Ek, my vrou en ons 19 maande oue seuntjie het 2 aande in die premier kamer by De Molen Guest House gebly.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Die uitsig is pragtig. Die ontbyt kan verbeter word, maar dis 'n wonderlike plek om by te bly.

Me, my wife and our 19 month old son stayed 2 nights in the premier room at De Molen Guest House.

We had a very nice stay. The view is beautiful. The breakfast could be improved, but it's a great place to stay.

Gastehuis is goed geleë en het 'n mooi uitsig.

Dit is in 'n rustige omgewing en die uitsig wat ons gehad het oor berg en see was uitsonderlik.

Room for improvement.

Most of the drinks in the Honesty Bar had expired - The tonic water expired in 2018. The breakfast was of very poor standard. The cold meats and cheeses had already started melting and curling by the time it arrived at our table. The waitress that was left to run the kitchen on Sunday morning did not manage on her own.

Staf vriendelik en area netjies. Lekker slaapgeriewe.

Die toegang in die estate na waar jy bly is per motor amper onmoontlik. Smal pad waarin jy nie kan omdraai nie en veral vir ouer mense is dit baie swak. Van die geriewe soos die koffiemaker is stukkend en die yskas was afgesit, wat nie help as jy net een nag bly en van jou voedsel bederfbaar is nie. Waterdruk swak.

Staff friendly and area tidy. Nice sleeping facilities.

The access in the estate to where you live is almost impossible by car. Narrow road in which you cannot turn around and especially for older people it is very poor. Some of the amenities like the coffee maker were broken and the fridge was off, which doesn't help if you're only staying one night and some of your food is perishable. Water pressure weak.

Slegs slaapplek vir een nag.

De Molen as vir ons die ideale oornagplek vir 'n besigheidsbesoek aan Kaapstad. Goeie waarde vir geld.

For us, De Molen is the ideal overnight stop for a business visit to Cape Town. Good value for money.

Aangename verblyf met voldoende geriewe en persoonlike aandag.

Die gastehuisbestuurders het die ekstra myl gegaan om ons behoorlik te ontvang, al was ons aankoms na-ure. Die kamers was netjies en gerieflik, en het ondervloerse verhitting. Ek sal weer hier wil bly.

Pleasant accommodation with sufficient facilities and personal attention.

The guesthouse managers went the extra mile to welcome us properly, even though it was after hours. The rooms were neat and convenient and had underfloor heating. I would want to stay here again.

Onaangename ervaring.

Moet asb nie De Molen gebruik nie. Hulle het 'n 4-ster-gradering, maar dit was baie swak. Die plek is aan 'n huishulp oorgelaat en nie net was sy onvriendelik nie, maar ook onwillig om te help. Die sogenaamde selfsorg-kothuis waarvoor ons R1200 vir die nag betaal het was ou huishulpkamer. Dit was nuwerig en vuil en ek het asma gekry. Die beddegoed en handdoeke was baie vuil en grillerig. Regtig 'n onaangename ervaring.

Unpleasant experience.

Please do not use De Molen. They have a 4 star rating but this was very poor. The place was left to a maid and not only was she unfriendly but also unwilling to help. The so-called self-catering cottage for which we paid R1200 for the night was an old maid's room. It was new and dirty and I got asthma. The bedding and towels were very dirty and creepy. Really an unpleasant experience.

'n Beeldskone plek met baie potensiaal, maar word ontsettend min benut.

Ons verblyf was heel aangenaam maar 'n hele paar goed het gekort: Daar was filterkoffie sonder 'n filterpapier vir die masjien, super patetiese waterdruk, 'n absoluut aaklige stort ervaring beleef. Die DStv het glad nie gewerk nie. Die TV het gesê "Your account is in arrears". Die lig in die sit-/kombuisarea was los en die lig het nie gewerk nie.

A picturesque place with a lot of potential, but is terribly underutilized.

Our stay was very pleasant but a few things were lacking: There was filter coffee without a filter paper for the machine, super pathetic water pressure, an absolutely horrible shower experience. The DStv did not work at all. The TV said "Your account is in arrears". The light in the sitting/kitchen area was loose and the light did not work.

We were warmly greeted and treated as friends by the staff. They were highly service-oriented and both the manager, Lisa, and Lizzy, were outstanding hosts. Breakfasts were good and we loved our room.

'n Baie gesellige atmosfeer in 'n pragtige omgewing. Ons het baie lekker gebly!

Vriendelike ontvangs, baie goed toegeruste kamers en kombuis, uitsig oor gevestigde tuin wat baie goed versorg word, langs reservaat. Veilige omheinde area, sentraal geleë. Sal baie graag weer hier oorbly! Baie dankie!
