    That place is fantastic. You have a really nice garden area with a pool and a BBQ area. The hosts were very nice and very helpful. The cottage is really nice decorated with a look on every detail. The kitchenside has everything you need. With the hosts lives a pretty lovely dog named Emma. She is such a sweetheart and loves to get pet by the visitors. By foot you can access several restaurants and the town centre is also nearby. If you have time you have to stay at this place just to get some rest. I truly recommend this place to anyone.

    We are a young couple traveling with a one year old. The host is fabulous. We arrived at Swellendam in the evening at 8:30 and she was still able to host us and gave us one of the best rooms at a reasonable price. The room was gorgeous! The only down side is that the room is quite dusty, and it felt it has not been cleaned for a while.

    We had wonderful time in our stay at Lantern. We stayed at Thatched cottage, which is very spacious, with lovely furnishing and also cool in summer. Sparkly clean swimming pool is surrounded by lush garden. Owners were very friendly. We will definitively be back.

    A beautifully designed place. There are 3 independent cottages available. Make sure you check you are not getting the smallest room. It is not sufficient for a couple. Otherwise the rooms were really spacious and well maintained.They have a lovely barbecue and pool area along with a few rabbits around. They have a very friendly dog Emma who is always very super excited to welcome every guest. The couple who hosts this place is very lively and friendly. They suggested us to go to Barrels and Blue pub in the neighborhood which was a really good place to catch some drinks & dinner.

    What a beautiful little spot, nice and cosy when it's cold, and will definitely be back to have a swim in the pool next to the braai. Very friendly owners.

    The shower was blocked up and slippery. The chandleers had webs on it. The firewood wasn't available upon arrival. Coffee and tea provided only 2 coffees and 4 tea's and a 200ml milk provided. No kitchen cloths or sunlight liquid. The chimney wasn't clean and the whole place smoked up. Beautifully furnished but not travel friendly. I really expected more for the price paid. We left early because we cod enjoy the rest of my birthday better at home.

    I spent 4 days at Lantern cottages and I had a wonderful stay there. The room was clean and comfortable. And the pool - just perfect in the hot weather! The owners were so friendly and advised me with lots of local tips. Highly recommended!

    Review for the small cottage in the back of the property: The room is odd, appears to have been staff quarters or perhaps even stables in the distant past. Well appointed with comfortable beds including electric blankets, a rattan chair, table and four chairs, together with a gas heater. A small kitchenette with small gas stove, wash basin, and some utensils with cookware. Knives are kept sharp which we thought was a very nice, albeit subtle, touch. The bathroom is a mixed bag of cramped (basin and shelving) and spacious (shower). Water is extremely hot which was nice. The taps could do with refurbishment, basin and shower taps look worn and kitchen taps are very close to the basin causing water to splash everywhere. We travelled with pets which made the unit mostly unsuited for to our needs since we could not properly ventilate the place out - We had to keep the windows shuttered. The yard needs a lot of work, but it was wintertime and the garden looked far nicer than we expected it would. The hostess is extremely friendly and polite, yet reserved so never imposed. She recommended a few places for us to visit, all of which turned out great. All in all, the cottage is best suited for short stay and travel without pets. The location is great, around 1.4km from the town centre and far away enough from the main road that noise isn't too much of an issue.
