Sean and his staff at GrannyMouse were truly amazing. Veronica was incredibly patient and accommodating as we planned Nancy and Ryan's Wedding from San Diego, California.

From the minute we were welcomed at the front desk, until we checked out the service was top class. The room was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. After dinner we returned to our room to find the fire had been lit, which was much appreciated given the cold conditions. We will definitely return.

Granny Mouse is just the right place to stay when you need some time to relax and unwind. The accommodation is superb, the staff attentive and helpful and the food in the restaurant just right. We have stayed here before and were not disappointed this time either.

The bistro for dinner has a nice atmosphere but the dining room...

As the promised "gourmet meal" was main reason for our stay we will not be...

Ok we accept that when you choose to eat out you pay more than a meal at home. But to order curry and to have to pay extra for rice?? R125 for chops and then to have to pay for sauce and vegetables??? We left feeling ripped off!!

Granny Mouse is an ideal stopover when travelling from Gauteng to the KZN south coast resorts. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and attentive, the rooms are charmingly comfortable and the peace and tranquility allows for instant relaxation.
