“A good place to stay”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

Amanda and Dave were involved in a busy local fundraising event when we stayed so it is to their credit that they made us so welcome. We felt almost as if we were part of the family. We stayed in the cottage as redecoration was in progress in the main house. It was spacious for two of us and adequate for our needs. The breakfasts were huge with a good variety of pastries and excellent locally sourced jams and preserves. The cooked breakfast was plentiful and varied.

My partner and I traveled throughout South Africa earlier this month, and spent 1 night in Swellendam with Dave and Amanda at the Impangele; we stayed in the Zebra room, which was the most fun room we've stayed in. Quite honestly, this was just intended to be a needed stop over to break up an otherwise lengthy road trip. What a delight to find such interesting and accomodating hosts, charming accomodation, and one of the best meals we had in South Africa (I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but ask Amanda as that it was she who recommended it....the place is back down the road, about three streets down to the right, on the left hand side of the road..GREAT fireplace.).

Our room was big, the breakfast was fantastic, and the conversations with Dave and Amanda were great!

We were having trouble with mobile phone reception, making it difficult to talk with our kids back in the US. Dave stepped in, set us up on his Skype account, and we were talking with the kids within minutes. Above and beyond, and greatly appreciated!

Stay here - trust us!

Room Tip: The Zebra room bathroom has an open shower - a wet room, as it were. It's not a set-up all will...

We were a travelling party of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids - 13 and 15) and booked the cottage for an overnight stay to break the journey from Cape Town to Knysna. Quality of the cottage was excellent - clean with all the basic amenities. Dave and Amanda are wonderful hosts and will go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

We took a road trip from Cape Town to Plettenberg Bay. This was one of the only affordable family-friendly places available. We stayed in the detached family cottage. It was quaint and clean. The children loved it. The breakfast was wonderful with a great variety of foods. Even the picky kids enjoyed breakfast. We only stayed one night, but we were happy and satisfied with the choice. It is not 5 star, but if you are looking for a cozy, affordable, family-friendly place to stay, this is a great choice!

We stayed for two nights in April en route to Plettenberg Bay in the family cottage. The cottage was rustic with character and perfect size for our group of three adults plus toddler and 13 month old baby. Kitchen is well equipped and the cottage backs on to a lovely garden where you can see lots of the local birds visit in the mornings.

The breakfasts are as good as any we've had at five star hotels across the world - not to be missed.

The owners were exceptionally helpful from booking through to our departure, even advising on how we can reclaim on tax paid on our accomodation! They also organised a traditional Xhosa feast for us as well as visits to the local township and also the nearby orphanage.

This is not a five star hotel and therefore the cottage may not be suitable for someone looking for luxury, but it is clean, comfortable, and gives a real feel of being in Swellendam, which we are very glad we visited. If you have kids be sure to visit the restaurant a few km further east along the N2 which has a HUGE outdoor play area for the little ones.
