Stunning location and just outstanding service from staff who are friendly, smile, engage and are always there to help you.

I explained to a member of staff how much my wife would like it, and the staff member responded with "then we must give you something to take back to your wife as a memento of your trip." I thought no more of it, but that night in my room was a bag full of "bathroom treats" - soaps, bath bombs, salts etc.

It was just all a "wow"!

We do travel a lot and most of that has to do with golfing. We have been to the Fancourt before and liked it already, but this time was some real extra-class.
The freshly renovated Manor House is clearly amont the best we have ever seen - and so far it is the best hotel we stayed at so far. We know the Ritz Carltons as well as the One and Only but we haven't ever experienced such a warm hearted, family-like atmosphere in a really exquisit suite like this.
Just the same as all rooms on the ground floor we were only a few steps away from the pool and a few more steps away from everything else (restaurants, golf-courses, fitness-center, jogging trail etc.).
For luxury golf experiences, this is certainly within the top10 in the world.
Actually, Fancourt has now 3 golf courses and the next one is in it's final building stages.

Room Tip: All rooms are incredibly big and bathrooms are almost as spacious as the room itself. You only have...

We were recently so lucky to stay at the Manor House in Fancourt, the newly upgraded boutique hotel on South Africa's most famous golf estate, and it was a superb experience from the word go. The proactive service, the food, the Lavazza coffee machines, the free mini bar, the spacious suites, the high tea and sparkling wine and especially the golf and spa all contributed to create an experience to remember.
We can only give this superb place the highest accolades. I don't think I have ever experienced service as good as this. Obviously the wonderful setting of Fancourt all contributes to the atmosphere and if you are a golfer even better.
We laughed our heads off at the surprise towel animals in our room every night but will not give the game away because part of the fun was to discover which animal was created for your room that night.

Room Tip: We were in suite 3 and my sisters in suite 2, both overlooking the swimming pool and lovely!

We have been lucky enough to stay at some of the best hotels/resorts including The Four Seasons and Six Senses groups and can safely say this 4 night experience ranks right up there with the best of the best. The service level is superb and Roxanne (Ops manager of The Manor House) and her team are to be congratulated, this is the finest and friendliest butler service around. Wonderful spacious rooms with fabulous linen and the first class amenities. It is a haven within Fancourt although it must be said Fancourt is a haven in itself, the service throughout the resort was excellent and especially in golf club. It runs like a very well oiled machine. If you love the finest things in life, love golf, love great service and love South Africa then look no further than The Manor House. We can't wait to return!

Stayed here over New year for five nights.Our suite of rooms were furnished to high standard in a contemporary style.The staff were excellent and very attentive.The Manor House is an oasis of tranquility in comparison to the main hotel next door.Being New Year it was full of family's and extremely noisy(no kids allowed in the Manor House).
Played golf on the Montagu(excellent) and the Links twice.If you play golf, do not miss playing this course as it will be one the best and toughest courses you will play on.
The only negative comment would be that the restaurants at Fancourt are not up to the standard of the rest of the resort.

Room Tip: Room 19-Grand Suite.
