“Best place to stay for Panorama route into Kruger”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Daan's place could not be faulted. The rooms are lovely and come with the most amazing linen and quilts!
Ian, the owner gave us the best recommendation for dinner, and told us where to go for shopping etc.
All in all, he made our trip very easy and we felt right at home, even though we were a long way from home (UK).
Before we left the next day he took us through the places to stop on the PR, and the best way into the park. This was invaluable. It also shows the approach Ian takes and this was the reason we wanted to stay in a smaller place.
We are very glad we did!

This is definitely the place to stay enroute from Joburg to Kruger, and to see the Panorama Route.

Room Tip: All are great.

I had the pleasure of staying at Daans Place over the past weekend. What a pleasure it was. It was much more than I expected for the area. From their comfortable rooms, in-house entertainment system, comfortable clean rooms and soft clean beds and bedding to the best coffee in a thousand kilometers from the coffee shop and bar. I found the facilities to be great with free Wi-Fi, breakfast and light meals available at reasonable prices. Ian, the manager / owner, is very helpful and assist you in planning your stay and day trip to see this wonderful part of South Africa.

Iain the owner of Daan's place is warm and welcoming. He is very friendly but also unobtrusive. He serves great coffee and very reasonably priced breakfasts. We were very happy with the room allocated to us - the bed was comfortable, everything that we required for self catering was on hand and everything worked well. Very secure parking is also provided as well as local information, where to go and where to eat.
I would happily recommend Daan's place 110% to anyone visiting the Graskop area.
Tiny little nitpicks: a basket to put the multitude of pillows into, a suitcase rack, a small wardrobe, puffier pillows and lose the concertina door on the bathroom - it offers no privacy.

Very nice rooms, with great beds - very comfortable. The rooms are small, but have everything you need. Dont expect too much off the swimming pool.
Owner is very friendly and knows a lot about the surrounding area. Kids were happy with the Playstation and the movies probvided...

Great bed, secure parking, nice breakfast outside. Ian serves a real nice coffee and is always ready to give advice and help. Nice restaurants in the neighbourhood. A bit difficult for gps to find the place. Very good place to explore the waterfallroute and panoramaroute.

Thank you for the review, the 2 GPS map providers to South Africa have been notified of the problem and are aware of it, the correction should be on the next update

We didn't stay here but we had to use the internet late one night because my husband had to get a job application in while on vaca. Our B&B send us to Daan's and he was so helpful and friendly, he opened up the internet cafe just for us and didn't try to boot us out right away. I didn't see the rooms but what we saw was clean and secure!

We stayed four nights at Daan's Place and enjoyed every minute of the time we spent there. Ian was an excellent host, the rooms very clean and the breakfast superb. Ian was very helpful with advice on the best spots to visit and showed off his Google Map computer skills on more than one occasion!
Some fantastic sights within easy driving distance and secure parking when you return. We also enjoyed eating out at a number of restaurants in Graskop.
My wife says that Ian should include a set of drawers in the room but other than that a brilliant place to stay.
Thank you Ian and all your hardworking staff
