Wonderful Fancourt exceeds expectations

Review of The Manor House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Oct 2023via mobile
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.

Room tip: Hotel does not allow children so there is peace and tranquility

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.

Room tip: Avoid golf season

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.

Room tip: Ground floor rooms appear to be better

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.

Room tip: Rooms overlook or face the private swimming pool area.

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.
