Spend a wonderful 3 nights at Swallow's Nest - the accomodation and breakfasts were excellent with wonderful views over the ocean at breakfast. We were made to feel at home immediately by our hosts and would not hesitate to recommend Swallow's Nest to fellow travellers.

Stayed there with our 2 year old, he loved the pool! Just down the road from the B&B in the opposite direction to town is a big shopping mall, great for us as it had Spurs (a family restaurant). Really enjoyed our 3 nights there.

The rooms were pleasant, clean and had everything we needed. The host(s) were most hospitable, even going out of their way to attend to our special needs. The overall service was excellent. The place is conveniently situated within walking distance of the lagoon and a shopping centre.

The rooms were very nicely appointed, comfortable and clean. The Host(s) made us feel extremely welcome and we felt that all our needs were met, or attended to. The abode is accessible to a lot of extra activities, and there is a wonderful lagoon within walking distance.

It was the best location we have ever stayed at on our way from Port Elizabeth south to Cape Town. It is such a lovely place. The rooms are so beautifully decorated and well equipped - it feels like a home away from home. You can see this on the homepage or take a look at the B&B Guide issued...

Arrived with our 2 children to stay in large family room with kitchenette. Introduced to dingy room with insufficient space for extra beds. Grim dark brown 70's style kitchen. Bathroom old and moulding - very good location but find somewhere else to stay. Would not recommend to anyone - we found other lovely place to stay for same price.
