We really loved our stay at the Schoone Oordt Country House in April 2011. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They made us feel at home immediately and went out of their way to help us in any way possible. They even provided us with an umbrella at the door for the morning breakfast.
The food and the room were both excellent.
We highly recommend this B&B. It is definitley a 5 star B&B.

This guesthouse gets always top-ratings and from our point of view it is deserved. The place has a very personal touch, e.g. with well-come snacks and wine. And you get plenty of firewood to create a cosy atmosphere in your well-appointed room. Food is also delicious. What else can you ask for? In overall, your holiday money is well-spent!

We had such a beautiful time at Schoone Oordt and enjoyed every minute. The attention to detail which the owners paid to the rooms was clearly evident in the fact that every function that a room could provide was done perfectly and with a touch of luxury. The combination of the beautiful antique furniture, the warming fireplace and the heated waterbottle which awaited us after dinner added a sense of pampering. We loved it and will definitely return!

This was our second trip to the beautiful Schoone Oordt property in the farming town of Swellendam and our first in Winter. Our visit coincided with the Canola oil festival and the town was prepared to perfection and the festival was great fun. It is always difficult to recreate an excellent experience and my expectation was that we would enjoy staying here again but not that we would be wowed again. I was wrong. Richard and Alison, the owners, have recently hired a wonderful couple to manage the guest house in collaboration with themselves and this added dimension was fantastic for several reasons. One is that Wander is a future master chef in the making as well as the nicest possible guy and the other is his wife Sonette who is the perfect balance of understated charm and attentive service. Nothing was too much trouble from taking care of all our laundry to accommodating special breakfast requests. We were treated to a spectacular tasting dinner one evening and the best gift of all was a dinner with the proprietors and Wander and Sonette on our final night. Such warm and generous hospitality is a testament to what has been created at this establishment. I can wax lyrically about the beautiful linens, the finely appointed rooms, the insanely large and luxurious bathrooms, the morning complimentary car wash, the best breakfast in the country and the impeccable cleanliness of the place but that would miss the essence of what has been created here. This is a living, breathing, labor of love and I cannot wait to see Richards next updates and improvements, some of which he gave me advance insight into on a quick tour, nor can I wait to see Wander flourish in his new kitchen! Thank you so much to the whole team at Schoone Oordt from myself, my wife and our daughter. Bravo
