A lovely guest house. The owner was friendly, generous and went out of her way to help. The room was really clean and comfortable and in a good location
Everything. Fiona is very professional. She has thougt on every detail
Fiona is a great host. Relaxed, free drinks, beautiful and large garden with splendid views. We received a free upgrade! Best breakfast with very fresh fruits.
Wonderful welcome by Fiona. After a long day and drive Tony was so impressed with the complimentary beer in the fridge. Sit on the verandah and take in the gardens with our drinks - bliss. Excellent dining close by. Property covers everything - secure, quiet, facilities and a breakfast to die for!
spacious room ("Mountain View Room"), lots of character, beautiful garden, great breakfast, reliable internet. loved listening to the frogs and birds.
such a lovely quiet and restful place owner fiona was excellent with every thing breakfeast was to die for
Braeside should be your first stop in Swellendam. Fiona the hostess is fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble.
We've had a fantastic stay at the Braeside Guesthouse! Fiona and her partner put so much love in every room, that you really can feel it! They are the best hosts ever! The rooms are very clean and have character! The breakfast is fantastic too! Highly recommended!
Garden view from rooms not as advertised on Booking.com website
I liked the friendliness of the staff and the willingness to go that extra mile to ensure our stay was enjoyable
A shower cap would be appreciated, but there was nothing I didn't like.
The Braeside hostess gave us a warm welcome with tea and juice. Since we were the only guests that night she gave us an upgrade to a large family room instead of the two rooms we had booked. It was very hot on the day of arrival and it was great to cool off in the little pool that Braeside has. The 110 year old house itself is a gem! Breakfast (which was marvelous!) was served on the veranda. There was a large choice of everything with lots of fresh fruits, and eggs were cooked to order. The location of Braeside is gorgeous, easy to find, short distance from restaurants. Did I mention the garden? A gem, too! Wish we could have stayed longer, we sure will next time!!
nothing to complain about!
I loved my large old room, the wide veranda where a lavish breakfast was served, and Fiona, who instantly made me feel at home and who took such great care of me.
Fiona is a great host. Rooms are very nice. Great place and great breakfast also!
The breakfast was the best I have had in a long time! Fiona is awesome :)
The location and the friendliness of the owner. Great breakfast. Complimentary beer and wine.
Braeside have used tasteful, period soft furnishings to create an authentic feel to the beautiful Edwardian home. This, together with the friendly and efficient staff, create a warm and welcoming ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Everything - the room, the beautiful garden, the best breakfast ever and the warm hospitality - we will tell everyone to choose Braeside if they are going through Swellendam, wish we had stayed another night.
The splash pool didn't look very inviting but we didn't mind as everything else was wonderful.
Welcoming and friendly host, nothing too much trouble. Loved being able to have free access to the public rooms in the lovely old house. The breakfast offering is 6 star, the best b&b breakfast I've ever had.
Fiona and her staff were most helpful and friendly.
We were sad not to have had a view. We had asked for a garden and pool view and were told we had the Africa room.
Fiona is the perfect host to let you feel comfortable. Don't look any further! Beautiful old house, excellent breakfast, nicely decorated rooms and a big garden. But the host is such a nice person... the best we had in eight different guest houses. Baie dankie!
Wifi in the rooms would be nice. Now you have it in the central areas.
Very nice host, excellent breakfast, charming guest house. We highly recommend staying with Fiona and her team! We had a lovely time at Braeside.
Needs a little bit of renovation.
Fiona is a world class host. Just a very friendly and nice person. You are fully looked after and service is great.
WiFi was only available in Lobby/Library.
Breakfast was excellent! Very friendly.
