"Schoone Oordt Country House review"

1 night Arrived 22 Mar 2017
"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" See all these reviews: 14n in South Africa

"Schoone Oordt Country House review"

2 nights Arrived 28 Oct 2016
"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" See all these reviews: 21n in South Africa

"Schoone Ood="

2 nights Arrived 6 Mar 2016
"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." See all these reviews: 12n in South Africa

"First class"

3 nights Arrived 12 Feb 2016
"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." See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa

"Schoone Oordt Swellendam.."

3 nights Arrived 12 Feb 2016
"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." See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa

"Schoone Oordt Country House review"

1 night Arrived 4 Feb 2016
"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." See all these reviews: 5n in South Africa
