I stayed at Impagele with my wife for two nights in the Zebra room. The room was really nicely decorated with every detail having fun Zebra and African accents. The bed was very comfortable, the room and guest house were very clean. The bathroom had very nice towels and designer brand soaps. For breakfast, there is a good selection of fresh fruits, cereals coffee and tea, and since the hosts Dave and Amanda are English you can also expect a full compliment of warm breakfast items.
The location is very nice. It is located just off the main street in Swellendam, and easy walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The house has a beautiful garden and excellent views of the 'Langeberg' mountain. The garden has a 'braai' (grill) that can be used by guests. We actually stayed in one evening and grilled. Dave made it very easy for us to have a barbecue because he had wood, utensils and starting blocks to help give us the real South African experience.
The hosts are really very genuine and friendly people. They are very knowledgable about the area and were really able to help us with the planning of our activities, as we had some ideas, but nothing really planned. They gave us some great restaurant tips - we went to Sabine's, which I also will recommend. Throughout the whole stay they were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. For the price, location and quality I would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone going to Swellendam - we really had a wonderful.
