I was a guest at the Molen Guest house in januari 2015. I enjoyed my stay very much. The house is clean and pretty, a historic (renovated) farmhouse in the hills above Somerset-West. Beautiful garden and amazing views on mountains, Gordon's bay and the sea. Our room was a pleasant surprise: comftable, big and extra long double bed, clean and... More

The location of De Molen at the top of Somerset West is exceptional with views over the Hottentot Hollands, however the cottage and furniture look tired and could do with some updating. Also, the equipment provided seemed rather mean.

Lisa was exceptional in that she had come in as interim manageress over the festive season and did an excellent job of making our stay a positive experience under the most trying conditions. The place was full for the 8 days we were there and despite staff not always turning up for work, Lisa made sure every morning that all... More

Stayed for 5 days in December in the 1-bedroom cottage. Wonderful experience. The location and view is fantastic, with the privacy an added bonus. The cottage is spacious, with everything you may need. For what you get it is a bargain in Somerset-West. The breakfast is reasonably priced and generous. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The owner and... More

The views are fantastic BUT the rooms are from the dark ages. The service was really terrible and the food really very basic. No toilet paper or hand soap in the bathroom, no decent instant coffee, not enough ground coffee for the cafeteria. The duvet was to small for the bed, no alternative to the awful foam pillows. The room... More

The hospitality and friendliness was wonderful. Christy and Jorris were amazing hosts, and we felt at home and pampered. Beds and linnen are 5*! Wish we could stay longer. jacques and Deonette and son

Yes, the view is spectacular.. both during the day and at night. But that really, is where the spectacular aspect ends. If this establishment is going to survive, the owners need to remember that they are no longer on holiday and instead, take a keen interest in the guest house they have bought. Is it too much to ask for... More

If that was genuine graded 4 star accommodation I will eat my hat. After lugging our bags up a steep hill we were told we were not allowed to drive up, we stayed in a room that was supposed to be self catering. No way we wanted to cook in that miserably equipped kitchen so we had to drive out... More

I had a wonderful stay at De Molen Guest House. Although I arrived late in the evening (missed my first flight), I was warmly welcomed and shown to my beautiful room. The view from the balcony is so exquisite that one simply can't get enough. It was an overall excellent experience. A big Thank You to Vena and Lissy who... More
