Affordable, cute place to stay. Nothing fancy but very friendly staff and beautiful scenery. Had a great time. There are nearby trails and hiking and close to town to pick up groceries, etc. About an hour and a half drive to Cape Agulhas - the geographic southern tip of Africa and the official dividing point between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
- 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
