The Old Mill Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. The beds are comfortable and the room had everything we needed. The breakfast was good and had lots of variety. The owner/staff are all friendly and welcoming.

The price for this establishment is quite high compared to guesthouses of similar standard in Springbok. I am a fairly regular patron and the price over the past year has escalated considerably. The rooms are comfortable, privacy is great and the breakfast is fair.
