Great spot for an overnight stay

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Apr 2021
We stayed at Melkboomsdrift and found it to be a good spot for an overnight stay. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and the owners and staff are very friendly. We booked a 2 course dinner at R 200 per person and found the food to be mediocre. There was no first course or dessert offered and after having to ask for dessert, my husband was brought some ice cream with chocolate sauce. Definitely not worth R 200 per person for a 1 course meal.

The barbeque areas make this our go to accommodation in this area. The rooms are very well equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay.
The gardens and pool area are lovely. We love the tranquility. The farm setting is great!

This was our first visit and it definitely will not be our last. The location is beautiful, the rooms well equipped and the service cannot be faulted. We had dinner and breakfast both of which were delicious. To top it all our dogs loved it too!

i checked in at Melbooms under the worst possible circumstances. whilst cycling from Sishen to Saldanha i fell extremely ill and our approach of sleeping next to the railwayline each night at the point to where we could cycle for the day did not bode well.

Less than an hour after my call to check availability i was checked in and a big clean white bed awaited me... i slept for most of the day. dinner was served and I could not have hoped for fresher fish or vegetables. with a good nights sleep the body repaired itself and I managed to get back on the bike to cycle the last two days to Elandsbaai and Saldanha.

thank you for an awesome team that took care of me in a time of need.
