About Swellendam

The third oldest settlement in sunny South Africa, Swellendam is at the start of the Garden Route, and is the heart of the Overberg. Nestling at the foot of the majestic Langeberg mountains, it is renowned for its architecture and history.

Founded by the Dutch East India company in 1745, and named for the first governor of the Cape and his wife, the town flourished under British colonial rule, and blossomed into the jewel that it is today in a proud independent member of the Commonwealth of Nations.

My Review is long Over Due..! Every now and then I feel a need to break free from home, dogs, cat and partner. Where better than Swellendam, which has everything one needs and is not too far from my home in Greyton, South Africa. Braeside was as I hoped and more, delightful, restful and comfortable room, with wonderful surroundings. Owner Leon was extremely friendly offering great service without intrusion. I was able to take my Cocker Spaniel, Poppy, who people adored, especially Leon. I will definitely stay there again, when I need a break away.
