Friend and I were returning to Jo'burg, and wanted a cheap overnight stay. Enquired at the Tourist Info Office and was recommended Sheri's. Easy to find. Had a friendly welcome, and was told our Rondaval would be ready in half hour. Wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the accommodation was quite good. Two double beds, bedding was clean though...

I can't really give Sheri's lodge a proper review as we had a booking but didn't end up staying there. We had just driven to Graskop from the Kruger Park and arrived to find a party getting started by a few guests - one in particular - who was already 3/4 through a whisky bottle at 4.30pm yelling obscenities at...

Thank you Nedz85 for your review. It is unfortunate that other guests made you and your partner feel uncomfortable. It can happen that from time to time there are rowdy guests even more so over the holiday season - I am sure every establishment will have a story to tell. There is no way to tell what type of people... More

So, i was flying solo through SA, and don't really do the bookings of hotels that well. I ended up at Sheri's. To be honest, it was cheap, and I'm not even sure if the bedding was just washed so many times, or whether its just been on the bed for years. If you are looking for cheap accommodation and... More

Very spacious unit- perfect for larger groups. DS TV and wifi, friendly staff, outdoor BBQ, giant communal room in center of property, security on staff. Staying in a thatched roof rondavel felt very African. The only downfall was since it had recently rained there was a damp smell in the whole unit, and the bathroom smelled like cleaning chemicals.

It is a perfect place to stay in Graskop! Very friendly staff and excellent rooms (rondavels). Perfect for families and couples - and also for groups while they have a dormitory. Every rondavel has toilet, shower and kitchen. And Internet - with extender ;o)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Graskop is home to Sheri’s Lodge & Backpackers, it is a small forestry town on the edge of the escarpment. Originally owned and run by the late Rod Sheridan, who was once voted Australia’s most ‘eccentric’ tour guide. We invite you to come spend a night (or even a week) at our little piece of Africa. Sheri’s has 10 rondavels and offers a variety of accommodation options, from Backpackers dorms to the more private self-catering units. Whether you are looking for a quiet getaway or a group tour, we have something for you. We welcome both local and international travellers. After a long day of sightseeing (and there is plenty to see), come home to Sheri’s, put your feet up and enjoy an ice cold beer from our bar. Tea and coffee is also on hand for those chilly days. Connect with friends and family via our FREE Wifi and plan your activities for the next day with the help of our friendly staff. Enjoy a braai and a game of pool or a dip in our swimming pool (not Olympic sized by any means but big enough to cool you off), catch your favorite team in action on TV (Dstv) or cook up a storm. We have someone available 24/7 to help you, credit card facilities, secure onsite parking and clean sheets! Sheri’s is located near the centre of town and is within easy walking distance to all local amenities. There are a variety of ‘Things to Do’ in the surrounding areas – from breath taking views to the adrenaline pumping ‘Big Swing’. Graskop is often referred to as the gateway to the Panorama Route – just a short drive away is God’s Window, Wonder View, the Pinnacle, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Three Rondavels, not to mention the spectacular waterfalls. ... more   less
