After a long drive from Windhoek en route to Cape Town, we arrive in Springbok at the end of what seemed to be an ANC rally. We meander around the town looking for a place to stay. First stop from the highway was Mountain View …after seeing that the couple requesting accommodation was inter racial she (the owner) no longer... More

This was my 2 & 3rd visit to this guesthouse. (First and last night of trip). They are consistent in their service. The rooms are clean and spacious enough. Our group stayed in two of the family rooms: Kalkoentjiebos & Perdebos. Kalkoentjiebos (the room we stayed in) has one double bed, & 2 single beds. The sleeper couch is VERY... More

After having been rudely turned away from a confirmed booking at Biesjesfontein B&B, we were lucky enough to get a room at Old Mill Lodge. Very friendly welcome, large rambling house with a new guest room wing as well. We chose a room in the old house, which had good wifi, very comfortable bed and everything we needed. Breakfast was...

The lodge comprises beautiful old buildings in good condition. The welcoming sherry was a nice touch. I particularly liked the walk up the granite dome behind the lodge, which provides a lovely view of Springbok. The owner and manager were pleasant and helpful.

We stopped in Springbok to take a rest from the long roads - and the Old Mill Lodge proved to be a perfect place for doing this. The room was spacious and very quiet, the garden was beautiful, and the little walk up the hill right behind the house offered a nice view over town. The breakfast room is also... More

This guesthouse is set in an olde worlde fairytale garden where nooks, crannies and surprises abound. There is a pool to splash in should the heat of summer get to you. Behind the buildings is a huge rounded rock, well worth climbing for all round views of the town of Springbok. LOCATION: In town and within walking distance to shops,... More

This was our first stay at this hotel. The room we got was quite large. It had a heater which was needed due to cold weather. The room was clean and had a refrigerator, separate sink area and coffee and tea. A safe and quiet location. Breakfast was good. This is a nice, quiet and clean place worth spending the... More
