We stayed for two nights at Thaba Tsweni in August. During our stay, we drove around the Panoramic Route as well as hiked around Blyde area. Coming "home" to this self-catering hotel was a definite highlight as we were able to braai and make a couple favourite dishes. Not only is it a great place, the owners are very helpful and friendly. When one of us was cooking and the other needed some butter to make banana bread, the owners went above and beyond and lent us butter. What a great place. We really felt home, far away from home.

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms towards the end so you have an open view of the scenery

Thaba Tsweni is not a hotel, per se. It is a series of self-catering "apartments" very conveniently located just north of Graskop. Signs clearly mark the way.

PROS
1. Units are clean and decorated in a "safari" theme.
2. The property is rural, and secure.
3. They not only provide a fireplace, but a box full of wood (including kindling). This was a huge plus for us since it was winter time and the higher altitude here made it quite cold.
4. Breakfast is superb! Lots of variety.
5. Very convenient to the Panorama Route.

CONS
1. At night, the gate is closed and you have to call a certain number to get in. I only had my USA cell phone and was very glad it actually worked there (probably at a very high per-minute cost). If it hadn't worked, I can't imagine how we would have gotten in!
2. Not many electrical outlets, and no adaptors. So foreigners - be sure to bring your own.
3. Once we arrived and were shown to our units, we discovered that we needed something in the units. The ladies went over to the house and pushed the button marked "push for service". They could hear the bell ringing inside each time they pushed it, but no response. We assumed the owners were in another part of the house and couldn't hear....
4. We used this place as an overnight stop. As such, it worked fine. However, it seems to be actually more of a family-oriented vacation rental place.

We stayed in Thaba Tsweni based on the Trip Advisor reviews and thankfully it was everything it was described as. We have two young kids and only had only one night to explore the area. The owner was a delight from the minute we arrived early that morning. Having only one day(and it was a cloudy start) he set us on the right route in order to make the most of our time and pack in as much of the sights as possible. He was very informative and knowledgeable about the area which is always a wonderful asset when your a 'blow in'! Pottering around the very large garden area was a friendly labrador which the kids loved & the trampoline kept them occupied and out in wonderful mountain fresh air! Accommodation wise, we were given the very large chalet in the front which was fantastic space wise, had all the basics and was comfortable. TV didn't work, but how sad would we be if that was a problem!! It was unfortunately an extremely cold weekend which didn't go down well initially when we arrived back that evening. However.............a box of firewood and lighters awaited us and after lighting up the wonderful stove, the entire sitting room and beyond was a haven of warmth.The chalet turned into cosy comfy cabin that left us with wonderful memories of this beautiful part of Sth Africa.

I was very pleased with our selection of Thaba Tsweni. We used it as a stopover between Kruger and Jberg to break up the trip and spend the day at the canyon. We were very surprised. Although I'm not sure what they mean when they call it 'lodge and safari's'. It was every bit a suite hotel with a large bedroom, a sitting room, porch, kitchen and utensiles. There was no restuarant, so a car is a must, but there was ample parking, and it is only 5 minutes from town. It fit our needs perfectly. Friendly, clean, and large accomodations at a VERY REASONABLE price made this the perfect one night stay. I would highly recommend a stay here.
