Very friendly host Etienne, who knowns a lot about Swellendam and other things. Very nice conversations. A relaxed, quite and comfortable place to stay. Etienne gave us tips what to do and where to eat.

Great stay, wish we could have lingered longer. Great setting, lovely gardens, charming and spacious room, excellent breakfast. The highlight is Etienne, who provides a great commentary on this historical home, Town, history, and attractions. Nothing is too much trouble. Made excellent suggestion for dinner...More

The host are very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful breakfast on the terrasse. We enjoyed swimming in the nice pool after a long trip in the car. The rooms have comfortable beds and nice bathrooms.

We only stayed one night in the Family room, but I can fully recommend this guesthouse. Big room, nice pool and good breakfast with a very nice view. Child friendly and nice host! Next time we would book it again.
