|Mount Grace Country House|
GAUTENG JOHANNESBURG HOTELS
The Mount Grace Country House is an opulently appointed 4-star Country Hotel set in magnificent gardens and close to waterfalls, right in the Magaliesburg Mountains. The Mount Grace Country House is a romantic haven located only an hour's drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.
The Mount Grace Country House is a beautiful stone farmhouse with charming thatched bedrooms, a charming verandah and timber sundeck. Mount Grace undoubtedly offers the international traveller the best of South African rural life.
All of the hotel's bedrooms and the lavish Mountain Village suites are set amongst captivating gardens which have received high acclaim in the media. The latest addition to The Mount Grace is the 'Treetops Village', comprised of luxury stone guestrooms perched above a ravine which is dotted with exquisite indigenous vegetation and inhabited by prolific birdlife.
Outdoor activities at Mount Grace include bird watching, picnics, tennis, swimming, mountain biking and trout fishing. For the less energetic, relaxing around the pool, reading or listening to classical music CD's in the library are a great antidote to stress.
Another exciting outing is the tour to the fossil sites of Sterkfontein, known as the 'Cradle of Mankind', only 20 minutes from Mount Grace. Honoured as a World Heritage Site in 1999, this is one of the most important archaeological and palaeo-anthropological regions in the world.
The Mount Grace Country House regularly hosts classical music concerts in its acoustically designed theatre, with performers ranking among the best in South Africa.
These rooms are closest to the main hotel; they are the original part of the hotel and are therefore older and decorated in a more 'country style'. They are in close proximity to all amenities and facilities and overlook very our beautiful garden pathways.
These rooms are on either side of the pool and consist of 4 rooms per unit, two upstairs with thatched roofs and two below. They all have patios with lovely garden views. Their décor is warm and inviting and these rooms feel as if each room has been individually decorated. They are not too far from the main hotel, but tend to offer more privacy than the Thatchstone Village.
Comprises of Upper and Lower Mountain rooms which have recently been re-done to become part of our superior room type with Treetops. They are the most private of all our villages. These rooms have exceptional views of the gardens and in some instances the surrounding hills and Magaliesburg countryside.
Each unit is totally separate and consists of a spacious bedroom en suite with a separate shower as well as a sunken bath. All 14 rooms are uniform in décor and are equipped with mini bars, heated towel racks and other amenities. Although a leisurely walk from the hotel, they are favoured by many for their privacy.
The latest addition is the ultimate in luxury. Situated a fair distance from the hotel they nestle in a ravine filled with birdlife and forestry. The Treetops Village is accessible on foot or by golf carts.
There are 15 rooms in total each with a balcony/patio and a living area within the bedroom. The bathrooms are generously proportioned with heated floors and towel racks, a window the length of the bath with wooden blinds, separate shower, walk in dressing room, minibar and many other additional and unexpected luxuries are included. The décor is exquisitely stylish, yet in keeping with the relaxed country feel of the rest of Mount Grace.
