It was a joy to stay at Marianna’s lovely house. The rooms are well appointed and the beds super comfortable. We had a delicious platter on the terrace for dinner and breakfast was excellent.
Friendly and helpful hosts
The Braeside Guest House offers wonderful accommodation and exceptional service in a great setting. The rooms are well appointed, clean and very comfortable. It is within easy walking distance of some very good restaurants and the breakfast offered is both comprehensive and delicious. Mariana, the hostess, runs a very slick operation with the assistance of Kate and Kane and guests are really treated to a wonderful experience. We are sure to return when we are in the area.
There is nothing we didn't like. Everything was first class.
Lovely quaint house, with fantastic furnishings. Marianna is an excellent host with great dining recommendations. Very enjoyable stay with lovely buffet and cooked breakfasts.
My capture already says it, we really can not describe how incredible the guesthouse and everything else was, including the super nice staff and service. We stayed in the room Genisis and it was stunning, so much love is put into every detail, so lovely!!! From the veranda you can watch the birds flying around in the beautiful garden or just relax with a cup of tea and Mariannas homemade Muffins (tastes so incredibly good). Marianna is the owner of Braeside. In the morning a wonderful breakfast, consisting of a buffet (fresh fruit, Joghurt,cheese, homemade bread, homemade muffins....+ own orders), is served. It is such a pitty that we just stayed one night at. So if you are staying at Swellendam you should definitely stay at Braeside. A special thanks to Marianna, she is such a warm-hearted person and manages this guesthouse with such a passion. You will love her! We will definitely come back! We wish you all the best! Much love Isabel and Claudio
