Nice stay, our room was very comfortable although we should have asked if there were any rooms with extra-long beds, as for me at 1,96m the one in our room was a bit short. We had a bit of an issue with the wine list at dinner, as the vintages of the wines did not match the price list. The... More

Had a fabulous stay here and will most definitely be returning. Lovely accommodation, food and excellent Spa. Loved the Deluxe Room with its balcony overlooking the river. So relaxing. Very friendly and helpful staff and we were very impressed at how well maintained everything is, especially the beautiful gardens.

This was my second stay at Granny Mouse and in some ways, even better than the first. The layout of the grounds ensures privacy and the necessary strolls to and from the restaurant / lounges provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy the exquisite gardens and plant life. The new suites with their glass 'walls' in the lounge and bath... More

We had a wonderful stay at Granny Mouse Country House. It's nestled in the Midlands Meander with a view of green rolling hills and the river in the valley. You really feel like you're in a luxurious country house. The spa treatments were fantastic, the food as well. My favourite part was having afternoon tea and scones in one of... More

Although we arrived around 15H00 and departed the next morning, it was quite a pleasant stay. Service was prompt an our food was excellent (upstairs restaurant). Friendly and efficient service. In my opinion the pricetag for 2 people for 1 night, is a bit high. Multiplied by 7 nights, we would pay the same in Mauritius, for example.

Cool South African rural atmosphere in a very beautiful setting. Another image of South Africa. Food is excellent. Service can be better. It is very authentic. Congratulation to the people who built this hotel!!

I have stayed at several of the upmarket resorts in the Midlands - Granny Mouse is trying but just isn't there just yet. The new luxury suites along the river were really well done. My main disappointment was the food and the service. We sat down for afternoon coffee and it took absolutely forever to get service. There was no... More

Our overnight stay in a deluxe suite was excellent. The suite was very comfortable and spacious. All the staff we dealt with were attentive and helpful. The ambience in the fine diningroom was ''stiff''. The quality of the food and wine was excellent, although the staff should know that a food and wine pairing doesn't mean a tasting portion of...

It was our fourth visit to Granny Mouse, the previous three visits had been fantastic so we wanted to stay again for one night on our way to another destination.We arrived to the same majestic views, lush gardens and unique beauty that only the Natal Midlands has to offer. We were sad that it was very different to the welcoming... More

Our second stay at this hotel was as good as our first. The rooms are cosy and comfortable from the bathrobes and slippers to the tea light candles. Just did not enjoy the Bistro menu this time round. Managers personally involved in guest satisfaction. Will most definitely return.
