About Roosje van de Kaap
At the top of Swellendams main road the beautiful restored Drostdy museum can be seen. Beside this complex our historic 12 room Guesthouse-Restaurant is located. The view on the Mountains from our Pool and lush garden is breathtaking.
Roosje van de Kaap consists of twelve rooms in different price categories, breakfast is included and served in the restaurant where guests can enjoy a candlelight a' la carte dinner, as well. All rooms and public areas have free internet access. In the lounge, guests can read books or watch a movie on a large screen television. When the weather is warm, guests can retreat to the pool. The peace and quietness at night guarantees a good sleep.
Our twelve rooms all include a bathroom en-suite and items such as a safe, a fan, a hairdryer and a water cooker for making coffee and tea. These twelve rooms are subdivided into four Standard rooms, a family unit, five Garden rooms, one Triple Garden room and one Honeymoon room.
The standard rooms are basic rooms and consist of two single rooms and two double rooms. The Family unit consists of two connected rooms for a family of two adults and two children. The five Garden rooms have a better location and offer a lot more space and value for money. The triple room can be shared by three and the Honeymoon room is most spacious and luxurious. All rooms have antique furnishings. Free wireless internet is available throughout the premises.
Breakfast is included in the rates.
The restaurant is a local gem in an historical stable, overlooking the Drostdy building. The restaurant offers a distinctive country menu in a candle light setting.

Opposite the guest house is the location of the interesting Drostdy museum complex. Around the corner several coffee places and souvenir shops can be found and further down the main street the beautiful Dutch reformed church and a brand new shopping mall is located. All within walking distance. Going up the mountain, guests can do several hiking, mountain bike or 4x4 trails in the Marloth Nature reserve, which is located at a distance of about three kilometers.
Going to the south after driving for five kilometers on a gravel road, guests will find the entrance of the Bontebok National Park. When people are willing to drive further (about 50 minutes on gravel roads) the De Hoop National Park is a real beauty. Furthermorein the Kleine Karoo youll find the small town of Barrydale with its nice coffee shops and its entrance through the Tradouw pass which makes for a nice afternoon stop.
