Everything was wonderful and perfect except for the TV in the room that had no reception. I like the under floor heating in the bathroom, the spacious room, the view, the surroundings, quietness, the the staff, the breakfast, everything.

I stayed at the Molen Guest House for 5 days and had a very pleasant stay. The staf was friendly, helpful and made me feel very welcome. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and Wifi is available over the entire property. Breakfast simple but complete with eggs, nice rolls, muesli, fruit and yogurt. The pool is small but has the...

I had barely got my feet into the reception area when I was affronted with a verbal bill. There was no record of my deposit either. When we got to the room the view and the room looked lovely but I could smell something not so good in the bathroom to find the large bin had not been cleaned out.... More

We stayed for four nights in the one bed, self-catering cottage and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. On the positive side, the cottage is quaint and simple but easily covered our needs for the stay and really private, there is a braai and lovely terrace. The views are stunning and the location is very peaceful and quiet. Really lovely staff,... More

De Molen is located in the most amazing grounds. The property is stunning, beautifully decorated albeit a little tired in places. Our room was comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water for a shower. A curtain or frosted glass would have been nice in the door between the bedroom and bathroom. I would definitely stay here again.

I was really wanting to stay in Stellenbosch as my son is studying there, however, rates are very expensive. I was lucky enough to find this deal with De Molen and with a little extra travelling it was well worth it. The Staff in particular made us feel very welcome.

De Molen is a Dutch owned and operated guesthouse right beneath the Helderberg. Very quiet and because of the altitude almost (flying) insect free. Stunning views from your balcony on either Gordons Bay or de Helderberg. Friendly and informal staff who let one thing an another slip sometimes. Cooked breakfast on order was the best. Nice and good restaurants nearby... More

At the start we have been a little disappointed not to be welcomed personally by the owners as we have expirienced during our longer trip in SA. At least we extended our stay by 1 week!! That tells more than necessary. A very comfortable place for golfers, due to fast excess to most of the cources being around. Friendly and... More

A wonderful inn to stay at about 30 miles outside of Cape Town. Great service, terrific on site owners and friendly and efficient staff. I would stay again anytime and would recommend it highly. Just minutes from the wine route with dozens of great restaurants.

All was good, but they must make a plan with the dogs. My friend got attacked and ended up in hospital. For this reason I will not use this place again in future. The rooms was good and easy to enter.
