As part of the African Pride Autograph Collection and in keeping with the tradition of themed hotels, Mount Grace has soothing sweeps of lavender bushes in long walkways down which guests can stroll. It’s all about inviting the surrounding nature in. They’ve even named their spa Bush Spa, which offers nature-inspired treatments.
Added to this is the hotel’s three restaurants to provide for all your nibbly (or ravenously hungry) needs.
Spoil yourself at the award-winning Rambling Vine restaurant, which features quarterly seasonal menus and an award winning wine list. The Rambling Vine has achieved one of the highest marks ever for a South African restaurant in the history of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, was voted one of the Best Fine Dining Restaurants in South Africa by Eat Out in 2012 and its wine list has won a Diners Club Diamond award three years in a row. You’ll need to book in advance for this one!

There’s a new chef in town
Speaking of food, Mount Grace Country House as acquired a new chef.
Interminable globetrotter, master baker Stuart McClarty. Stuart has cooked as far afield as the slopes of the Himalayas, sojourning through the green hills of Hoedspruit and resting his feet in the comfort of his home kitchen. He’ll cook for them all – the celebrities or the average Joe who just wants to throw a fabulous dinner party. He’s old fashioned like that and takes his time to prepare the best dishes possible. He has developed a legendary sour dough as well as butternut ciabatta.
Stuart’s motto about food is to build with flavour. And we look forward to trying his culinary creations for ourselves!
