Beautiful, almost sparkling hotel. It was immaculate everywhere and everything was so clean and shiny. Received a very warm welcome and lots of lovely snacks and fruits in our room, which was cosy and welcoming and looked out onto the pool and beautiful gardens, with zebra and springbok in the rear (enclosed!) area. Breakfast was a delight - again everything fresh and well cooked. We had to leave a day earlier than planned which was no reflection on the hotel at all but the receptionist was very concerned that something was wrong (it wasn't!) which shows their level of care. Also found that our car had been cleaned by a member of staff which was a very nice added touch.

Would highly recommend.

Our only disappointment was that good restaurants were a fair distance away so you would need either a car or taxi to get anywhere. Did not like the restaurant next-door!

Not impressed. No hot water for nearly two days. Fridges that don't get cold and no braai facilities. All of us were also bitten by something that wasn't mosquito's.
The staff were friendly and efficient though.

Settler style lodge, great grounds with zebra and springbok in an enclosure at the end. Also, a pond with lots of weaver birds. Breakfast was good, the staff very helpful and informative. Room was an open suite, large and well equipped. About 3 minutes drive from the centre of Swellendam

Room tip: Too far to walk to most restaurants, but there a few nearby

This hotel is a gem. It is located a the outskirts of Swellendam near some restaurants in two historic early 19th century buildings. It is surrounded by a beautiful garden with springboks and a zebra. There is a small pool. A great breakfast is served. All is very clean.

Reviewed 21 July 2023 via mobile

The staff were lovely and helpful and the facility was nice and comfortable. Breakfast was included and they were extremelv kind to accommodate any type of diet. It's a pretty property and feels safe. The location is also good, and there is a reasonable restaurant next door for dinner. There was nothing to dislike to be honest. The only thing is that there isn't much to do in Swellendam itself, and the load shedding didn't help.

Room tip: This property is suitable for people who wish to stay in one place as there’s nothing to do in town. There’s a pool for the warmer months.
