We had the pleasure of staying here for a wedding. We stayed in the Manor House. From first arrival to departure our stay was faultless. I could not not recommend staying here enough. It was simply spectacular.

We stayed for 3 days in one of the 6 mountain view rooms. The hotel, the room, the views and overall domain is just stunning and incredible. The service is one of the highlights. Anyone you would ask a question to was so kind and helpful. One of the best hotels i have stayed at. The hotel was supposed to close due to the covid19 but they were so kind and let us stay for the 3 nights as we were only 2 couples! I highly recommend to book MolenVliet.

Molenvliet is in the heart of the most beautiful region of South Africa. If you're doubting where to stay... you've found it. You will not regret waking up here. We can't wait to be back. And the personal service matches the incredible setting!

We had our wedding at Molenvliet in February and we could not have asked for anything more. Almost all of our guests stayed on site which was so fun, everyone had an incredible stay and the views from all of the estate rooms were amazing. My bridesmaids and I (and their partners and babies!) stayed in the manor house whilst my husbands party stayed in the River Manor. Both pool areas were beautiful with the most amazing back drop, the venue has really made the most of the mountain views! Over the wedding 'weekend' the staff couldn't do enough for us, they wanted to make sure everything was perfect for us and it really was! Thank you to all of the team at Molenvliet, our guests couldn't have been happier and neither could we.

We had a lovely night at MolenVliet, the room was really great and the pool area was nice. The breakfast service in the manor house could be better, no attention at all when we came and no one was there to take our order from the menu.
