I was so disappointed. I was going to treat my husband to an exceptional night away from home, and it was a disaster. The room I chose on the website is no longer A true reflection of the real picture. This establishment is still charging the prices of a five star hotel, but unfortunately the rooms we occupied were far from five star. The room was icy. In need of maintenance. The old Aircon could not keep the room warm. On asking for a spare heater they brought oil heater that was rusted and made little difference to the temperature. The bathroom mat was threadbare, the basin was chipped. The advert spoke of a coal stove, which was missing from the room. We had lunch at the establishment as well. Lunch consisted of a tomato soup which had very little taste of tomato, fillet steak which was very tasty with mashed potatoes and a couple of veggies, the second choice was pork belly which was exceptionally fatty, and dessert was apple pie and chocolate mousse. The apple pie was no better than what you would get at any Spar. For this set menu meal they charge an astronomical fee which does not warrant the food we ate. They are still charging five star rates that what they are offering is nowhere near. All in all, a very disappointing experience. We declined breakfast the next morning as the room it would’ve been served in, where we had a lunch the previous day, was really cold. But I need to mention that the staff working there are really exceptional.

WORST NIGHTMARE STILL ONGOING 2 YEARS NOW!!! I chose morrells in Jan 2019 for my wedding, biggest mistake ever! Have had to get lawyers involved since Dec 2020, Ulrich Roux & Associates, if you read this and need help, go to Ulrich! I actually cannot put in summary everything that has happened as  this would be even longer. Honestly, I cannot relay every point where Morrells has dropped the ball, is that many times!! from the start I and 1 bad experience after the next, and the whole time, Bernice would not take my calls or call me back or my wedding planner, for 2 years I tried!!! I had something like 10 wedding planners over the first 8 months, and all my info kept getting lost, so my drinks or food chosen never got passed to the next planner, arrived for a tasting 18 months later, only hot told then that I couldn't have the food I chose. Now they trying to charge me for a food tasting that was part of the deal and booked 8 months in advanced. Which they were late for and apparently didn't have our booking! then had another planner tell me she is a better person than me!!  After I waited 8 weeks just asking for an image of the welcome board and still not got it, basics like this could not be done in a timely manner. after I arrived in SA for my wedding, tested positive, so devastated, had to call off my wedding and when I emailed Bernice, I got told I had to pay higher costs now for food, drinks and flowers. My external wedding planner that I had hired to help with Morrells total lack of organising a 65 people wedding,  told Bernice that  all other venues he was working with was honouring paod weddings and items paid for. not Morrells, no, they want us to pay +-R53000more now despite us having PAID AND BOOKING EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN THE VENUE to begin with!!

Overall experience fell short of expectation. Event co-ordination was disappointing. No return calls received and no confirmation of details. Will not recommend to anyone. A pity because this was a big celebration that was meant to be memorable.

Dearest Lana. I had wanted to call you personally after I had a thorough debrief of your event, but due to sudden personal issues I was unable to yesterday but had planned to today. With the service industry being one that serves to please makes up the first error on our part as we were not to accept your special event as we had a wedding on the estate and we never take other events if there is an estate wedding. The dream to celebrate in the gardens, canapés being served amongst the roses and lavender and dining under the Wisteria and stars was literally washed away with the most incredible storm and tremendous, constant rain that had you instead in a room that although pretty was I’m sure a little tight for your 20 guests and certainly not what you had hope and dreamed of. Without a kitchen attached makes service on all fronts a challenge. As a venue we cater for the amount of guests that we expect and unexpected additional guests create further challenge. We would normally always ensure a back up facility that would provide enough comfort but due to the wedding this was not possible. We host on average of between 1-3 functions daily and the expectation is that it would be superb and it is mostly exactly that however when it is not as in your case it’s affects our team immensely as we take to heart what we do and understand fully that guest celebrate significance at Morrells and when this is not met it affects the entire team. So for this we are deeply sorry. Your co ordinator joined us as a cleaner 12 years ago and then grew into a exceptional florist and decor specialist, she then aquired her drivers license and purchases all flowers and decor items on our behalf. She has now taken on the role of co ordinator and has done a tremendous job of this in the last year and still oversees decor and flowers. This response may not be eloquent as it perhaps should be on an international platform but it is heartfelt and genuine. We will be in direct response too.

Staying at Morells Guest Estate was an absolute joy. The beautiful old rooms and a lush garden makes for a truly country-side experience in the vast Johannesburg city-scape. The service also was quite exquisite with very friendly staff catering after your every need with a smile. A special thanks to the manager Laura and night butler CJ for the great service and wonderful stay. I will definitely return to Morells when in Johannesburg again.

I have used this facility many times in the past for small conferences (+- 7-8 people) as well as other facilities. I can truly recommend this venue as it is head and shoulders above the rest. The facilities are excellent and the staff always on standby to assist with any request.

I hosted my sister's baby shower at the Morrells Manor House. Firstly the events manager, Sarah was amazing throughout the time leading up to the event. The venue is absolutely stunning, the pictures do not do it enough justice. It is very clean and green. On the day of the event, the hotel was on time with everything. The decoration was beautiful. The service throughout the day was great, the staff was friendly and helpful. Our overall experience was truly amazing.
