Nice stopover

We stayed here only one night in the separate family room.

The service here was excellent, but the room was a bit small for the four of us.

Schoone Oordt Country House review

The owner was over anxious to please "he patrolled" the dining room; was unclear about whether the alcohol was free; he insisted that a bottle of wine of which a glass had been taken be paid for. The room was rather dark and gloomy. However dinner was very good

Lovey conversion

A beautiful old house converted into an excellent small hotel. Again very good accommodation.

Attractive grounds and swimming pool. Very good breakfasts each day. We also had dinner here twice which was very satisfactory.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Schoone Oordt Country House review

Schoone Ordt was exactly what we expected, a comfortable place for a short stay to break the journey.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

Schoone Oordt Country House review

Beautiful old house with lovely rooms and the excellent service which seems to come as standard in SA.

Well positioned in the centre of town.

We didn't think there was much to do in town, so we walked in the nearby Bontebok National Park

Schoone Ood=

Schoone Oordt is a Victorian House, and is beautifully furbished with vintage furniture.

The breakfasts are very good!

There are many steps throughout the property, and it is certainly not wheelchair friendly, and could be a problem for someone with limited mobility.

First class

Our only comment is that Swellendam has not a lot happening locally and requires quite a lot of travelling to see the area around.

Many thanks to Expert Africa in recommending we book and eat at La Sosta restaurant (must be booked at least a month in advance). One of the top quality restaurants in a country which provides fantastic food.

Schoone Oordt Swellendam..

Yet again an excellent location and a restful visit after a busy tourin experience in South Africa.

Fidney, the Major Domo who met us on arrival could not have been more helpful and saw to our every need. The rest of the staff were equally helpful and here too we had our car washed daily!

Rooms were very good and it was an excellent base for visiting the De Hoop Nature Reservation.

It was the 'grandest' accommodation of our visit and an excellent end to our touring.

Schoone Oordt Country House review

Very easy to find, again great directions, a beautifully restored old house.

In a very quiet part of Swellendan, but with restaurants nearby if you wished to eat out from the hotel.

A very nice gesture was a complimentary car wash which having been around the Bontebok National park the day before, was much needed.
