A long drive from Pietermaritzburg but it was fun and with almost no turn-offs the route was easy. The small town of Himeville is a time capsule and the small lemon tree cafe is a delight. The scenery and views of the south Drakensberg is well worth the visit. arriving at Moorcroft Manor the sweeping beech drive presents a warm...

Most delicious food night after night after night - plenty to choose from too. Superb comfort and attention to detail in the rooms. Services daily - immaculately. The staff is unbelievable and professional - literally no request is too much. The same goes for the owners. There aren't words to describe the beauty of the garden and the location -...

What can I say that hasn't been said. Perfect setting, friendly and efficient staff, great food, perfect setting (already said but must repeat). The staff are extremely accommodating - nothing too much trouble. Excellent place to unwind - close to everything - mtb, hiking, sani pass, and did I say the staff were excellent. Well worth it and definitely will...

Facing Hodgson's Peaks in the Southern Drakensberg, in a pretty garden with expansive views. Very spacious comfortable rooms, very good menu and delicious food, Moorcroft is the ideal place to stay when exploring this area; conveniently situated to Underberg, Sani Pass and quaint Himeville. We had a very happy couple of days here.

We have stayed in Moorcroft Manor for 2 nights and it was wonderful! Nice and cozy bedroom and beautiful scenery. The restaurant is also of great value, with a very enthusiastic team in their kitchen and and lovely wines at the table. Really great value!

Moorcroft Manor is a definite must, we stayed only 1 night en route to the wild coast, from arrival service was 5 star, we were greeted with friendly smiles and dinner and breakfast service was top rated, cannot find anything to fault - Dont change a thing.

Great location and lovely room, a bit small but the underfloor heating made up for it. The staff where great and supper friendly and the Main man Clement has an amazing sense off humour in Nelson Mandela's voice, a must see.

A beautiful place to stay. We loved the special touches in the room like the decanter of port with crystal glasses, and the idiosyncratic garden with its fibreglass hippo and antelope. The lovely grounds came into their own at sunrise with the ranges turning pink, trees in their autumn foliage perfectly reflected in the still lake and mist rising from...
