Looking for a lunch spot we stumbled over The Old Mill restaurant, which is located near Oudtshoorn. It's a lovely outlook with an outside decking area overlooking a stream & although the restaurant was quiet we were made very welcome & the service very good. I chose the Ostrich burger just to give it a try & found it, along...

We were only one night at the Old Mill on our return home to Cape TowN but could easily have stayed another night as it really is very tranquil with beautiful gardens and having a beautiful swimming pool an essential as it was really, really hot.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The location is great, the restaurant serves good food, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Although its a large & spread out place we felt it all worked well, particularly the room, the swimming pool, and the sense of space.

But the other two were very tired and decorated in tacky and old bedding. It was clean but the curtains were hanging uneven on the rods, the furniture...

This is not the first visit we have paid to the Old Mill and I sincerely hope it isnt the last. The customer service and hospitality is second to none, and there are many other hotels and lodges who could learn a thing or two from how the family run this place. The rooms are superb, with luxurious beds, fantastic...

Great location. Fabulous place. Very good cooked breakfast. It also has a very nice restaurant. My double room was a detached chalet type, with all amenities; Double bed, leather sofa, shower, tv, fridge, and patio doors leading out to a wooden veranda with a picnic bench with parasol. It was overlooking the water with Weaver Birds nesting a few feet...

This was such a beautiful place, after a long day in the car in temperatures of close to 40C it was lovely to be in a comfortable air-conditioned room. The food was to die for. I only wish we had had longer to stay, but we are planning return to explore the area and will definitely use Old Mill Country...

We had the Honeymoon Cabin and it’s the only one that is located at the shore of the small lake. Everything inside is nicely decorated and makes you instantly feel good. Also they have a good restaurant and I can confirm that the grilled ostrich fillet is delicious. Unfortunately the receptionist did not forward our request to leave early in...
