Beautiful hotel, clean rooms.
Beautiful property with hanging flowers in full bloom. A couple of friendly dogs on site (they belong to the owners). Personable proprietors. Would stay again.

A very pleasant night stop.
The property was beautifully decorated and maintained. The hostess was friendly and welcoming. Swellendam is an unusual but interesting little town with a good selection of restaurants. The nearby Bontebok Nature Reserve is well worth a visit.

Marulu Lodge in Swellendam review of stay in March
Very comfortable lodge. Staff were welcoming and setup is great with indoor and outdoor dining areas, small pool with surrounding recliners and lovely garden / yard area. Nice restaurant right next door with others in the surrounding area. All facilities available and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was comprehensive with all you could want available. Plenty of parking and lodge is in a quiet area without much foot traffic at all.
