Greeted with refreshments upon arrival. Alison made dinner reservations for us, the staff made a fire in our room fireplace, brought us umbrellas in the morning so we could get to our sumptuous 3 course breakfast they served…absolutely fabulous stay.

Our family spent a lovely weekend break at Schoone Oordt. What a lovely oasis of tranquility, quality and comfort!
Owner run, nothing is too much effort and the personal service is definitely top class.
The rooms are very comfortable and spacious with evening turndowns and lovely, warm fireplaces to stave off the winter chill. The bathrooms are huge and luxurious too.
A beautiful conservatory to enjoy a delicious breakfast daily is another bonus - as are the friendly, helpful and accommodating staff.
We will definitely be back.

We really enjoyed our one night stay at Schoone Oordt en route to Cape Town - by far the most personalised service of all the accommodation we stayed at during our trip. Beautiful setting, friendly team, and quality breakfast. Alison is hands-on and a warm host and clearly passionate about her business. 5 stars well earned. Highly recommended.

*We even had our car washed before we departed!

My wife and I spent an evening at the Schoone Oordt Country House as a beginning to our road trip from Cape Town.

Prior to our arrival, Alison (the owner) messaged to ask our arrival time and whether we would be interested in cheese and biscuits by the fire which we thought was a nice touch.

We chose the coldest day of the year to arrive but were actually quite glad that we did! Upon arrival, Alison greeted us warmly and showed us to our room. The room (luxury room) was lovely - comfortable bed, hot fireplace and a very large bathroom. Everything about the room worked - there was enough space to unpack and rest and all the amenities we needed was at hand.

As for dinner - Alison recommended a few restaurants but seeing as this was mid week in July a lot of restaurants were closed. We settled on Republic of Swellendam which was fine but not memorable.

As for our breakfast the next morning at Schoone Oordt, it was great! Due to the time of year and covid, we were the only guests so it was quiet but the staff were excellent and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of.

We will definately go back in Summer to make use the garden and pool!
Highly recommended!!

Date of stay: July 2021

This boutique country hotel is layered with class, it is pervasive! Self-run by the owners and it shows in every touch of sheer quality, supported by staff who mange to be unobtrusive, yet super efficient. Sumptuously comfortable luxury rooms turned down with a radiant fireplace at bedtime (it is July after all). And then the 3 course breakfast that challenges any other offering on our shores.

Room tip: All rooms are excellent
