Just beautiful. We were in the Manor House which was a bit away from reception and the dining area. They send golf carts if you don't want to walk. The area is minutes away from Tokara. Just note that they don't do lunch or dinner, so you'll need to plan those at another location.

Great stay in Molenvliet. We chose this place by chance and we are not disappointed. Very nice property in a quiet area, superb location in the middle of vineyards and mountains. Very good restaurants and wine tasting just next door (Tokara, Graff). Very friendly and helpful staff. Special mention for the Montain View suite n°7 : what a view !

I recently had the absolute pleasure of spending a weekend at MolenVliet celebrating my daughters wedding. I have never been this impressed with a venue EVER....it is in a beautiful setting surrounded by mountains set in a glorious garden. The property it mainly classic Dutch colonial complemented with beautiful, carefully chosen furniture to complement the style. the staff were very attentive and professional we didn't want for anything and nothing was too much trouble. I also liked their no tipping policy, it was so much easier to show your appreciation at the end of our stay and know that any money received were shared between all staff. Do go, even if it is only for one night, all the rooms are exquisite, or to visit the Vinyard, you will not regret it.

Stayed in one of the cottages, classically and elegantly decorated for three nights, lovely breakfasts with equally lovely and attentive staff. Peaceful, relaxing area to unwind and enjoy some great wines. Will definitely be returning here to enjoy Stellenbosch and Franschhoek areas.

Property is beautiful, quiet, low key and elegant. Serene and stunning setting, staff very attentive and facilities for meetings worked well. Jet lagged participants could breathe deeply and relax in the fresh air. Being able to walk in the vineyard and among the buildings allowed us to enjoy the fine weather in between sessions and enabled leisurely and private one on one conversations. The wine is excellent although the food was rather plain and bland. The pool is on the small side.
