A lovely venue with great views from the rooms. The rooms are large and have underfloor heating, which is great for the cold evenings. The bed was very comfortable and the linen was crisp. Returning to the room after dinner to find the bed turned down and a weather report for the following day on the pillow was a lovely...

Stunning place, gorgeous views and very comfortable beds. Breakfast buffet was also worth it. Loved the heated flooring in the rooms. Parking close to the rooms so you could park right by your door when coming home late.

My family and i stayed the night of the 16th of April - the property was well kept clean and neat but lack attention to detail and ambience - a great shame with its location as it has the makings of been something special. The evening meal choice was good all though lacked the "wow factor" again lacking in details...

Dear Mark H We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the detail and ambiance of our 10 hectare park and Country House like our other guests who spent the Easter weekend with us. Your comment about the charges for your 16 year old daughter is not justified, because she would be considered as an adult as per...

A long drive from Pietermaritzburg but it was fun and with almost no turn-offs the route was easy. The small town of Himeville is a time capsule and the small lemon tree cafe is a delight. The scenery and views of the south Drakensberg is well worth the visit. arriving at Moorcroft Manor the sweeping beech drive presents a warm...

Most delicious food night after night after night - plenty to choose from too. Superb comfort and attention to detail in the rooms. Services daily - immaculately. The staff is unbelievable and professional - literally no request is too much. The same goes for the owners. There aren't words to describe the beauty of the garden and the location -...

What can I say that hasn't been said. Perfect setting, friendly and efficient staff, great food, perfect setting (already said but must repeat). The staff are extremely accommodating - nothing too much trouble. Excellent place to unwind - close to everything - mtb, hiking, sani pass, and did I say the staff were excellent. Well worth it and definitely will...

Facing Hodgson's Peaks in the Southern Drakensberg, in a pretty garden with expansive views. Very spacious comfortable rooms, very good menu and delicious food, Moorcroft is the ideal place to stay when exploring this area; conveniently situated to Underberg, Sani Pass and quaint Himeville. We had a very happy couple of days here.

We have stayed in Moorcroft Manor for 2 nights and it was wonderful! Nice and cozy bedroom and beautiful scenery. The restaurant is also of great value, with a very enthusiastic team in their kitchen and and lovely wines at the table. Really great value!
