We arranged a last minute stay at this fantastic guesthouse in the quaint town of Swellendam. We were greeted by the very friendly owner Mari-Louise who showed us our luxurious two-story lodging and welcomed us with some fine South African wine. We highly recommend this family owned questhouse if you truly want to experience some top-notch South African hospitality.
