This is an excellent property in a great location. The room offered an great bed and bathroom. The pool was an added bonus on a hot summer day. The tasty breakfast was served on the verandah with a view of the formal garden. Charming host offered great hospitality - highly recommended.

We spent a night at Cypress Cottage. It is a wonderful place with lovely hospitality. Everything was perfect. Our room was very comfortable. The owners (Etienne and Vera) was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was brilliant. A very nice place overall.

We liked our room and the pool. The owners are very friendly. We had to make a stop between Knysna and Cape Town, this was in the middle. We really recommend this place, breakfast is really nice. Excellent staff.

Etienne is a very caring host, he gave us plenty of useful tips regarding the area. Rooms are nicely decorated (though ours was a little bit dark), everything was absolutely clean, brandnew bathroom in Familyroom. Good B+B-type breakfast, nicely prepared and served at your table. Sometimes it took a little bit long until things arrived at our table. Lovely little...

Cypres cottage was a great stop in Swellendam. The city is interesting, good restaurant and the inn is great. Nice old home and the hosts, especially the pool guy, are very nice and informative. They gave us great insights not only around the city but for the planning of the rest of our trip. Great thanks.

We stayed for two nights in the Cypress Cottage. It's a very old house with its charm (and it's downsides being a little dark room). The garden is very nice, pool at the right temperature and good sitting area. Room is large and breakfast very good! The owner is a very nice and helpful man, giving us tips on what...

Cypress Cottage is a lovely old building set back from the main road. The host was very helpful and recommended restaurants and a good route for us to take on departure.

This is a cosy house, very good located near the Drostdy, and some fine restaurants. The room was excellent, quite big. Stange enough no television, but we did not miss it. Excellent wifi. Excellent breakfast. The people of the B&B were very nice, too.
