Nice b&b in a lovely area of Swellendam. Rooms are more than adequate, but can be a bit noisy if neighbours want to si outside till late. Owners are very friendly and service orientated. Breakfast was great.

I touched down at Roosje´s my third time and again I found it is an ideal place on the way along the N 2 , absolutely calm in a nice neighbourhood, with a stunning view on the chain of mountains (good hiking on Mountain Tienurkop). Restaurant and rooms are decorated and furnished tastefully, beautiful garden with pool. It´s a real cosy place with a reasonable price, friendly staff. A pity: on sunday the kitchen was closed. But I remember, it used to be delicious.

This was the fourth time at Roosje over the last 5 years. Mostly with friends from Norway.
Very cosy, quiet and charming place to stay and always a delicious dinner. We like the rooms in the annex. The service are good and friendly

We enjoyed staying at Roosje van de Kaap very much. It's been a couple of years since we stayed here and regretted the fact we stayed in 2 other places over the years.
The friendliness and hospitality of Freek and Helpie did make our stay extra special.
Next time we'll stay in their b&b again as they outdo the other one's by far.
See you next year!
