And there's lots more to do ... feed a crocodile, visit the ancient cycads at Modjadji and the Kruger Park is only 80 minutes away .... so why not stop over for a few days and discover it all for yourself!!

This is the ideal terrain for mountain bikers (we have 2 bikes for hire) cross country runners and quad enthusiasts (bring your own.) You can walk down to the dam, hike the Rooikat Hiking Trail next door in the Agatha Forestry. Our mountain views are perfect for artists and photographers.

The communications prior to arrival were very good and the responses to questions were quick.
Granny Dots is a wonderful place to stay. It is in the mountains and therefore very peaceful and beautiful. We have unit 6 which was private and had a great view. The unit was clean and comfortable. Towels were replaced proactively and the unit was serviced daily. Rusks were topped out throughout our stay (they were yummy). The kitchen was well equipped.
Although we had self-catering we were grateful to be able to eat at the dinning area on evening. The chef makes the meal personal and cooked as ordered.
The staff are very friendly and polite and ready to assist at any time.
Thank you for a wonderful 5 day, relaxing holiday. We will be back.

It was a peaceful and relaxing experience. Wish we could have stayed longer! The hosts were friendly and they went the extra mile to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. The unit where we stayed was also very well equipped.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. Without knowing what to expect and with no referral; we decided to go with Granny Dots. What made us choose it? The images on the internet told a cute story and said exactly what we were looking for, and based on that we made our booking. The minute we drove into the road leading us there, the scenery and the drive into the mountain ascertained us of a choice well done. And arriving at Granny Dots with a delightful greeting & welcoming plus a tour by Estelle, made our weekend already. Granny Dots has this tranquil aura & the beautiful natural surroundings just melts your heart. The owner's Estelle and Helena are the most amazing hosts and they have managed to fill the place with not just beautiful decor, but their love for people and serving each and everyone of their guests just oozes through that place. There is not a single thing I can point at which disappointed me. All I can say is that you will need to go there to share in my experience of this amazing place. Thank you Estelle and Helena.

From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. Estelle welcomed us and gave a tour of the place, it was everything we had seen online and even more beautiful in plain sight. Without sounding overly expressive; Estelle & Helena have managed to make Granny Dots a place you want to go back to & also tell the whole world about. From the perfectly decorated rooms, to the hospitality, the food & the breathtaking location, we had a weekend we will never forget. Thank you Estelle & Helena. You will be seeing us again.

Absolutely amazing views, very very clean, great service and value for money, will be back next year for 5 years in a row, highly recommended and the fireplace in my room is what makes it so special in the winter months, a must stay if passing through, very friendly ladies always looking out for guests and even employees always ready to help out, very very happy and cant wait to go back next year.

Very privileged to be the first British visitors since Granny Dots was upgraded earlier this year. Fabulous stay, we chose a room which included full kitchen facilities, everything was top quality and Estelle couldn't have done more for us, she is a wonderful host. The view from the pool is just amazing. We will be back.

We stayed in this B&B already in 2016. We returned because it is the perfect spot to go to before you go into the Kruger park.
When we arrived we noticed a change. Granny Dot's is under new management! All the rooms are freshened up and equipped with new furniture.
We had the honor to be their first guests! To celebrate this we ate with the entire family and shared a lot of stories. Diner was great (traditional Bobotie) and breakfast was also very nice! We wish the new owners all the best and we are very confident about the future, We will come back for sure.
