Located neatly beside Swellendam’ s historic Drostdy Museum, old charm 4-star Boutique Hotel Roosje van de Kaap dates back to 1790. It boasts 14 beautifully appointed rooms and 2 pools in a lush garden setting with stunning views of the Langeberg mountains. As a family friendly hotel, children of all ages are welcome at low prices.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant, a historical stable, where guests can also enjoy candlelit a’ la carte dinners. The dinner menu consists of distinctive country courses with French and Cape Malay influences.
Roosje is ideally located in the oldest, calmest part of Swellendam within walking distance of coffee shops, souvenir shops and the mountains of Marloth Nature reserve.

We will most likely open again in October 2020

Rooms will be cleaned as usual with the following extra precautions:
