Aan de Oever Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 38 Swellendam B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 January 2014

We had only booked in to this lovely guest house for one night but it was a very comfortable stay. The room was private and quiet giving a very good night's sleep. Breakfast was taken on the terrace with amazing views and the breakfast was extensive with something for everyone. Restaurants were within walking distance and Swellendam itself was worth a visit.

Interesting building, comfortable room, attractive setting, welcoming staff, good breakfast--perfect! Would definitely stay here again, it's the B+B I shall remember from our South Africa holiday and set in a town with many historic buildings

Only stopped in swellendam as a stopover and could not believe how fabulous this b+b was. Wish we had more time . Room was great, we had been upgraded. Lovely touches with roses from the garden, sherry and robes. Beautiful garden leading to the river, just the best b+b on our trip. Fabulous restaurant field and fork just 3 mins walk away.

This is a very nice B&B: Old dutch style house with a beautifukl garden located right by the river. You can walk through Swellendam from here. The personnel is very welcoming and willing to help in all requests. The breakfast is good and the rooms are clean and well equipped. Minor points: Some of the rooms are a bit dark - However, since you'll probably be out during the day, this doesn't really matter. Also, the pool is very small.

We were "walk in" clients that were lovingly greeted and made feel at home immediately. I can honestly recommend this BB as superior the whole ambiance is stunning. From the very comfortable rooms, beautiful gardens and delicious breakfast on the patio this venue is a must for anyone traveling through Swellendam. To our surprise we could continue our journey in a beautiful clean car as a special treat from the staff and were even given freshly baked muffins for the road. Keep the good work up , you are the best.

Room Tip: Kingfisher has a wonderful view of the beautiful garden and are private.

On our 4500 km roadtrip around South Africa, this was a delightful and memorable stay. We were welcomed by friendly staff, showed to our suite, where everthing was explained to us, after which they offered to make dinner reservations for. Fragrant roses adorned our room and Lindt chocolates invited us to the huge bed dressed in luxurious linen. After a wonderful night's rest, we were treated to a lovely breakfast outside on the patio, guarded over by the mountain and lovely shade trees. Swellendam, we will be back... As we turned the corner to our mudd splattered Landie, we found a sparkling clean vehicle! What a surprise. Thank you.

Rooms are very big and totally quiet. We also loved the attention to details in the room (incl rose and chocolates as welcome presents). And the breakfast is a real meal.

The pool was very pleasant for our little one and the wifi convenient for the big ones.

Thanks!
