I would highly recommend this b&b. Just delightful! Bettie is a wonderful host and she makes you feel very welcome. We travelled with our 7-year-old and they provided him with a lovely extra bed. The gardens are very well maintained and so is the small but lovely pool they have. Towels are provided and the room has lots of amenities...

We had a wonderful two night stay here despite the rain. The room was well equipped and comfortable and the owners were full of useful information about the area. The breakfast was superb with a delicious selection of fruit. You even get your car washed in the morning! Swellendam is a long town and the Lodge is at one end....

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to Plettenberg. I can highly recommend this small guest house. The welcome was warm, the breakfast was great and this is ideally situated for the Robertson Wine Region along the nearby Route 62. We visited a few vineyards on the full day we were in the area. Betty is a great...

We stayed at Swellendam Country Lodge Guest House for 1 night in March on our way from Cape Town to Knysna. It makes for a perfect stop along the Garden Route. The guest house is located in the town but in a very quiet location. The rooms are lodge/bungalow style set in pretty, well cared for gardens. We had a...

We only stayed one night but were pleasantly surprised. Although small, the room was immaculate in every way. Everything was in perfect working condition and well maintained. The bathroom is quite large and has both bath and shower. Unfortunately our room did not have air conditioning so it could get quite hot in summer. There is however a large ceiling...

We enjoyed a couple of nights stay, the owner was very helpful going out of her way to offer advice on local things to do and restaurants & staff even cleaned your car. The rooms were a little small for people with a lot of luggage as there wasn’t a lot of wardrobe space but this wasn’t a problem for...

We had a three night stay here on the recommendation of other reviews. I have been hovering between 4 and 5 stars for mine because the rooms are small and there is very little storage space. The rail of the wardrobe was so high I couldn't reach it! The steps up to the main house are very high! However the...

The rooms in the Swellendam County Lodge are not very huge, but clean and cozy. They´re situated in a rich tropical garden with swimming pool. You can´t hear a sound from the neighours, but the trucks on the nearby street may cause some noise (but not too bad). The breakfast - starting with a huge fruit platter - is excellent....
