8.8 Excellent
Pros: Aan de Oever Guest House (Swellendam) is a comfortable place to stay. When we arrived we were upgraded. This was a very nice surprise. Compared to the very friendly check-out with small tasty gift the check-in was somewhat formal. We stayed at the roof apartment which is big and has a balcony with view on the pool and mountains. The breakfast is very good.
Cons: We found the Swellendam village itself not so interesting. But we only stayed one night so we didn’t really explore the rest of the area.

Pros: Comfortable stay in beautiful setting
7.5 Good
Pros: Breakfast was amazing!! They also made us a lovely lunch platter as we wanted something light and didn't want to go out. Bathroom amenities were very good and we also loved the waterbed.
Cons: We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed for dinner. We specifically chose the establishment only for this reason. The on-site restaurant is advertised as part of the facilities and it shows open all year round. They should inform the guests if its closed for winter or not operating. But we opted for a take away pizza and enjoyed it by the fire:)
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Spacious bathroom
Cons: Seems a bit overrated and expensive compared to other places we stayed at on our road trip Lacks character
