Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Very high quality finish throughout and great attention to detail. Service was outstanding. You even get your car washed each morning. We had the loft apartment and it was great. Lovely breakfast sitting outside main house. Set in lovely grounds and a number of restaurants within walking distance and a short drive to town centre....

Surpassed all expectations. Rothman Manor has a tidy and well presented exterior, but once you enter your room and are shown round the wonderful gardens, pool and communal areas you will be transported to a piece of paradise. We could have stayed in this little piece of heaven for several more days. Excellent.

We stayed for two nights at Rothman Manor and could happily have stayed longer. The place is so peaceful and the owners are such a friendly, relaxed couple. The weather was good so we ate our breakfast on the terrace, from where we could see the Zebra and Springbok grazing in the field behind the house. The garden was beautifully... More

We booked for 2 nights, whilst driving up the Garden Route, and deeply regretted we hadn't stayed for longer. The accommodation was extremely clean, comfortable and well-appointed and our room (the Africa Suite) overlooked the pool. Everything was absolutely faultless and the breakfast selection fantastic. The owner, Andreas and his wife, couldn't have done more to make our stay so... More

We arrived cold and wet on a Saturday night in October. The owner had already switched on the heating and provided an umbrella should we want to venture further! Nothing was too much trouble and excellent 'eye to detail'. We could certainly recommend this hotel. Comfortable bed - best night sleep on garden route.

My wife and I stayed here for a night on a recent visit to South Africa and it was a little gem of a place and it was spotlessly clean and our hosts were so nice. We highly recommend this property.The staff even washed our car as part of the service.

We passed through swellendam from Cape Town on the way to Plettenberg bay. This small hotel was beautifully kept and everything was immaculate. We had a delicious lunch at drotsky restaurant and went riding in the Karoo at two feathers - not easy to find but a wonderful experience. Rothman manor has beautiful gardens and sculptures. Would thoroughly recommend

The room was in a separate building from the main house. Recently built, it is nevetheless completely in character with the original buildings. The whole site is a superb combination of buildings, ponds, pool, outdoor hot tub on a viewing deck, gardens, and wildlife preserve - very serene and peaceful. Our car was washed while we had breakfast, too. The... More
