“Luxury and wonderful”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

This is truelly a stop over. I had a "house" to myself consisting of a lounge and a seperate bathroom. There was a jacusi in with all the soft towels. The bedding was wonderful clean crisp and soft. The was a cuppucino machine in as well. The only part that was not perfect was that you have to park at a central place and with golf cars you are driven to your accomodation.
The views were lovely.
The food was very good and the staff helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: All rooms seems wonderful

I recently spent two nights at Mount Grace and had an amazing time. The room was spacious, beautiful, clean and comfortable. The staff were attentive and very helpful. I had several treatments at the spa and was very impressed with the quality of therapists and service. They were also extremely accommodating and allowed us to re-schedule our treatments several times. Another highlight was dinner at the Rambling Vine which unbelievably good. I would definitely recommend Mount Grace as a get away from Joburg and I’m certainly going to going back soon.

Tucked in at the foot of the hill side, this is a little piece of heaven with good food, super accommodation and friendly staff. The spa experience is great with massages that really were very good and relaxing.

We were welcomed with a really nice touch of fresh fruit and bubbly, as it was our anniversary. Our room was well appointed in the new brighter turquoises and pinks of the post-refurbishe Mount Grace with a small balcony with a view of the extensive garden and rooftops of other chalets. Loved being in the thatched hobbit houses - four completely separate en-suite rooms in each building.

We were very happy to be in the older part of the hotel as everything is in walking distance - took a golf cart to the spa though! Up quite a steep hill. Spa prices for all the full body treatments seemed slightly better value than similar elsewhere in this type of hotel in SA. Small treatments (manicures/pedicures) were a bit pricier than expected.

Loved the heated outdoor pool in the early morning and evening. Service at the pool was fine - regular circuits made by waiters. Once a waiter who seemed quite inexperienced asked us what we wanted to drink, after taking our order for a pina colada.

We were on an amazing velue 3-day package - which included all meals at Twist, the buffet restaurant. The buffet is of a very high standard and is watched over and refreshed constantly throughout the hours of service. We had planned to treat ourselves to dinner at the Rambling Vine, but the variety and quality at Twist was so good, we opted to take all our meals there. Nice touch - complimentary sparkling and still bottled water at all times - and a complimentary glass of local bubbly on Sundays at breakfast - good quality one too.

Very small quibble - South Africa is a country that suffers drought and water shortages. While there are good intentions to save water (you can request that beds are only made up rather than getting a full linen change daily; you are requested to show towels needing changing be left in the bath) - the housekeeping staff did not carry out these requests. They did full changes of bedlinen and towels each time - which definitely was not necessary.

Our Daughter got married recently and by her request, she wanted a very small, low-profile, discreet but memorable event. This is not an easy request to fill!!
After many weeks of ideas and debates, it was generally agreed that for our 17 person function, Mount Grace in Magaliesburg would probably fit the requirement. We made contact with Mount Grace and thereafter, the normal exchanges of telephone calls, emails and a couple of visits ensued to clarify arrangements.
Had the day gone off well we would have been very happy – all we wanted was for the plans to go smoothly. We certainly underestimated Mount Grace! The attention to detail and quality of service was nothing short of spectacular. In addition, the main meal, which was dinner, rates as one of the best we have ever experienced. It was amazing.
After any such event, the normal post mortem took place amongst those that were there – we tried very hard to find something to fault, but simply couldn’t!
The “can do” attitude that pervades the Mount Grace makes it really something special. It was indeed a memorable event.

We spent 2 nights just after Christmas at Mount Grace and had a truly fantastic experience. From the staff, to the facilities, to our amazing deluxe room over-looking the tree-tops to the superb food in the Rambling Vine - it all made for an unforgettable and magical experience. I will definately be coming here regularly from now on!
