Very special place with lots of character and style, very different...a bit like old Europe in Africa with beautiful views. Our stay was just too short - we would really have loved to stay at least another two days.

The style and decor of The Grand was exactly to our tastes - rustic in parts and opulent in others. The service was efficient yet unobtrusive. The bed ridiculously comfortable. The food at the restaurant was up to the usual Grand high standards. Peaceful, relaxing and inspiring.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in February and had a very relaxing stay following our safari in Sabi Sands. Whilst we were unlucky with the weather, we felt very pleased with our hotel choice. I must admit, I didn't quite know what to expect before arriving but everything about the hotel, its restaurant and its rooms... More

Not the usual hotel room, each one is different. A character all of its own in a great location with wonderful views, very nice. Glad we tried it and would certainly recommend. Free parking available.

This place has a quirky feel to it - with retro decor and antique furnishings. If that's not your scene then you won't like it here. The beds are a quite high so a step is provided for you to get on. Rooms feel very dark because the decor is predominantly dark reds, purples, grey and black. It's definitely not... More

The Grand Cafe is a breath of fresh air, and far removed from what most people expect of a typical hotel. It's innovative, unusual and fun, with staff who clearly enjoy working there, continuously smile, and who put customer service at the top of their agenda. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in a 'moodily' decorated room, with... More

What an amazing hotel. The ambience and attention to detail was by far the best we experienced on our trip along the Garden Route. The room was beautifully designed and so unique - they thought of everything and breakfasts were the best ever -with a fabulous view over the bay. Would highly recommend if you like something a bit different!

We recently stayed at this hotel in The Bath House, as part of our 40th Wedding Anniversary visit to South Africa. What an unusual and romantic place this proved to be, very different to any other hotel we have stayed in. Service was excellent and nothing too much trouble. We had our own private pool and courtyard, twin rolled topped... More
