Had lunch here, the property is a little old (not vintage and not rustic) and uninspiring. The fox menu is limited but what they offer is tasty, good portions and well presented...it filled the immediate hunger

I liked the very good views and the crackers and cheese served at the wine tasting. The staff at the restaurant said that the card machine was not working. I had to pay in cash at the restaurant, but I could pay with my card at the wine tasting centre.Stairs from parking to venue. Small children's play area.

review by Wikus de Jager


The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The owners just the opposite. On what basis do you earn 4 stars at SA grading council without TV or barfridge in rooms? There is a huge mice/rat problem. They were running over corrigated iron roof from 03h00 and was very difficult to sleep. Very peacefull setting. Nice pool. Breakfast far below par. Scrambled eggs and toast?

review by andre schempers, South Africa


Manor House is a beautiful old building and our room was very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful.
