Quaint, quiet getaway with Picturesque scenery. Ancient rooms which are cozy and wonderful hospitality. There is a lapa filled with antique furniture and you can use it to braai and have dinner, however there are lots of cobwebs and I wish they would clean it more often. Fresh towels everyday and the surrounding vineyards are just breath taking.

Okay. 3 out of 5

I recently stayed at Melkboomsdrift Guest House for a business trip and truly enjoyed the time spent there. The staff really made a lot of effort to make my stay enjoyable, and went out of their way to cater for my specific dietary needs, which was a real bonus!

We found Melkboomsdrift to be a chilled, beautiful overnight stop, perfectly positioned on the way to the Orange River (Gorge, at Onseepkans), from Cape Town. Very comfortable rooms and beds, warm hospitality and a good breakfast. We had dinner at the Maskam Brewery nearby which was very vibey after a Springbok win - kid friendly and their cider is spectacular.

The staff were super friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our every request. The location is great and day trips can be made to the Hantam and the local coastal towns. Everything needed for a relaxing vacation was available and we will most definitely be staying there again in the future!
