De Wagenhuis Guest House
Ranked #27 of 39 Swellendam B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 March 2009

We stayed at de Wagenhuis and were made most welcome by Anneke and Andrew. They have converted an historic wagon house from the 1790s to a superb guest house with a lovely appartment consisting of 2 bedrooms, each with its own lounge and bathroom and a communal dining room and separate large kitchen, which we had for only 2 of us, and upstairs more guest bedrooms, which we did not see but are sure they would be of the same high standard.
There is a huge reception room with an honesty bar, sitting and eating areas, patio and superb views. This being a working farm it was interesting to see the beasts walking across the fields for milking, but the only noise came from the chickens at the end of the garden, and that was very muted.
We had a day's R&R after Cape Town and it was lovely to lie by the pool, with a gazebo for shade if needed, with the lovely flower beds of the main farm house to look at.
DInner had been booked for our second evening, but Anneke was only too delighted to rustle up a light meal (for South Africans that is, more than adequate for Brits) of Springbok carpaccio and salad for me, chicken and chips for my husband, at a moment's notice. The pre-booked meal the next night was 3 courses, roast lamb the main course, and so reasonable in price. Anneke and Andrew kept us company both nights to ensure that all was well with us, a most appreciative gesture.
We felt that they were offering hospitality for it's own sake and not as a business - it seemed like we were staying there as friends, and that was after only two nights. I'm sure we could have found a more slick establishment, but never a friendlier place. We were recommended by friends who said it was a must - how right they were.
