Beautiful scenery from a perfect country lodge! What make's it even better is the friendliness and service of the staff that is between personal butler and a close friend. Next time in S.A. we will try to add a night!

This was a great experience and would like to recommend to everybody. We enjoyed the friendlyness of the Team, level of service and care. The location is great, specially for MTB, or motor bikes and outdoor in general. Thanks, cheers,

We spent 2 days in this lodge, and are absolutely enthusiast about it. Fantastic location with great views on the surrounding mountains. Excellent service and care, by the managers and all staff members. We are MTB lovers and this region offers tons of great biking options. Absolutely recommended.

Our first time to the Valley and what a gorgeous place this is. Staff were so accommodating and friendly. . The rooms are so clean and neatly decorated. The scenery is out of this world. It's on the doorstep of the swartberg pass. The food is delicious at Patat restaurant, best ostrich steak on our cape trip. The whole establishment...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed the beautiful views of the Swartberg Pass which is spectacular. Very personal service at all times from Leoni, her husband and son. Delicious dinners and breakfasts on an open stoep. Attentive and well trained staff. A very relaxing break.

We recently spent two wonderful (non-consecutive, long story!) nights at Swartberg Country Manor. Riaan (the manager) greeted us at the door and already knew our names before we even introduced ourselves! He made us feel instantly welcome and spoke to us like friends instead of guests. We were shown to our room after checking in. We were staying in the...

Wonderful authentic renovated chic manor. Great porch and pool, everything has direct view on the spectacular Swartberg mountains. Staff asks questions to see how they can make your stay unforgettable. Hidden gem!! Room Tip: ask for the authentic manor house

We stayed at Swartberg Country Manor for two nights. Very clean non self catering cottage with a picturesque view of the Swartberg. Extremely good service. For those willing to pay the price the food is excellent. Good location from where you can explore the Swartberg pass, Cango caves and quaint klein karoo towns.

This was my favourite stop on route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. It is in the most tranquil setting. Stayed in the main guesthouse, unfortunately in a room without a view (late booking). Beds comfy. Ceiling fans only. Restaurant which you need to book had wonderful fresh food, and one night a BBQ which was fantastic. The staff on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Swartberg Country Manor is nestled on the farm "Voorbedacht" situated in the Cango Valley at the foot of the world-renowned Swartberg Pass. The picturesque panoramic view of the Swartberg Mountains will bring comfort to anyone that wants to "get away from it all" and simply soak up the peace of its tranquil surroundings.The farm was purchased in 2003 and welcomed its first guests in February 2005. The extraordinary views of the Swartberg Mountain from the veranda of the original farmhouse compelled us to create a venue where more people could share in the tranquillity and serenity of this beautiful valley."Voorbedacht" farm is a working farm, which offers our guests the unique opportunity to explore and experience the true essence of subsistence farming in the Little Karoo. Among the various agricultural products farmed, we also farm livestock such as, cattle, sheep and ostriches. Daily walks on the farm allow guests to experience the peace and serenity of this beautiful valley, while for the more "wild at heart"; mountain bikes are available to explore the more rugged terrain. ... more   less
