Recommended by a number of discerning friends for a stop over on the way to Mokala Game Reserve it fulfilled all our expectations. Beautiful garden, great food and lovely little pub. Our only complaint was the too hard bed. Our friends in one of the other cottages also complained about this. If this can be rectified I would give it... More

Thank you Cheryl and Blackie for the beautiful little cottage, for staying up late to await our arrival. We were so!!! Impressed with all the smaller details of a coffee press, honesty bar etc. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next time!

We have stayed at Prior Grange on a number of occasions on trips from Johannesburg to the Cape and Garden Route. Springfontein is about 150 kilometres from Bloemfontein and more that half way to Johannesburg from Knysna which makes it an ideal stopover for anyone going South to North. It is also far enough from Johannesburg to make the next... More

After a few years it was my second stay here but the same peaceful surroundings are a welcome relief after the run down from Joberg. Owners were away and notice on the door indicated which cottage had been allocated. Settled in then took the "trail" round the farm buildings and adjacent land. Although travelling solo the double Garden Cottage was... More

Spent one night here traveling back from the Eastern Cape to Gauteng. What a great place to break a journey. We were traveling with another couple and had the charming cottage overlooking the cricket field. It was beautifully fitted out and filled with cricketing memorabilia. A surprising highlight for me was an hour spent in the 'pub' which opens from... More

We drove back from Paradysstrand with our 2 children (aged 1 and 4yrs old) and looked forward to this popular farm guest house. On arrival the owners greeted us and immediately showed us to our cottage. The rooms were very clean and we soon enjoyed their swimming pool. The bar which opened for sundowners at 19:00 made our stay even... More

In the middle of nowhere there is a special and unique stop over place called Prior Grange.Friendly hosts who somehow ensure that you will break your journey here again and again. Try it! You will be very pleasantly surprised by the charm of this little gem just off the N1.

My sister and I were so lucky to stay over in this gem for the night between our long drive home. It really is such a charming, romantic setting. Clean, warm and tasteful interiors surrounded by a beautiful garden. We wish we could have stayed longer than one night! Definitely returning there sometime soon!

It seems that the further you travel from the city centre, the friendlier people become. Backed up with comfortable accommodation and good food, this is a stop worth making. Blackie and Cheryl are the perfect hosts.

We had such an amazing stay at Prior Grange en route to Kruger that we rescheduled our return trip to incorporate another night on our way home. Blackie and Sheryl are the most amazing hosts and went out of their way to see we were comfortable in every way. After drinks in the quaint loft Pub full of memorabilia we... More
