What a special find! A privilege to be able to spend the night in a historic building such as this! Beautifully cared for by its hands on owner, Lizette and her assistant, Estelle. We were made to feel like old friends and I certainly hope we will become old friends as we look forward to our next visit in the... More

Lizette went out of her way to accommodate us and our needs. A truly beautiful guest house with wonderful service. Location is slightly out of the main town but no prob as long as you have a car. Made our stay in Swellendam perfect.

Not at all our style and the information online was not up to date, so it did not suit our needs. When we tried to discuss this wtih the owner we also had some poor attitude from her. Would probably suit elderly possibly foreign couples with a desire to go back to previous centuries...

The room we had could certainly be improved. Shower you hardly could call it a shower with a head small as a coin and giving water only drop by drop. Noise from the street nearby was disturbing. A wonderful surprise was the breakfast which made good for the poor room.

Really enjoyed our two night break. The particular reason we liked it so much was because Estella, the lady who looks after the place when Lynette the owner is away, made us so welcome and looked after us so well. She is a gem! The guest house itself is one of the oldest in Swellendam. It is set in a... More

I booked my one night stay based on price, not luxury or anything fancy, so I expected basic accommodation. My self-contained unit was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and spacious. But the main attraction is the main building with its charming old décor and then there was the charming woman who greeted me. She made me so welcome that I wished that... More

We were visiting from the UK and came across the amazing Moolmanshof B and B by chance. It is a beautiful Cape Dutch House and is the oldest building in Swellendam. The house is set in beautiful gardens. The decor and furniture throughout was wonderful and we stayed in the honeymoon suite - a large and tastefully decorated bedroom with... More
