This is a delightful Guest House in the pretty town of Swellendam. The rooms are well appointed and the property has the most beautiful views over the lovely gardens a birders paradise) and mountains beyond. We were warmly welcomed and nothing was too much trouble.

A huge stroke of luck when we decided to stay at the Aan de Oever. A wonderful two days (wish it had been longer!) The attention to detail throughout is faultless and done seemingly with no bother or effort. The bedrooms were spotless and well equipped, breakfast was wonderful. Nothing too much trouble. The whole atmosphere was relaxing and sitting...

Pool was excellent with fabulous views over the river. Breakfast was great surrounded by birds on the grass. Location good too...

We had a wonderful time at Aan de Oever, right from the beginning, when we were informed, that they booked a table for us in a great restaurant - they knew it's hard to find a table without reservation!! We had the room under the roof, big, with free standing bath tube and own balcony overlooking the pool area. The...

The biggest disappointment with this guesthouse was the small room.People who travel for for a long period need space for baggage.Everything else we experienced here was very good. They suggested good resturants which we enjoyed.The National park was also very enjoyable.Secure parking and a daily car wash was a bonus.

Set in a quiet (safe) street, just a few minutes walk (yes really) from several good restaurants. The greeting was friendly, the room comfortable with good AC and a powerful shower, breakfast was a treat and they even had somebody cleaning my car in the morning!

What an absolute gem! The location is stunning and the room was well appointed. The staff were all wonderful and nothing was too much effort, they even washed our vehicle on the morning that we left. We can highly recommend this establishment.

We only stayed one night while passing through Swellendam but on a 4 week trip this was our favourite hotel. Everything was perfect and the owner and staff could not have been more helpful. The setting was great with a river at the foot of the grounds and the mountains in the background. It was a very peaceful setting and...
