    Best hotel of our holidays! Very friendly hosts, comfortable, luxurious room, large, clean bathroom, beautiful garden, great swimming pool. The food is haute cuisine, diner as well as breakfast, mmmm! Every detail matters: cheese platter at 4am, free carwash while we had breakfast,... We would definitely stay here again!

    excellent break point on our way from Cape Town to Knysna. We have now booked for our return journey before flying home to UK. We were well looked after.

    Large steps - no hand rails.

    Very nice creole like home in Swellendam, renovated with lot of style. We took the cottage for 4 persons. Nice linnen, very confortable matras. Swimming pool with well maintained garden. We had dinner at the restaurant that was very good with homemade bread.

    Small thing : Some more homemade bread in the morning instead of warm breakfast.

    This is a beautifully presented hotel in attractive grounds. The room was very comfortable with the little extras you would expect in a quality establishment. The breakfast was a unique treat. The staff were all excellent, even washing our car which was very dusty after a trip to De Hoop.

    Fantastic old colonial stye house with garden rooms. Lovely welcome buy the owner and a cheese and wine platter on arrival, never had this before even in so called 7 star Dubai hotels. I would recomend this hotel for a relaxing getaway, we will be back soon and stay for longer.

    What a gem. Shame we were only there for 1night as it was the nicest place we stayed at in the 2 weeks we were in the Cape. The rooms were amazing. What a breakfast and car washed too!

    Everything is just right it is true in this life you get what you pay for it may be a little bit more expensive but it is a 5 star establishment

    We had a wonderfully relaxing stay here. Everything from the room, to the gardens, to the welcoming staff made it a memorable visit. The food was sensational; I felt like the happiest judge on Masterchef with every mouthful I tasted! Thank you, Thank you - looking forward to the next visit!

    Position as en route on the garden route After staying there I found that the whole experience quite enjoyable as we had never stayed in a guest house before. I also was quite surprised what a little gem of a place it was

    This was our last stop on a long trip to S Africa and one of the highlights. Swellendam is a wonderful town in a great location and the welcome and service at Schoone Oordt could not have been better. We loved the location, the pool, the decor, the food and the hospitality. Next time we'll come and stay for longer rather than as a stopover between Cape Town and the Garden Route!

    Professional and friendly welcome and genuine interest in our holiday and needs for local information - restaurants, walks etc. Bracing swim in the pool. Luxurious rooms and fireplace. Thoughtful provision of cheese platter when we decided to stay in our room rather than go out for dinner. Beautiful breakfast setting and food.
