- Room big and very nicely decorated. - Lawns in front of the room with nice mountain views - Very helpful and nice people. - Service was out of the ordinary: laundry on the same for day as an example.
- Absolutely nothing
Very freindly and helpful staff. The room had very tasteful interiors and were very clean.
Outside no armchairs near the room.
Feeling as if we were the only people staying: breakfast alone each day. Soulless. Open plan bathroom. Gates and long driveway. Not our scene at all.
Beautiful peaceful setting Patio Quality finishes in rooms (linen, furnishings, toiletries) Clever room design and layout Thoughtfulness of kiddie snacks and DVDs Fantastic breakfast buffet Ambience of estate
The fact that we had to leave! Our short stay in Swellendam
Staff were very helpful
Kitchen facility very small
Beautiful Spotlessly clean, large bedroom and bathroom with own patio in a tranquil setting. Popcorn and sweets a novel idea for movie watching. Great base for touring and excellent value for money. Stay more than one night - lots to do in the area.
Excellent place to stay and lots to go and see
You needed a car to get anywhere
The town of Swellendam is only small but the accommodation at Gaikou Lodge is stunning. At the foot of the mountain range with amazing views and greenery all around. Rooms are well set out and very relaxing with a porch looking out to the view.
Perfect location for beautiful scenery and comfortable!
No facilities for self-catering besides bar fridge.
Spaciousness of the rooms Staff Location Cleanliness Comfort Amenities (like no charge for laundry since I spent 6 nights there) Breakfast
Would have liked a microwave oven in the unit.
Very well presented two bedroom self-catering accommodation in a beautiful setting.
Gorgeous location. Very stylish property.
Staff seemed inexperienced in dealing with guests--uncertain about restaurant recommendations, suggestions for hikes. Maybe because it was low season?
Attention to detail, quality of service, view setting. Everything was excellent.
A bidet would have been welcome.
The peaceful location in frond of nature and mountains. The luxurious fitting out and design.
One needs a car to get safely to the town center.
Fabulous property and stunning location.
Road is terrible - got a flat tyre from it. But the staff were great at helping to resolve it.
All good comfort, facilities, breakfast and staff.
No bad points
Absolutely everything. Everyone is extremely helpful, everything is beautiful and even with young children our every need was seen to. Service with a warm smile, and definitely value for money!!!
That we had to leave!!
New facility is a beautiful location. We had our own small building with a comfortable living/ dining room separating two identical bedrooms/ bathrooms. The bathrooms were awesome with a big bathtub that was open to the bedroom. The facilities also had a separate room with a toilet and shower. Our building had a large terrace overlooking the mountains. The lounge chairs had blankets ready if you became chilly. I was amazed by the breakfast which was a combo of continental and full English . The food was fresh, plentiful and excellent quality.
Had a little difficulty finding the property. When the paved road ends, you need to go a little further.
Very nice logde location. Excellent view of the mountains. Great hiking nearby.
Everything from your location, design and layout of the room, atmospher and the staff.
Weak internet connection
