About Rothman Manor

Enjoy our paradise! Built in 1834, the stately Rothman Manor comprises several buildings in the Cape Dutch style on 3.5 hectares. Our guesthouse is situated at the beginning of the famous Garden Route in Swellendam, South Africa, about 200km east of Cape Town.

Relax while you enjoy the private atmosphere of the largest historic estates in Swellendam. Each room is decorated with great attention to detail in a blend of African and European style.

Enjoy an excellent breakfast served under a majestic 19th century oak. Have a swim in the large pool or relax in the jacuzzi while watching zebra, springbok and ostrich in the nature park. Take a leisurely stroll in our park and watch the birdlife around the lily pond. In the immediate neighbourhood, just 30 metres by foot, are two recommendable restaurant.


You have a choice of 6 different rooms. Three rooms are situated in the garden cottage, built in 1834 and the others in a newly build house matching perfectly to the existing national monuments.
