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. The weather was miserable but we soon warmed up when the log fire was lit....very friendly and well trained staff. We were made to feel at home immediately. We ate both... More

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... More

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. Moorecroft could not have been a more perfect place to be. From the wonderfully appointed rooms to the giant fireplace in the lounge / bar, to the magnificent food served and underfloor heated...

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. The cottage we had was a pleasure to stay in - just relaxing on the veranda or in the lounge. Staff were friendly and helpful - making the stay just that bit more relaxing. The breakfasts where great and... More

We wish we'd stayed more than one night here. The room was spacious and had everything you needed and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a luxurious touch. The grounds and gardens were lovely and we wished that we had been able to see them in the sunshine. The food at dinner was high quality and the wine good... More

If you plan to go drive up the Sani pass, this is a very good Base. All the rooms are on ground level and most of them look out over the garden and the Drakenbergen in the distance. There are windows on the alley side of the rooms, which are usually open, but therefore it can be a bit noisy... More
