We have been fortunate enough to enjoy some really first class hospitality in South Africa, but Schoone Oordt comes at the top of the list. A warm welcome, delicious food, brilliantly designed accommodation, friendly pets and of course sun!
Thank you so much for everything and good luck with the rest of your work (although we cannot for the life of us work out where it is needed!)

A wonderful discovery!
The attention to detail is superb: from the amazing quality linen to the thought into the breakfast dishes.
A huge success.

We enjoyed our stay very much, the room, the swimming pool, the breakfast and not to forget Chloe, Oscar and the cat Storm.
The authenticity of the place, the kindness of the people, thanks!
See you in Amsterdam.

We spent just over two weeks in South Africa, exploring from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. The country is amazing and the people all very friendly.
We had booked to stay in a top 5* rated hotel in every town we went and Schoone Oordt was the best property we stayed in.
Schoone Ooordt is really a Boutique Hotel not a Guest House, the facilities were new and of top quality and the food and service superb.
Swellendam is a great little town and is worth a visit from anyone touring in South Africa. Schoone Oordt is a great hotel in beautiful gardens and has a very friendly atmosphere.

Dear Alison, Richard & Roy
Schoone Oordt is indeed a beautiful & relaxing place – old world ambience comforted by modern convenience.
It is beyond a doubt though, the personal touch and extra effort that we will take back fondly with us.
From a surprise car wash in the morning, to umbrellas thoughtfully brought to our local restaurant on a rainy evening, we were repeatedly enchanted that Alison & co. had left no aspect of our stay uncovered or uncared for.
Schoone Oordt is one of those rare finds – a beautiful home that is the perfect destination unto itself.
