Imagine the scenario - family of five (including three teenagers) arrive from London following the overnight flight to Jo'Burg. Really, really tired!! And then we are greeted by a driver from the Mount Grace who takes us on the hour long drive up to the Magaliesburg and the gem that is this hotel.
Where to start? The rooms are ace, the restaurant is superb but the buffet is (in the opinion of our growing 16 year old lad) better! They actually have a guided tour of the buffet for every new starter!! Free tea and cakes in the afternoon, the heated outdoor jacuzzi, the drawing room and study with the huge log fires, iced tea by the pool, friendly helpful courteous staff, meatballs on the bar, and - last but not least - toasted sandwiches served from under silver domes by no less than five waiters at once!!
Strongly recommend this as a 'wind-down' spot before going on to the rest of the country. If you feel a bit richer go to the Grace in Rosebank too - stunning~!!
