When visiting Fancourt over the weekend I opted to stay at the more secluded Manor House, in part because I needed some peace and quiet after a hectic trade show week and in part because this is the type of hotel which always fuels my imagination. Manor House guests have free access to all other facilities on the estate, including...

Having stayed at Fancourt often in the past I must say, the difference between just Fancourt, or the Manor House is truly felt. Personal service. Funnily enough one of the highlights for me was the breakfast. Trusted traveller seems to feel the opposite. The staff are attentive, the buffet, if one considers the tiny number of rooms, I found to...

The Manor House design is fantastic, and the rooms are very luxurious and well worth the price. There is a lovely pool and the overall service is very good. The food quality is excellent but the F&B service is not on par with the quality of the food the chefs are preparing. The evening meal service lacked the correct etiquette...

We enjoyed last year’s stay so much we had to return. We chose a very busy time and had some trouble booking the week we wanted.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Presiding over a quiet corner at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains for more than 150 years, Fancourt's stately Manor House is recognised as Africa's Best Romantic Boutique Hotel. A national monument, the hotel recently underwent a careful refurbishment to lovingly restore its 19th century features and bring them up to modern standards and excellence. A stay on one of the 18 luxurious suites assures guests the attentions of a personalised butler service, five-star luxuries and convenience in keeping with the genteel atmosphere. Exceptional features include a grand library, refined Montagu Bar and dazzling swimming pool, as well as the hotel's classic Henry White's restaurant with its delicious European-inspired flavours, and original Klaus Fussman oil paintings adorning the walls.
