We came across this lovely spot by accident. Travelling to the Orange River. We were supposed to be camping but we couldn’t find a nice camp site and found this instead. Beautifully looked after by Malcolm. Sweet swimming pool, wonderful views, delicious breakfast. What more could a couple of tired capers ask for?

Really enjoyed our stay at Melkboomsdrift after a very long and tiring trip! The views are breathtaking and the welcome was warm. Appreciated the hearty plate of food in the most beautiful lapa/restaurant.

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!

Sadly we only spent one night at Melkboomsdrift. We booked on short notice and was lucky enough to get a unit. The old build, the views and the hosts are nothing but amazing. Read the other 5-star reviews, they are all true. Tips - chat to the host about things in the area if time, they will only give good advice - order dinner, have breakfast - Lutzville for wine tasting and a mid-day snack

We spent a weekend in December at Melkboomsdrift for my brothers wedding and stayed in a self catering house with 3 spacious bedrooms all with aircons and on suite bathrooms. Towels were provided as well as cleaning service every morning. The view was fantastic and the barbeque area at the back of the house was great and had everything we need. We loved our stay here and a special thank you to our very friendly host for going the extra mile, we will definitely be back xx
