Greyt-on-Main Guest House Greyton
Western Cape

Accommodation South Africa

At Greyt-on-Main Guest House's hosts treat every guest like a Royal as the focus of this establishment is on personal service for everybody dining and accommodating at Greyt-on-Main. The owners attempt to achieve this by combining individual attention to the guests with excellent food and most comfortable rooms. The spotlight falls on one of the best restaurants in the Overberg which has recently been graded 4 (of 5) stars by the Tourism Grading Council (TGCSA). Set in the H. E. Bapst building at 31 Main Street, as the name implies, the Greyt-on-Main has been transformed from an otherwise dull and lifeless house into an elegant and tastefully understated restaurant of formal decor, with pastel blues predominant. No costs have been spared in elegant plate mounting, cutlery and crockery, fixtures and fittings. The all-stainless kitchen with its state-of-the-art appliances able to cater for 40 guests at regular sittings, and more on functions. Modern and comfortable furniture corresponds very well to antique cupboards and accessories, and the wall picturing establishes a lovely connection from South Africa to Europe and to old times' eating customs. Ceiling fans keep the place cool in summer; an open fire place plus panel heaters all around warm it up in winter. Everything in starters, soups, salads, vegetarian & pasta, main fish and meat dishes can be selected a la carte, innovative desserts, and a selection of cheeses from the area complete the offer. As a matter of principle the meals are always freshly cooked which, of course, requires greater efforts in shopping at distant markets and preparing the truly appetising food.

The Guest House: It is not only the fine German-Continental cuisine, it is also the spacious and comfortable rooms that attract visitors. They are all individually accessible and screened off from the Main Street's noises. The average room size is just about 24 square meters and so is larger than the average elsewhere. The studio rooms (3, 4) accommodate an additional bed for children, converted to a sofa when unused. Just to mention a few important trim details:
There is an air-conditioning unit in each room which will keep the temperature down in the summer months, and under-carpet heating has been installed to set warm temperatures in winter. Bar fridges in all rooms provide alcoholic and non-aloholic beverages for a guests' delight, and coffee/tea facilities are available, as well. Major South African programs can be watched on the rooms' television. It should be noted that no TV is displayed in the lounge. Last but not least, down-filled (twin) quilts and cushions as customary in many German and European establishments are used for the (twin) beds and invite to a relaxed and contented sleep. The en-suite bathrooms are likewise spacious and have panel-closed shower compartments. Heated towel rails provide for an additional comfort and keep the bathrooms warm when necessary. Depending on the individual liking, the breakfast varies from Continental to English and German, the latter including cold cuts, cheese and a cooked egg in lieu of fried eggs with bacon. While lodging at the guesthouse, host visitors may consider, for their convenience, a game of croquet or a boule competition. Enjoy a night or two at the Greyt-on-Main Guest House, and you will feel like a Royal with all these amenities! The Greyt-on-Main Guest House has been graded, 4 (of 5) stars by the TGCSA and been rated highest by the Automobile Association (Superior Accommodation).
