"Lots of effort made and a real treat"

2 nights Arrived 26 Oct 2015
"We'd had a question mark over this one before we arrived. ....I don't know why. It was a treat. Lots of effort was made to do the best they possibly could for the guests. We were extremely well looked after.

We ate in on the first night - and didn't bother to do otherwise the next night; it was excellent. The dining room is airy and very attractive. It looked beautifully fresh for breakfast. The car was washed each morning.

The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed (but don't expect to be in the house itself); they are set in quiet, attractive gardens. Swellendam was a pleasant little town. I enjoyed the museum. We forgot to go to the Faerie Glen. Damn.

Of all the places we stayed, we are not sure this was not the best because of the service and attention to detail." See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa

"Schoone Oordt Country House review"

1 night Arrived 13 Oct 2014
"Although the accomodation was good, it did not live up to our expectations compared with the other places we stayed. Although the school house itself is old, the accomodation itself is a relatively newly built complex, behind the main house. The restaurant is a conservatory built at the side of the old house. It would have been lovely to have seen a bit more of the old school itself.

We had read good reports about the restaurant and we're hoping to eat there, but unfortunately it was not open that evening. We were recommended local restaurants but the choice within walking distance was limited (we enjoy a glass of wine and will not drive).

We did visit the Drotsky museum, which was excellent" See all these reviews: 10n in South Africa; 4n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Schoone Oordt Country House stay"

2 nights Arrived 12 Apr 2014
"This was our first visit and we loved it. The team were really friendly, our family suite delightful and the pool refreshing (it was over 35 degrees centigrade in early April.....). The food was delicious - and the afternoon tea a treat.

Its located right near the excellent Drotsky museum (fascinating insights into the history of the area. We'd have liked to spend more time here (we only had 2 nights)." See all these reviews: 12n in South Africa
