De Kloof Luxury Estate boutique hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Swellendam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 September 2017

The oldest building in the third oldest settlement in South Africa. Originally a potato farm, this is now a luxury boutique hotel comprising three main buildings, two of which are thatched. Bedrooms have large en suites, fridges with complimentary wines and beers, huge comfy beds, air conditioning, and all the usual amenities. Great restaurant, beautiful pool and exception staff make this a stay to remember - unlike the the ipad charger I left behind and they couriered it to my next place of stay in Cape Town and at no cost. Fantastic service.

Room Tip: Thatched bedroom is quaint

Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted, and shown a couple of rooms as an upgrade. Staff were excellent throughout, the room was generous and well appointed. The hair drier didn't work well, so it was quickly changed.
Dinner was 4/5 star quality, and breakfast was perfect.
Beautiful historic town, and we enjoyed a good walk around. Overall, an excellent stopover on the Garden Route. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms were excellent

We were driving the Garden Route and hadn't booked hotels in advance for this period of our trip. We booked DeKloof the day of as we were close to Swellendam and we were so delighted we did! The property is so lovely and charming and intimate! I love the history that the house was built in 1801. We stayed in the Viognier room which was a cute little cottage to itself. We also had dinner at the property and it was amazing! The staff was also very professional and nice. They even had a gentleman wash our car while we were staying there complementary (we tipped him of course). I highly recommend this place if you driving along the garden route- you won't be disappointed!

I visited De Kloof with family. They stayed in the family suite, I was in the Merlot suite next to them. A wonderful spacious room, warm, welcoming, great shower, welcome wine. A very pleasant surprise to find my car washed the next morning. The service was warm and impeccable (thank you Charlene and team), every afternoon we enjoyed drinks in the lounge, enjoying the open fire place. The dinner was delicious, so was breakfast. It really is a place were history and modern life meet. And as my sister said: de Kloof makes you come together. It was a pleasure and a true treat.

Room Tip: they are all wonderful, I guess. All different. The family suite had its own fire place and a waterb...

This place is fantastic. The venue is well designed and furnished, mixing historic features with modern elements. The rooms are large and the bathroom is superb and well appointed. Very good wine selection, delicious dinner and great (included) breakfast. The staff is also very attentive and helpful (a big thanks to Charlene who made our stay great!). I will definitely return on my next trip to South Africa. Highly recommended!
