The Mint Group runs accommodation in the beautiful town of Swellendam – the historic heart of the Overberg.

After Cape Town and Stellenbosch, Swellendam is the third oldest settlement in South Africa. Nestled at the foot of the beautiful Langeberg mountains, this tranquil town is not only famous for its youngberries, but also for its architecture and history.

The Mint Guest House (currently trading as Bella Rosa) offers elegant, yet affordable accommodation in a century old Victorian home.

We are situated in the main road of Swellendam, and within walking distance of all amenities and tourist attractions.

The guest house has stylish and comfortable rooms with tea & coffee making facilities, television, ceiling fan, heater, private entrance and a deck where you can relax after a day exploring the town & surrounding areas.

A scrumptious breakfast is served in the morning and light snacks and sweet treats are also available throughout the day in the cosy tea-room or garden.
