Flycatcher Castle is owned and operated by Manie who was the most gracious host and talented sculpture. Flycatcher Castle also hosted a romantic engagement weekend for me and my partner in which this venue had everything and was the perfect backdrop for such an occasion. The food: Manie erves the most amazing 4 course dinners and was happy to accommodate... More

Not for children or narrow minded bigots. Please do not bother. My wife and I had a great evening there, entertained and fed by Manie - what a wonderful evening. The value for money is OTT and I would have paid double had he asked. The castle itself, while a little forlorn is beautiful and the decor is of another... More

A total different experience than the traditional hotels. Wonderful food is being served at one large table, which makes the interaction easy. The host is extremely friendly and he invites you in the kitchen to socialize while he is preparing an exquisite meal. The hotel is decorated in 1920 style and the bedrooms have all the comfort you want. Worthwhile... More

We stayed at the Flycatcher Castle while my wife rode a four day stage race in Graskop. Now not much happens in Graskop and other than Harry's Pancakes ( completely overrated in my opinion ) there is very little else in Graskop. Being here for 5 days we wanted something homely and boy did we find it. The castle is... More

After your drive through the low veld, pine tree forests and the mountains and then the small country town of Graskop, the last but very last think you expect is a castle at the edge of town overlooking the open "veld" and forest. As you come around the corner and see the towers of Flycatcher Castle you know, that you... More

This venue is one of the most beautiful (and most unexpected) places I have yet stayed in. A grand baronial castle, complete with it's own chapel, beautiful gardens, magnificent artwork and statues, and the most accomplished and attentive host. Our room was magnificent with a larger-than-kingsize bed and a grand bathroom in one of the turrets of the castle. There... More

We had an exceptional time! Even though some things went wrong and we could not have the room we originally booked, Manie and his team went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at home. They set up an extra special romantic dinner, served us an amazing four course meal and went through so much trouble to... More

Travelling as a woman on my own can be daunting at times. Being a guest at Flycatcher Castle smoothed away any possible discomfort in this regard. Manie is a gracious host, respected my privacy and was flexible to accommodate my needs. I stayed for 3 nights and on the last night felt the need to have dinner on my own.... More
