2 friends and myself spent 3 days over Christmas at this delightful hotel. The surroundings are stunning, and there is a sense of absolute peace everywhere. The rooms were excellent, with everything one could wish for - slippers, gown, sherry, a fridge etc. We had Christmas lunch which was excellent, and such great value. Each table was delightfully decorated, and each table received platters with the full Christmas menu on it. We had our leftovers for dinner, which the kitchen kept for us. The personal service from the owners was amazing - Goolu went out of her way to make it very special for me, liaised with my daughter in Hong Kong for extras in our rooms, and she even gave a beautiful lemon cake to my friends for their anniversary, compliments of the hotel. The staff were lovely as well. I highly recommend this hotel, and hope to return soon.

Moorcroft Manor gives you that country style, home from home feel. The owners dine in the same venue and nonchalantly mingle without imposing. The staff are attentive and extremely courteous.

The suites are spacious with separate en-suite, lounge, book selection, coffee station, underfloor heating etc.

We stayed here before under the previous ownership. Basically the accommodation is good but the service, especially in the dining room was poor. It took us over 30 minutes to be seated for dinner, despite arriving on time, and the meal, chosen from a very restricted menu, was very slow to arrive, taking over two hours in total. Breakfast was also a bit of a do-it yourself affair. We recommend removing all the surplus cushions from the bed and providing a proper set of bed linen - not just a top sheet and a reused duvet cover. Also investing in staff training would not go amiss.

We hear with regret about your finding yourself restricted by our menu that offers only a choice of 8 starters, 18 main courses and 6 desserts. The surplus cushions on every bed are imposed on us by the South African Hotel Grading Society and we shall be glad to forward to them your negative opinion about their requirement. We also follow their rules in regard to the bed linen which consists for every bed of a freshly laundered mattress protector, fitted bed sheet, top sheet and duvet with freshly laundered cover, all of the requisite quality/thread count with additional blankets available in every room. Sticking a bit closer to fact would certainly not go amiss.

We spent 3 nights at Moorcroft Manor over Christmas and were very impressed by the whole experience. Our rooms were large and very comfortable with wonderful views across the lawns to the mountains. The bathrooms were spacious and well equipped. The furniture and bedding were all of excellent quality. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned each day. The staff were all very efficient and helpful. They even assisted us with a shuttle booking for my son to Durban airport at 4am on the day after Christmas!!

A mixed review following our experience. On the positive side, the rooms were very well equipped and spacious, however it was noted that on arrival the vase of flowers that were in the room were completely dead and should have been replaced prior to new guests' arrival. The dinner and breakfast that we had were both very good and we cannot fault the chef and kitchen staff at all. Our main concern was the quality of the bed mattrass - this was so soft and completely collapsed under any weight and thus sleep was nigh impossible. We eventually resorted to sleeping on the floor as despite being hard at least provided some support to ones' back. We did report this to management (Clement) the following morning thus I trust that this has been resolved and that new mattresses have been purchased. Hence, overall for the price paid per night I do not believe we received value given our experience in Room 7.

Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you did not let us know straight away that you found the bed soft because we have equipped some of our rooms with firmer mattresses.

Our holiday at the Hotel was amazing. The entire staff of the Hotel made us feel comfortable and catered for all our requests. Mr. and Mrs. Kropf as the owners of the Hotel were great hosts and had a touch of professionalism and made us extremely comfortable at the Hotel. We would like to definitely recommend this place to everyone who is looking for a comfortable stay with children and pets.

Sadly, I only had a one night stay at this lovely property. The owner, Goolu, was an absolute delight and could not have made me feel more welcome. The staff was welcoming, warm, and professional, they could not have done enough to accommodate. I loved the large room, which included many extras that most properties do not consider for their guests. The food was wonderful and top rate. If I am fortunate enough to be in the area once again, I will definitely stay at Moorcroft Manor. Lastly, I loved my time with Sugar!!!!

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay. But during winter, especially in your area, because it’s so cold, you should think about investing in electric blankets for the beds or big blankets, and the fire place should be switched on when it starts being dark, like around 17:00, and the floor heaters should be on high, when customers are travelling to the hotel, so that the tiles get warmer faster, because it took a really long time for the floor heater to just start being warm. But overall, we really enjoyed our stay, the food was amazing, the view is incredible, the room was beautiful and very clean, and the drive was very enjoyable.

Spent a night here en route home and as a family of 6 we were very happy with the comfort and layout of the rooms. Very accommodating by ensuring we had a cot and everything else we needed. The rooms were very comfortable and the dinner in their restaurant was excellent for us all, even the fussy eaters. Would recommend for families due the the spacious rooms and outdoor areas.
