Great and some parts average

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Sept 2021
The location and food aspects of this stay were great - the room leaves much to be desired at over R2,500.00 per night (including food). The room was advertised at 20 square meters but in reality it was no more than 16 square metres with no hanging space at all. Food and service were the highlight of this trip, however! Vacuuming under the bed and behind the fridge and table have not taken place in months.

Thank you for taking your time to give us your feedback.
So sorry the room did not ad up to your expectations.
We would have loved to remedy this problem for you on the spot, and request that you report an issue like this to us immediately in future.
I will tell the chef about the food, here at Melkboomsdrift Guesthouse we do country cuisine.

We hope to host you again.

      Always a pleasure to be at Melkboomsdrift. Thank you for clean rooms, beautiful interior and a good stay overall. What more do you need when the linen is clean and bed invites you to come to sleep! This is one place not to forget.

      We spent 2 nights at the guest house and all in all our stay was good. The rooms are comfortable with a little kitchenette if you feel like cooking something light. The electrical blankets were appreciated Stefan and his staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms on the river side are quiet with a good view. The restaurant is also nice and cosy. Nice home cooked meals, definitely recommend.

      Travelling south from Kgalagadi, my wife and I, decided to do the trip home in stages. Melkboomsdrift was the preferred choice for us and we were pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the stay. The lapa restaurant was excellent in terms of atmosphere, quality of food and service. A big thank you to Liezel and her team. We will be back again soon.

      We stayed in the House which has 3 ensuite bedrooms which was perfect for Husband & I, Gran and grown up daughter, and gathering space to relax together, plus option of dinner and full breakfast at the pavilion. On track with our expectations, surpassed them in terms of laid back and friendly vibe and good service and comfy beds with extra blankets and electric blankets,

      Smooth check-in. Very helpful staff. Overall this property has a good home feel and the staff and helpers contributed a lot to this. The nights were quite chilly and the electric blankets really came in handy. Beautiful landscape and views.
