Reviewed 9 August 2014

We spent two nights at this lovely B&B address with a most talketive and hospitable Bettie who made us feel at home from the beginning.
Very specious bed- and bathroom with a modern walk-in shower !
Our special compliments fr the extensive breakfast wth nice and fresh products.
We' ll certainly recommend this lodge to others.

After a long drive from Cape Town we found this place. Very accommodating considering we arrived quite late and had not booked. Lovely cottage style rooms in a garden setting. Breakfast was amazing and staff extremely helpful.

My partner and I spent two nights here in March on our way to Cape Town. We loved everything about it. The lovely room, beautiful gardens and wonderful breakfast. It is very close to local restaurants and in a great location to visit De Hoop Nature Reserve which we did. Swellendam is an interesting town in an area of natural beauty. Bettie, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful with information. We recommend it highly and would love to go back there.

We stayed in at this accommodation for one night last month, with the intention of visiting the Bontebok National Park the day after. We were welcomed very friendly and heartily and we were shown the only room left for the night.

The room was very clean and modern, it has a big bathroom and separate shower and bath. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, although it was only for one night. The rooms also have WIFI, which is not the standard in B&B's. Having stayed next door 2 nights ago, we knew the restaurant of the neighboors so we ended up eating there as this accommodation doesn't have its own restaurant. This is the only downside.

Breakfast the next day was super. They use fresh items from their own garden and the area and the quality is noticeable. This was probably the most expensive B&B we stayed at during our trip in South-Africa, but it was also the best, cleanest, nicest and had those few extra things, that most of the others were lacking.

This place recommends itself.

The queit and comfortable rooms, the beatifull garden and above all the warm welcome by the owners
make this place an excellent lodge to stay. The city centre (with the nice open air museum) and good restaurants are nearby. It wa a good experience staying in the Swellendam lodge during our raod trip trough South Africa

At western end of the town, so very easy to find from Swellendam West exit from N2. A short drive from the main historic sites in Swellendam, but a couple of good restaurants almost next door.
Good well decorated and peaceful rooms and pleasant garden and pool - distant noise when around pool.
An excellent breakfast, and having car washed every morning a bonus - especially after a trip round Bontebok National Park
