The area is cold but Moorcraft Manor is warm and nice. The rooms are excellent and so the bathroom. The restaurant serves wonderful dishes....the tomato soup was something extra. The open fire completes a stay at this place.

We stayed here for 2 nights, our Executive suite was very comfortable and nice and warm when night temperatures were below zero. The restaurant was excellent, my only complaint being oversized portions of delicious food, breakfast freshly cooked to order and all topped off with beautiful log fires both in the restaurant and in the lounge. Such a beautiful garden... More

Moorcroft Manor is the hidden delight of the southern Drakensberg. The approach through a majestic avenue of London plane trees is a visual treat, and so are the extensive lawns, dams and open countryside, where we enjoyed birdwatching. We were really given a warm welcome on arrival, and shown our cosy warm bedroom (it was chilly outside, so this was... More

An absolute delight, calm, beautiful surroundings. My husband and I stayed there for one night on our way to Durban. It was just what we needed to start our holiday. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was really good. Our room was stunning. I will definitely recommend the place.

We stayed at this lovely place over the Heritage day weekend. Having made last minute travel plans, this was among the very few places available over the weekend. But we weren't disappointed, especially after the 6hr drive from Jozy! Moorcroft is a beautiful property, very secluded and quiet and the rooms are very comfortable. Most of them overlook the berg.... More
