The Old Goat
Guest House

Biker friendly accommodation in Uniondale, Western Cape

Exciting new biker friendly accommodation in Uniondale, Western Cape

This quaint 1900’s guest house in Uniondale (Klein Karoo) started off its life as a boarding house and later evolved into the then named Swanze Gat which operated as a guest house for many years.

Now under new ownership, the renamed Old Goat Guesthouse has 2 downstairs, double en-suit rooms as well as 4 upstairs rooms – 2 of which are en-suite family rooms (sleeping up to 4 per room) and 2 double rooms with a shared bathroom.

With new, high quality bedding and linen the uniquely painted rooms are both charming and cozy.

The guest house has a shared, fully equipped kitchen, 2 lounge areas, a top floor balcony with picturesque views of Uniondale’s farms and the breathtaking Swartberg Mountains. A large downstairs, outside area allows for lighting a fire and relaxing whilst gazing at the plentiful stars under the clear, Klein Karoo sky.
