Schoone Oordt Country House is a charming country hotel in Swellendam with 10 luxury bedrooms set in lush gardens, an intimate Conservatory restaurant, and a sparkling saltwater pool. The emphasis here is on unpretentious, unaffected luxury, elegance, quality, and attention to detail.
There are two Standard Rooms which have all the amenities of the Luxury Rooms. Located in the garden, they are the top floor of a block of 4, accessible from the back and interleading through the balcony, so affordable for larger families or groups of friends travelling together.
The hotel’s 6 Luxury Rooms are positioned around a fragrant rose garden, peaceful fountains and landscaped shrubbery. Each Luxury Room has it’s own patio, exquisite bathroom, minibar, tea/coffee facility, satellite tv and dvd player. Handmade linen, goose-down duvets, pure wool carpets, open hearth and under-floor heating and heated towel rails in the bathrooms all add to the luxury.
The Family Cottage is a restored Coach House at the top end of the property and boasts a loft area with two extended-length single beds for children and an extended-length king for parents. It is private and cosy and set apart from other guests. As well as the luxurious treats of the other rooms, it offers a small kitchenette for warming bottles and making sandwiches.
The Honeymoon Suite is private and tucked away on the edge of a small and shady forest with the Koornlands River along at its perimeter. Whilst it has all of the amenities of the Luxury Rooms, the Honeymoon Suite is unashamedly romantic with its large hearth, exquisitely carved four-poster bed and oversized bathroom.
The hotel's Conservatory Restaurant, on it’s way to being one of the best restaurants in Swellendam, plays host to intimate delicious dinners either in the conservatory or in the manor house’s intimate dining room. Here guests can enjoy a carefully prepared, sophisticated South African menu with wines paired with every course.
