I stayed here for one night with my wife and 1 year old son in mid-July and we had a wonderful stay. This was the only night I did not book in advance on the garden route before coming to South Africa and booked it after getting a recommendation from the place we were staying the next night (in Outdshoorn). Dave and Amanda were super nice and fun to chat with in the morning over breakfast (which I will elaborate on shortly). We stayed in the leopard room (which was almost as big as our apartment at home :-D) and really liked the amount of detail in the room. You could tell that every time they happened across something that had to do with leopards they added it to the room (a suitcase, dresser, mask, rug, doll, books, diaries...).
As for the breakfast, it was without a doubt the best one we ate during our entire stay in South Africa! I do not eat meat, and Amanda made sure there were plenty of other things for me to eat and that the cheeses and meats were in different platters in the morning. I like a big breakfast and there was a huge variety in the breakfast here (yogurt, cereal, pastries, bread, jams, butter, eggs.....). The setting for breakfast was also beautiful. We sat outside in the garden and had birds chirping all around us with the mountains as our background.
Last but not least, Dave and Amanda were also very helpful in helping us plan our day and drive after we left Swellendam. If I ever do the garden route again, I will make a point of staying here again!
