“perfect for overnight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

very nice guesthouse, centrally located next to the Drosty Museum and a few restaurants to go to by foot. Small rooms with nearly no place to put a suitcase on, but nicely decorated, clean, friendly people. Pool. perfect for one night on the way from/to cape town, we would not recommend it for more days. Restaurant was closed unfortunately.

We stayed 2 nights in February 2014. A fantastic mix of homeliness and style many strive for, but few achieve. We were a party of 4 and stayed in the two Garden Cottages. The owners and all the staff are so happy. Be sure to enjoy your dinner here as well, we had our best Fillet Steaks of the whole months trip here. This is truly a place to re charge, so sit back, relax and enjoy.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the garden cottages.

Situated in a historic quarter of Swellendam small houses are put in a flowering garden. There is not much space to put your belongings in bedroom and bath, but for a short stop its nice. The 'Herberge' offers also good meals for dinner.

Stayed here twice on our way East and on the way back to Cape Town. As a one night stopover it is more than adequate but not a place where I would want to spend a week. Swellendam doesn't appear to have a great deal to offer tourists!! However we were warmly received, offered coffee and the choice of breakfast was good. Of the three places we stayed this was the most expensive, but even so it was very reasonable.

The beds, food, decor, etc are all fine, but the welcome is ZERO. From the moment we arrived we felt that we were unwelcome. If you don't like people and are unwilling to cater to their needs, you shouldn't be in the hospitality industry...
