Granny Mouse Country House & Spa

Country Retreat, The Midlands


Granny Mouse Country House and Spa is surrounded by natural splendor as it sits neatly at the foot of the Drakensberg Mountains. The gardens are filled with paths that lead guests all over the property, between the thatched-roofed buildings.

This quaint hotel is filled with homely charm and combines rural ambience with old world splendor. Guests can partake in a number of exciting activities near the hotel such as canopy tours, horse riding, golf, clay-pigeon shooting and quad biking. Of course, no visit to this zulu land would be complete without experiencing the rock art and other once in a lifetime sights hidden between the cracks of the Drakensberg mountain – a South African National Heritage Site. 


Guests can choose between rooms fitted with the finest luxuries or suites that boast private decks with sweeping views of the surrounding valleys. Each of the rooms has been individually decorated and designed with guests’ complete comfort in mind. 

Luxury rooms include a fireplace and corner baths – inviting guests to sit back and take in the view of the verdant hills that surround this home away from home hotel.


This elegant hotel offers its guests superior beauty and pampering treatments at the spa which features a jacuzzi, gym and steam room. Guests can also enjoy wine from the award winning wine cellar while lazing beside the pool and deck.

Those who love fishing can indulge in their passion at the hotel’s private river. Alternatively, delicious meals can be enjoyed at either the bistro or fine dining restaurant. To top it all off, this charming hotel also features a single malt whisky and cigar bar and lounge.
