We stayed here on a Tennis tour and what a lovely place. The rooms (3 & 4) are huge and stunning with aircon and satellite tv.

Nice swimming pool on the grass to relax and the most friendly hosts

Def worth the 4 stars

What a beautiful guest house.
Lovely and clean room, perfect for a family of three.
Friendly bar and restaurant staff. We had a yummy dinner and breakfast. Peaceful surroundings and refreshing pool, especially after five hours of driving.
We really enjoyed our quick stopover on the way to Cape Town.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the most fabulous host, Stefan. He went above and beyond, keeping brilliant communication going and nothing was too much effort for Melkboomsdrift. We loved absolutely everything about this place and would return in a heartbeat!
The swimming pool, restaurant (breakfast and dinner), rooms and facilities are beautiful and tastefully decorated.
We booked rooms 3-5, and every single one of them was impeccable and comfortable. Room 4 was a favourite, having self catering amenities, which came in handy when making use of one of the lovely communal braais on the property.
Malcolm (waiter and barman) is so friendly and welcoming!

We have stayed at Melkboomsdrift twice now - in Dec 2012 and returned in Dec 2013. Both times booked a two night stay. Very lush lawn and swimming pool, vinedrapped verandas and awesome views across winefarms and the Sishen-Saldahna rail viaduct in the distance. Very friendly hostesses make your stay relaxed. Breakfast is great and great suppers (on order) are very special al fresco in the late summer evening. We will be back soon.
