          Out of six different accommodations in S. Africa, over three weeks, this was our "splurge". The property is beautiful, the service was impeccable, and the breakfast was delicious. Upon arrival, afternoon tea, homemade lemonade, and desserts were being served. Reception made dinner reservations at a restaurant within walking distance for us. After checking-in, we went to the little pool area, which was a great place to cool off and have a cocktail. The conservatory, where meals are served, is gorgeous. Swellendam is a small town east of the wine regions. It's convenient if you're heading off on the Garden Route. There's not much there but I'd return just to stay at Schoone Oordt.

          Absolute EXCELLENCE”
          We are on a roadtrip visiting several 5* boutique hotels/B&B and Schoone Oordt is one of outstanding Excellence. It is the exceptional attentiveness of the staff that makes this place extraordinary. Housekeeping is taking care of your room while you step out for breakfast and turn down service is done when you are out for dinner. It seems that they keep a close eye on you in order to provide highest service without being noticed. Even the car is washed when you check out. Breakfast and dinner are exquisite in a perfect ambiance. We are amazed about all the eye for detail and can only say: THANK YOU for making this Grande Dame so very special with your exceptional staff!!

          Wonderful Hotel in Wilderness ”
          Schoone Oordt was a real surprise. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere, but it’s a good stopping point if you like hiking or just relaxing by the pool (really the only two things to do here). We were so pleased we booked the honeymoon suite as it was really private. If you’re not booking this suite, make sure you ask for an upstairs room. The complimentary cake, fruit and iced tea was wonderful, the staff were super friendly, and the breakfast to die for! A wonderful hotel, I would recommend.
          Reviewed March 06, 2018
          What a fantastic review! Thank you so much Kate for taking the time. There is quite a lot to do in Swellendam; there's history, a bit of local culture, horseriding, berry picking/eating, mtb-ing, canoeing, eating, art, a divine spa and yes, hiking and of course, lying by the pool :)... We'll be sure to point you in all of those directions on your next visit. Thank you so much for your kind words. You've made us all very happy today. With love from the Schoone Oordt Family
