Granny Mouse Country House & Spa

Old Main Rd, Balgowan, KZN


Granny Mouse Country House & Spa is as quaint as its name implies. Old-world charm, embedded in the foundations of the hotel, complements the rural ambience and modern comforts. This elegant hotel with restaurants and spa is in the picturesque KwaZulu-Natal Midlands at the foothills of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg, one of South Africa's world heritage sites. Here we offer country hospitality and homely accommodation a few kilometres from the N3 highway.


Fine Dining
The Eaves Restaurant is the new fine dining restaurant hidden in the eaves above the Bistro. Proving to be a hit with our guests we still don't know whether the private dining area for romantic dinners, a table in the intimate dining room or the deck overlooking the Caversham Valley is the favourite place to enjoy our award winning menu. An independant guest review was posted on the Eat Out website in November 2010.

At Granny Mouse Country House & Spa our focus is on personalised yet discreet hospitality where guests enjoy quality service and a world-class, contemporary South African menu. Ingredients, sourced from local suppliers, are farm fresh and organic, where possible.
