We've chosen a garden cabin for two people. Luckily just for one night. The cabin was a tiny shack with two single beds which are everything but comfy. As an experienced backpacker I'm not that fussy, but this one - yikes. And the main interest of the present staff members were obviously focussed on how to get drunk asap. I wouldn't usually mind, but travelling with my mother I was quite disappointed about the place - not to mention the ablution facilites' condition.
But for one overnight stay it's okay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cosy wooden cabins and luxury en suite rooms lie in a lush bird filled garden fringed by its own gurgling mountain stream and the Marloth Nature Reserve. Halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route it is ideally situated to hike or horse ride through indigenous forests or wander through the picturesque village. Beneath the most spectacular peaks of the Langeberg Mountains Swellendam is the 3rd oldest magisterial district in South Africa with plenty of inspiring and peaceful experiences. Sit around our welcome fire under starry skies and enjoy the countryside. ... more less
