We spent a weekend at Welgelegen Manor for our 2nd anniversary. On the whole, the weekend was excellent. The manor building and grounds are fantastic - it feels like you have been transported back in time. Being an old building, the owners have kept that feeling alive with things like a chess room, croquet, archery etc. Not once did we...

So as a seasoned traveller you think you know all the little getaway hideaway spots about 1-3 hours out of Johannesburg, right? Those not unpleasant but rather predictable (and often amateurish) lodgings and restaurants in the Magaliesberg; the dreary drive in and around the west rand to get there and back; those cutesy places in Dullstroom (past the hideous coal...

We booked for the night for our wedding anniversary and felt absolutely spoilt and pampered from the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Rayna. We stayed in one of the stable rooms and it is spacious, beautifully decorated and super comfortable. Apart from a lovely sized bedroom you have a separate lounge, changing area and huge bathroom which has...

Yet one feels so at home by the warmth exuded by Conny, Rayna & every staff member. An unforgettable experience. One wants...

We had our wedding at Welgelegen which turned out to be the most incredible weekend! The house has so much charm and the gardens are beyond stunning and impeccably maintained. On top of that, the service is excellent with staff always going the extra mile to make each guest feel special. It was also so easy to arrange our special...

We were here a year and a half ago, and were very happy with our stay then. We were curious and decided to come back again. We must admit, things have only improved - if that was possible.
