Average but acceptable fish and chips at the Bistro was accompanied by stone cold minted mushy peas, not very pleasant on a cold winter evening. Both breakfasts were quite odd- Homemade French Toast was deep fried and fatty, the Open Flapjack was a small spongecake-like object. While our room was charming and we enjoyed the cosy lounges on offer, my... More

We only spent one night at Granny Mouse and will definitely be back. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good. The location is also in a good spot if you are touring the Midland. The room also had a fireplace which made it very cosy.

It was quite cold when we arrived in Balgowan, but we were warmly welcomed by friendly staff. There are fireplaces in almost every living space as well as the restaurants and we always felt warm and cosy. We stayed in a lovely Deluxe River Suite, decorated beautifully and with a fireplace that was packed with wood every day. The bathroom... More

We took a tour group to Granny Mouses Country House and could not have been happier.. Our room was splendid with a view you could only dream off. The staff were superb and could not do more for you.. The best thing was also seeing the price of the food and drink.. so nice to go to a place where... More

We were a group of parents staying to watch a hockey tournament at Michealhouse. We found it to have been a wonderful choice. From champagne on arrival to electric blankets on the beds, there wasn't anything more I could have wanted! The food was fabulous - we are still talking about the mushroom sauce- and well priced. It was cold... More

After 2 nights at Granny Mouse we would have loved to have stayed longer. The rooms were terrific, spacious and cosy. On arrival tea and scones were waiting for us while our luggage was taken to the rooms. One person of our group wasn't on the room list but that was sorted out in a second. Loved the fire place...

The true test of an outstanding hotel (although this place is far more than a mere hotel) is how the team cope with irregular requests and with the problems that arise sometimes (even if they are minor and petty). On both of these measures the staff at Granny Mouse passed with flying colors.!! I have no hesitation in recommending this... More

Beautifully decorated, good service and great food. Well positioned for travelers. Being a smaller Hotel it gives personal service. The Spa is an excellent addition to services offered and the wedding chapel is quaint with good views.

Sometimes, what is more important than deadlines and meetings, is rest. This is exactly what I found when I arrived at Granny Mouse Country House & Spa earlier in July. I’m welcomed by fire places roaring inside, fountains flowing outside and monkeys playing in the overgrown and rustic gardens. “Welcome Home”. My suite is a deluxe suite with views of... More
