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

We stayed here for a long weekend. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The fireplaces really help to warm the place up during the cold winter nights. Its peaceful and quite. The food is amazing. A must try is the durban bunny chow - the home baked bread is really good. Overall, amazing place to stay.

We stayed a week at Moorcroft. The current owners have put huge effort into making this a very comfortable mid range hotel. The rooms are simply superb and rank alongside many five star. The views are outstanding with their own Lake in the Lee of the Bergs. The service second to none. Then the piece de resistance. . excellent cuisine.... More

Stayed a few days to visit the Drakensberg. Very comfortable room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good food. If you want to go up the Sani Pass ask for Crispin - great guide. Altogether a very good experience. Don't believe anywhere else in the area can compete.
