convenience and solitude
bedroom/kitchen/bathroom layout - open plan - not ideal. Design a bit "basic"
thoughtful touches in rooms (DVDs, marshmallows & popcorn!) Rooms clean & well appointed Beautiful surroundings Helpful staff
Liked the outside seating on the veranda, and especially the pool. The bath was fab.
The TV had a lot of channels, most that we couldn't view.
Beautiful landscape. Spacious appartments/houses. Luxurious accomodation. Gated resort. Great breakfast.
Unfortunately we missed the swimming pool. At the check in nobody informed US about it.
Setting superb accommodation excellent staff friendly and helpful
Liked e everything
Extremely comfortable and spacious rooms. Very clean. Lovely staff - we were there Xmas morning and they went to a lot of trouble to make it festive - Xmas crackers, boxed cup cakes. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.
Top service even on public holidays! Prompt and thoughtful restaurant suggestion. Nice veranda that keeps you dry during the rare rain. Beautiful views on the mountains. It's a place that gives you a very safe feeling, once you passed the gate.
Wlan did not work in our room. The door of shower did not close.
Setting Size and design of room Facilities Friendly staff Great breakfast
Beautiful mountain view, well-located for restaurants, nice sized rooms, great breakfast.
2 separate single beds for a married couple! Tea & coffee station needs more stocking, staff a little aloof...could be a little more warm & friendly.
- 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.
