This was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The accommodation was beautiful and pristine, the owners friendly and helpful, and the breakfast absolutely amazing. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend Rothman Manor to anybody wanting to visit Swellendam.

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...

We stayed here having explored the vine route and in between heading up to the garden route. Having driven for miles and miles with nothing around we wondered what we would find in Swellendam. Immediately after turning off the main road we arrived at a beautiful building of Rothman Manor. This place really has vow factor with pretty gardens, jacuzzi...

My luxurious loft suite,complete with beautifully appointed kitchen, bedroom balcony overlooking the gardens, jacuzzi in the bath and spacious lounge, had an inspired, funky cool, retro decor that worked perfectly with the historical surroundings - awesome! Wandering through the extensive estate gardens, I found a number of secluded seating areas and picked one to enjoy the beautiful mountain views and...

Like a secret garden, the setting of this place was magical. You could relax here for a few days. Lots of interesting things, cats, zebras, ponds, garden features etc. Unique and a lovely place to stay. The hosts were also really really nice and helpful and we would stay here again. Swellendam itself did not seem to have much to...

What an absolutely amazing find. From start to finish we spent a wonderful couple of nights at Rothman Manor.

Another excellent B & B on the Garden Route. The room I had was a little small and I paid $130, the most I'd paid but it's a beautiful place in a beautiful setting. It's hard to describe the property - ponds, fountain, creek, etc. Franziska and Andreas were perfect hosts, recommending an excellent restaurant across the street and looking...
