The nicest guesthouse we stayed in during our trip around South Africa. Very friendly and accommodating staff and excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend to everyone! The only thing missing was a fridge, as it got very hot and we would have like to keep some drinks and dairy products cold.

We stayed two nights in Aanhuizen guest house. We had a nice room and are very pleased with the friendly service by the staff and owners. The Guest house has a nice pool area and serves a very good breakfast. For our baby was a baby bed available.

We were looking for a b&b stopover en-route to Wilderness. Happily Swellendam lies exactly halfway between Cape Town and Wilderness - and Aanhuizen was perfect in every way. Tom welcomed us warmly, made us dinner reservations in town, showed us to our great family room and dished up a fabulous breakfast the next morning. Happy stay!

Hi, Just dropping a quick note to say thanks for your hospitality. The accommodation for my family and I was very comfortable for an overnight stay. The kids enjoyed the pool due to the heat too. Breakfast was very enjoyable and varied which was a pleasure too. My only negative is there was no air-con in the room (wasn't a... More

Finding the hotel wasn't so easy as it is far away from N2, but when we found it, it was great. The owner was very nice and gave us tips where to go in Swellendam and recommended us a great restaurant for the dinner.

We had a wonderful time at Aanhuizen. Tom and Olwyn were fantastic hosts and very helpful. Nice big pool to cool off in and the gardens are well maintained. Great view from the upper rooms. Some good restaurants in the area too. Close enough to Barrydale for a day trip over the Tradouw Pass, which is beautiful.

The owners were most welcoming when my son and I arrived not all that well with flu. We weren't really up to taking advantage of their beautiful grounds and the extraordinary view of the mountains, but Aanhuizen's charms are evident and the breakfast was excellent.
