Perfectly positioned to explore the panorama route from. What stood out was the evenings spent in the beautiful garden, chatting with newly made friends over a glass of wine, watching the stars late into the night, and the meals - manie was so thoughtful in his execution of perfect 4 course dinners, adapted to my vegetarian diet- some of the...

Had a lot of fun with friends from the UK at Flycatcher Castle. It overwhelms at first but we in joyed the quirkiness of the place. You keep seeing new things and noticing different parts of the castle. The food was a work of art and delicious. I think the owner can read his guests well as he let us... More

Flycatcher Castle is the work of artistic genius. To stay at Flycatcher is to experience that genius. I marvelled in amazement that sleepy, beautiful, conservative, Graskop has found itself containing such an artist in residence. I hope the locals accept and celebrates his contribution to their town. Although I'm sure Flycatcher, and owner Manie, will divide opinions quite strongly. Some... More

Flycatcher Castle was everything we expected it to be. We felt and were treated like royalty. From the spacious Mozart room we had a beautiful view over the mountains and the plantations. The food was excellent. We can not wait to visit Flycatcher castle again!

My fiancé, fur-babies and I stayed at Flycatcher Castle for 3 nights and 4 days. Our stay could not have been more perfect. The time leading up to our stay I researched everything about the castle. Every so often leading up to our stay we would look at pictures on the website and Internet, only increasing our anticipation and excitement.... More

Little bit hesitant about the "castle - gimmick" I agreed to spend our first evening at the Flycatcher Castle. The Flycatcher was an awesome experience. We were warmly welcomed into the castle. Jaw dropping decor and art awaits you as you walk through the different rooms in the castle. We stayed in the Royal Ruby Room, which maybe not for... More

FCC has a unique, intriguing, unusual, mystical atmosphere about it. Owner, Manie and his beautiful Border Collie "Flynn" came to greet us and made us immediately welcome and comfortable. The garden is typical castle style with lots of color and is relaxing with lovely bird life. This is certainly a place for people who appreciate art and finer detail as... More
