What a fantastic place! The location is situated perfectly for sightseeing and the staff were full of helpful recommendations and tips. The accomodation is spacious and clean and the cafe/pub with both wi-fi & desktop computers was a terrific addition. I guarantee you will feel at home here and want to return time and time again for the friendly chat and comfortable atmosphere.

After having stayed in a couple of average places in South Africa, my wife and I were overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of the staff at Daan's. They couldn't do enough for us during our stay, and the quality of the accomodation was equally impressive. Daan's has an internet cafe on-site, and it is really more like someone's front room. The whole atmosphere of Daan's is one of comfort and friendliness. And the coffee ... OMG! it's wonderful. The best you'll find anywhere close, I guarantee it!
I would really recommend anyone to stay a while at Daan's, you couldn't go wrong. And it is ideally placed for heading out on trips around the local sights.
Five stars *****

Daan´s Place is a totally great place to stay at. We really enjoyed staying there. The owner of the place is such a nice guy and takes time to show the visitors what they can do in this area. The area is perfect to stay for nice daytrips, also to Kruger np! The rooms are nice, the bed is 1a++++, heating blanket as well, heating in the room. They got ps3 and wifi, as well a rooms with computers, breakfast is really nice. Yeah, and as well... The price for the night is totally fair!! No better place you can go in this area!!!

We stayed at Daans place for our first two nights in South Africa. And the least I can say is we really found a place like home! Daan is a great host, always providing good advices and very efficient. The room was cosy, big and very clean. The breakfast is highly recommended, awesome and cheap! Wi-Fi was a bit tricky, but it didn't matter... Plus you can use computers in the common room. Outstanding value for money, will definetly stay there again if I want to go back to lovely Graskop!

Located centrally in the small city of Graskop (in contrast to many other accomodations along the Panorama route).
Although not very luxurious, nothing really to complain about: WLAN, streamable movies, huge bed, self-catering area (=kitchen), sympathetic owner, clean rooms.

This is a clean and comfortable place to stay while you explore the Panorama region. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and take lots of time to give help and advice. The breakfast is excellent, and the rooms quite exceptional for the price.

Daan is an extremely nice host who will gladly help you with planning your route and advising you about the nearby attractions. The rooms are very neat and cosy. The most comfortable and spacious bed I had in a long time while traveling and most needed after the long drive from Joburg. There is an internet cafe and safe parking within the premises. AND really good coffee to help you getting up and going :)
We really enjoyed staying at Daan's Place and I can only recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good starting point before setting out to see the scenic wonders of Mpumalanga such as God's Window, the spectacular Bourke's Luck Potholes as well as Lisbon Falls, Berlin Falls.
Thanks for helping us to perfect start to our trip!
