Excellent service and facilities as one has been accustomed to at Fancourt. Still the ultimate golfing gem in the Western Cape. From arrival to departure, process was seamless and accommodating. Its a pity that the restaurants had to close earlier than usual because of lock-down restrictions, but otherwise excellent stay. Courses were in exceptional condition as well.

The Manor House is such an enjoyable experience within the Fancourt Complex. The Holmwood Suites are tastefully furnished with all the amenities and facilities that you need. Minibar, coffee machine, large TV, private pool, cakes and canapés. A small patio area if downstairs and a very small balcony if upstairs (we were downstairs). The staff are most accommodating and very friendly - from the maids to the front desk personnel. There is a car park local to the building. You can get your temperature checked each morning at the front desk and the appropriate coloured band issued for the day. The restaurants at the main building offer a wide choice of meals - pizzas, pastas, salads, various other hot meals and with breakfast available at 3 locations there is plenty of choice. Again staff are very pleasant and helpful everywhere you go. The Montagu and Outeniqua Golf Courses were in the best condition that I have ever seen them. Well done to Golf management and Greens Staff. The manor House is up-market but the accommodation within the complex has various levels and prices to suit all pockets.

I visited Fancourt for the first time with my family in December. We booked a 2-bedroom apartment which was clean and well-appointed. The resort is very large and the parking lot was quite far from our room. There are golf carts on call to shuttle guests around the resort and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes when we requested one. The pool area got quite busy and they had a maximum number of people they could accommodate due to Covid protocols. They provide sanitizers in the rooms and all the guests and staff took care to wear masks. Our overall experience of staying at Fancourt in George was excellent and we look forward to visiting again.

What a DISGRACE from Fancourt ... we have attended the children’s Christmas Party for 12 years which such enthusiasm and excitement that we have planned around this event & even relocated in time to attend it... but this year we find this... no cupcakes or gingerbread decorating, no proper entertainment, no lighting or decorations, no sit down dinner, no chairs! The venue has ALWAYS been the Fancourt Ballroom but alas this year it is not, it’s the floor of the cinema. Thankfully I spoke to many other parents who were just as shocked & disappointed by this phenomenal drop in standards. Once the benchmark for top golf resorts & service, now an utter embarrassment. FYI this is the FOURTH major stuff up in a matter of 3 weeks from Fancourt... clearly there is no Captain sailing this disasterous vessel rather multiple ring masters in a clowns’ circus... Truly truly horrified!!!! The pictures are of the Christmas party and what R160 per child gets you
