Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very nice and clean facilities, friendly staff, scenic setting but the room next door's outside unit of the air conditioner was extremely noisy. For a light sleeper like me, there wasn't much sleep to speak of.

The tent accommodation on the bank of the river was luxurious, with the sound of the strong flowing river creating a almost perfect outdoor experience. The breakfast served, by the mist friendly staff, was excellent. If we could, we would have stayed longer. We'll be back for sure.

My wife and I took our granddaughters aged 4 & 6 on a two week trip. Part of our stay was 4 days at the Old Mill. PLUSSES: Most significant upon arrival was the cleanliness of everything as well as the well kept gardens and facilities. Food presentation and quality / taste was excellent - and the portions are generous....

Very welcoming. Lovely pool areas. Food was very good. Breakfast was a real feast with everything you might hope for on the menu and food very well cooked. We overlooked the river too and it is such a tranquil setting.

It is a nice place to stay as a family. Our room was unfortunately more a container with the shower in the same room as we slept so die humid air spread in the whole container. You must book in the restaurant. Room service is available.

Our stay at Old Milll Country Lodge & Restaurant was a happy one. The environment was pleasant and peaceful, with the rabbits & horses & swimming pool to keep the kids busy.

Old Mill is a complete experience having everything one could ask for a short or extended stay. Everything was first rate in quality and approach. We didn't realize that Old Mill had a quality restaurant on location which would have saved us time looking for a place to eat while traveling through Oudtshoorn,

We had an unforgettable time at the Old Mill. We slept in an upmarket tent which added to the experience. The views were just amazing. The breakfast was really good. However the only downside was the restaurant where we eat dinner. The food was not great. I had to send back my lamb chops as did someone else. However do...
