“Amazing view”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

On pur Way to Kruger we stayed one night at "Zur Alten Mine" and i wish we would have had more time to spent at this beautifull nature site.
Surrounded by big green hills lies these wooden chalets buildt for honeymooners and travellers who come to enjoy Walli and Rainers great hospitality.
To wake up to the amazing views with the mountains in the far distance, the local lake with drogs and the friendly dogs and walking down to breakfast of high german quality- could you ask for more.
The chalets are huge with a kitchen, a brand new bathroom and long hard to leave beds.
10 min drive to town - and it is quiet out here.

Room Tip: The honeymoon chalet has ist own veranda and a fantastik view

We visited in October when it was unseasonably cold and enjoyed the fireplace and dry wood and the hot water bottles . Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the region and what was worth while doing ( and what was not ) on rainy misty days .

A beautiful setting - the best in Graskop! Chalets are clean and modern with all the facilities you will need. Hosts, Rainer and Walli are friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay more comfortable. The breakfast is also very good value.

We stayed at Zur Alten Mine at the beginning of October 2012 in a two person log chalet and the honeymoon chalet.
The accomodation was everything we could have asked for; clean, spacious and in a beautiful setting. The honeymoon chalet in particular was fantastic.
The location was only a few minutes away from Graskop town by car and it was a great place to explore the Panorama route.
The owners Rainer and Walli were informative and friendly and the four dogs and on site paddock of goats were an added bonus! We would definitely stay there again when passing through Graskop.
The value for money is excellent and we would recommend anyone looking for accomodation in this area to choose Zur Alten Mine.
Thanks for a lovely stay!

Very relaxing environment, large and cosy rooms within nature. Very calm. Road to access a bit rocky but it worth it ! 4 nice dogs. Very good restaurant a few minutes by car advised by the host ("glass"). Thank you again for the stay

The reviews on TripAdvisor was the reason why we could not miss out on the opportunity to book at Zur alten Mine, and every single good comment about this place is spot on correct. You do not really know what you'll get once you arrive, but this place exceeded my expectations. We received a warm welcome and a tour of our chalet. This is a wonderful place to stay and even better value for money! My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon chalet and is was spectacular! The chalets are very well equipped, neat and very clean. You get fresh, home-made rusks every morning and a small bottle of sparking wine on arrival. The chalet has a fireplace, portable radio/CD player, hair dryer, enough towels, blankets, a fan, bar fridge, small stove and a braai with all the utensils. The location was perfect, about 5 km from central Graskop and on the route to Sabie. I wouldn't book anywhere else! We will be back! Thank you Rainer & Walli!
