    A very comfortable stay. Cozy rooms and well appointed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful views of the vineyards. A good place to visit the area from or for a quick stop over. Thanks for the hospitality.

    The quality of the room and food was excellent, the place was warm cosy and welcoming. It has all the basics one needs event thou the wifi signal needs a bit of upgrading but worked mostly depending of your direction in the room.

    Any trip on the Cape/Namibia route will not be the same without experiencing the hospitality of Melkboomsdrift B&B. The staff, the dogs and Hanika are integral to the success of this place, the views are just an added bonus. Peace and tranquillity abounds,...
