Located between the green at the end of Swellendam. Nice and cosy rooms decorated with African based gadgets. Our hostess Karine is a very friendly and helpful lady. Breakfast is fantastic. Champagne breakfast and very tasty fruit. Karine also takes the time to give you the necessary information for exploring the area, such as trip to De Hoop nature reserve. Recommended!
The hostess,the breakfast
The hospitallity of Karin together with all her usefull information and traveltips. Also to be mentioned the beautiful garden, a very peacefull place.
Good day, the guesthouse owner asked me to write a message for the changed booking; I must travel back to Reunion on an urgent trip and my family stay behind; from the 01. till 03.January we was only 3 people and only the last night we use the whole booking with 4 people. The owner Karin charged us.only the Single price for the first 2 nights and ask us as well to contact you for the reduction of her commission. Please change our reservation accordingly, that she must not pay the full commision for 4 people. Thank you very much for your support. Kind regards Fam. Ambrois
Very helpful host and fantastic property.
We were the only guests and were delighted to receive a room upgrade on checkin. Beautiful surroundings. Fabulously decorated with lots of knick knacks. Wifi worked well. Superb service from Karin who was eager to share her information. A great champagne breakfast to see us off.
Lack of an oven in the kitchen. No body wash in shower.
Loved Karyn the host, she is lovely and such a wonderfully caring host
The room was a little dirty, with cobwebs and spiders on the rafters of the thatch, and the shower was moldy... Sad really, because we really loved our stay and would brave it again
We were made to feel like one of the family. Karin is fantastic she gave us loads of info on the area and with her recommendations we had great days out and found a fantastic restaurant that we frequented whilst in Swellendam. Breakfast was great and the presentation was exceptional. The house is full of carvings and antiques and very tastefully shown. Bathroom was fabulous Thank you Karin Loved every minute.

We had a pleasant stay at "The Old Thatch Lodge". The Breakfast was great decorated with fresh flowers picked out of the idyllic garden, the interior was wonderful and lovely. Karin, the friendly owner, was always present and gave us useful advices for our trips. She always wanted you to be relaxed. In this accomondation we felt welcome. Thank you, Karin!
Unfortunately, the wifi wasn't working well in every house corner.
Very nicely and specially decorated and designed with a distinctive Shiek. The room was very large, and had even a small lounge inside. It is obvious the owner has a passion for design. Owner was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was beautifully made, to both look and taste.
Personal attention and info provided to explore the area. Excellent breakfast
security - no protection in front of windows
The design inside with a lot of african details a super breakfast with Champagne Karen - the wonderful host
The smell of "old" when you entered the room a "pool" you couldn't use
Magic garden...comfortable living, a nice kitchen. Everithing perfect
