Great attention to detail in the furnishings, all the creature comforts provided and even some extras. the biscuits (which were topped up every day) were delicious.

Blyde River Canyon and surrounding sites are less than a hour away and it takes less than two hours to get to Sabi Sands or Kruger. If...

Untypical for South Africa, we were mighty surprised to receive the friendliness and quality of what we are used to in Germany / Switzerland / Italy (3 or 4 star hotels). Super friendly hosts, excellent accommodation (in terms of cleanliness, not to mention one of the nicest showers I have had in a long time), great breakfast buffet...we would definitely...

We enjoyed our stay at Zur Alten Mine. Although it was a short 1 night stay, our hosts, Walli and Rainer, pulled out the stops to ensure that we had a comfortable stay.

Really loved staying at zur alten mine. I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone and this wonderful guesthouse will definitely see me again! I really love the comfortable and warm, welcome feeling of the log cabins. Going to mis lighting up the hearth fire and lanterns while listening to the sweet music of the night

This was a very cute place and Walli and Rainer (and their dogs) were great hosts. There are picturesque short walks around the grounds and it is a very short drive to town and Blyde River Canyon. Highly recommended.

Lovely accommodation with lots of attention to homely detail. We had a very cosy log cabin with a wood burning fire and great views towards the mountains. The hosts were knowledgeable and friendly. Breakfasts were just right. Location is perfect for the local sights and only 5 minutes by car into the centre of Graskop. Yes it can get quite...
