“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

My husband and I had the most romantic and wonderful 20th wedding anniversary at Mount Grace. Cindy from the Spa had ensured that our treatments were to perfection, our room was breathtaking and the buffet dinner was out of this world. The staff are absolutely happy and committed to assisting their guests. I am already planning a ladies weekend. If you want the best, my husband and I strongly suggest Mount Grace. It is no doubt in a class of its own.

Room Tip: Definately the Villa.

We enjoyed every moment we spent at the hotel. We would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to come and lazy away the weekend. The ambience inthe pool area is relaxing while listening to the call of birds. Being a birder, would like to advice that you train one of your staff members as a guide.

We needed a weekend away but didn't want to venture too far from Johannesburg. This is the perfect find! We were upgraded to a deluxe room, which is just lovely. Some of the rooms are "new" and I recommend when booking making sure you are in the new section - think this is the deluxe / luxury rooms. The garden rooms are right by the pools and basically look out onto the common garden so there is not too much privacy unless you close the doors and curtains. Food and service has been lovely, offering both a buffet as well as gourmet restaurant. A lot of the rates include dinner and breakfast - if you don't want to have the buffet dinner, they let you use the buffet credit towards the a la carte restaurant menu, which is really a great way to incentives guests to try both. Walks, tennis and spa available as well as many other venues to visit in Magaliesburg. A really lovely relaxing rejuvenating weekend away.

Room Tip: Try get a rate for a deluxe room or luxury suite. If not, ask for a quiet room NOT FACING the garden...

I was travelling on business and staff did as much as they could to make our stay pleasant. The room was wonderfully quiet and the bed was fabulously comfortable! The conference facility offered all that was necessary. My only gripe was that the carvery dinner offered a poor variety of mostly quite fatty food. The breakfast was wonderful and the lunch offered good variety, although the same menu was offered two days running.

Easy driving distance from Jhb, a romantic setting with tree lined roads the Spa was amazing with friendly and welcoming staff always wanting you to feel relaxed with a wide range of treatments (have to go back to try some more).
The room (suite) was amazing with a heated pool and its simplistic elegance that allows you to relax and take the time out one needs. Mount Grace has a spectacular views and is pure relaxation.
Food wow with Chef Franc Lubbe at The Rambling Vine was a new experience of flavours cooked excellently. Opened my taste buds to new and wonderful fun.
