The guest house is in a good location in Swellendam, being within walking distance to some restaurants and shops, and feels very safe. Fabulous views of the mountain range from the gardens. The rooms are adequate and clean, if a bit basic. Very friendly staff, and nice breakfast. Secure parking and free Wifi.

To make it short: Warm welcome by the staff and the lady of the house. Cosy and clean cottage in a beautiful garden. Delicious dinner in the authentic restaurant. HOWEVER this firt positive impression was completly ruined next morning by choleric behaviour of the owner, who seems to think that shouting at his guests is an appropriate way of communication...

This review is reality turned upside down with purpose to hurt. The issue was as follows: This couple seems to think that it's normal to let a one year old baby crawl through the restaurant, while other people are enjoying there meal and we are working; unsafe, unhygienic and frankly annoying to other guests. In the evening the owner (while...

A group of us stayed for 2 nights after completing the whale trail - a luxurious treat after our efforts. The proprietors were very obliging and rearranged the dining room to accommodate a birthday dinner celebration. We loved lounging by the pool or finding a shady spot in the beautiful grounds to read. The museum is across the road and...

Very nice room, lovely dinner (real Indonesian!). Owners are friendly and helpful but the contact with them was rather distant, impersonal, as opposed to in most other accommodations where we stayed during our holidays.

We were so tired and exhausted when we arrived and was received with warmth and open arms. The owners are a very professional and real hospitality trained couple and you can only expect the best. Food and service was outstanding. On arrival hot coffee and fresh bottle water was awaiting in the room. It is a beautiful Guesthouse in awesome...

We enjoyed a lovely stay in the garden room with beautiful views on the surrounding mountains, and at night we had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. The staff is very friendly and Freerk&Helpi are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended!

Cute little room in the garden, very clean and cozey. Welcomed by the owners and made to feel right at home. It would have been nice to have a tv in the room but was very relaxing without the tv, allows you to switch off completely.

Decided to come back to Roosje van de Kaap after a long time. Staff still as friendly and helpful. The grounds and rooms still in mint condition. Will keep on coming back. Can't wait to have dinner. From what I can remember was excellent. Keep it up guys.

I enjoyed my stay in Roosje van de Kaap, although the first night I had stay in the dark for short while due to some power challenges not load shedding. The weather in Swellendam was cold & I could not operate the heater. It can be switched on but not feel warmth of it.
