It was a relaxing, informal environment with friendly hosts. Enjoyed the dogs, cat and horses on the property. Scenic view of farmlands from the patio. Millgate cottage met our requirements for a pleasant 2 day breakaway.
My wife and I took two friends to stay with us, we all loved the experience, it was as promised, rustic which was exactly what we needed. The wild Duiker was a special experience. The owners were nice and it was an overall great experience.
For the money we paid, we expected a lot more. Bathroom falls apart, couches in living room is so dirty, I wont allow my own dog to sit on it. Everything is full of dust, no pillow cases available, no towels in bathroom. Braaier rusted and in no condition to braai on, stoep furniture looks as if it was attacked by lions. All round very bad

What I thought would be a great experience for an international exchange student turned out to be a nightmare. Upon advising the owner (Jean Temkin) I could only check-in after 21h00 due to other commitments, Jean told me in no uncertain terms that it was unacceptable and I may arrive and not be able to access the room we had booked. Eventually Chris (pub owner) made contact with me and said he had the keys. The accommodation was average and needed a good cleaning (thick layers of dust with dead insects on shelves and cooking pot lids).

I was sent an extremely rude email during the course of the day - to which I replied "Word of mouth is a powerful advertising tool".…
