Schooner Oordt is a lovely restored hotel whose owners spent a great deal of time and money to make this place a very charming and welcome place to stay. We stayed here for one night on our way back to Cape Town from Ado Elephant Park. We were lucky enough to be greeted by the owner, Alison. We had a great conversation with her during our dinner where we talked about restoring this house as well as the culture of South Africa. She also spent time with us at breakfast and wished us a fond farewell. The rooms were very nice, large, comfortable and equipped with organic bath amenities. We ate both dinner and breakfast at the hotel, and I was surprised and amazed at the quality of the food which was very upscale for a farming town - nice job to the chef, Obi. Also the staff (meaning Findley), was especially helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel if you're looking to stay in the Swellendam area.
