We enjoyed our stay at the Flametree Guesthouse in 2015 so much that we returned for a longer stay this time. It is set in a very safe area and we walked to a restaurant the first evening that had been recommended to us by Danel and Conrad, the owners. Since our last visit there has been a lot of...

Good position, welcoming host with great information for our stay. Beautiful outdoor area with pool and splendid breakfast. Very charming room, well furnished with space plus up to date ensuite. Swellendam has interesting surroundings, lovely restaurants and it is a good place to visit.

Nice property on a quiet street. Lovely host, excellent breakfast. Bedroom at front with mountain view was neat and tidy with nice bathroom, only problem was it was very warm during our stay. and the fan was noisy. Nice choice of restaurants close by.

The swimming pool was a bonus on the sweltering January day. Breakfast was awesome and the hosts were very friendly and flexible and accommodating to all my requirements The clean room was...

We were only passing through Swellendam, so only one night booked at the Flametree. On arrival, we were greeted by the very friendly owner, who explained to us we had been upgraded to a larger room. We were taken to our room, which was through the lovely garden, near the pool. It was an extension at the back of the...

Location for town is perfect . Our garden room was airy ( fan supplied) and although we thought the bed looked small it wasn't. Plenty of wardrobe space. Toiletries supplied as were tea and coffee facilities. Delicious breakfast. Danelle and Conrad are interesting and perfect hosts making time to make us feel at home . We loved it !

The owner went out of her way to be helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good. She suggested a restaraunt just around the corner which was excellent. Very safe area - an easy walk to the restaraunt.

big thank you to Conrad and Danielle for a memorable New Year's Eve stay. Conrad is an amazing cook who braaied our meat to perfection. We were made to feel so welcome and part of the family.
