About Old Thatch Lodge
We invite you to sleep in a "National Monument", situated in Swellendam, third oldest town in South Africa and approximately 220 km from Cape Town. We would be glad to welcome you and it would be our pleasure for us to help you with further information for your holiday in this wonderful country South Africa.
Would you like to sleep in a "National Monument"? Our house in Cape Victorian Style, was the townhouse of Mr. Reitz, the governor in the early ages of 1900. Family Reitz lived on a farm. They only came to town on special days and church days, where they lived for a few days in "our" house. That was long ago, but still today the atmosphere is like in the old days.
So enjoy the evening in our beautiful lounge with an open fireplace or relax during the day in our wonderful indigenous garden and take advantage of the sauna or splash pool. Secure parking on the property.
