Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!
The breakfast was truly delicious – the granola – the best I’ve tasted anywhere and the original eggs and bacon get our vote for the best cooked fare in South Africa.
Best of luck with everything.
P.s. Poppy says thanks for letting her demolish your lego and stroke the dogs…

Nikki, Aidan & Poppy (

It was an amazing experience staying here!
Schoone Oordt FAR exceeded our expectations & we’ll definitely highly recommend to everyone we know!
Thanks very much!
Be blessed.

Wilfrid & Audrey Wolmarans

Amazing setting, fabulous room and we loved all the little personal touches. We were made to feel so welcome and were only sad that we were staying just the one night. We will definitely be back again!

Helen & Martin (Manchester, UK)

Thank you for showing to us why it will always be worthwhile to do a stopover in Swellendam. You have been very lovely and caring for us and our little one.
Will come back!

Sebastian & Diana Buechte (Germany)

We arrived with high expectations and you managed to exceed them ten times over!
Everything is spectacular.
Thank you so much.

Hannes & Angelique Pretorius (Thabazimbi)

A wonderful welcome, a beautiful house & room & what fantastic hospitality… thank you.
We’ve had such an amazing honeymoon in S.Africa & we didn’t believe that it could get any better until we arrived at Schoone Oordt.
The only disappointment is that we have to leave, but hopefully we will come back one day.
You may also have the rest of England on your doorstep now.

Claire & Matt Brocklesby (Wiltshire)

From the gracious welcome to our reluctant departure.
What a GREAT place!
So far… the best bed, the best bathroom and definitely the best breakfast.
Thank you!  We hope to be back soon.

Rebecca & Max Martirani (Australia, Italy, UK)

Dear Alison and Richard
We have travelled now over 2000km of beautiful South Africa and by far this has been the emerald at the end of the rainbow.
My only regret is not staying longer to enjoy the stunning surroundings, the loving service and… Oscar [the dog].
Thank you!  Thank you!
