We stayed in some beautiful places in South Africa but this place was outstanding. The rooms are beautiful and the grounds are amazing, especially the hot tub looking over the zebra and springbok. The whole place is friendly and stunning. Simply wonderful.

Rothman Manor was a wonderful place to stay. Far beyond our expectations. The room was well furnished, clean and very comfortable with our own lovely patio area to sit and lounge. We looked onto a beautiful pool full of lotus blossoms and to top it all at the bottom of the garden zebra and bontebok grazed. Breakfast was a delight...

stunning facilities and grounds... this property far exceeded our expectations and then some. Our only disappointment was that we were not staying for more than one night.. swellendam itself also appears to have a nice selection of quality restaurants, making it a handy place to stop off en route to the garden route.

The ultimate in luxury guest house accommodation. This is undoutably the best we have ever stayed in. Rooms are immaculate, decor amazing, breakfast excellent and the location stunning. This cannot be rated highly enough.

Quiet and pleasant extensive gardens. Nice patio for spoilt-for-choice breakfast. If you can, stay more than one night and just chill out. Security is tight. Highly recommended. Lovely private patio on to the pool area.
