Graskop Hotel is the best place to stay when you are visiting the Blyde River Canyon! The rooms are clean and nicely decorated (each one has a diferent design) and the beds are soooo comfortable! The restaurant is great and the living room is cousy and very charming. Also a very good price/quality relationship! Loved it!

This place is an art gallery. Every single piece all around the place is art.
Very confortable and warm rooms. The best are the garden rooms. Breakfast excellent. Pour internet connection.
Weird situation: it was a could winter night, and the lobby are filled with a few nice fireplaces ready to go. Only one was on fire, at the bar with many people around. We asked the employee to start the fire in another one on the lobby and he said: No! you must seat near the one at the bar....

Room Tip: The best are the garden rooms

The hotel is quite cosy considering Graskop is a small town with limited accommodation. We arrived quite early in the day and we were not allowed to check in as the rooms were still being cleaned.
Hotel location is very central and great, most main attractions: Bourkes Potholes, Grand River Canyon, Gods window, restuarant famous for the best pancakes in town,a few of the waterfalls in Mpumamalanga are withing 50km from the hotel.
The hotel restuarant is also not bad as there is limited variety within the town for food.
The rooms are decent, clean and comfortable.
We drove to the hotel, 5hour drive from Johannesburg. The nearest airport is in Nelspruit, which is roughly another 2hour drive to Graskop.

A charming family hotel, and an artistic dream, fully furnished in original art-deco. Personally prepared food.

This is a really unique little art hotel--literally, the main rooms have each been designed by a different artist, and the lobby and dining rooms are essentially art galleries. The rooms are clean, the location is terrific (right on the main street), they use high quality linens, and Graskop is a wonderful place to stay on your way into or out of Kruger Park if you want to see the sights of the Panorama Route (which is well worth it!). There is also a hotel dog and cat, which are quite friendly (and unobtrusive), but who give a real homey feeling to the place.

The Graskop Hotel is an intriguing and attractive boutique hotel that we highly recommend to visitors who want something different. It is like staying in an art gallery. The dining room is stunning with its African art and modern design and the other common rooms are equally interesting. We stayed in the hotel and found our room extremely attractive and comfortable. It certainly beats the plastic environment of most big, 5 star hotels. Each room has its own special design and designer and is unique and, sometimes, surprising. If you are looking for luxury bathrooms and gadgets in your room this is not the hotel for you. If art and design are something you enjoy, then this is hotel is option. The breakfasts were first rate with a wide range of choice in a buffet AND a hot cooked breakfast option. The location - Graskop - is an excellent place from which to explore the Blyde River area and its magnificent scenery. The town itself is full of art galleries and craft shops.
