“Excellent”
Reviewed 20 April 2009

My wife and I stayed two days at the De Kloof Luxury Estate and it was absolutely fabulous. Marjolein and Roy made us feel totally at home. The whole staff could not do enough for us from the breakfast and lunch service to cleaning our car on departure. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated as was the whole lounge and eating areas all situated in a beautiful tranquil setting. We would definitely recommend to everyone.

Reviewed 9 January 2009

We stayed here for 2 nights in jan 09 in a standard room in the main building. The service we received from the hosts and their staff was very good, including a guided tour on arrival of the estate and an unexpected car wash on the last day. The room was very good with a large double bed, excellent storage, a fabulous bathroom and sitting areas inside and out. The breakfast was freshly made and provided a wide range of cereal, meat, cheese, bread, cooked items. The host also gave us excellent advice about places to visit in the robertson wine valley and on route to our next destination - great local knowledge. Overall a really excellent high quality B+B for a quiet retreat with excellent access to Robertson wine valley. Beside wine and a small number of historical buildings, not much to occupy you in Swellendam for more than 2 nights, but definately worth going to for a short period for the excellent experience at De Kloof.

This is a little oasis of calm and you wouldn't know it was anywhere near a town as it's so quiet. Unfortunately because of the wet weather we didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked lovely. We had the honeymoon suite which was a little cottage away from the main house and overlooking the pitch and putt course. The hosts were very welcoming as were the 2 dogs! We ate in a local restaurant which the hosts had kindly booked for us before we arrived. Breakfast the next morning was lovely, served on the terrace and beautifully presented. Not much to do in Swellendam itself but this is a good base for the Robertson wine valley.

What a beautiful and luxury Estate. High quality renovated estate and rooms. Beautiful garden and swimming pool. Very friendly owners who can tell you about the present and the past of Swellendam and surroundings. They also provide you with excellent advice on the sightseeing possibilities in the Kaap. Highly recommended

We stayed there for 1 night on our way to Wilderness along the garden route.

The accommodation was lovely, we had our own front door & upstairs room with very clean bathroom & little balcony. Below us our Mother had her own front door, seating area & lovely bathroom.

There's a swimming pool, a small gym & a driving range where you can whack balls a fair distance (if you feel the need!)

The couple who owned it were lovely, we were treated to a wine tasting in the afternoon & the breakfast in the morning was incredible. Anything you wanted - and sparking wine to get you going too!!

Rooms were clean, tidy & very comfy.

They recommend places to eat in & you are safe enough walking from the guest house down to the restaurants at night.

Would love to visit there again - pretty little stop over town on the way along the Garden Route.

I cannot praise this hotel enough. The owners are incredibly hospitable, the decor is superb, the daily wine tasting and breakfast are faultless. Staff are friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • Liked — Decor
  • Disliked — Steps everywhere made it difficult as I have a mobility problem.

We stayed one night at De Kloof as a stop over and we thought it was excellent value for money. We had a very large bedroom and bathroom, complimentary tea and coffee, wine tasting and the most amazing breakfast, all in all very good value for money.
