Lovely one-night-stay :)
We had a very pleasant stay in Swellendam. We were only here for one night and stayed at Aviento. The host ist very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Our room was clean with everything you need while backpacking. 🙂 One recommendation though, we had the budget room and there was no door to the toilet. It would be very nice to just have a sliding door if the space is the problem for not having one. Best, Lark & Olivia
