We rented a chalet at Zur Alten Mine. We had a great welcome and stay. Everything was very clean and cosy. Location is just outside Graskop, very quiet and great to see the stars at night. The breakfast was also great and more than enough. I would recommend this.

We spent the night in the Honeymoon Cabin during our weekend tour of the Panorama Route. A great place to go and unplug. The cabin was very cosy and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Nestled in lush green gardens overlooking the pond. It's a beautiful and tranquil place and I would highly recommend Zur Alten Mine Guesthouse...

We stayed 2 nights in the Honeymoon Cabin and it was perfect. Comfortable room and bed, very peaceful sitting on the terrace and by the pond in the mornings and at night, and breakfast was excellent. Walli was also very helpful with recommendations for sightseeing in the area and eating. Highly recommend.

Zur Alten mine has large wooden houses with all beautiful view and a lot of privacy. On the terrain are some nice short trails. Owner is very helpful and has a lot of tips for trips and restaurants. Breakfast was real German with a lot of different sausages (kudu, impala!) and really good! We would definitely recommend this place!

The welcome was very nice and warm. Directly helped us with organizing dinner, as we arrived a bit late in the afternoon. Perfect stay if you want to do the panorama route! The houses have fireplaces and for the cold days there are electric blankets as well. As we were on honeymoon we also got a bottle of wine and...
