    We passed by and stopped here spontaneously. Welcoming staff and tasty home cooked main meal. A few days later we made a point of coming back when passing again. Would recommend an overnight stay here based on our experience so far, we hadn't factored any...More

    On our way traveling from The Strand, Western Cape to Malgas with Dave & Kath Izzett. It was by accident we found this quaint BnB restaurant. I had the curry fish dish, I can't remember when last I'd such a delicious curry fish.

    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
