                                              Hotel needs serious revamp, nothing appears to have been done since the owners bought it in 1971. Missing opportunities here to be a fabulous hotel in Swellendam. The room we were given originally was appalling, just like being in a hospital. Nobody should have to stay in that!

                                              You get what you pay for- a nice spacious bedroom with separate bathroom in quiet surroundings. Definitely value for money.

                                              It is an old building with a tired look, especially the rooms. The old lady yust needs some new clothes.
