Friendly, helpful, professional staff. Great Spa. Beautiful setting with tranquil views and easy access to places of interest along... More

This is one of my fav hotels in Natal, I dont get here that often but when I do its a stop to relax, unwind and get things into perspective. The staff are so friendly, all of them and the rooms are luxurious and spacious. The food is excellent and the setting stunning. I could not recommend this hotel more.

The Staff where all very polite and welcoming. The room was spotless and well decorated. However the mattress sloped badly on one side. The quality and standard of the food was well below what I knew from past visits. My Lamb chops where very fatty, and appeared and tasted more boiled than fried/grilled. There was no seasoning or flavour to... More

Arrived late at night a few minutes before the reception closed, was greeted with a friendly "Hello" and was escorted to my room. I found the suite with all the amenities one could hope for plus a little extra, I found the room was clean and quite aesthetically pleasing. The next morning went to breakfast and spotted the beautiful view... More

We spend one night at Granny Mouse on our way to Sani Pass. The rooms are spacious - lots of attention to detail even in the bathroom filled with fragrant products. Fine linen. Food excellent! Service on patio and at reception not up to standard. Wifi connection VERY weak!

Granny mouse is a very special place. It was our first here and we have been completely bowled over with everything, the food, the rooms, the view, the spa, and the friendliness of the staff. We will be back again and this time for a little longer.

We recently went to the midlands for a weekend. What a great little place. They made exceptions for our week old maltese puppy to stay in the room and generally went out of their way. food was fantastic and rooms were great especially the fireplace! We loved the chapel, what a wedding venue it would be!

We were met with a warm welcome and the service remained excellent for the duration of our stay. Our supper in The Bistro restaurant was superlative. The attention to detail in the rooms encompassed underfloor heating in the bathroom, heated towel rails and graet river view. All in all a most pleasant stay.
