My wife and I went for dinner at this establishment. When we arrived, we were invited to sit in the sitting room and were brought drinks. Later, we were given the menus and we placed our orders. When our meals were ready, we were invited into the dining area. The food was quite delicious. I had mussels for an appetizer...

Moorcroft Manor alludes to elegance and comfort and delivers. We had a convivial welcome from Clements; was shown to our well appointed rooms with a pleasant lounge in between.

A year ago I opened up Tripadvisor on my phone to find out how Moorcroft Manor had been rated by other travelers. We were driving through Himeville and thought it looked a bit "fancy" with 4 stars on their board. We were pleasantly surprised with the reasonable prices and excellent food. Now in August, a year later, we stopped in...

Thank you for your review. It is good to hear from you that we have maintained our standards. You make reference to the main menu becoming a little bit more pricey.The fact is that margins in a place like Himeville are considerably smaller than in a comparable restaurant in the Midlands or in an urban area because big suppliers do...

We joined a number of friends here for a "Christmas in July celebration" only for us to be blessed with a White Christmas in this magnificent setting.

An oak-lined driveway leads you to this magnificent manor at the base of the Drakensberg. Beaurifully furnished interior, lovely restaurant and relaxing patio area with breathtaking views. Relax with a sundowner and watch the mountain reedbuck frolic across the lawn.

Beautiful setting and surrounded by some magnificent countryside. Our room was just stunning and so was our daughter's room which was slightly smaller but equally gorgeous. The view from the windows, looking at the Drakensberg was breathtaking. A very peaceful retreat.

We recently spent a 2 night stay in Moorcroft Manor for a wedding. The accommodation was exceptional and very well done.
