We stayed here for 1 night on a recent visit to South Africa. Great family room and perfect service. Staff very attentive and personal welcome from the owner at breakfast. Woke to find our car had been washed. Highly recommend.

We are difficult to satisfy, but we found our stay at Schoone Oordt satisfying in every area.
The staff were friendly and professional, and the Honeymoon Suite was very relaxing and private, just what we wanted.
We will definitely return.

Room Tip: If you don't like steps, some rooms are almost on the level of the parking.

the scenery, the rooms, the conservatory, the atmosphere, the combination of cosy while still enjoying large open spaces, the unsurpassed attention to detail, the impeccable service without being invasive, the incredible food, makes schoone oordt undoubtedly my new favorite place. the cost may seem high to a local, yet value for money is a definite here. all the added extras & quality take five star to another level. for a special occasion or just a night away to relax & unwind, it just doesn't get any better, summer or winter.

Room Tip: they are all amazing

We are a family of 6 and we stopped in Swellendam while completing our garden route: the town is beautiful, the Schoone Oordt is an amazing country house, lovely restructured by the owner and managed by the welcoming staff; the rooms are large and very well kept, great attention to all the little details, the dinner was a star-level experience - we loved it !

Very well decorated, old style but very well maintained. The rooms are very comfortable and you will find a fire place in each room! The service is a five stars one and the breakfast is super! I really recommend it if you pass through Swellendam. Great place.
