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...

We stayed at the lodge for two nights during a Lawson's Safari trip to the Western Cape. You never know what to expect when you approach a property for the night, unless it's a chain hotel. This is most certainly not a chain, in fact it looks as though they've just built it. Upon asking its history, we found that...

While returning from Oudtshoorn we stayed two days in Swellendam. We were warmly welcomed and direct support was given for restaurant reservation, the daily program and all necessities we might have. Breakfast was great, lots of fruits and warm breakfast options as well. Location is located on the far side of the Main Street, but restaurant options are close for...

Good location on edge of town. Room was comfortable with everything we needed. Heater in room was switched on prior to our arrival so was very cosy. Breakfast was super and the hosts were very friendly. Theres a convenient restaurant directly across the road too
