    Stopped in to have a quick breakfast on our way home and what a pleasure it was. Excellent service, excellent ambience and excellent Breakfast. African Shades is also a bed and breakfast and will be definitely on our overnight stay list.

    We chose African shades as a stopover destination in Swellendam. The name conjured up warm African colour and style which is not really what we found. However the room was functional and clean. The breakfast good.

    Pleasant stay, nice and quiet, in room at front rather than facing pool, but comfortable with good bathroom and parking right outside the door. Would use this again as it's a good base for Swellendam and Bontebok
