Traveling from Durban to Cape Town the town of Oudsthoorn is a must see. Staying at De Oude Meul was definitely a high light! Situated close to the well known Cango Caves and nearby is a very nice zoo.

Beautiful and peaceful location in the mountains. Great double unit with excellent facilities. A very relaxing environment. The breakfast buffet caters for all tastes. A great place to stay if you are visiting the caves.

We booked an overnight stay on our trip from Cape Town to Joburg and on arrival realised we had not given ourselves enough time! The family owned farm is a really lovely place to stay and our family unit was huge. Comfy beds and a well equipped kitchen, with aircon and ceiling fans if needed. We had a delicious dinner...

The restaurant has a fantastic venue inside the old mill - some of the old gears and equipent still on display. The food was well prepared but ordinary. I really felt that the layout on the plate looked good, but the combination was not complimentary - rather opposing. Friendly staff and a good setting, inside and out on the wide...

Went for dinner at De Oude Meul as staying 1 km down the road and it came highly recommended. Most unfortunately, De Oude Meul failed to live up to expectations as the food was tasteless and for what you got, quite over-priced. It's lovely to have food that looks appetizing BUT arguably taste is the most important thing, not so?...

What an awesome place for a meal, the service was with a smile the meal was a pleasure. Meat was soft and succulent the staff were very pleasant; the view on deck was amazing as you sit under the stream that runs below you. For those who need to relax when having a meal?

Visited with a group of 46, they catered perfectly for the group - going out of their way to accommodate various food preferences. All staff were friendly. Rooms clean. Lots to do in the area for children such as Cango Caves and Wilgewandel activity centre.

Great Food and Service! Food preparation looks already good as nearly always in South Africa. Nice and lovely place for a relaxing stop outside the town in a beautiful landscape! Homemade sauce and flavoured coffee are very tasty.

As we have not reserved much of the accommodation during this trip, every single stop another surprise. This one stands out out as being tucked away in a very secluded valley. Surrounded by hills ( mountains on all side ), the very small stroke of land along a small stream/river has a hotel and good looking restaurant. We were very...

We had a self-catering studio room (unit 10) which was spacious and had a little patio area with a BBQ. There was plenty of kitchen equipment which was fortunate as we ate in the restaurant on the first night but both agreed we didn't want to go back the following night. The menu was very limited and having chosen the...
