We prefer not to drive in the evening, so being within walking distance of restaurants is one of the aspects we always check. This property is well situated on a quiet road leading off the main street.
We arrived early but were welcomed in immediately by Amanda and given the choice of either the Leopard or Zebra room. I chose the zebra as it was so quirky. The attention to detail was brilliant with everything in zebra print. We were amused by some of the items, especially the zebra hat complete with tail to match the bath robe!
Dave and Amanda were great hosts, suggesting good restaurants and we spent the afternoon visiting the nearby berry farm and sampling the jams and liqueurs. Later we enjoyed a drink on the terrace and a chat with the other guests before dinner at one of the local restaurants.
We had an excellent breakfast on the terrace the following morning, plenty of choice to suit all tastes.
Swellendam is possibly overlooked by those trying to "do" the garden route, but well worth spending a few days to visit Bontebok NP or the amazing beaches and whale watching at De Hoop.
We have found the standard of B & B's in South Africa to be consistently very good and have re-visited several over the past few years - this is another one to go on our list.
