We arrived here in the evening on a Sunday, pretty tired from our traveling along the Garden Route. We were greeted with a champagne welcome with some snacks. We rode in golf carts with our luggage being pulled behind in a trailer and checked into our rooms. Nice rooms, but not over the top. We had a "luxury" room with... More

First up, the only reason why we stayed at this property was that it was a pre-requisite for me to play golf at the famous 'links' course the following day (Up to now, most of our travels have been in small B&B type establishments). My wife and I also played 9 holes of golf the previous evening on the Montagu... More

Thank you for sharing your wonderful feedback of Fancourt. I am sure that fellow travelers will find your constructive and informative review very helpful.

This is the best of everything - better than The Leela in Goa, better Taj Exotica in Sri Lanka and the best we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The staff are first class the food is magnificent and the rooms are superb. If you play golf, you will never find three golf courses of the like anywhere... More

A 5 star golf property. We arrived in the evening and left in the morning so didn't use much of the services of the hotel. The rooms were very good and food was excellent. Staff was professional and very friendly. The property hosts a lot of sporting events and is a nice property for family picnics and day outs. The... More

We rented a private Lodge House overlooking the 18th fairway of The Montague Course for 3 weeks. Without doubt this golfing paradise is exceptional. Club Hose facilities, Spa, Pool, Pro Shop, People and surroundings perhaps the best in South Africa. Golf buggies only in and around the estate make the experience more acceptable. Quite, friendly and rewarding.

Great great resort with nice huges rooms and great restaurants and the No. 1 & 7 golf courses in SA. Our room didnt have the beat view but that was our own fault as we booked late. But most houses or rooms had a view over one of the golf courses. Nice bar with a view of 18th green. Lots... More

Thank you for your complimentary review of Fancourt! We are incredibly fortunate to be situated in the heart of the Garden Route and to have the facilities that we have available to us. I am sure with the exchange rate being truly in your favour, South African prices would be “extremely cheap”. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!... More

Great facilities, beautiful place. Suite lounge needs upgrading-nowhere near 5 star. Minibar staff need training and stunk of cigarettes- not cool! Plumbing a disaster-every time someone else flushed a toilet during the night , we woke up!
