This castle guest house is the perfect holiday get away with that mid evil feeling, with its design and antique furniture and atmosphere that brings this vision to live, At night the signature misty aura of Graskop creeps in in this castles ground giving it an even more ghostly a-lore. I would recommend this accommodation to any one that would... More

What an awesome experience this was. We were fortunate to stay in the Castle on our way back to Johannesburg coming from the Kruger National Park. This stunning made it accessible to God's Window, Three Rondawels and the various falls in the area. Manie treated us like Royalty and the food was exquisite.As a family this was a highlight and...

So happy we listened to the other recommendations on Trip Advisor - what a gorgeously unique venue! Our room (The Verdi) was beautifully furnished with genuine antiques. Stunning views over the garden. Super comfy bed too. We were lucky to see the other rooms too, and they're all equally as sumptuously furnished. The stand out for something really different is...

The people make the place. Mannie and Jack are amazing hosts and cannot do enough for you. Second best would be the 5 star food, I wanted all their receipes. Third on my favourites list would be the log fire dinners and ambiance in the castle. We will definitely visit again...we loved it here and was sad to leave new... More

When we arrived at the Castle it felt like I had known Manie all my life, He made me and my wife feel at home with a lovely glass of Jerepico and a bit of information about the unique and wonderful castle with amazing furniture and wonderful art pieces, We stayed in the Ruby Royle suite and loved every minute...

prepare to engage the owners, the better you get to know them the more interesting your stay becomes, a home away home with a few hidden yet very easy blushing surprises. Food which can easily be a winner on Masterchef or Come Dine with Me but will arouse your taste buds to the extreme. Serenity is the name of the... More

The entire castle is uniquely decorated, the art is inspiring and the food in mind blowing. The owner went out of his way to make us feel like honored friends, and not just more guests in a hotel. It was relaxing and feels like you are in another era entirely. Closer to home was the feeling of a King's Court... More

It was by pure chance I learnt that the castle existed when I started to plan our latest trip (a wonderful memory by now). We used the Flycatcher Castle as our base and went traveling to nearby sites and towns. The stay and the experience was all very worthwhile. Manie goes to much lengths to ensure that guests are comfortable... More

The castle,food and all the art are clearly a labor of love. The owner takes special care in making guests feel warm and welcome and caters to their every need. We met a lovely Australian family at dinner,and left flycatcher castle reluctantly, feeling part of a family. Highly recommended
