A few days ago, we were a stopover (with lunch) for an amazing cycling adventure for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. What a stunning group of people and all cycling for such a good cause. Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. What a treat.

The tour is custom designed for a max of 50 riders to experience beauty and adventure in a country like nowhere else on earth.

Date: February 27 - March 9, 2014
Location: The Cape of South Africa

Beginning in the surfer's paradise of Jeffrey's Bay, along the magnificent and breathtaking Garden Route to final destination of Cape Town and the most famous cycling event, The Cape Argus Cycle Tour. Riders covered 626 miles over 9 days that included road and off-road terrain on specially designed bicycles. From panoramic views along the edge of the rugged Cape, through farmlands and across game reserves, escorted by rangers, this is truly an unforgettable experience!

We spent Saturday night 22 March 2014 at Schoone Oordt Country House. We were heartily welcomed by the owner , Alison Walker, who went out of her way to ensure we had welcoming cooldrinks and snacks. She truly is a lovely , warm person and made all of us feel at home right from the start. Schoone Oordt Country House exceded our expectations by far. We stayed in the family cottage - the entire place is spotless , 10/10 for cleanliness ,the grounds are very well cared for and well-maintained. All the staffmembers are friendly and always ready to assist. The food was really exceptional . We met Sonette as we checked out and she is such a warm person too. The owners should be proud of themselves because this is an establishment that really deserves a rating higher than 5 STARS!!!!!!! We loved Shadow!!!!

I really meant to write this review straightaway as I was so excited by my new find. It is now a couple of months later, but my first impressions have not changed a bit. We decided to stay at Schoone Oordt as a stopover on our way to the Karoo, but wished we had stayed a few days. It is truly a hidden gem- a meticulously restored Victorian Homestead and so tastefully decorated. The setting is so tranquil- beautiful gardens and pool area, luxurious elegance and attention to detail. The staff - especially Sonet and Wander make you feel so welcome- it is genuine you can feel it comes from the heart.

Schoone Oordt is a must - both for a few days on your Garden Route road trip or as a destination in itself. The hotel is restored with so much love and a real eye for detail and the rooms are luxurious, quiet and comfortable. The food is exceptionally good and when you feel like eating out elsewhere there are a lot of options in the quaint town of Swellendam. I also booked a massage at nearby Rain Forest Spa and was really impressed with the experience. All in all, a great place to unwind, readjust and re-inspire yourself.

Really great accommodation and the hospitality is second to none. Food was of an extremely high standard. There is a beautiful swimming pool too. I would highly recommend staying here if visiting Swellendam.
