My husband and I have just enjoyed a four night stay at "The Hideaway" - our hosts Stephen and Jackie couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble. Stephens enthusiasm - albeit a tad OTT at times - is second to none. He went out of his way to ensure we knew the best routes to take and the best places to visit on our outings, even providing maps! Also because Swellendam is so small they offered advice on local restaurants - which was appreciated although one does not have to heed their advice. The rooms are very comfortable and the garden is beautiful - a wonderful place to relax after a days outing with a pot of tea and Jackies lovely homemade shortbread. The breakfast are scrummy! with lots of homemade muffins, scones and bread, not forgetting the freshly made fruit salad and muesli - with a full cooked breakfast to follow wow! and lets not forget the "doggie bag" a nice touch to send you on your way. We also enjoyed being invited for a glass of wine and snacks in their home before going out to dinner - a chance to know them a little better - Thank you Stephen and Jackie.
