Sorry to miss Christy and Jorus but the staff was wonderful as usual. Mandy, Lizzie and all their helpers made the experience top drawer. Second time stay and will hope for a third. Beautiful grounds and nearby restaurants and scenic drives add to the total.

This was my second time staying here. I was with 7 others and we all loved the place. Fantastic location with beautiful views. The staff is as good as it gets and are always willing to help the guests. I'd stay here again without hesitation!

If you want to get away from it all, yet be close enough to wineries, this is your place. The rooms were wonderful. The views were remarkable. The hospitality of the staff, especially Mandy, couldn't have been any better. Somerset is a bit of a drive from the liveliness of Cape Town but it certainly makes up for that with... More

We Stayed in the cottage and it clearly felt that the staff considered this, and therefor us as occupant a bit "inferior". Only the bare minimum was done, the coffee machine and television didn't work and there wasn't any towels out by the time we arrived (late afternoon). The general reception was a bit "cold", even though the rest of... More

De Molen Guest house staff was really friendly and welcoming. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Also the breakfast consisted of a good variety. Internet (3G) and Cell phone reception was not too good, might be a bit problematic should you need access. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

The staff were not always well organised. Light fitting in the main living area were very shabby and there was a lack of lightbulbs which did not give a good impression. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lastly the broken waterpipe did not help.

Hi guys We arrived quite later the evening and was happy with the communication to us that someone will be there to assist. The lady helping us was a bit all over the place and couldn't even work the card machine (I had to show her how..) Other than that, the room was beautiful and spacious. Just a note on... More

There was no information in the room about the facilities at the Guest House, TV, laundry, time of breakfast, or information of medical facilities in the area, we asked twice & still nothing was done about it. Very little information about restaurants in the area at reception. There was no English channels available on the TV, just German that we... More

We absolutely loved De Molen for our one year anniversary weekend away. It was a very last minute booking and we throught that we would just get something that was not special due to the late timing and we were wonderfully surprised - it was just lovely!

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
