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

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
