We had only one night in this guesthouse, so we couldn´t enjoy the garden so much. The garden is amazing with a nice pool and a lot of flowers. The room was also very nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and all in all we had nothing to complain.

Good location and a perfect setting: a nice and beautifull garden around a swimmingpool. A spacious clean room. Refrigirator with self service based on trust; that's a good thing! Hosts are helpfull and friendly, although they don't seem to like small children...

Very warm, personal welcome. Very nice decorated room, a beautiful garden around the pool. Breakfast is very good with cereals, cheese, cold cuts, juices and fresh prepared egg dishes. Coffee and tea selection is available. They suggested a very good restaurant nearby for dinner. If we go again to Swellendam, we stay again in the Marula lodge.

Great value for money. Very kind owners and home atmosphere. Clean rooms, nice patio and pool for the brave ones (water a bit cold, but great for kids). Perfect located for travellers in their way on the garden route.

Very nice place, very nice room and amazing breakfast! The hosts, Filip and Marion, are very kind and helpful and we suggest us the beautiful "ferry" in Malaga. Thanks really a lot. We suggest this place even for just a night.

Marion and Filip Wolfs are super hosts, very friendly and offering elegantly decorated rooms in their lovely guest house set in a beautiful garden with views of mountains beyond. Their two dogs are also guest friendly. The outside pool is big enough for a swim (weather permitting) with sun longer and seats surrounding it. There is a functional guest lounge...

Nice clean rooms. Wonderful hosts. Good breakfast. Lovely yard with pool. We were able to walk to town. Only problem was that we were there on a Sunday and most things were closed and it was hard to find a good restaurant for dinner. Mike and nancy

Warm welcome from the owners of this very nice accomodation in Swellendam. Comfortable rooms, perfect swimming pool for the summer months, and a magnificent garden around it. There is a braai corner for the 'amateurs'... The wifi and the tv were a little bit hazardous, as always in SA. And we got up too early for breakfast, having not understood...

Love the place, but found the room toooo close to the pool, I feel that with the room being so close to the pool the glass door should have a roll-up blind attached to it for more privacy.. other than that We enjoyed our stay
