Feedback from our guests this weekend:

Received 29.10.2012:

Dear Lana,


Thank you so much for hosting us this past weekend.


The weekend was exactly what we wanted and more, peace and quiet.  We visited all the places you recommended and was so impressed, we came back with more things that we bargained for.  Swellendam is such a warm and friendly place and it felt good getting away from the hustle and bustle from the city life.  Thank you for providing that.


We will definitely be back to visit A Hilltop, it was a memorable experience and so looking forward to the next time.


Kind Regards
