Old school hotel which is comfortable. Hotel is comfortable and in a peaceful tranquil environment. One of those places that have stood still in time and decor from the 70/80's. Had dinner, however was disappointed as the meal was overcooked. Choices for accommodation in Stutt is limited, so nice to be in a comfortable environment.

Wow, where do I begin, Ingrid, the owner, made this weekend possible! 117 people and she accommodated all of us. Providing dinners and breakfasts, providing incredible braai packs for lunch everyday. Kepp fires going and the bar prices were very reasonable. The venue is unbelievably beautiful, at the foot of the Amatole mountains, rolling lawns, beautiful garden, yet very private. On the Saturday, we had a 3 course meal which was fantastic. Her staff are so friendly and cheerful, always helpful. We all had a memorable weekend and it was all thanks to Ingrid and her wonderful staff. I recommend The Manderson to anyone who wants to escape the rat race and experience a little bit of heaven. Solo, couples, large groups, it makes no difference, everyone will fall in love with this place and not want to leave!

We booked in some months back as we attended a wedding in the area. On arrival in the afternoon we checked in and to our surprise found pillow cases missing, no toilet paper and ladies underwear in the room after it had been confirmed ready for occupation. We stayed in room 10 which is rather noisy in the early morning so don’t expect to lie in at all. Between kitchen clattering the sound of the birds is stunning. Didn’t sleep well as we had loud people walking around until after 01h00. Don’t think I will be back in a hurry.

WOW. After a long journey on the road, arriving at The Manderson was like coming home. The rooms were clean, the staff were so friendly and the food was Delicious! Not to mention the presence of all the beautiful animals, which unfortunately we weren't allowed to take with us :) Ingrid and her team went above and beyond to accommodate our film crew AND contestants while we were filming nearby. It was an absolute pleasure to stay there and we were so sad to leave. We cannot recommend The Manderson Hotel enough! Thank you for everything!

What a marvelous gem, quaint peaceful beautiful hotel with friendly attentative staff with spectacular views. Horses on the property were in good shape and well cared for. The surrounds and gardens were spectacular with large oak trees and other large indigenous trees. Excellent bird life and lovely nature walks close by. Food was good and the room was superb. Overall an excellent stay.
