My husband and I spent two nights at De Companjie as part of our honeymoon. We loved everything about this charming spot - thoughtful and friendly owners, fantastic decor, EPIC breakfast, and location close to shops and galleries. We felt so welcome and at home!...More

Situated in the picturesque town of Swellendam, a historical building built in 1832 among large oak trees, restored to a luxurious retreat for the sophisticated traveler; a mix of old and new More complimenting to the wonderful ambience of this national heritage building. Fine dining in our in-house restaurant ensures a wonderful culinary experience, breakfast and dinner is served; limited room service available to the convenience of our guests. Each double story flatlet (90m2), each with its own private entrance, decorated with its own unique finish; antique doors leading out onto a deck with views of the Marloth Nature Reserve mountains and a staircase entering our landscaped courtyard garden. Satellite TV in every bedroom with en suite bathrooms with windows looking out onto our courtyard garden. The guesthouse is walking distance from the main attractions in town, making it ideal for the exploring traveler wanting to experience fine country living. Less
