On the last Sunday of each month, there is live entertainment in conjunction with the Smorgasbord. Have only been once and sadly arrived a bit late as we didn't know it existed prior to stumbling across it. It turned out to be a fantastic feast and the traditional entertainment was a pleasant surprise. In typical german style, its about feasting... More

The problem with Hahndorf on a Tuesday night is that everything is closed. The old Mill offers bulk food and although I opted a la carte this didn't improve the quality. I ended up taking food to my room, the tray was filthy, the meat was average but the German sausage was cold. I ended up not eating and waited... More

We attended the Old Mill with our motorbike group for a private function, so we had the whole room to ourselves.... The food selection on the smorgasbord was very broad, seafood, roast meats, salads, vegetables, soups and not to mention the desserts.... such a range. If there's nothing to take your fancy or don't et requirements - you're too fussy.

Stayed here two nights. Price was the best you can get on Hahndorf. Receptionist Vikki was amazing, gave us so many great hints where to visit nearby and South Australia. Room can be very outdated or decent, as it is very old/historic building. Also rooms back side, some were closed/renovated. Street side you may hear traffic through the night. Other... More

Good selection of food, BUT everything was tepid to cold. Roast beef paper thin and had been BOILED - disgusting. Vegetables overcooked and tepid. Salads OK. Service indifferent. We have had better cooked HOT buffet food much cheaper elsewhere. We won't be back.

Don't be fooled by the old photos on the web site. The back rooms have been renovated. All is new. The only let down is the wind that comes through the front door. There is no seal so the wind comes from all around. The rest is good. The room has tea, coffee and toast making facility. I found the... More

It was OK before it was remodelled but now it's just a bistro, the days have gone where you can sit down and still enjoy the real German atmosphere with music and slap dance and Pork with Sauerkraut, now it's like get in, pay,eat get out....
