A really enjoyable stay albeit too short. We were made very welcome with amazing attention to detail

A great little hotel in a very nice village on the garden route. Everything you could need for a short break and your hoists Marjolein & Roy will ensure you have a perfect stay. Town is also walking distance which is great a evening meals are only by request - but with so much choice near by this is no problem. I would recommend anyone to stay here if they were passing through Swellendam and I hope to return again sometime soon.

My wife and I stayed two days at the De Kloof Luxury Estate and it was absolutely Fabulous. Marjolein and Roy made us feel totally at home. The whole staff could not do enough for us from the breakfast and lunch service to cleaning our car on departure. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated as was the whole lounge and eating areas all situated in a beautiful tranquil setting. We would definitely recommend to everyone.
