Wonderful location in a historic cottage. Cypress Cottage has a beautiful garden including pool and the rooms in the historic stables are cozy and equipped with everything you need and a lot of attention and love to detail. Our hosts especially Etienne, were very friendly and had a lot of tipps and recommendations for us. Breakfast was awesome, handmade and very good.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Cypress Cottage. The hosts were incredibly inviting and made us feel instantly welcomed. They were also knowledgeable on the history of the area and eager to share stories. The room was not only beautiful and clean, but cosy and warm on a cold day in Swellendam. We would 100% go back!

Hosts are very personable, premises are very well restored, venue is quiet and picturesque. Advice given about nearby (walking distance) restaurants and local history. Paintings at Cypress Cottage done by the owners are well worth appreciation

It is a beautiful historical well maintained property managed by lovely hosts. We were given a very warm welcome by the whole family (Including their Labrador Daniel). Et helped us in planning our journey further and gave some great recommendations for Cape Town. My 9 years old daughter didn’t want to leave their place as she feel in love as soon as we arrive. Amazing and very comfortable stay. We will definitely come back for a longer stay. Last but not the least, they serve home cooked fresh mouth watering healthy breakfast.

There were four of us staying in the Stables of Cypress Cottage, as we were participating in the cycle race Round The Pot. The Stable is the self catering option, with two bedrooms and a bathroom and suited out needs perfectly. The weater was raining and cold but the fire, which had plenty of wood , and the electric blankets on our beds, kept us perfectly warm and the well stocked kitchen was great. Cypress Cottage is almost in the middle of town so we could walk every where, and explore the surrounds..

Had a wonderful stay with my family. Our host was very welcoming and made us feel at home right from the start. Our rooms were warm and comfortable, despite the cold weather. The historic building allowed us to share in a part of the towns history.

Thank you for hosting us for our business trip. We were not really aware that we had to share things like fridges and microwaves in a communal space we were abit uncomfortable with that, but other than that it was lovely. thank you.
