An elegant country hotel in Swellendam, Schoon Oordt warmly and graciously welcomes you to experience a place passionate about some of the finest things in life: family, food and wine.
The striking and lovingly restored Victorian Manor House is at the centre of everything, encompassing you with grace and charm from the moment you arrive. There are eight luxury bedrooms, a family cottage and new extensive suite, as well as a romantic and secluded honeymoon suite all set in lush gardens.
While luxurious and with every modern convenience you could wish for, each space still manages to retain that unique and wonderful Victorian feel of yesteryear. Goose down bedding, wool carpets and percale linen combine with gorgeous antique pieces and fireplaces to form the ultimate mix of old and new. The spacious rooms each have a private patio, perfect for enjoying the scents, sounds and sights of the beautiful gardens.
In the Manor House you’ll find the light and airy conservatory, intimate dining room, country kitchen and cosy fire-lit bar and lounge. The warmth of the original wooden floors, ceilings and doors coupled with many quirky antique pieces creates a wonderful and welcoming ambience. Meals are prepared daily with love using the freshest ingredients from local suppliers, with intimate dinners being served in the conservatory, complete with an impressive list of wines. The hotel is also well known for its gourmet breakfast spreads.
Spend time soaking up the rays alongside the sparkling saltwater pool - the ideal place to cool off in the summer heat, and enjoy complimentary afternoon teas featuring home-baked goodies after a day of exploring. The area offers an array of activities from hiking and horse-riding, to biking, trail running and water sports. Venture a bit further out to spot whales during season at de Hoop Nature Reserve or go wine-tasting in the Robertson Wine Valley. Swellendam itself is brimming with interesting places, shops and restaurants so you’ll be well spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing what to do.
“Relax. Replenish. Rejuvenate. And allow us to take good care of you.” You’re in for an unforgettable stay.
