Roosje van de Kaap was such a lovely place. It’s beautiful and quiet with stunning rooms and a great pool. It’s located very close to the entrance to town, near all the main attractions of Swellendam and has a good restaurant and very friendly staff. We stayed two nights and loved it.

Roosje van de Kaap is an absolute gem and a piece of heaven. The rooms are beautifully furnished and stylish – loved the bath! The grounds and gardens are very neat, peaceful and pleasant with lovely views and character. Of all the places to stay, we chose the perfect place.

Nice cozy place with tasty breakfast & friendly staff! We’ve been travelling to Port Elizabeth from Cape and stayed for a night only, however I would love to stay longer and enjoy hotel facilities like pool & overall area. We stayed in family room with 2 bedrooms, very nice atmosphere!

This lovely property is located in the historic part of Swellendam, near the Old Drostdy Museum and other historic venues. Hospitality and service of the owner-run B&B is impeccable as well as  attention to detail in all aspects from room decor, comfort, meals and amenities.
