This was my favourite stop on route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. It is in the most tranquil setting. Stayed in the main guesthouse, unfortunately in a room without a view (late booking). Beds comfy. Ceiling fans only. Restaurant which you need to book had wonderful fresh food, and one night a BBQ which was fantastic. The staff on...

Everything was perfect - room, pool, restaurant, food, maintenance, surroundings, staff. We woke up to a washed car without asking for it - great job. The place is highly recommendable fir a few days relaxations after a full day driving on dirt roads.

Stayed here Nov 16 - we were blown away by the setting, it is 360 degree's of stunning views. We were given a warm welcome and the kind hospitality continued throughout our stay. The restaurant is small and intimate - choices are limited but this reflects the high standard of cuisine, with home grown veg and quality meats. The room...

We arrived very late, but were still welcomed. In the morning, breakfast was served on a decking looking across the valley. The gardens are perfectly maintained. The perfect place to stay for the Cangoo Caves and the Swartberg Pass.

Everything about Swartberg Country Manor is exceptional. The location, food, service but most of all, the people. We only stayed two nights but when it was time to say our fairwells, everyone, include us, were sad to go. The restaurant, Patat serves the most incredible food, no need to go into town for dinner. Thank you......we will definately be back!...

Truly magic the stay in this property. The location first as the manor is nested at the footstep of the swartberg pass. The scenery is just breathtaking. The road heading to the manor is also worth the ride. Yes it is a bit far away from many things BUT aren't good thing and priceless pieces just around the corner? Yes...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the farm "Voorbedacht" situated in the Cango Valley at the foot of the world-renowned Swartberg Pass. The picturesque panoramic view of the Swartberg Mountains will bring comfort to anyone that wants to "get away from it all" and simply soak up the peace of its tranquil surroundings.The farm was purchased in 2003 and welcomed its first guests in February 2005. The extraordinary views of the Swartberg Mountain from the veranda of the original farmhouse compelled us to create a venue where more people could share in the tranquillity and serenity of this beautiful valley."Voorbedacht" farm is a working farm, which offers our guests the unique opportunity to explore and experience the true essence of subsistence farming in the Little Karoo. Among the various agricultural products farmed, we also farm livestock such as, cattle, sheep and ostriches. Daily walks on the farm allow guests to experience the peace and serenity of this beautiful valley, while for the more "wild at heart"; mountain bikes are available to explore the more rugged terrain. ... more   less
