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.

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 were booked in to Fancourt for a 4 night golfing stay, but on arrival were upgraded to the Manor House. What can I say? The whole experience was amazing, fantastic rooms, spacious, beautifully decorated, opening onto a courtyard, the door surrounded with fragrant jasmine. Large bathroom, sumptuous robes. The setup is very quaint, with the library and drawing room, but every detail is attended to. Service was second to none. We played all 3 Fancourt courses, all stunning, especially the Links. The Roman Bath was great, as the weather wasn't good enough to swim in the outdoor pool, so enabled us to luxuriate in the warm pool instead. We had a fabulous time.

We stayed at the MH for 5 nights on the last leg of our anniversary SA trip and to experience Fancourt. OMG so glad we did. The Manor House is a luxury boutique hotel. Beautiful location and surrounndings. This is a well kept beautiful decorated.property. The MH is in a great location with a short walk to the Fancourt facilities. We were made to feel like royalty from arrival to departure. The Manager, Jayne and all the Concierge Team were fantastic, We were given first class customer service throughout our stay. The Team could not do enough to make our stay special and on occasions went beyond service we have ever experienced. The room was fantastic. Lovely decorated with everything you could want in a room. Separate living area, large comfortable bedromm and very large bathroom with under floor heating, The room was very clean and thanks to housekeeping for making the towel display on the bed- it was outstanding. The MH is compact but just perfect. Quests can make use of the outdoor swimming pool, which is lovely. The library and honesty bar were a step back in time but so fitting for this historic building. The drawing rooms are beautiffuly decorated with afternoon tea served. Please try the cakes and canapes, they are to die for. Breakfast is served in HW , however we opted to use the adjoining retauarnt due to golf tee times. The Team did offer to set up brealfast in our room which was a lovely touch. The Concierge Team are amazing. Their attention to detail is first class. We unfortunately got soaked during our golf round and the team kindly offered to take our wet clothes to be dried, that was appreciated. Special thanks to Bianca for her amazing ability to provide the wow factor in customer service on several occasions.. The Concierge Team (Bianca) also recommended restauarants which were fantastic and arranged transport to take us and pick us up. Special thanks to Charles, who was the most lovely, polite man and provided us with the history of the location during our trips. He was outstanding. Would highly recommend the Manor House and will definitely return to this hidden gem.

This was our third visit to Fancourt and 2nd visit to The Manor House. We were blown away the first time and only could stay one night so for my 60th birthday I asked my husband for a return trip. As we come from Florida this was a big request and the Manor House did not disappoint. From arrival to departure they do absolutely everything to make your stay the absolute best experience. It's the little things that make it so amazing. We asked to have breakfast at the house and it was raining so they quickly set it up in the little library. The afternoon tea is always made special with a different cake and little savory treats every day. No request is turned down and it's always delivered with a smile. Cant forget the dinner at Henry Whites either, my husband wanted Springbok which was not on the menu and the chef went out of his way to get some in time for our dinner, this is above and beyond what most places do for the guests. Thank you to all the staff for making my trip one of the best memories I will ever have!
