Very few decent places in area, and this place does meet criteria, even though it comes at a little extra price.

Puik uitsig en pragtige ligging, goeie diens, niks ingesluit, als baie duur, geen bystandkrag.

Beveel aan dat teen die prys julle gerus oorweeg om ontbyt in te sluit.

Goeie dag

Baie dankie vir u terugvoering met Melkboomsdrift.
Daar is verskillende opsies op al die besprekings webwerwe.
Dit is altyd goedkoper om direk met die eiendom in kontak te kom en dan u bespreking te bevestig.

Ons is jammer dat u nie voor af ons gekontak het om u bespreking te doen nie.
Laat weet gerus ons volgende keer indien u `n bespreking wil doen, dat ons vir u `n goeie pakket kan aanbied.

Groete

Goeie dag
Baie dankie dat u dit onder ons aandag gebring het dat u nie ingelig was oor wat als in die prys ingesluit was nie.
Op die kwotasie en bespreking, was daar 2 boodskappe wat bevestig het dat daar geen etes by die kamer prys ingesluit was nie.
Alle etes is dus opsioneel ekstra.
U kan enige tyd gaan kyk op die bevestiging.

Vriendelike gasvryheid en warm atmosfeer.

Ons wou graag braai en dit was geen moeite vir die bestuur om ons na 'n selfsorgkamer te verskuif nie en hulle het ook alles voorsien vir die braai. Dit was baie koud en daar was lekker warm elektriese komberse op die bed. Die eenheid het alles in wat benodig word en is goed toegerus. Kan Melkboomsdrift aanbeveel.

We wanted to have a barbecue and it was no problem for the management to move us to a self-catering room and they also provided everything for the barbecue. It was very cold and there were nice and warm electric blankets on the bed. The unit has everything needed and is well equipped. Can recommend Melkboomsdrift.

Die verblyf was gerieflik.

Die personeel werk asof dit 'n plig is en kan meer gasvry wees. 'n Dooie mol was in die swembad. Ek het die personeel daarop gewys, maar na die tweede dag was dit steeds daar.

Goeie dag

Baie dankie vir u terugvoering.
Ek glo daar was 'n goeie verduideliking oor die mol in die swembad.
Ons is geleë teen die rivier bedding waar molle volop is.
Met tyd gebeur dit dat van hul in die swembad beland, maar ons maak elke dag die swembad skoon indien daar enige iets ingeval het.

Dit is van die eerste wat ek hoor dat van die personeel nie gasvry was nie, u kon dit onder ons aandag gebring het dat ons die probleem dadelik aangespreek het.
Almal is gaande oor ons personeel en diens en kan nie uitgepraat raak oor hul nie.
Jammer u het nie dieselfde ervaring gehad nie.

Ons hoop om u in die toekoms weer te sien.

Blomme-kyk toer en besoek Weskus.

Ons het in die Meulkamer gebly, wat baie klein, donker en koud was. Beligting was uiters swak. Ek is baie lief vir lees en kon kwalik lees met beskikbare beligting. Verblyf was baie duur. Ver weg van ander eetplekke en aktiwiteite.

Flower viewing tour and visit West Coast.

We stayed in the Mill Room, which was very small, dark and cold. Lighting was extremely poor. I really love reading and could hardly read with available lighting. Accommodation was very expensive. Far away from other places to eat and activities.

Kamers 1 tot 4 is teenmekaar. Ons het in kamer 3 gebly en moes na kamer 4 en 2 se gesprekke en toe TV's luister. Die gasheer en gasvrou is super vriendelik, maar dit verander nie die geraasvlak van kamers 1 tot 4 nie.

Vriendelike ontvangs. Akkommodasie netjies en gerieflik.

Die prys vir die akkommodasie is totaal buite verhouding met dit wat die fasiliteit bied. Ons het op ons toer deur die Noord-Kaap in Upington oorgebly in beter akkommodasie vir 50% van die prys wat ons by Melkboomsdrift Guest House betaal het.

Friendly reception. Accommodation neat and comfortable.

The price for the accommodation is totally out of proportion to what the facility offers. On our tour of the Northern Cape we stayed in Upington in better accommodation for 50% of the price we paid at Melkboomsdrift Guest House.

Vriendelik, verwelkomend, tuis.

Dit is pragtig, dit is sentraal tot baie besienswaardighede aan die Weskus. Maar tog is dit eenkant genoeg om die rustigheid te ervaar. Die aandete en ontbyt was baie lekker en die diens uiters vriendelik.

It's beautiful, it's central to many attractions on the West Coast. But still, it is enough aside to experience the tranquility. The dinner and breakfast were very tasty and the service extremely friendly.

Ons bly gewoonlik oor by die vername plekke langs die grootpad, wat die keer volbespreek was. Was ons nie aangenaam beloon vir die moeite om net daai bietjie verder te ry nie. Ons het die multi-ster ontvangs, verblyf, etes, uitsig, veiligheid, rustigheid, deeglike kommunikasie so geniet. Ons kom weer!

Pragtig en luuks.

Die blyplek is pragtig en die uitsig oor wingerde en berge nog meer so. Die kamers is massief en luuks en die kombuisie het alles wat mens nodig kan kry. Ons het nie besef die blyplek is wel meer as 10 km buite Vredendal dorp nie. Dit sou nie 'n probleem gewees het nie want ons was van plan om by die gastehuis te eet die aand, maar siende dat dit twee dae voor Kersfees was, is meeste van die staff reeds weg gewees en die kombuis was nie oop nie. Dit was nie 'n groot probleem nie, maar ons sou dit waardeer het as die bestuurders ons vooraf gewaarsku het sodat on beter kon beplan en nie nodig gehad het om weer eens terug te ry dorp toe om kos te soek nie.

Beautiful and luxurious.

The place to stay is beautiful and the view over vineyards and mountains even more so. The rooms are massive and luxurious and the kitchen has everything you could need. We did not realize that the place to stay was more than 10 km outside Vredendal town. This would not have been a problem because we intended to eat at the guest house that evening, but seeing as it was two days before Christmas, most of the staff had already left and the kitchen was not open. It wasn't a big problem, but we would have appreciated it if the drivers had warned us in advance so that we could plan better and not have to drive back to town to look for food.

Nie wat ons verwag het nie.

Melkboomsdrift is veronderstel om 'n 4-ster plek te wees. Dit is definitief nie. Toe ek wil bad, toe kom daar vuilgoed uit die kraan uit. Daar is 'n klein venster in die kamer wat nie 'n gordyn het nie, so 'n middagslapie was onmoontlik en die son het vroegoggend al gepla. Die bed was ten minste baie gemaklik en skoon.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Not what we expected.

Melkboomsdrift is supposed to be a 4 star place. It definitely isn't. When I wanted to take a bath, dirt came out of the faucet. There is a small window in the room that does not have a curtain, so an afternoon nap was impossible and the sun was already bothering me early in the morning. At least the bed was very comfortable and clean.

Heerlik ontspannend.

Was met warmte en al geselsend verwelkom! Het ons en die toerlede vinnig laat welkom voel en werkers het almal se tasse ens. na kamers geneem en toegesien dat elke gas gerieflik is. Ons het net een nag oorgeslaap maar sou langer wou bly om die asemrowende uitsig en warmte van die omgewing te geniet. Sal die akkommodasie beslis aanbeveel maar vir meer as een nag. Dankie Melkboomsdrift, sien julle beslis weer.

Deliciously relaxing.

Was welcomed with warmth and conversation! Made us and the tour members feel welcome quickly and workers got everyone's bags etc. taken to rooms and see to it that every guest is comfortable. We only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer to enjoy the breathtaking view and warmth of the surroundings. Would definitely recommend the accommodation but for more than one night. Thank you Melkboomsdrift, definitely see you again.

Die gastehuis is pragtig gerestoureer en vol persoonlikheid.

Ons kamer (dalk het ek vereerd bespreek) was glad nie klankdig nie. Ek kon woordeliks die mense langs ons (gelukkig familie) se geprekke volg. Die warm water in die stort is so warm dat mens nie in die stort kan kom nie. Ek verstaan dis 'n gasverwarmingstelsel - maar ons leef ook met gas tuis en weet dus hoe dit werk. Die ontbyt was ongelukkig ook nie waarde vir geld nie en die trappe na die eetsaal baie steil en gevaarlik. Maar die plek is pragtig, netjies en skoon.

The guest house is beautifully restored and full of personality.

Our room (perhaps I booked honorably) was not soundproof at all. I could literally follow the speeches of the people next to us (fortunately family). The hot water in the shower is so hot that one cannot get into the shower. I understand it's a gas heating system - but we also live with gas at home and therefore know how it works. The breakfast was unfortunately also not value for money and the stairs to the dining hall very steep and dangerous. But the place is beautiful, neat and clean.

Heerlike verblyf, maar onkant gevang.

Die gastehuis is baie sentraal en bied al die nodige geriewe. Omdat ek heelwat reis en van gastehuise gebruik maak, was ek nogal onkant gevang deur die feit dat daar nie komplimentêre stortjel en sjampoe beskikbaar was (soos met al die ander gastehuise waar ek oorbly) nie. Daar was wel handewasseep by die wasbak. Ek is seker dit was maar net 'n fout wat iewers ingesluip het met die voorbereiding, maar as jy in ag neem wat die koste was vir die nag, sou jy beslis beter verwag het. As dit die standaard is dat hulle nie stortjel en sjampoe verskaf nie, moet dit dalk beter vooraf gekommunikeer word. As hulle het, het ek dit dan duidelik gemis, met gepaardgaande ongerief. Ek kan steeds die gastehuis aanbeveel, maar vir nou.

Lovely stay, but caught off guard.

The guest house is very central and offers all the necessary facilities. Because I travel a lot and use guesthouses, I was quite taken aback by the fact that there was no complimentary shower gel and shampoo available (as with all the other guesthouses I stay at). There was hand soap at the sink. I'm sure it was just a mistake that crept in somewhere in the preparation, but considering what the cost was for the night, you'd certainly have expected better. If it is the standard that they don't provide shower gel and shampoo, maybe it should be better communicated in advance. If they did, then I clearly missed it, with attendant inconvenience. I can still recommend the guest house, but for now.

Netjiese en goed toegeruste verblyf.

Baie netjiese verblyf. Sal veral in die somer pragtig wees as die wingerde alles groen is. Die eetlokaal is ongelukkig effens problematies om te bereik weens baie steil trappe wat jy moet op, en trap self is baie klein, veral met die afkom.

Very neat accommodation. Will be especially beautiful in the summer when the vines are all green. The dining room is unfortunately slightly problematic to reach due to very steep stairs you have to climb, and stairs themselves are very small, especially on the way down.

Uitstekende ligging en uitsig.

Hierdie gastehuis het baie potensiaal. Maar is verwaarloos. Die 4-ster-gradering en gepaardgaande hoë tarief is nie in lyn met standaarde vir 4 sterre nie. Ontbyt vir R150 is buitensporig gegewe wat voorgesit is.

Goeie dag Hannelie en Paul

Dis jammer om te verneem dat u die plek verwaarloos ervaar, gegewe die feit dat die Wes-Kaap gebuk gaan onder 'n groot droogte. Die seisoensverandering na herfs moet ook in ag geneem word.
Die eiendom is in 2020, 200 jaar oud. Die gebou is as 'n Nasionale Gedenkwaardigheid verklaar en dus word daar van die raad vereis om aan sekere spesifikasies te voldoen.
Ons word reeds die afgelope 8 jaar as 4 ster gegradeer en lewer gehalte diens aan ons gaste. Dit is jammer as u dit anders ervaar het.

Ons wil u en u gade hiermee nooi om 'n komplimentêre ontbyt te kom geniet wanneer dit u pas.

Groete

Dit was lekker na 'n dag in die son op die gholfbaan.

Ek en my vrou was beïndruk met die verblyf. Alles was skoon en netjies en op hulle plek. Ek verstaan daar is 'n waterskaarste (By ons in Wellington ook) en stel voor dat hulle na die "shower" krane kyk. Dit was wonderlik om Saterdagoggend op te staan en 'n mistigheid oor die wingerde te sien hang en koffie buite te sit en drink. Tuisgebakte beskuit (nie pakkies s'n nie) sou lekker gewees het. Die twee wat daar was, het ek sommer Vrydagmiddag geëet.

It was nice after a day in the sun on the golf course.

My wife and I were impressed with the accommodation. Everything was clean and tidy and in their place. I understand there is a water shortage (Here in Wellington too) and suggest that they look at the "shower" taps. It was great to get up on Saturday morning and see a mist hanging over the vineyards and sit outside drinking coffee. Home-baked rusks (not packet ones) would have been nice. The two that were there, I simply ate on Friday afternoon.
