Our family had a wonderful stay at Old Mill Country Lodge. Plenty of fun things for the kids to do and to keep them busy. We stayed in the luxury tent and it was a wonderful first-time experience for the whole family. Lovely breakfast and the take away "vetkoek" was a nice gesture. We will definitely return again!

Stayed in tents on the river. Had 5 star accommodation. Everything was so neat and clean a very warm atmosphere. Service and food was excellent. The hunt was perfect Christo made our hunt and stay unforgettable. Thanks to everyone for treating us like elite hunter. We shot 2 black wildebeest and 2 springbok. Christo goes out of his way to please his hunters. Thank u very much will recommend this place to everyone with family and friends.

Booked last minute and would arrive late, phoned the Lodge and the Manager assured us and waited until we arrived. He suggested a meal to us over the phone, as the kitchen would be closed at the time of our arrival. On arrival, check-in was effortless and our meal was hot and beer cold. Amazing service and the facility is well equipt for what you pay, with breakfast included!!! What an amazing deal. Would highly recommend.

This establishment may have been something in it's heyday but be careful not to be mislead. I'd go further to say if you're looking for a rustic experience then this may work for you. We booked a tented room as we've always wanted to try this. What we liked is the location and the setup in terms of views and privacy. This was ideally located and indeed beautiful... accept the tent wasn't clean, the linen stale and old, the reception staff George really not guest friendly and the next morning breakfast was quite a disappointment right down to mouldy cheese watery bacon water and cold fried egg buffet and crappy coffee! Needless to say we didn't take up the second breakfast coupon we paid for. The pictures you see on the web is not where you eat at all. You don't overlook beautiful green gardens as projected. Fortunately our filthy pillows and linen was replaced and the tent properly clean for our second night. Ageneeman!

We spent a weekend at the Old Mill Country Lodge. The rooms were spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Great value for money; and beautiful surroundings. Family-friendly accommodation and a great home away from home.
