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....

We stayed in a Garden Room just right for our two night stay. Bettie warmly welcomed us to Swellendam Country Lodge. It is set in lovely gardens with fruit trees and a delightfully long pool which was very much appreciated. Breakfast were very tasty with plenty of choice and Betties homemade Marmalade and jam. Thank you for all your help...

Stayed for one night before heading to Franschoek and so sad we didn't have more time to spend here. The room, garden, breakfast were all perfect and Bettie is an excellent host (helpful but not at all intrusive). Can't wait to return for more than one night.

We spent one night here on our way to Cape Town and we loved it. Fantastic host and the breakfast was amazing. The fruit platter was delicious. Will recommend this place to anyone :) Our host Bettie was very welcoming and the room was very comfortable.

Only two nights here, but long enough to appreciate the elegance and comfort of the luxury rooms set in gorgeous tropical gardens. The only place we stayed with a pool bigger then just a plunge - and with a lovely seating area. Heinko and Bettie are really lovely people and their passion for hospitality really shows - the breakfast on...

We booked at the very last moment and, by our lovely host's admission, we had a very small room which was adequate for one night. What made this place great for us was the exceptional quality of the breakfast. It was outstanding. Everything home made by our hosts. Well done. We were unlucky to have a power failure in the...
