Granny Mouse Country House and Spa Stayed 29th of August 105 to 30th August 2015. We love to travel locally through our province, normally the North and South coast, so this was our first official stay in the Midlands. Thank you to Granny mouse for accommodating us, our stay for our 10 year anniversary was wonderful. We stayed in Room... More

We had to phone credit card company to prove we had paid. Make sure you take copy of your credit card statement as they do not send you... More

My husband and I returned to Granny Mouse exactly a year later for a pre-wedding anniversary getaway. Once again we were warmly greeted on our arrival by the General Manager Sean Granger, who remembered us from last year’s visit. We were lucky to be able to taste both the old and new Bistro menus, as the new menu was launched... More

We spent a wonderful long weekend at Granny Mouse. Having a fireplace in the room is a real plus on cold evenings. Friendly staff and good service. Requests were attended to immediately. Well placed for exploring the Midlands Meander and the spa is a wonderful place to relax.

My wife and I last visited this wonderful establishment some 24 years ago and what changes have occurred all of which are for the better. We were greeted very warmly on arrival and offered a glass of champagne. Before being taken to our suite we had a look around and ended in the bar where we finished our drinks. Our... More

Granny Mouse is the perfect place to base yourself if you are exploring the 'Midlands' region of KwaZulu Natal. Beautiful grounds and views. Spacious rooms with a log burner in the right season and free access to some parts of the Spa (steam room & jacuzzi) which was great after a days sightseeing. Lots to see and do in the... More

We have stayed at granny mouse a few times now and we have never been disappointed in choosing them for our accommodation. I give them a 5 star rating for everything. You will never want to stay anywhere else once you've been at granny mouse!!

Not so long ago I reviewed a place just down the road from Granny Mouse and in hindsight I was probably a bit harsh because I was comparing it to Granny Mouse and perhaps not rating it for what it was. In truth, there is very little in the midlands to compare to Granny Mouse and I don't know why... More
