Fodor's Expert Review Mount Grace Country House & Spa

Hekpoort, Magaliesberg, North-West, South Africa

This village-style bed-and-breakfast near Magaliesberg offers accommodations in a variety of delightful, scattered country-style buildings in a wide variety of accommodations categories. All have glorious views of the mountains, valley, and the landscaped gardens, and what distinguishes the room categories is more size, extra amenities, and location: all rooms share basic amenities, including free Wi-Fi, espresso makers, and large-screen LCD TVs. The "Mountain Village" offers the most luxurious lodging, with spacious rooms, sunken baths, heated towel bars, and fireplaces in the rooms; some have private plunge pools. For more privacy, stay at "Grace Village" accommodations farther down the mountain. The most reasonable lodgings are the "Thatchstone Village" rooms. The food is wholesome country fare with a Mediterranean influence, and the Mount Grace is famous for its Sunday lunches. The spa, located in a separate natural stone building, is an experience in itself.
