5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2015 via mobile

This was a perfect stopover between Stanford and Addo. From the superb welcome from Mariaan to the excellent breakfast from Audrey and a fond goodbye from Jamie we felt completely honoured guests. Rooms are immaculate and the sound of the sea soothing. We cannot recommend this guesthouse too highly.

The sea views are 5 star as is the breakfast. The rooms have all those little special extra touches which made for a very relaxing and comfortable stay. The gardens give the place a country feel. The hosts are very friendly. You cant go wrong by staying here. A short drive from the airport and Mossel Bay. The local restaurant... More

The towels are definately due for replacement- they are thin and did not smell fresh. The house also smelled badly of smoke. We were still hungry after breakfast. Overall, in our opinion, we expected more from a 4 star establishment.

I travel a lot and stay over at many places. My stay at Melkhoutkloof Guest House was one of those that I will always remember. I experience the hospitality of our hosts JB and Adri as something you will have to go a far way to experience anywhere else. We were part of the family - not guests. The breakfast... More
