“Warm and Inviting , with SPECTACULAR breakfast and views to match !”
Reviewed 20 April 2011

We spent 2 nights at Impangele guest house and were greeted by the beaming smile of Beauty the housemaid after which it only got better . Amanda and Davids hospitality was second to none , the house was sparkleing , the views from the back porch / breakfast area with the Langeberg Mountains as a backdrop was Spectacular . Had we not booked other accommodation for the remainder of our stay in the region we would have been tempted to stay . We had the best breakfasts of the whole trip at Impangele which set us up for the rest of the day exploreing the region and there is plenty to see and do ! Thanks to you all for making our stay so enjoyable . Cheers

You would love to have seen the smile that spread over Beauty's face when I showed her your review! It is reviews like this that make the effort all worthwhile, we really appreciate it, thank you.

My husdand and I stayed in Dave and Amanda's Leopard room for one night on our 2 week road trip in South Africa in November 2010 and had a great stay.
We were made to feel so welcome and spent the early evening chatting with our hosts with a bottle (or 2!) of wine which we thoroughly enjoyed. Other guests were around and no pressure was put on them to join us but it was obvious that everyone was welcome if they wanted.
We went to a really nice restaurant on Dave and Amanda's recommendation which doesn't have a menu but serves fresh local food differing each night. A lot of its diners were staying at Impangele and everyone seemed to really enjoy it!
Dave's breakfast lived up to expectations having read some great reviews on TA!

We stayed in Swellendam on our return drive across the Karoo and it was a lovely surprise,we got a lovely welcome from Dave and Amanda and after settling into our comfortable room we sat down and shared a bottle of wine with Amanda,both Amanda and Dave are from the UK and we had a great chat with Amanda,she can certainly talk.. but it was great fun,breakfast was delicious and our hosts were very informative about local activities and things to do,Swellendam has a lot going for it and it is a shame that so many people bypass it,we loved our stay and will be back.

We both loved Impangele and were made to feel really welcome by Amanda and David. The Zebra room was great fun - with bathrobes, slippers and many other details all in the same theme.
The situation is peaceful and relaxing with wonderful views from the back terrace . Lots of amazing birds come to drink there too.
Breakfasts - delicious and weather permitting, can be served out on the terrace.
Definitely gets a 5 star rating from us.

i had booked via the internet based on pictures of both the leopard and zebra room which i thought would give us a taste of africa ; in reality the room decorations were far better than i had expected and the owners have gone to immense detail , even down to highly specialised cups and saucers. both bedrooms were large ,comfortable and well maintained and little touches such as special soaps were very much appreciated.
amanda and david couldnt have been more friendly and indeed helpful-and on top of this came their magnificent breakfast ;they both deserve to succeed and next year we shall be coming back.

We stayed in different BB in South Africa and the best Breakfast we found it by Impangele.
The owners were very freindly and you receive a lot of information about the area or your trip.
The breakfast was amaizing. You have a lot of choice of marmelade, croissant, good juice, eggs bacon, and more.
The rooms have an extravagant African design, well done!

Swellendam is an excellent place to visit.Staying with Dave & Amanda at Impangele makes it that much better. Near to the town centre.yet superbly situated in a quiet area close to the mountains, this is an ideal location with outstanding views from the garden.
We were given a wonderful welcome from Dave & Amanda, and throughout our stay, they gave us plenty of ideas of where to visit,booked us restaurants, and arranged a first class tour guide who also had immense local knowledge- in fact anything and everything you might need.
Nothing was ever too much trouble to them - and the breakfasts were everything you could ask for - and more! Also for anyone interested in Bird Watching there were some great birds to be seen from the garden which had lots of feeders.
We feel we must explain our score regarding the rooms, we would certainly score The Leopard and Zebra rooms as 5, but we would say that The Girraffe room which was ours was not upto that standard- which was reflected in the price- but was still very comfortable. Our overall rating still stands as everything else was excellent we had a wonderful time.
