The cottage for two is not suitable for elderly people: cannot be reached by car, from the parking there is a steep lane of 50-100 meters. To the pool there are another steep 50 meters. Furthermore the "living" seems suitable for backpackers, two wooden kitchen chairs for the tv. We booked the cottage for 30 days and paid 14 days... More

It was our second time in De Molen Guest House. And we loved it once again! It is a quiet place nicely located on the hill, near all the interesting things we wanted to visit: such as the wine-resorts, golfclubs, beaches, etc.

This lovely guesthouse is located up a hill so the views are stunning and as its a little way out of the town, it's a very quiet and peaceful spot, truly relaxing! Lizzie gave us a warm welcome and the guesthouse has an old Dutch feel to it. We had a family loft room which has two single beds on... More

The 4 days/nights were a good time of relaxing after our journey from J'burg to Cape Town. The house offers nice places for drinks, the breakfasts and for meeting other people living at De Molen's. Excellent position of the pool! The cottage had all the important facilities you need for a quiet and recreative holiday.

I made a last minute booking over the Festive Season which was fortunate for me that I could get accommodation. I had a standard room with its own patio facing the garden. I didn't have any meals there but the staff were friendly and efficient. The property is set in a lovely quiet area and well appointed.

Having experienced a large number of accommodations in the West Cape the Molen Guest is definitely one of our favorites. Warm atmosphere, very service minded personnel and a beautiful view/surrounding. The rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast suburb. Next time we visit SA a stay in the Molen Guesthouse is absolutely part of it. In addition to this: Tanja (host/manager):... More

Everything was fine, except for the view. From our balcony, we had a view of the garden flanked by trees, and prominent was a rusty old wash line where old the old wash cloths were strung up to dry. Hardly the promised view!

We had a fantastic time in a wonderful place with great people. We will come back. The view from our room was outstanding and the quietness wonderful. It was easy to forget daylife back at home and fall into letting go!
