My wife and I have stayed at The Manor House on several occasions over recent months and we love it. We always have a Holmwood Suite on the ground floor. The room has a utility area just inside the door with a stocked fridge (replenished daily) and coffee pod machine, hot water dispenser and a milk warmer. There are several decanters of spirits also. Plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery and bottled water. The lounge area is of a decent size and has a free WiFi, AC, settee, easy chairs, coffee table plus a large screen HDTV with 55 channels. The patio doors open out to a table and chairs and access to the private swimming pool area with sun beds. Large bedroom with a Kingsize bed, underfloor heating, bedside tables and AC. The bathroom/dressing area contains a stand-alone bath, double wash basins, plenty of drawer and wardrobe space, toilet and shower. Linen changed very regularly, hairdryer, dressing table, umbrellas and bathrobes. Underfloor heating and heated towel rail. Plenty of amenities like shower soaps, creams, bath crystals, etc. The suite doesn't want for anything and is in a very quiet location. There are also rooms on the 1st floor with a small balcony. Afternoon cakes and canapés prior to dinner are included. Breakfast is taken at one of the restaurantsThe building has a lounge and bar. All the staff are great, very helpful and courteous, led by Jayne Barlow, the manager. A great place to stay. Not cheap but well worth staying even if only for a special occasion.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Manor House. The staff were all wonderful, and can't do enough for you. The suite was a good size with direct access to the pool from our lounge room. Each ground floor suite has a small outdoor sitting area with a table and chairs, perfect to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning. Lovely breakfast at Henry White's each morning. I recommend HW over Cantina, as the atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxed; however if you have an early tee off, the buffet at Cantina is faster. The daily afternoon tea was lovely, savoury canapés and cakes with sparking wine. One comment however is that when the food runs out it is not replenished. Our husband's arrived for afternoon tea about 45 minutes after us (still during the afternoon tea service) and when we asked for more canapés, I was told that once they are finished that's it! I was surprised and would have expected the canapés to be replenished as long as people are enjoy the afternoon tea. The massage in the main hotel was one of the best I have ever had in my in my life! Highly recommend, also book these in advance, as I only booked one before arrival and could not get another appointment during our stay. I would have booked a treatment every day if I knew how good it was! My only negative comment - the food in Cantina needs improvement. We had dinner there once and decided to cancel our second booking. Overall, we absolutely loved The Manor House at Fancourt and will absolutely be returning again in the future. Thanks to all of the staff at the Manor House for making it such a lovely stay. Already planning to return!

Have been blown over by the attention to detail at Manor House Hotel.
Thsi is one of the best places I have stayed in. All the staff are fantastic, in particular Mark who comes looking for us when he is on duty to may sure that we are ok.

It is such a lovely place, quiet but not imposing. Lovely pool. The breakfast at La Cantina has every type of food you can think of. Martha is very patient with us, she is trying to teach us Xhosa. In fact all the staff at Fancourt has made us feel like family. There are three very good golf courses here, all in superb condition. I would highly recommend a stay here.

The Manor House delivers a luxury hotel experience beyond compare. From the friendly front of house team, May, Danielle and Elie to name a few, to the discreet and courteous housekeepers, our time at Fancourt was truly memorable. Nothing was too much trouble, and numerous delightful touches like complimentary transfers from the airport, canapés and afternoon tea in the lounge area and a welcome message and wine upon our arrival, all elevate the Fancourt experience.

Add to this a stunning location, a beautiful secure estate, world class golf, excellent restaurants and it’s difficult to describe it other than perfect. The spa is undergoing renovations, so difficult to comment on this, although I suspect it will be similarly impressive when completed.

Highly recommended, an amazing hotel, and we will definitely be returning in the future!

What a beautiful hotel. . Beautiful hotel situated in George. Staff can't do enough for you, they make you feel very special, it's a privilege to be here. Beautiful swimming pool, canapés and sparkling wine in the afternoon, there is everything here that you could want more from a hotel. I have travelled the world and stayed in some fabulous places but there is no hotel to rival this one. You must visit this hotel, can't speak highly enough about it.

Excellent facilities and even better service. Very personalised and attentive. Rooms were clean with all of what you would need and more. Location also outstanding. Suggest the room with the balcony, subject to affordability. Also try the La Cantina restaurant next door.

Wow is the first word that comes to mind! This place is special. We chose it for my 50th Birthday celebration and it did not disappoint. Thank you to all the staff who made my birthday breakfast very special!
We were met at the airport and transferred the few minutes to Fancourt where we were staying at The Manor House.
Our suite was amazing and had absolutely everything and more! The location toiletries were excellent and lovely to have to try.
The Manor House and it's team of Butlers take care of your every need to make sure your stay is relaxing and stress free. A first class experience all round.
Particular mention and thanks to Anton who, having been the first butler we met, became our main go-to person and he sorted everything effortlessly. Also a thank to Adolf who, again was on hand to make sure our stay was very comfortable and also anticipated our likes/dislikes after a few days.
The facilities available on the resort include a leisure complex, a separate and superb spa, 3 golf courses, practice facilities, tennis, walks etc. You cannot get bored here I promise you
The golfing experience was world class. At The Links the experience, complete with caddies, food at the halfway house and drinks as you leave the 18th is second to none!
The other courses are also in superb condition and a real challenge in beautiful surroundings.
A BIG thank you to Joseph the Starter on Montagu who went over and above the call of duty to help us out when we lost my husband's phone!
You have to experience The Manor House to understand how special and relaxed it is.
Fancourt main hotel is also super so there is plenty of choice
Well Done to the team for such a well run operation and great staff attitudes!

I stayed in this outstanding golf resort on 01 March'14 on a business trip to South Africa.

The moment you enter the resort you feel like you have come into a paradise. Staff out here are extremely courteous and ready to help you in every possible ways. Food at La Cantina Restaurant was mouth watering. Everything in this resort is like a picture perfect, rooms were very good, with amazing golf course views and superb amenities.

Can't wait to get back to this hotel and get myself pampered in the hands of amazing staff.

This was our second visit to The Manor House and it was just as perfect. On arrival at George Airport we were met by Chesnik (apologies if I've spelt his name incorrectly). We had a lovely chat on our way to the hotel, he truly is a really friendly courteous young man. We were taken up to our suite which was just gorgeous. The only tiny niggle we had was the airconditioning not working, eventually they found the problem and fixed it. All staff members in the Manor House and Fancourt were so friendly. There was a Pro-am Golf tournament on and the staff coped perfectly. What a wonderful place we look forward to returning. Thank you to Anton and all staff.
