Loved the out look on to the farm, and it was getting cool when we arrived and George lite the fire for us that was lovely.
A little way out of town on a dirt road.
Rural atmosphere and peace and quiet. The accommodation was comfortable and secluded.
Access to the cottage in the dark was not easy and one needed a torch to see one's way across a sloping lawn area and a narrow foot bridge.
George and his team is extremely friendly! Had a great time in this beautifully designed cottage full of wonderful design items and breathtaking view to the mountains. Best accommodation in the Garden route!
George is a wonderful host, we arrived in the evening and he made a reservation for us at a restaurant in town. He also arranged a bottle of really good wine for us (the shops were already closed), so we could have a glass of wine while enjoying the great view (mountains and sky full of stars) from our terrace. Arumvale has great rooms (clean, beautiful decorated, everything you need), great view, very calming, just fantastic! One of our favorite stays during our 3 week visit to SA.
We were warmly welcomed by George who made our stay very comfortable throughout. And all we needed for our stay was available. We love mountains, the views are amazing and waking up to the mountains glaring in at the windows and open doors made it extra special. A beautiful place to return to over and over again.
Friendly staff Great view Lovely rustic cottage
No wifi in cottage, was not a big problem for us though
Amazing view with great facilities. Feels like home away from home.
You need to drive up a dirt road to reach the place.
Easy access of the main road but hidden away. Very comfortable lodging with a farmhouse luxury feel. The view onto the mountain range is breathtaking when you wake up in the morning(arrived in the dark) and the owners wife runs a spar which sadly I could not stay for but heard a German lady raving about it. Owner recommended some excellent restaurants to us which were close by and very good.I am returning with my wife soon!
Not much...really a very refreshing and beautiful place to stay!
location, uniqueness, friendliness. Review is based on the cottage not the house which is supposed to be fab.
early season mosquitoes :)
The scenery was absolutely beautiful and the peaceful environment made for a very relaxing weekend.
The TV is a bit small, especially when big tournaments like the FIFA world cup are running and avid supporters want to support their teams. Also, the accommodation lacks privacy as there aren't any proper curtains hanging in front of doors and windows.
Great views, gorgeous fireplace and braai area.
Driveway was a little bit difficult to move in and out of, but we managed not to hit anything!
Beautiful views, peaceful, stylish rooms.
No option to have breakfast at the lodge.
Outside of town, secure parking
No shower, room wasn't kept very clean. There was a walkway on either side of the room, not a lot of privacy
Stunning views from private terrace and a bbq set up to relax and enjoy the country side.
Beautiful location just outside of Swellendam. We had the 2-story house with an amazing view of the mountains. The house was very spacious and had everything you needed. The staff was very friendly. Owner George made a reservation in his favorite restaurant and gave us tips for our trip. We will absolutely return here!
The pool is a bit small and there was no air conditioning in the house (which would be helpful to sleep during a night of extreme high temperatures).
Solitude, peace and quiet, views Bed very comfortable
We booked a one night stay in "The Cottage" this was situated at the bottom of the garden away from the main house, very small and a bit cramped, would not wish to stay more than 1 night if self catering, the facilities were somewhat limited
Everything, it felt we are in heaven, this peaceful surrounding made us just happy.
The Farm atmosphere and décor of the cottage, peace and quite.
We stayed in the cottage and absolutely loved the beautiful bedroom and balcony with it's stunning views, where we sat and had our breakfast. This is purely self catering, so you need to be prepared, although they do supply tea, coffee (including ground coffee) and a some milk, plus the barbecue is made up & ready to cook.
Nothing much to dislike, although the sofa covers could do with replacing they look grubby, stained and tired.
What an amazing location! Room was really nice, too.
Stunning location with farm and mountains at your doorstep. Lovely pool. Cottage was amazing - beautiful decor and quiet. Within driving distance to supermarkets and restaurants.
View beautiful Owner very friendly
Room cupboard very dirty, as well as shelves in kitchen. Bed a small double, not queen size. Parking a problem, not enough space. Definately not a 4 star.
Exquisite setting. Luxurious beds and thoughtfully equipped rooms. Gorgeous pets wandering around this idyllic place. A gem.
loved the family cottage
Very clean and comfortable room (Annaline Suit). Interior very up to date. Great surrounding and landscapes. Good recommendations for activities.
