We stayed here mid of October and it was phenomenal. After checking in we enjoyed the afternoon by the pool. The hotel staff gave us a great recommendation for dinner, which was great. Overall the staff was super friendly and nice. We got a free upgrade and our room was spacious, clean and with all the amenities one could need.
The breakfast was great with everything you need. I would highly recommend it and come again.

Aan de Oever Guesthouse
21 Faure Street, Swellendam, South Africa
_____________________________________

Over the years of travel along the Garden Route between
Cape Town and Port Elizabeth we have frequently overnighted
or stayed for 2 or 3 days in Swellendam. Must have used 6
or 7 establishments for B&B, while dining at local restaurants
each time. In recent times, however, have been guests of
Aan de Oever and concluded that it would be difficult to find
a better choice for our needs. Judging by the growth and
quality of their facilities it would indicate that we are not the
only ones who are becoming regular and satisfied visitors to
this family-run guesthouse.

It’s located in a quiet street (just over the Main Street bridge), set
in a large, beautiful garden ranging along the river bank, with a
swimming pool. Secure, off-street parking is available. The staff
is very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts leave nothing more
to be desired.

Depending on one’s age and fitness some restaurants could be
considered to be within walking distance. We drive! Aan de Oever
will recommend (and book if needed) suitable establishments. However,
there is one particular place that is a ‘rip-off’ when it comes to wine pricing,
especially by SA standards. Aan de Oever knows who they are, so ask!
We hate to see foreign visitors being taken for a ride even though they
may be better able to afford the asked prices.

Room tip: Gget view over garden and pool
Date of stay: September 2018

Good Morning John & Margaret!

Wow, what can I say it is such a privilege to welcome you back year after year and we are truly honored that you rate Aan de Oever so highly in your review.
We won't be half the establishment we are today if it were not for the support of all our wonderful return visitors!

Look forward to the next visit.
Have a lovely day further,
Best Wishes,
Aan de Leisure Team

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.
