Good place to stop on the Garden route but outside of the hotel the town has very little to offer. We had a large spacious, luxury room with a sitting area and dressing room, so it was more like a small apartment than a hotel room. The room had its own patio and sun deck and was in a secluded...

We stayed in this fabulous guest house on the way from Knysna to Franschhoek and were extremely pleased with our visit. The owners run a fantastic business, enjoying their own stock of wildlife. The situation is very quiet, the rooms are well equipped and the breakfasts exquisite. Did not try the pool but it did look very inviting. Only sorry...

This was first class! It was a peaceful, relaxing place, spacious and elegant set in beautiful gardens and we wished we'd stayed longer. The breakfasts were beautiful too and the owners most helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Keith and Iola

We booked to stay at Rothman Manor for only two days/evenings (in early October) - our mistake;we should have booked to stay longer. This guest house is superb - decor, ambiance, internal and external surroundings. Super hosts, very attentive and not just at breakfast; eg great recommendations for dinner and for other places to visit. We particularly appreciated the breakfasts,...

The most beautiful guest house, in the most beautiful park. Lovely birds, zebra and bok; a great jacuzzi deck, and a nice pool. Fabulous breakfast. By far the best guest house we stayed in all of Sth Africa.

Rothman Manor is truly a magnificent guest house plus so much more. Our usual guest house (Mardhouw House) had closed to become a private residence and we were so disappointed not to stay there for a fourth time that it was with some trepidation that we arrived at Rothman Manor. Well, we were blown away! Andreas was a delightful host...

People asked "Why Swellendam?" When we said we'd been once for lunch and thought it beautiful we knew we'd found friends. If that's Swellendam, Rothman Manor is its essence. We were met by the charming Franziska and shown into the most comfortable suite imaginable, with all that anyone could require - that was until we went into the garden and...

We stayed for two nights, in two adjoining rooms. We were upgraded to suites, which was wonderful - they were huge, with great beds, a comfortable sitting area, a fridge, a TV, a separate luggage/dressing room, and enormous bathrooms. There were small outside terraces with table and chairs but it was too chilly to sit there. The rooms overlooked the...

I had the good fortune to spend two nights at Rothman Manor with my family. It really is a magnificent place to stay, the owners are indeed brilliant hosts and the breakfast superb. It is without doubt one of the very best places I have stayed in during many years of world travel
