                  The surrounding was beautiful and the town not to far.

                  - Hostess was excellent and made us feel welcome although being there before check-in time- Our Neighbours had a 20 month old child they decided needed "sleep-training" whilst on holiday - they put her in bed at 18h00 and let her cry till 21h00 when I had to ask whats going on! Right next to us and not sound-proof at all

                  It was so peaceful being away from the town with such wonderful views of the mountains. However, Hermitage is only a couple of kilometres from the town so one can still visit all of Swellendam's attractions without having to travel far.

                  We loved every minute of or stay, comfortable cottage, nice pool, great view.Just one comment: a larger fridge inside the cottage would be an upgrade!
