I spent my last night in South Africa here, on the way back to Cape Town on the Garden Route. What a wonderful and pleasant home! Isabel looked after me in a way that made me feel like family, and she gave me great recommendations for where to run in the morning and what to see the next day (Cape Agulhas - you should go if you are in the area as it is the southernmost point in South Africa and quite beautiful). The room was well-appointed, spotless and had really charming decor that fit the theme of the room. The guest house grounds are great as well - two adorable dogs, plenty of places to sit and read or enjoy the sunset, and a nice little dining area. It feels open with lots of light. I was encouraged to make myself at home and felt completely comfortable doing so. Even though I only got to know Isabel briefly she is such a warm and genuinely caring person. She is also an amazing cook - breakfast was so delicious. I recommend this place to everyone!

We stayed here for 1 night and really enjoyed visiting with the owner, Isabel. It's a cheery, clean and comfortable home located in a quaint village. I really enjoyed playing with the dogs too. Isabel recommended a really nice restaurant and suggested scenic routes to get back to Capetown. Her prices are very inexpensive too.

Andre And I were on our way to Cape Town to do the Argus Cycle Tour.
Decided to break the long trip from East London in Swellendam.
We chose to ''pitch our tent'' for the night at this small guesthouse.
And! What a wonderful stay it turned out to be!
Isabel was a delightful host. We had a good night's rest, a very good breakfast, and then we carried onto Cape Town.
So our verdict is that this is the place to stay in Swellendam.
