Rooms were beautiful, comfortable and clean. Attention to detail in rooms 10/10
Having stayed there many years ago when it was owned bythe Poyntons my expectations were high. It has grown substantially from 5 to 34+ rooms and lost its personalised feel. We could have been at any 4* group/chain-hotel... Nothing wrong with it but I personally would not go back.
The new Deluxe suites are very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We also had dinner at the fine dining restaurant and Chef Shaun really put on a show and his cooking is outstanding. All the staff are very friendly from housekeeping to the waiters and managers, well done and will be back again.
Constructive perspective: For a fine dining restaurant that has such an impressive wine cellar I was disappointed with the lack of knowledge the waitresses had on wine etiquette. Our waitress could not make recommendations and did not even know how to open the bottle and made us both taste the wine before pouring so. The absence of a sommelier was surprising to say the least. The music and ambiance was distasteful, listening the stale music of Michael Bolton on repeat for 2 solid hours was painful and spoiled the romance. The décor was very outdated Biggie Best style. The restaurant was also very hot and stuffy with no windows or air-conditioning . The only thing that saved the evening was the delicious food. The place is very peaceful and the sound of staff conversing on two way radios which was blaring in the breakfast room was also not relaxing, perhaps they need to get ear pieces instead.
Rooms were excellent and so was the food at a fair price in the Bistro!
Beds were too short
Real class with old world charm and friendliness
The Spa it was wonderful.
The reception desk.Lacking skills and technology.

Upstairs location of restaurant
Innovative and tasty breakfasts; excellent menu (Bistro); Chef Sean's tips on what to order; all staff exceptionally pleasant and discreet; spa facilities; beautiful surroundings; spread out lounges for guests (no crowding); smoking lounge with TV; cleanliness and 'special touch' of bathroom (cup of oil and bath salts, variety of towels, flower "finishing touch", beautiful big bath; shower head!
Nothing really. The best, most relaxing 3 nights I've had in many, many years!
Great Service from the Staff and the food was excellent, the wine list is as good as they rave about themselves. The old style Bar had a great atmosphere. The fire place in the room is great and cosy when fired up on the cool nights
My favourite thing about Granny Mouse is the setting - the soothing sound of running water, the enchanting gardens, the busy birds, the views across the river to the hills. The rooms are discreet and private and immensely comfortable. The small attention to detail is enchanting - pansies on the face cloth, chocolate on the pillow, the lovely scents that pervade the rooms. The food was fabulous.The staff was delightful - unobtrusive but attentive. Congratulations! Marguerite Oosthuizen
Hi Lovely stay..Just that scones at breakfast were stale...But I tell the waitresses and they apologised profusely!! Regards Sandra Monaghan
Luxury touches which made the accommodation special
FOOD - dinner was excellent
Reception say we can have breakfast from 6h00 - we arrive early to see it is only from 7h00 - staff done very good to give us something to eat
For the price we paid for the room we expected more. R1800 for 0ne night is not cheap and although the room was pleasant enough it def did not warrant that rate.
Had a meal in their fine dining restaurant - it was exceptional
Check in was a bit hap-hazzard as receptionist was on the phone and we were left standing for a long while.
Well located for going to Michaelhouse. Staff in general where good.
Slow service in Bistro restaurant, staff seem to disappear. Staff fro Spa did not even bother to return our call. We waited in our room the whole afternoon for a call, this is time we could have rather spent going for a walk.
Rooms are well appointed.
The food was not of a very high standard. The menu was a bit too eclectic and not very co-herent. Some dishes did not represent what was stated in the menu's description. Also the food overall lacked seasoning.
The staff are atentive and will look after you. The country feel and style of the country house would make you go back. The choice between the two restuarants is a bonus and both serve excelent food.
The Scenery was beautiful . Breakfasts were amazing and the staff very friendly.
The some of the tiles in the bathroom were quite old . The towel heater in fhe bathroom had an exposed plug .
Thando at reception was great. Super friendly & professional. Rooms were great! Chef Shaun was fantastic, definitely go for the 5 course meal paired with wines. It was my mom's birthday, Chef Shaun made the most amazing complimentary birthday cake. To the Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, thank you for making this birthday weekend an unforgettable one.
We enjoyed the lovely many lounges in which you could relax either on your own or could choose to join other guest. The food was also very good.
Glad to say that we enjoyed everything.
I loved the welcoming character and homely ambience. All senses were soothed: the beauty of the surroundings rested the eyes; there was a freshness of gardens and welcoming aromas in the rooms; tranquility and the sounds of the countryside banished city stresses; comfort and warmth of the rooms gave a homely softness; and the tastes of a top/class kitchen added the icing on the cake!
I enjoyed my stay. The food and wine was excellent....
