I loved the architecture of the buildings. It is a real pity that they have chosen to go ultra modern in the decor of the bedrooms. Antique and authentic furnishings would have added a great deal to the experience. The pool is very nice. The food was very good and nicely presented. Swellendam continues to be one of the beautiful,...

We stayed in this wonderful luxury place and enjoyed every single minute of it.. Estee welcomed us at arrival and showed us around in a very relaxing and elegant way.. The perfect host. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms cosy and the interior felt like coming home.. The pool is big and beautiful. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and...

On arrival we were offered an upgrade which was a nice touch, however declined as we didn't fancy the waterbed. The room we had which was near to the entrance was perfectly acceptable if not quite as grand. The pool is a good size, although we did find broken glass around the bed chairs which was disappointing. We didn't have...

Great 2 night stay which started with an optional upgrade to the Pinot Noir/Manor House suite of this boutique hotel which has a very cool and comfortable water bed. All staff are friendly and the hotel is comfortable with nice amenities (pool, spa, gardens, lounge etc). Excellent quality products in the bathroom with really lovely towels too. Breakfast was a...

Unfortunately we had booked for only one night (well, Swellendam is rather small) and we parted with regret. The place is elegant and indeed simply "luxury". Spacious room, huge bath (with basins for giants though, you have to almost climb up to brush your teeth above the basin), cosy terrace, nice pool area, super nice garden. Great breakfast. Nice staff....

De Kloof centres around a beautiful dutch style farmhouse where the public rooms are very nicely furnished. It is set in a tranquil location that is quiet apart from a few dogs and geese. The administration though does not live up to the appearance. Despite having booked 2 luxury garden rooms 10 months ago. My wife and some friends arrived...

We stayed here for one night while travelling from Plettenberg to franschoek- what a wonderful treat it was. From the moment we pulled into the drive we were enchanted - beautiful setting, lovely grounds, friendly staff and beautiful accommodation. We were upgraded to Shiraz cottage which was large and had a private terrace. The swimming pool was a wonderful addition....

Swellendham is a very convenient first night stop over if one is driving the Garden Route. De Kloof is a delightful hotel at the top of the town with easy access to the Museum and other facilities. It is in the style of a large Dutch colonial property and has every facility that one would want, including extensive gardens and...

Would you like to have some serious pampering, a complete privacy, and a top chef’s cuisine? Then I recommend the De Kloof Luxury Estate. There you get to have your own private suite on two floors, with an-suite bathroom. They also have other kinds of suites, all with their own separate character. You are spoilt for choice. Then you get...

Awesome stay at De Kloof. Very relaxing. Tranquil atmosphere. Friendly staff. Beautiful, renovated buildings from 1801. Rooms are spacious, set among beautiful gardens. Excellent restaurant. Wish we could stay longer.
