After leaving the southern cape late in the evening we decided to drive to Swellendam as the sun was setting as we had yet to book a hotel for the evening. We drove in the dark, and while the road was safe, we elected stopping in Swellendam at 9 PM was a good decision. We had

What a pleasure it was to meet two Cowboys from Texas! It was lovely having you stay for the night, could have been longer though. Thank you for this lovely positive review. I certainly appreciate the time you found to write about your stay at MOOLMANSHOF. All the best.

What a fantastic place to stay. This historic house was a rare gem to find Lizette Hendry has done a fantastic job of preserving the character of this historical old building. This is not the glitzy glamour of the high rise 5 star hotel chain, nor is it modern boutique styled

Thank you Stephen for your time and care to write this lovely review. It was also a privilege for me to host you and your lovely family! I always hope that guests will not be disappointed not finding a modern boutique styled guest house in MOOLMANSHOF. It is a trip back in time that I try to recreate so I am very happy if this is how you have experienced it. Such a pity that you were not able to stay longer to experience more of our Historic Swellendam! All the best and hope to see you at MOOLMANSHOF again one day.

Thank you for these kind words Marilia and also for the excellent pics! I so appreciate the time you have taken to comment about MOOLMANSHOF. It was certainly a pleasure for me to meet and host you and your lovely family. Hoping to see you again in summer in the not too distant future so the girls can swim as promised. All the best.

Wonderful self catering apartment for a family in converted stables. Lizette is a wonderful hostess who is very accommodating and helpful. Good value for money and close to restaurants. We loved our stay.

Our stay was wonderful. We enjoyed this beautiful old house. Lizette left us special notes all over the house. The house was clean and very beautiful. We loved the indoor fire as it was very cold the weekend we went to Swellendam. The only thing that was not great was that the
