                                              Furnished with taste, this historic house has a real atmosphere. Wonderful garden with swimming pool. Nice room with good air-conditioning in the summer heat, lovely bathroom. Good breakfast with choices such as fresh fruit and croissants. Throughout very personal touch added by the owner Alice who is really good at making guests feel at home away from home. Excellent recommendation for dinner in restaurant next door rounded up our perfect experience.

                                              We had a nice stay at Elianthe`s Guesthouse. The room was nice with a lot of space and the breakfast was tasty. Our son loved the swimming pool. And they had some swings in the garden. There is plenty of space to let the kids run.For our baby they organized a baby cot and a kids chair. During our stay there was a building site next to our room. Luckily we stayed in Swellendam on the weekend so there were no disturbances.The welcome was a little bit distanced but after two nights we had a very warm goodbye. All in all we can recommend this lovely place. We will come back again.

                                              Very nice guesthouse. Lovely, neat rooms with everything you need. Superb freshly made breakfast with fresh fruit salad and home made croissants and muffins; nice hot breakfast (egg, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomato) as well as cereals, toast, cheese, preserves etc. Great value for money. My only gripe is the size of the basin... It was tiny and difficult to manoeuvre a toothbrush or facecloth under the tap. Other than that everything was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Would definitely recommend Elianthe and would definitely stay there again.Lovely pool area and garden to enjoy...

                                              we loved everything, from the arrival till departure, Alice was extremely friendly and helpful. All the other staff were great too, friendly and kind.

                                              We just spent 2 nights at Elianthes Guesthouse. It was great to be pampered for a change. The weather was lousy outside but inside it was warm and cozy. Elize was off for the weekend but Alice was on duty and she knows how to look after you. Will definitely be going back.
