We offer comfortable accommodation, a sparkling saltwater pool with stunning mountain views and serve a sumptuous breakfast on the garden terrace.

Swellendam offers many activities and excursions such as beautiful mountain trails in Marloth Nature Reserve, hiking trails and game viewing in Bontebok National Park, Golf course, mountain bike tails, Drostdy Museum and many more. It can be used as the central point to visit surrounding areas, each one unique in its own right.

We will gladly help to organise your tour and day trips, which may include wine tasting at Robertson Wine Valley, a boat trip on the Breede River with picnic on the boat, a day trip to De Hoop Nature Reserve and/or to Cape Agulhas, the most southern point of Africa.

                  The Friendly owners, made our stay worthwhile. Comfortable, Bedrooms. Will recommend to friends and family to overnight, should they want to do their journey in stages, or for a weekend break away from the Hustle and Bustle of Cape Town. Breakfast was a Treat !!! Beautiful layout of the Gardens, sparkling pool, lots of Deck Chairs and Benches to unwind, enjoy the view or read a book, or socialize.
