The friendly support of all people and the way we were guided through the three days stay, was great and helpfull. Breakfast is perfect and the possibility to relax is also nice. We did not had a big room, because many families were there at the same time, but even in the small room everything was available toihave a good stay.

Great location. Friendly, genuinely warm, well informed and helpful staff (Ronel was wonderful!). First class recommendations on places to eat and things to do in town. Delicious breakfast. All round great value!And if you're a birder, you'll love the garden: Red-chested Cuckoo, Klaas's Cuckoo, Amethyst Sunbird, Grey-headed Sparrow (amongst others) and I'm sure I heard a Victorin's Warbler from the thickets on the other side of the river!

Good Morning Mark,

Wow Thank you so much for the fantastic feedback! It is lovely that you are a keen birder and that you mention a few of the spectacular birds we have in our garden as this is one of our "hidden treasures" that make Aan de Oever so special.

Hope you have a wonderful day further and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Best Wishes,
Aan de Leisure Team

Ideal place to stay on our way down the garden route. The owners recommended a restaurant in walking distance that had a french chef and 5 star food at very reasonable prices. Beautiful setting with the gardens and a steam running at the back of the property

We had only one night in the quaint little town of Swellendam, and our stay at Aan de Oever proved to be a very good choice.
In a quiet street with a beautiful outlook onto a small stream and the mountains, the setting is idyllic, and in better weather would be a wonderful spot to relax in the garden. Unfortunately we had wet and cold weather which did spoil it some. The room however was large and comfortable and took in the same vista. We were given an upstairs room under the roof with a pitched ceiling. There was a sitting area on one side, the bathroom on the other and the large bed in the centre with a small separate toilet - a really big space but quite cozy still, and very nicely appointed.
The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast very good.
It is only a short walk (perhaps 10 minutes) to a few restaurants if you don't want to drive after settling in.
