Reviews from their previous guests
“My wife and I hiked the nearby Rooikat trail and got a little bit lost so we ended up doing 32km for the day. Quite an adventure (we are both over 60) but no regrets. Granny Dots prepared a lovely take-away breakfast for us and this sustained us for the whole day until 6PM when we eventually got back to our car at the trail head,” wrote DaanMarais their TripAdvisor page.
Michael L added; “Lovely two night stay at Granny Dots, very comfortable clean room with superb views of the mountains. Food was good and Monet the manageress was very friendly and helpful in advising us where to go and what to do. Definitely recommend a stay there.”
