The Grande Dame of Swellendam

The manor house at De Kloof Luxury Estate is one of the oldest buildings in Swellendam and a national monument offering guests, in combination with its several outbuildings, a refined stay. A member of the Best Boutique Hotels of the World offering five-star luxury ideally situated between Cape Town and George on the Garden Route, De Kloof offers guests quality and tranquillity.

Within walking distance of the whitewashed buildings of the town centre’s superb restaurants, shops and arts and crafts, the location could not be more convenient. The Overberg coast and the Winelands along the Breede River are close enough for splendid day trips as are nature reserves and several golf courses. Alternatively, relax in the tranquil grounds filled with the sounds of fountains and the smell of rosemary and lavender. A crystal pool affords a refreshing respite from summer heat.

Room categories include sleek and spacious Deluxe Garden Suites, Luxury Rooms with garden or mountain views, the Manor XL Suite in the original manor house with king waterbed and Jacuzzi, the glamorous Grand and Honeymoon Suites also with Jacuzzis and a two-bedroom Family Suite.
