The rooms work very well for a family as they are next to each other and away from... More

Very pleasant stay, comfortable beds!, beautiful rooms. Merri is extremely accomodating. We stayed on route elsewhere and the room had everything you need. It is close to the centre square of the village where there are lovely shops, cafes and restaurants.

We spent a wonderful birthday weekend away at Millpond House in July. I loved the decor of the rooms,the bed was incredibly comfortable and underfloor heating and a fireplace were a bonus. Quiet and tranquil with pretty views and the breakfasts were superb. I would definitely go back.

We stayed with Merri and Roger for one night while on a road trip. This is just an excellent place to stay. They think of everything to make the stay comfortable - even provide sockets for our cell phone chargers. Merri even did some of our laundary - nothing was too much to ask. And there is underfloor heating and... More

I very rarely give 5 stars for hotel accommodation. In fact I think this is the first in South Africa. My husband and I stayed at a remarkable restored roundhouse in the Highlands of Scotland called Auld Cummerton a couple of years ago. This had exquisite decor, including antique four poster beds, beautiful art, silver tea sets, bone china and... More
