  • “My husband and I stayed at Arumvale a few weeks ago, without knowing we had stayed there a few years ago. Lovely to know we still have great taste in picking and booking online accommodation :) George is absolutely amazing! We left CPT late Friday afternoon and only got to Swellendam at about 9pm, it was absolutely no problem for him to wait and open up for us.
    The room we booked were even nicer in real life than what the photos showed, and the pics were absolutely GORGEOUS!
    So lovely that the electric blankets were turned on, ready to warm up the bed on a freezing night!
    The staff super friendly and nice and it was lovely being greeted with a friendly "moooorning" ever time one of them walked passed us having our morning coffee on our balcony taking in the breathtaking views! I can not recommend Arumvale enough! We are already so excited for the next time we'll get to stay there!Keep up the great work George! You're styling at it! “ - ELMI MARAIS

  • “Arumvale is 'n pragtige plekkie en ons het baie lekker tuis gegaan in die Anneline kothuis. Ongelooflike mooi uitsig vanaf die kamer! Asook vars plaas reuke terwyl mens die waterstroom hoor in die verte :-) Die kothuis was skoon, privaat en baie gerieflik. Dit was verseker 'n baie goeie keuse vir ons eerste huweliks herdenking! Baie dankie aan George en personeel vir die gasvryheid en my pragtige blomme! Ons kom defnitief weer. Groete Tinus & Gerna“ - GERNA ROSSOUW
