We loved the quirkiness as it was completely different to any of the other hotels that we had chosen. Loved the double baths, no issues with the temperature of the water (it was boiling!) We stayed for three nights...

Wow, what a refreshing change this hotel was! The decor and design of the bedroom was like a French boudoir ( a huge bed 4ft off the floor). Some would say it's to dark, but for us it was very stylish and a bit different? The dinning room and terrace had a beautiful uninterrupted view over the bay- stunning!! Service...

Grand Africa certainly understands the meaning of customer service. I walked in to a historical setting and a very friendly reception desk. I was greeted immediately and shown my room. The room was equipped with accents of Victorian style and elegance with modern amenities tastefully represented throughout the space. The view was breathtaking from the mini balcony situated just above...

Spent an idyllic evening on the patio by the fire during our honeymoon. Being winter season we had the entire restaurant to ourselves and the friendly little cat. Loved the candlelit decor, gorgeous patio views, and the frangrant Grand Rose cocktail.
