We were exceptionally lucky - as mid-week visitors - to get an upgrade to a magnificent room... The guest house is filled with magnificent artworks and antiques. Ambience top rate. Food was absolutely fantastic as was kind service we were given... Chef cooked us a special meal on last night. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Try and get out room - think it was Room G???? It's got the wow factor!!!

Location, facilities and hospitality first class. We did not want to leave. Next time it will be for longer to enjoy the relaxation and peacefulness of the lovely garden and setting. Easy location for access to restaurants.

Spent one overnight in this lovely guesthouse, where the rooms were beautiful and the bed so comfortable we wanted to take it home with us. Stunning views of the mountains, great breakfast with a tremendous selection of breads and a charming hostess. If and when we come back to South Africa, Braeside will, without a doubt, be on our list, but for more than one night

Hi,

Thank you so much for this great review of Braeside. I have been trying to find out who wrote this but to no avail. This however does not take anything away from the fact that I am extremely grateful for your kind words.
Warm regards,
Marianna

From the moment we arrived Marianna could not have been more helpful. We were welcomed like old friends and treated like family during our three night stay. All the rooms and in fact the whole house is like a beautiful heritage home. Our room with its garden and mountain view was excellent and we were able to enjoy the tranquillity on the huge veranda. The food and service could not be faulted (Cain even cleaned our car). Breakfast buffet with home made breads, lots of choices and items cooked to order was lovely and what a delight - Marianna bakes delicious cakes everyday for guests to have with afternoon tea. On arrival she recommended a great restaurant for dinner and had thoughtfully booked an option on a table for which we were most grateful as it was very busy in Swellendam that week. She also organised for a meal to be delivered to the house one evening and we ate outside. Marianna is so accommodating she even set up a table and gave us plates and cutlery with instructions not to wash it all up as she would take care of it. We will always have happy memories of Braeside.

Hi C and G,

I really missed your presence at Braeside the moment you left here. You were so kind and friendly and always right there on the veranda. May you have a wonderful and blessed life together and maybe one day Braeside (and me) will again be blessed by your visit.
Take care until we meet again.

Warmest regards,
Marianna

A absolutely grand place. One could not ask for better consideration with accommodation. Close to nice eating establishments. A most enjoyable place to just relax, which is exactly what we did. And definitely the finest kind of person as hostess.
