Just back from Swellendam which we spent two nights from this guest house. First of all this is not five star beautiful buildings etc but that does not cut it for me ! Our room stank of dampness in fact even the toilet paper was damp. This room has ventilation problems. The laminated flooring was disgusting and at least ten...

The estate has seen a major renovation and full refurbishment in the last months in order to preserve and upgrade the historic national monument.. It’s buildings and guestrooms have been upgraded to the highest perfection, and it was celebrated with a grand re-opening in October 2014. It’s therefor remarkable to read the comments made about the state of buildings and...

My wife booked this property via one of the travel websites and, having read reviews, expectations where high. They were met. It's a beautifully restored older property. We were shown two rooms and given the choice - both were luxury suites in nearby external buildings. It transpires we chose poorly - see below. Rooms were large, beautifully appointed with superb...

In the small town of Swellendam, i took a right turn and a left one....and stood before the gates of Heaven. Beautifull estate with a wonderfull staff. Our rooms exceeded our expectations...and with a nice temperature of 28 degrees we loved drinking our bubblies at the pool. You really need to go to 'De Kloof'!

Remarks: Attention to detail was exemplary and the staff were exceedingly competent and friendly. One of the best places we have ever stayed - absolutely to our satisfaction. Food was very tasty and the menu was wide and varied. The breakfast was done to perfection. The room was elegantly decorated and clean.

Absolutely loved our stay here the staff our amazing and such a beautifully restored property. Everywhere you look you can see the flair of the owner Marjolein's interior design skills.

We stayed in early September and really enjoyed our visit. There were two couples and we each had a spectacular room. We were greeted with a welcome drink and we had dinner in the restaurant. The food was fabulous and we all agreed that we would come again. It is a pity we could only stay one night,

We stayed in September 2014 and were a little disappointed as the hotel didn't quite match what was advertised. We were offered a choice of room which was nice, I think we were the only guests staying and the swimming pool was being renovated so the place looked a bit messy. The room was large with a comfortable bed and...

Thank you for your review as it is important for us to receive fair feedback as we constantly improve and update our product and services. For this reason the hotel was not open for public for the past winter months ( may –sept) as it underwent a total refurbishment of all rooms and suites, lounges, entire exterior and pool area...

It is not the fault of de Kloof that it has steps which were difficult to manage for my father. We also found that there was a little too much 'wildlife' for us. My son spent much of the night in his suite trying to remove a constant stream of crickets which fell from the ceiling. Other than that, the...
