Schoone Oordt

Schoone Oordt

*****

Among the neat trees and quiet streets of historic Swellendam, you'll find the pretty Victorian facade of Schoone Oordt country house, a boutique bed and breakfast set among clipped lawns, fountains and rose gardens on the doorstep of the Garden Route. Stay here en route to Plett, or escape the bustle of Cape Town for a few days' R 'n' R in the idyllic Western Cape countryside…

Highlights:

  • Beautiful countryside just two hours from Cape Town – the perfect start to a Garden Route getaway

  • Pretty rooms with modern Victorian-style features – great value for money

  • Glorious gardens, swimming pool and friendly country-house feel

Smith extra

A picnic basket for two to take to the nature reserve or a bottle of sparkling wine

Also need to know:

Pampering treatments such as reflexology can be arranged at Schoone Oordt – ask for details in advance if you’d like to book something.The property is non-smoking, but you may smoke outside on your patio if you wish. Pets unfortunately cannot be accommodated (the owners already have two dogs and a cat!).

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

‘Faerie Sanctuary, Mr Smith?’ I’m standing in a tiny tourist office, thumbing flyers about pickle tasting, wondering what on earth we are going to do for the next two days. We’ve reached our destination, Swellendam, a laidback, historic farming town handily placed between Cape Town and the Garden Route. I've just discovered one pair of residents has opened their doors to a private wonderland of wizards and angels. But that’s another story. Right now I need to find our boutique country-house hotel and Mr Smith is no help at all. He’s gone to buy a kudu burger at the café next door.

Dining information

Restaurant:

Breakfast is treated seriously here: fresh herbs, vegetables and fruit are plucked from the garden, and local farm produce fills any gaps. In winter, try dishes from the voorsmakie (tasting menu) at Chef Wander's Table. As you’d expect, the wines are also wonderful, sourced from the celebrated regions of Robertson and Hermanus.

Top table:

Your private patio is the perfect place for a sundowner.

Last orders:

Depends on when the last guest retires for the evening…

Room service:

None, but there is a tea/coffee tray in your bedroom with home-made biscuits for snacking, and drinks can be served on your patio.

Hotel bar:

There’s a little lounge/chill-out room with a wide-screen plasma TV and bar for unwinding in the evenings.
