Reviewed 6 May 2014

All the excellent reviews are true! Amazing service, excellent tasty food and relaxing rooms.
We awoke to see someone washing our car! Two course hot breakfast as well as cold offerings. Large bathrooms with heated floors. We tried the Rain bath products here and then went to the store in town and purchased our own to take home. We enjoyed our stay so much we went out of our way to stay here again on our trip. Both times where excellent.

We were welcomed with great enthusiasm by the staff. Shown where to park our car, ushered in to the hotel for a complimentary drink, following which we were guided to our room, which was everything we had hoped for. The hotel is ideally situated away from the village traffic however very centrally situated. The gardens are lovely, with fountains and beautifully manicured lawns and a crystal clear pool. It is evident that a happy team takes care and runs this fantastic property.
We had a memorable stay.

Schoone Oordt is a beautiful country house furnished with beautiful antiques blended with all the comforts of modern life. The service was spectacular, the staff were friendly and always there to predict what you may need before you know it yourself!

The room was clean and beautifully laid out and the bathroom with shower, big bath tub and double sink was my favourite feature. I loved going to bed after eating a scrumptious meal in the Conservatory to find my bed welcoming me with a hot water bottle tucked inside.

Sonette and Wander came to check in with us at breakfast and dinner to see how we were enjoying our stay. I found the whole experience to be lovely and can recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Swellendam.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "standard room" which was lovely.

We have just had the most amazing stay at Schoone Oordt, the welcome by Findily was amazing. The personal service was outstanding. The afternoon complimentary tea was a nice surprise. The rooms are comfortable, and have all the extra touches, specialized products from Rain. The breakfast was very very special, poached pear stuffed with nuts etc, and a eggs Benedict with salmon or bacon. Day two poached stuffed apple, and a poached egg on a mushroom and tomato stack. Everything was perfect. The rooms cleaned within minutes of you stepping out. Linen, magazines, chocolates on bed, bar fridge, complimentary water etc all make it so special. The staff were so friendly and efficient. And to top it all a complimentary car wash. Thank you so much for making our weekend so special. I can highly recommend this establishment.

This was our favorite of several of the really top notch South African B & B's we visited in April 2014. Large comfortable rooms, beautiful pool and lounge area and superb breakfast. Top management and staff. One of our group left a piece of luggage behind and the manager/owner jumped in her car and drove to our next stop to return it. Sorry we couldn't stay longer.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms, the hotel and grounds are all so beautifully maintained. The staff were really helpful and personable, taking the time to recommend restaurants and activities to make our stay perfect.

The food was also really excellent so a good spot for dinner even if you aren't staying. Would recommend.

A wonderful country hotel, that offers such personal service, and luxurious comfort, you feel like royalty. We had a truly fantastic stay, one night was not enough. The homebaked spread for tea and breakfast are just delicious and one of the many examples of what makes this place so special. Do yourself a huge favour and stay there next time you pass by Swellendam, you will be so grateful you did. We will definitely be back. And our children can't wait to see Shadow, the resident dog, who was quite happy to have them shower him in love. From start to finish, this hotel is an absolute treat.
