we arrived to this place by chance, leaving the highway, looking for a place to stay overnght on our way from the Blyde River canyon to Soweto, almost desesperate because all place on tha Lonely Planet were closed. The Grey's Inn is wonderful, the owner reserved us a warm welcome. Food is really good, rooms are really nice and clean, price very accessible. The owner and his family are really nice people, the made us feeling like at home and give us a lot very interesting info on South Africa

We would not have stopped in Machadodorp was it not for the fact that it was getting dark. What a nice place, such nice people going out of their way to make us comfortable, giving us a big room, a welcome drink, nice food, information about how to get to Kruger Park from there on the best road (no potholes) and... all that for next to nothing. But even if it had cost more I would have stayed there! I can recommend wholeheartedly.

We stopped there for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We did not expect much in this small town, but we had a great time at the Grey`s Inn. The food was excellent and the owner shared some of the history of the town and buildings with us. Treat yourself and stop at the Grey`s Inn for a meal and personal attention from the owner.

There is a shebeen on the premises. Loud music until 00:30.
No barrier between shebeen clients and rooms - drunk people had access to our vehicles and rooms.
No hot water. Had to take a cold shower the next morning.
Won't recommend this place if you have to travel a long distance the next day.

For years we have passed through Machadodorp without stopping for lack of any reason to stop. Today by pure chance we passed the front entrance to the Greys Inn which was open and we made a u-turn to investigate. And what a pleasant surprise. Fantastic pub with serious history (built in 1895) with a huge fireplace and lovely hardwood original bar counter. Coffee shop next door and large renovated function room in the rear and very accommodating rooms for those who wish to overnight. We ended up spending a couple of hours there and enjoyed a great lunch of good value. The chicken schnitzel was the favorite dish and a generous portion. Well done guys for bringing some life back into Machadodorp!

Brilliant gem hiden behind great old facades. Sropped to get a coffee for the driver as he was in desperate need!!
Well what an absolute joy of a coffee cakes restaurant pub brilliant rooms all upgraded in a place you would least expect.

The owners Husband Wife and Son who is much like a bear were the epitomy of hosts. What a blast we had with them for 2 hours on our unfortunate way to joburg to fly home.

We will be back and next time for an overnight which may turn into two......

Had a lovely experience at the coffee shop and worth going off the main road for. Delicious cakes and there was a nice fire going to warm us up from the rain. The owners were extremely friendly and great to chat to.

Ok so this I suppose is technically our local, so I don't know why I haven't rated it before. We live in Johannesburg but visit this area monthly if possible. Every time without fail we will pop in for a pint or 5 and grab a quick Saturday lunch or watch sport as we have no Electricity where we stay. Jed is a proper proprietor and is normally in attendance behind the bar. It is a real country pub with no airs or graces. Pool tables animals trophies on the wall and a huge fireplace for winter. Swinging cowboy doors allow the patrons to ride in on horseback(like yesterday!!) read the review by Financial Mail Food critic Justice Malala hanging on the wall(who also rated it)
Well done Jed & see you soon...
