The Post House in Greyton

Situated just 90 minutes from Cape Town in the beautiful Overberg region, Greyton is home to the charming Post House.

The Post House was originally constructed in 1860 and is one of the oldest buildings in Greyton. The main building was used as a trading post and lodging for tired travellers. The Post House country pub, which is well known for the Bells whiskey advert, was also once Greyton’s post office.

The Post House was proclaimed a National Monument on 28 December 1993 and the unveiling of the plaque was done by former State President F.W. de Klerk.

Our guest rooms and restaurant have recently been elegantly refurbished and offer guests accommodation for weekend getaways, midweek conferences and intimate country weddings.

Greyton boasts a variety of art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and quaint stores.

Visit the Greyton Saturday morning market and take home delicious local pestos, cheeses, preserves and jams, a variety of baked goods and handmade items. Breakfast rolls, lemon curd pancakes and many more wonderful products are on offer.

Greyton is fast becoming a popular mountain biking town offering routes for all levels of riders. Annual mountain biking events take place throughout the year. Greyton has proudly hosted the ABSA Cape Epic in 2009 and it will be hosting the ABSA Cape Epic event again in 2014.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Post House in Greyton.

We stayed at the Post House for two nights and could easily stayed there for a week. The whole place was recently renovated and under new ownership. The Post House shines with a fresh and vibrant look, yet respecting the heritage of the historic building. The garden bursts with an array of indigenous flowers and roses. Each room is a little lap of luxury. The bar has a legendary charm. The breakfast is the best you'll find in town and the coffee served at the little shop can stand up to any hipster coffee shop in Cape Town. The staff is super friendly and on top of all the small things that turn a nice stay into an unforgettable one.

I didn't stay at the Post House Hotel so I can't rate that. But the coffee space and restaurant are quite nice. The strawberry smoothie was yummy! Thought a bit on the pricey side, the restaurant has a very quaint look to it and the owner and staff are very friendly. I'm only giving 3 stars because I was a bit disappointed with the menu given the limited food options and small drink list. But to be fair, the Post House is under new management and they have only been in business for a little over a month now. I would definitely check it out again should I go that side..

Lovely country setting. Lots of little things to spoil you, like complimentary tea with chocolate mud cake and savoury scones. Lovely breakfast.
