The Post House was originally constructed in 1860 and is one of Greyton’s oldest buildings. The building was used as a trading post and a place and lodgings for tired travellers. The main building which houses the restaurant and new coffee pod, also includes the pub, which is well-known for the Bells Whiskey advert and was also Greyton’s Post Office.

What guests are saying

  • Such a relaxed weekend. Comfortable bed, with electric blanket... Perfect for chilly spring nights and morning.... Probably the nicest coffee I've has in a long time from the coffee bar sitting on the stoep with the morning sun streaming onto us through the tree. Looking forward to going back to the hotel and exploring Greyton further...oooh and awesome breakfast.

  • We had a superb weekend at the Post house the warm hospitality /service from the staff from the moment we arrived was spot on. We ate in the restaurant which was fabulous especially the tiramisu and Irish coffee by the roaring log fire was a special treat. Rooms very nicely furnished comfortable and very clean. 
    Can’t wait to go back.

  • The Post House has been revamped in a tasteful elegant way by the new owners. Such attention to detail...superb coffee (what a treat!!...deluxe my fav!) beautiful spacious and comfortable rooms, locally sourced delicious food (Italian! My fav again) and lovely communal gardens. Great art exhibited too.... Love that it's modern and elegant and a genuine effort has been made to keep things authentic and local Huge bonus points for electric blankets (winter has been so cold) and great wine around the cosy fire in the bar A real treat for a weekend getaway

The Coffee Pod

Seems like autumn has taken forever to come this year, but now that the cold days are back, what better way to comfort yourself than with a steaming cup of coffee?
If you don’t like coffee, then we also have various teas available, and some freshly baked pastries – inspiration, Janet!!

Wake up and smell some pretty good artisan coffee!
