Rothman Manor is truly a magnificent guest house plus so much more. Our usual guest house (Mardhouw House) had closed to become a private residence and we were so disappointed not to stay there for a fourth time that it was with some trepidation that we arrived at Rothman Manor. Well, we were blown away! Andreas was a delightful host...

People asked "Why Swellendam?" When we said we'd been once for lunch and thought it beautiful we knew we'd found friends. If that's Swellendam, Rothman Manor is its essence. We were met by the charming Franziska and shown into the most comfortable suite imaginable, with all that anyone could require - that was until we went into the garden and...

We stayed for two nights, in two adjoining rooms. We were upgraded to suites, which was wonderful - they were huge, with great beds, a comfortable sitting area, a fridge, a TV, a separate luggage/dressing room, and enormous bathrooms. There were small outside terraces with table and chairs but it was too chilly to sit there. The rooms overlooked the...

I had the good fortune to spend two nights at Rothman Manor with my family. It really is a magnificent place to stay, the owners are indeed brilliant hosts and the breakfast superb. It is without doubt one of the very best places I have stayed in during many years of world travel

We, two adults and one baby, only spent one night at Rothman Manor - unfortunately! It is a beautiful place to stay. You can even watch wild animals while lying in a jacuzzi outside ... Be sure to be hungry in the morning, because the breakfast is very good! We were out of luck with the weather, but nevertheless could...

Swellendam is a fairly quiet small town with not too much going on. It does have a few decent restaurants and is a useful stop over for the Garden Route or a base to visit other nearby locations such as Cape Agulhas or Bontebok National Park. Rothman Manor itself is quite simply superb and impossible to fault. The premises are...

Beautiful B&B with very hospitable hosts. We arrived mid afternoon and left by about 10am the next day so our only regret was that we were not able to enjoy the lovely pool (overcast afternoon) and gardens as much was we would have liked - a 2 night stay would have been ideal. Our room was beautifully styled as was...

If I could score this lovely, immaculate, friendly b&b out of 100 it would definitely score 100! It is our recent stay at Rothman Manor that has spurred me on to join Tripadvisor and write a review. The house and gardens are stunning, the welcome is warm and persona, and the hot tub overlooking the b&b's own zebra is just...
