We could not have asked more of the establishment, everything was laid on which made for such a relaxing and comfortable experience for all. From the food that they were serving to the cleanliness of the rooms, We also had a special request for our braai and it was adhered to, Would highly recommend for holiday, business or a quiet relaxing couples holiday. Nothing was too much trouble.

A huge thank you to Soretha and the Staff. Keep up the good work

We went to walk the Tugela waterfall route and decided on staying at Willow manor. Soretha and all the staff really went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant throughout.
We are following a plant based diet and were a little concerned when we looked at the menu online, but after speaking to Soretha on the phone, she assured me that they will cater for us. Soretha and her lovely Mom went above and beyond to ensure our food was to our liking and continually asked for advice on how to improve on what they were doing. So awesome to see the level of hospitality and professionalism in today’s life.
Willow Manor is also centrally located to Golden Gate Highlands National Park and Clarens which is about a 10 min drive away.
The room was very clean and the little kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. Sitting on the deck outside the restaurant is such a special experience with a view second to none. Really a experience worth having.
Already planing our next trip to Willow Manor.

WOW! Our experience was a WOW! Willow Manor didn’t hold back on anything, room and personal touch was excellent, nothing missing. Highly recommend for a brilliant experience. Well done Willow Manor.

To add to the brilliant stay was breakfast at Sugar and Cinnamon, with wonderful staff, friendly, helpful and most hospitable, we enjoyed the quality Coffee, their complimentary water, (sweet water) and recommended Eggs Benedict.

I would go back for the breakfast.

The boutique was lovely, Variety of quality glassware and decor, odds and ends and their local products of jams, olives, sauces and treats.

The whole package of stay Bed and breakfast is a 12 /10 for us.

We will most certainly be back. Thanks to Martie, Rosemary and the staff, you have done so well.

Regard Darren and Debs.

We came all the way from Secunda to stay out of town to enjoy a bit of silence and get some sanity. What a pleasure it was to stay at your venue. I requested oxtail and sweet potatoes for dinner (my wife's favourite dish), and everything was perfect!!!!! What a way to surprise and spoil my wife. Also, the extras (rose petals on the bed and in the bath) are all greatly appreciated!!
Your breakfasts are something to be remembered. We lived like royalty.
Our stay has been a memorable one, and we will be back for sure.
Thank you for your hospitality and friendliness.

At the last minute we decided that a road trip would be amazing, and we found accommodation at Willow Manor. While the accommodation is close to the road, it is just outside the Golden Gate National Par, so it was quiet with beautiful views and we even managed to climb a mountain. I have to commend Martie and Rosemary for going out of their way to make us feel welcome. The accommodation was so clean and well looked after. It had everything one could need from a fireplace inside and out to a hairdryer diffuser, scissors and all the little touches like enough milk for coffee, a tot of sherry, rusks and just attention to details. The shower had good pressure, the bedding was good. We really were so comfortable and the breakfast was good too. Thank you.

A magical retreat from the city, upon arrival we were met with a clinically clean room and bathroom, indoor fireplace which was fully stocked.

The views were spectacular and the morning breakfasts just fantastic.

The bed was enormous and the morning view waking up looking into the mountain side was breathtaking.

A perfect quiet romantic getaway.

Definitely a must stay and will be coming back.

Went over with the family during the Christmas break, the area is very quiet and relaxing, it was the perfect getaway from the hustle of the busy city, I managed to forget about work and focus more on having a relaxing time with family. The view is something else, the mountains are calming and I would not mind waking up to that every day. The staff was ever so friendly which made out stay even more enjoyable.

The room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was excellent and the host went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and that all our needs were catered for. The restaurant catered for vegetarian and was delicious!
We will definitely be back !

We hiked the nearby Ribbok Trail, and we were super tired when we got to our accommodation.
After a great shower and delicious dinner, we could enjoy a beverage on the stoep and watch the amazing sunset over the Golden Gate Mountains.

Very comfortable accommodation, neat, clean and modern with a few extra special touches to make your stay memorable. Would definitely recommend!
