Very wonderful dinner at the restaurant with extra cosy fire due to power outages. Lovely attentive staff. Very peaceful and quiet place to relax and gain some sun energie. Our car was washed in the day we left by the porter. Thank you for making our stopover in swellendam excellent. We would love to stop by on our next trip to SA and stay a bit longer .
What a beautiful and luxury Estate. High quality renovated estate and rooms. Beautiful garden and swimming pool. Very friendly owners who can tell you about the present and the past of Swellendam and surroundings. They also provide you with excellent advice on the sightseeing possibilities in the Kaap. Highly recommended.
De Kloof exudes luxury and exclusivity. From the manner in which this historic estate and buildings are maintained, managed and run to those little often overlooked extras one seldom experiences. We enjoyed a peaceful stay in pleasant surroundings with attentive staff.
