We stayed there for one night and had a horrible experience. First, the safe in our room wasn't working properly, then our room was full of all kinds of ants and spiders. In the morning my daughter sat outside our room and suddenly there were like 20 red wasps flying around and she got two stings on her hand. To...

We stayed at De Kloof Luxury Estate for 2 nights and stayed in a luxury room, called Viognier. Beautiful gardens and all buildings traditional old Cape style in white and green. On arrival (5:30 pm) we were told that there was no one to assist us with our luggage as they have already left for the day. Not what one...

Yes, we are fans and repeaters and visit this wonderful place time after time. Always being welcomed with a smile and warm hospitality. The rooms are decorated with great taste, you can even book the one that has a waterbed in it. Never slept as deep as in this one. The lounge and restaurant are a mix of colonial style...

This is probably the best place to stay in Swellendam. We had a lovely large suite (pinot noir) but be careful which room you choose as ours had a water bed which was not to our liking. The breakfast is superb but the evening dinner menu is limited, a table d'hote, and very overpriced. The dining room is very small...

The room was lovely and the staff were very polite and helpful. Some slight issues ordering a bottle of sparkling wine and the jacuzzi bath didn't seem to function properly. The evening meal was fantastic and the breakfast was lovely (with option of sparkling wine!). Geese were a little noisy at 4am, but other than that it was a nice...

We just spent one night here before heading off to the garden route. We had the Manor Suite (Pinot) which was spacious and comfortable with the most enormous bathroom - double shower and spa bath. Wow. The bed was a water bed. I rather liked it, OH not so sure. Everything was immaculate - the grounds, the public areas, the...

It was a lovely historic property, but I would not call it a 5 star property, 4 perhaps. We were in the 2 bedroom suite. It would work fine for a family but not for 2 couples traveling together. One bedroom is open to the living room without a door. Noise easily carries from the upstairs bedroom to the downstairs...

Thank you for your review and we were pleased to have accommodated you in the spacious two bedroom/ 2 bathroom suite instead of the requested twin room. This 2 bedroom suite is our Family suite meant for for 2 adults + 2 teenagers and is therefor not suitable for 2 couples and is not allowed either or advertised as that...
