Swellendam: apart from being the historically rich third-oldest town in the country and dotted with outdoor activities thanks to the Langeberg Mountains and Breede River, it is also an easy stopover between Cape Town and the coastal towns of Knysna and Plett. Rothman Manor is a charming host, found on a 3.5-hectare estate amid lush gardens, manicured lawns and pockets of shade ideal for lounging.
The heart of the Overberg is found in this region, and nearby attractions are endless – from De Hoop and Marloth nature reserves to the Drostdy Museum and the nine-hole golf course in town. A short drive will take visitors to the Robertson Wine Valley or even to the southernmost tip of Africa. The surrounding landscape also forms part of the Cape Floristic Region – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With its whimsical Cape Dutch architecture transporting you back to its roots in 1834, Rothman Manor’s stylish interior and hint of African flavour will have guests feeling relaxed and comfortable. One of six accommodation options include an XL-Suite, Suite Espirit, Suite Morning Sky, Suite Romance, Suite Africa and the Cane Room.
