For a backpacker I would give it a 4 and half star. But hot water is an issue, if the backpacker is fully booked and u want to bath around 8 in the morning , u r in for a very cold rude awakening. Please add a geyser to provide adequate hot water all hours of the day.

Arrived late September and Graskop was covered in dense fog. Unique accommodation, but surprisingly very quiet and warm. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Space for parking, kitchen/common area is huuuuuuuge and caters for large groups.

Get more people to clean the place and theres no privacy using the toilets that have no doors and there was no hot water in some of the rondavels and one of them had no proper locking mechanism. The beds are uncomfortable. But the hospitality was great

Hi Thulele. I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with your accommodations. As mentioned on arrival, I am at most a phone call away (and there is someone on the property at all times). There should have been proper locking mechanisms for all the units and hot water in all the rooms, and should there be a...

Friend and I were returning to Jo'burg, and wanted a cheap overnight stay. Enquired at the Tourist Info Office and was recommended Sheri's. Easy to find. Had a friendly welcome, and was told our Rondaval would be ready in half hour. Wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the accommodation was quite good. Two double beds, bedding was clean though...

I can't really give Sheri's lodge a proper review as we had a booking but didn't end up staying there. We had just driven to Graskop from the Kruger Park and arrived to find a party getting started by a few guests - one in particular - who was already 3/4 through a whisky bottle at 4.30pm yelling obscenities at...

Thank you Nedz85 for your review. It is unfortunate that other guests made you and your partner feel uncomfortable. It can happen that from time to time there are rowdy guests even more so over the holiday season - I am sure every establishment will have a story to tell. There is no way to tell what type of people...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Graskop is home to Sheri’s Lodge & Backpackers, it is a small forestry town on the edge of the escarpment. Originally owned and run by the late Rod Sheridan, who was once voted Australia’s most ‘eccentric’ tour guide. We invite you to come spend a night (or even a week) at our little piece of Africa. Sheri’s has 10 rondavels and offers a variety of accommodation options, from Backpackers dorms to the more private self-catering units. Whether you are looking for a quiet getaway or a group tour, we have something for you. We welcome both local and international travellers. After a long day of sightseeing (and there is plenty to see), come home to Sheri’s, put your feet up and enjoy an ice cold beer from our bar. Tea and coffee is also on hand for those chilly days. Connect with friends and family via our FREE Wifi and plan your activities for the next day with the help of our friendly staff. Enjoy a braai and a game of pool or a dip in our swimming pool (not Olympic sized by any means but big enough to cool you off), catch your favorite team in action on TV (Dstv) or cook up a storm. We have someone available 24/7 to help you, credit card facilities, secure onsite parking and clean sheets! Sheri’s is located near the centre of town and is within easy walking distance to all local amenities. There are a variety of ‘Things to Do’ in the surrounding areas – from breath taking views to the adrenaline pumping ‘Big Swing’. Graskop is often referred to as the gateway to the Panorama Route – just a short drive away is God’s Window, Wonder View, the Pinnacle, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Three Rondavels, not to mention the spectacular waterfalls. ... more   less
