What an incredible place to stay. We were welcomed with a fortified wine and then shown to our rooms. All the rooms were very spacious and luxurious. They included an magnificent bath in each. So decadent. The beds were huge and extremely comfortable. The food was to die for. A delicious 4 course meal. The chocolate mousse with a twist... More

The First night we arrived, we thought the castle is the perfect place for a horror story to unfold. The realism and detail of the castle had us convinced it is a 17th century castle. The experience is one of a kind, Manie was the perfect host. If there was any request out of the ordinary he would do his... More

The Castle is quirky and fascinating and Manie has spared no expense in furnishing it with antique furniture, some imported from the UK, and I did feel as though we were staying in a Stately Home in England. The art was amazing and the food was exquisite. Manie was the perfect host, charming, accommodating and interesting. It is probably the... More

If you haven't stayed at Flycatcher Castle yet, there is definitely something missing in your life. This is an experience that cannot be missed! To call it merely 5 star accommodation would be a sin. This experience is relaxation, entertainment and inspiration all rolled into a magnificent work of living art. I cannot fathom wanting to stay anywhere else in... More

This is a difficult place to review. Because whilst we had a fantastic stay and really enjoyed being in such an artistic space, it's important to say that it will not be to everybody's taste. If you are looking for an amazing experience, something a bit different to the mundane run-of-the-mill hotels and particularly if you enjoy sculpture, then I... More

The first question is, why stay in Graskop? The answer is that you are only a few minutes away from God's Window. From White River, you are 45 minutes away. All the other sights are closer to Graskop as well. But then the second question is, where would you stay in Graskop? An excellent answer is the Flycatcher Castle, if... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by Manie and Marco who offered us some sweet sherry. Manie was a gem when it came to suggesting places that we could visit in the surrounds of Graskop and beyond. He shared valuable information about the tourist areas. While at the Flycatcher Castle it felt as though we had travelled in time into a... More

The Flycatcher Castle is a gem which I am so thrilled my husband and I were able to experience. We stayed for 2 nights in January 2014 and it was by far one of the best experiences we both have had. We stayed in the Puccini Suite and it was gorgeous and tastefully decorated. The bed and linens are extremely... More

One of my best experiences. I enjoyed getting to know the artist, Manie Connoway. His passionate take to life, art & details are well displayed, along with some good humor, throughout the castle. The Ruby Room was amazing with a very interesting twist. (not for the fainted heart) The whole stay and experience reminded me to pay attention to what... More

We had a wonderful weekend at Flycatcher Castle . The hospitality was great as well as the ambiance created by Manie. The rooms are unbelievable and the food 5 star quality. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Would definitely recommend staying here when in Graskop area.
