The Post House Country Hotel is conveniently located in the Heart of Greyton.
“It offers the perfect blend of quiet country charm and boutique hotel luxury… Established in 1860 as the first Post Office where mail was brought in by ox wagon weekly. The original building is beautifully restored and declared a national monument. The property exudes elegant country and old world charm with rooms leading onto manicured gardens.”
We arrived on a very hot day and were greeted by friendly staff. The warm welcome accompanied the check-in, which encompassed a tour and explanation of the charateristic property and all its facilities. Then onto our air-conditioned room. Bliss!
We stayed in one of the Deluxe Rooms which was not only beautifully decorated, but spacious and comfortable too. This is complemented by an equally generous bathroom with Healing Earth amenities. The king size bed is dressed with crisp white linen, this together with air-conditioning, safe and tea & coffee facilities. Don’t forget the delectable homemade biscuits.
On the first evening dinner from the restaurant was served on our a little patio overlooking the tranquil garden. It’s inviting and peaceful- enjoying nature, the view of the surrounding mountains and listening to birds at play. This is contrasted by the red umbrellas, yet adding to the serenity.
All this whilst enjoying Chef, Grant Greg Lynott’s heartfelt masterpieces and a glass (or two) of local wine. A perfect start after arriving from Cape Town- relaxation at its best.
On the second night we enjoyed dinner at the restaurant, located in the main building. Tasteful decor and cosy atmosphere surely enhanced our experience –dinner is a must.
The food is not only of high quality, but creative, well presented and delicious too. They have a great selection of wines to choose from or if you prefer, drinks from the bar.
We loved our Beef Carpaccio Starter. This was followed by perfectly prepared Pork Belly and Fish of the Day.
Dessert is to die for, thanks to the tip from the attentive staff, their secret sweet indulgence. The staff made the experience even more special.
The Post House Turndown is an affair of poetry- decadent chocolate from Von Geusau, accompanied by a motivational quote. What better way to end the day than by handmade Belgian chocolates from Greyton’s famous Chocolatier, like a wink from the gods.
Breakfast is yet another treat with delicious coffee and served in the restaurant. It is an inviting buffet promising to satisfy every fancy, offering a selection of cereals, yogurts and fresh fruits along with homemade breads, pastries and preserves. The Menu focuses on fresh local ingredients. This will set you up for the day.
As the Post House is perfectly located within walking distance from all the activities Greyton has to offer as well as galleries and cafes. Those who prefer some leisure, just soaking up the sun, will find the pool area to be ideal. As we did, after exploring Greyton, relaxing and enjoying The Post House hospitality.
