About Old Mill Guest House

The Old Mill Guest House, originally used as a watermill, has been lovingly renovated to offer a comfortable Cape style Guest House with Restaurant in a National Monument.

Just off the N2 close to the Ashton road the Old Mill has private guest parking, individually decorated cottages each have private entrance, set in a mature garden. It is easy to relax here; the welcome is warm, the smiles genuine and the style casual.

Six different rooms are welcoming, with fluffy towels, robes and fresh flowers. The breakfast and pleasant atmosphere are definitely worth getting out of bed for.

You can enjoy candlelight dinner on the premises, inside or outside under the vine leaves.

Our kitchen offers daily specials: sushi, oysters and traditional South African cuisine, we also have an extensive selection of estates wines.

          We spent a wonderful evening in the Fig Tree Cottage at the Old Mill Guesthouse.  The staff are friendly, helpful and very efficient.  We enjoyed drinks outside before a truly excellent dinner (we recommend the Springbok pie!) and breakfast was equally delicious, and generous!The room itself was lovely, with a fireplace and plenty of firewood, and comfortable bed with lovely linen.  We will stay here again!
