Firstly,the reception on arrival was welcoming and warm, with fresh hot drinks and sticky cakes whist checking in, sublime. The honey moon suit was superb with a four poster bed , large spacious bathroom with every need catered for. The location was ideal and central to the town. An easy stroll up and down the main street revealed some delightful...

We were delighted with the accommodation which was in one of the purpose built bungalows away from the main house. This was not a problem and was very peaceful and quiet. They are a newish build and again we would ask the designers as to why they don't provide any shelving in the bathroom. Well provided for and convenient for...

we sadly only had one night here which was a bit of a waste as we did not get to really make to most of this beautiful accommodation. We had 2 adjoining rooms for my husband and I and our 2 teenage children. We were met on arrival with welcome drinks and a complimentary afternoon tea, and the concierge was...

We had a fabulous stay. The food was fantastic- particularly breakfast. The staff couldn't have been more lovely and accommodating of our young children. Frances, the woman they arranged to babysit our children, was like a Mary Poppins-character, making us wish we could always ask her to do so.

My husband and I stayed at Schoone Oordt for 3 glorious nights a few months back with our two year old little boy. It was truly one of the most relaxing and luxurious mini-breaks we've ever had during our 4 years living in the Western Cape. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite which is located in a private and secluded...

It was our first time going to Swellendam and staying at Schoone Oordt Guest House. The management were very friendly and all the staff was friendly too. The chef made excellent food every evening and the breakfast each morning was just as good. The rooms are great and so is the pool area. I love the gardens and the guest...
