We stayed one night after the Panorama Route trip. We had a two bedroom chalet, which is cozy and clean with a full kitchen. The garden is neat and beautiful. We found it is of great value for money: A place so beautiful but the price is so low. PS: the cherry tomato in the garden is delicious!

Breakfast was yummy with some different things to try: homemade pretzels, game cold meats. I feel that it would be a very nice place to go in Winter, with the place...

We rented a chalet at Zur Alten Mine. We had a great welcome and stay. Everything was very clean and cosy. Location is just outside Graskop, very quiet and great to see the stars at night. The breakfast was also great and more than enough. I would recommend this.

We spent the night in the Honeymoon Cabin during our weekend tour of the Panorama Route. A great place to go and unplug. The cabin was very cosy and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Nestled in lush green gardens overlooking the pond. It's a beautiful and tranquil place and I would highly recommend Zur Alten Mine Guesthouse...

We stayed 2 nights in the Honeymoon Cabin and it was perfect. Comfortable room and bed, very peaceful sitting on the terrace and by the pond in the mornings and at night, and breakfast was excellent. Walli was also very helpful with recommendations for sightseeing in the area and eating. Highly recommend.
