    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.

    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.

    - Pool long enough so that you can do lap swimming. - apartment with spacious rooms with own en-suite bathroom connected with a large living room and kitchenette (no stove though, just microwave) Perfect for families, group of friends or two couples traveling as it offers both privacy and common space.

    We were very disappointed by Gaikou Lodge. For once, the pictures do not do justice to the place in that they portray it more favorably than reality. Swellendam is such a lovely place, so cute and so warm and Gaiku Lodge is so austere. It felt like a luxurious prison. Further, for that price in South Africa, one must at least expect a good service. That was not the case: 1) the welcome was cold and rushed, no one asked if they could help with our luggage 2) the pool at the end of the day and upon arrival was dirty and though I addressed the issue, no one cared. (The following morning it was clean though and the swim was good.) Overall, the place has no magic. I suppose it is great if you are on business, in need of a spacious place, comfort and quietness.

    The venue, accommodation and experience was wonderful. Superb setting, excellent breakfast.

    We think that you need to be clear about what you mean by self catering. True self catering requires that you need more than just a kettle and microwave. Otherwise excellent.

    Location, facilities, environment all excellent.

    The breakfast was poorly supervised. Nobody kept an eye on the coffee running out, toast ordered with our breakfast was not delivered, and service slow. It seemed that the supervisor was tending to bedrooms which we returned to after breakfast, and not to the busy breakfast time. So our rooms were made up for the next guests by 9.30 am, before we had cleaned our teeth, used the toilets, packed and departed.
