We were greeted very friendly. The room was nicely furnished in the classical cape dutch style. they have a beautiful garden with a pool. In the afternoon the owner came to us and offered a port, very attentive. The house is in the middle of the town.There quite a few old houses, so a waök is a must.

A perfect stay in this quaint guesthouse, with wonderful views of Swellendam. We stayed in the Bokmakierie Room which was exceptional - the photos on the website don't do it justice! A huge attic-style room with a balcony overlooking the pool, stream and mountains. The host was lovely and helpful, booking us our evening meal at a local restaurant that...

It was the second time we stayed in Aan de Oever Guesthouse and it was once again excellent. We had an upgrade to a very big room and overall we experienced a lot of hospitality! If we come again in the naigbourhood of Swellendam we certainly will choose again for Aan de Oever Guesthouse.

We enjoyed our stay at Aan de Oever very much. The welcome was great, the service always very good and the breakfast couldn't be better. The guest house is very quietly located, with a stunning view on the mountains and the pool area is a perfect place to relax.

I loved the attentive service. Everyone has a good attitude and are accommodating. We stayed in the Barn Owl which is very comfortable and spacious. I will definitely be back next year to ride in the Swellendam 100.

We stayed in 6 different guest houses and hotels during our recent visit to South Africa, and the Aan De Oever was by far the best we stayed in. Absolutely faultless. We were made welcome from the moment we checked in. We arrived an hour early, but our room was ready and we were allowed straight in without any issues....
