Nestled under the Langeberg Mountains, 220 km from Cape Town along the N2 Garden Route, in the beautiful town of Swellendam in the Overberg region, this magnificent Victorian guesthouse (a parsonage from 1904 until 1974) has welcomed many visitors from all corners of the world. The peaceful settings of the gardens, to the warmth of the splendid decor, and comfort and service to the visitor, guarantee their return. Enjoy the elegance in a stately historic manor house, or in the garden cottage rooms each with a private entrance. Relax in the magnificent landscaped garden, or enjoy the African sun at the large salt-based swimming pool. A scrumptious breakfast is personally prepared by the owners using fresh local produce and from their garden. Dutch, German, English and Afrikaans are spoken.

The guesthouse is beautiful, easy to find and walking distance from great restaurants. The owners are wonderful, extremely welcoming and helpful. We were there for a wedding and could not have chosen a better place to stay! Thank you, we will definitely visit again.

We stayed just one night in the "Pharao"-suite, however would have loved to spent more time! The room was spacious with a large terrace and bathroom, all stylish designed with regard to the history of the building. The owners were always very attentive in fulfilling our wishes.

Wilma is a very friendly owner and host. She helps her clients/guests and serves with high effort and engagement. She takes care that all is perfect. Very nice place to stay. Recommended, although the city is not one of the most interesting ones.
