The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great for the Blyde River Canyon. Food was the best we had while in South Africa. Don't hesitate to book this hotel.
After a long tedious drive on a path full of road-works, we were met at reception by one of the rudest staff members ever encountered, the gentleman on duty cursed us for arriving slightly later than scheduled and offered no help with the luggage at all. His attitude as rotten as his lack of hospitality set the tone to an unsavory stay. The room was quirky and adequately equipped for our short stay, mind you - as part of the "scooby-doo" experience, one can expect creaky floorboards and paper-thin walls amongst other peculiarities that make for a unique experience. The following day, the hot-water ran dry but this was quickly addressed. Decor is awesome and quirky throughout the hotel, minus the crappy staff. Parking is not the best as it is uncovered and outside, minor issue. We skipped breakfast due to the nature of the staff, however had a gander at what was on offer - pretty basic but should suit most transient travelers. Absolutely disappointed, I unfortunately did not feel this hotel was value for money due to the horrendous nature and attitude of the staff as well as considering the rate is based on per person, per night and not simply per night. Bonus: Harrie's pancakes is next door to the hotel…
My husband enjoyed her birthday to the best, the hotel staff made it possible. They felt at home, warmly welcomed, taken good care of. The food was excellent, the rooms were clean, they arrived late but they were taken care of
We recently spent two nights at the Graskop Hotel. We had an excellent stay. Our garden suite was simple but attractive and comfortable. The hotel is well situated in central Graskop. Covid measures were scrupulously adhered to. Many of the rooms are decorated with contemporary South African art and Edward, the manager, kindly gave us a very informative tour of the rooms and the adjacent gallery. We chose to eat our evening meals in the hotel restaurant and we were not disappointed. Peter, the chef, produced delicious home style food each evening. Despite the limited menu (presumably as a result of the pandemic), we were presented with new and interesting choices each evening. A perfect place to stay in Graskop.
We enjoyed a 3-night stay in a room that looked out into a garden; it was beautifully quiet and comfortable. Service was good, the art work is interesting and unusual and Graskop hotel is well situated for exploring the region and its landscape.
