We enjoyed our stay at Elianthe`s Guesthouse. The room was as per description. The garden is a very lovely spot and we like the pool. The location is calm although it is central situated in the city of Swellendam.

This beautiful old quaint guesthouse was the perfect choice for our one-night stay on our way back to the airport. Elize was very helpful in giving us information about the choice of restaurants within walking distance. The garden, with swimming pool was lovely, and we shall certainly book this again when we return to SA next year. Great breakfast too.

This old victorian house has been done up very nicely, keeping the original charme but offering modern comforts like wifi, a nice shower and very comfortable beds. The large garden with a good size pool was very welcome on a hot day. Very friendly greeting, good Service and a nice breakfast.

We were very please with Elianthe's. On arrival we were greeted by owner Elize who made us welcome and immediately sorted somewhere for us to have dinner. (It was Valentine's Day so not an easy task) The accommodation was well prepared and clean, the location on the town's main street is easy to find with good parking. Breakfasts were good...

We stayed 2 nights at Elianthe Guesthouse and had mixed experiences. The second night electrical problems so we were not allowed any use of electricity apart of one sidelamp. So no ceilingfan although pretty hot. The room was rather small and could have better cleaning. Apart of that we enjoyed our stay, the pool, the breakfast and the bed.

Good day Thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience regarding the electricity, unfortunately it was out of our hands. Regarding the cleanliness, it is very strange due to the fact that it is on booking.com our highest score but will give attention to that. We not sure what you mean with "outdated", the building is a historic...
