We spent one night at Mistique Waters, wish we could have stayed longer! Right on the river, very peaceful, very clean and friendly owners. Room matched the pictures that we had seen advertised. Would love to come back during summer time to make full use of the balcony and pool!

Our room had a beautiful view of the river, with a small balcony. The room and bathroom was very clean. We also enjoyed the breakfast, which was freshly made and delicious. Would definitely stay here again!

Spent one night in rooms 2 and 3 which both overlook the street and Vaal River. The breakfast good. Rooms very clean. Would like to spend one or two nights more at Mysique Waters Guest House. The self-catering units look interesting. The artworks in all the rooms beautiful, particulary enjoyed the paintings in the breakfast room and Wisteria Room. Would... More

This is by far the best guest house in Parys! It's right on the river and within walking distance to the antique shops and the restaurants. The hospitality is absolutely amazing and the breakfast truly filling and tasty. We were in the White Orchid Room with a balcony...we watched the Sun go down. The room is spacious and the bathroom...

My husband and I visited Parys and booked at Mystic Waters for 2 nights, we had booked through an agent and they had allocated us a room overlooking the garden, which was very nice. After chatting to the owner at breakfast on our first morning (she wasn't there when we booked in) she suggested that she show us one of... More

Beautiful flat with attention to detail: arrived on a cold, wet night & the welcoming sherry was a lovely gesture. Lovely view of the river right across the street; safe parking; close to restaurants. Really can't fault this unit. The steep staircase might be a problem for some. Wish we could've stayed longer.

We made a last minute booking after doing a 450km road trip on the motorbikes. Mistique Waters was just what we needed. Loved the sound of the river. Beautifully decorated rooms located in a magical garden. Reminded me of hobbits and fairies. Breakfast the next morning was lovely with enough choice. Proper homestyle food. The 3 ladies who was preparing... More

Mistique Waters is situated on the banks of the Vaal River and close to the centre of town (Parys, Free State). We stayed in the self-catering unit (no. 1) with all the facilities needed for a wonderful stay. Safe parking, lounge with satellite TV, fully equipped kitchen, lovely en-suite bedroom (king size bed) and a balcony with a view to... More

Our cell group from church booked the guest house for a weekend away. The comfort lies in the fact that each couple has space to be private in their rooms but everyone shares the communal kitchen, verandah and braai area. Not all rooms are en-suite. The place is very neat and clean although rooms are somewhat cluttered, beds have good... More
