I made a last minute booking over the Festive Season which was fortunate for me that I could get accommodation. I had a standard room with its own patio facing the garden. I didn't have any meals there but the staff were friendly and efficient. The property is set in a lovely quiet area and well appointed.

Having experienced a large number of accommodations in the West Cape the Molen Guest is definitely one of our favorites. Warm atmosphere, very service minded personnel and a beautiful view/surrounding. The rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast suburb. Next time we visit SA a stay in the Molen Guesthouse is absolutely part of it. In addition to this: Tanja (host/manager):...

Everything was fine, except for the view. From our balcony, we had a view of the garden flanked by trees, and prominent was a rusty old wash line where old the old wash cloths were strung up to dry. Hardly the promised view!

Service was good, Room was spacious. Place far from Town/City centre. Safe,quite,solitary and beautiful. I would be glad to choose De Molen next time when i'm in CapeTown. The price for the room is fair, however consider making it a bed and brakefast for the same amount

Sorry to miss Christy and Jorus but the staff was wonderful as usual. Mandy, Lizzie and all their helpers made the experience top drawer. Second time stay and will hope for a third. Beautiful grounds and nearby restaurants and scenic drives add to the total.

This was my second time staying here. I was with 7 others and we all loved the place. Fantastic location with beautiful views. The staff is as good as it gets and are always willing to help the guests. I'd stay here again without hesitation!

If you want to get away from it all, yet be close enough to wineries, this is your place. The rooms were wonderful. The views were remarkable. The hospitality of the staff, especially Mandy, couldn't have been any better. Somerset is a bit of a drive from the liveliness of Cape Town but it certainly makes up for that with...

We Stayed in the cottage and it clearly felt that the staff considered this, and therefor us as occupant a bit "inferior". Only the bare minimum was done, the coffee machine and television didn't work and there wasn't any towels out by the time we arrived (late afternoon). The general reception was a bit "cold", even though the rest of...

De Molen Guest house staff was really friendly and welcoming. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Also the breakfast consisted of a good variety. Internet (3G) and Cell phone reception was not too good, might be a bit problematic should you need access. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
