A wonderful welcome from Fidney who made us feel special from the minute we arrived. Got taken in for complimentary afternoon tea with scones and cake. We had the honeymoon suite which was huge and nicely appointed in an old fashioned way

The hospitality, accommodation and food were first class. We were greeted by afternoon tea (which was yummy) and after a walk round Swellendam, couldn't wait to get back and cool off in the pool. Everything was perfect - we even had the car cleaned! We wish we'd stayed 2 nights - next time!

the history of this happy family house - especially its conversion into a beautiful boutique hotel - seemed to influence the warmth of welcome and everything that followed. Lovely room with balcony, pool, garden, the conservatory restaurant - breakfast and excellent dinners (the beef - wow!) and wine. But as is often the case, it was the people that made...

We had excellent rooms on the ground floor with a small terras and our friends stayed in the next room. Amenities were perfect especially all the bathing products . We enjoyed our one night stay and our diner in the hotel was also of a high level.

We had a marvellous stay at this boutique hotel in Swellendam! From the moment we arrived and our bags were taken directly to our room while we checked in electronically aided by a welcome drink and scones this was first class service all the way. We were in a beautiful room with antique pieces and a very large and well...

From the welcome to the check-out this was a memorable stay. On arrival the car was parked for us and after a welcoming iced tea and suitably calorific cake, our bags were waiting in the luxurious and well equipped room. We enjoyed an excellent dinner (lamb is recommended) and good local wine in the Conservatory restaurant, to which we returned...

Stayed one night as a stopover on the way to the garden route and wished we'd stayed longer. The service here is amazing- so warm and welcoming. Welcome drink and scones while you fill out some paperwork and get recommendations on things to do in town. We ate at the restaurant for dinner which was very good- it's in the...

We had the honeymoon suite for one night, a separate building near the swimming pool which was delightful and roomy with all lovely amenities. The welcome we reeived and staff were very helpful and friendly. The evening meal (filet steak) was superb - very highly recommended as was the breakfast. A lovely quiet location set within very pretty grounds. Highly...

This truly one of the finest Country Houses that I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Upon arrival one receives a pleasant and unexpected greeting , in the carpark , from courteous staff. Your luggage is then taken to your room and a full and detailed explanation of the room and services is explained. Check in is completed...

We recently stayed at Schoone Oordt for two nights. Right from our arrival to the moment of departure this Country House Hotel didn't miss a beat. The setting is lovely the position is quiet although in a Town location. (The Town is generally quiet, but not in a switched off way, more a subtly civilised way) The Accomodation here is...
