After a day in Cape Town, another one in Fish Hoek, we arrived in the lovely little town of Swellendam. The stay at the Coachman was so unbelievably pleasant. The romantic bedroom, nice pool and fantastic service from the host Lana gave us a night to remember. I recommend the Coachman to anyone travling through Swellendam! I will be back...

Stunning Historical Country house in the heart of the Overberg and on The GArden Route. Perfect halfway to Knysna or Cape Town. Relaxed atmospere but with 5 Star service and luxuary. Affordable Rates, Good breakfast, Value for money. The Town is a must and you need to stay at least two days to experience it all.
