Manie you always go the extra mile to ensure your guests are at home & treated with respect. The food was exquisite. The gardens........ wow what a sight. This is the... More

The entire castle is uniquely decorated, the art is inspiring and the food in mind blowing. The owner went out of his way to make us feel like honored friends, and not just more guests in a hotel. It was relaxing and feels like you are in another era entirely. Closer to home was the feeling of a King's Court... More

It was by pure chance I learnt that the castle existed when I started to plan our latest trip (a wonderful memory by now). We used the Flycatcher Castle as our base and went traveling to nearby sites and towns. The stay and the experience was all very worthwhile. Manie goes to much lengths to ensure that guests are comfortable... More

The castle,food and all the art are clearly a labor of love. The owner takes special care in making guests feel warm and welcome and caters to their every need. We met a lovely Australian family at dinner,and left flycatcher castle reluctantly, feeling part of a family. Highly recommended

For a relaxing getaway with the most beautiful views. The food ia the best I ever had and we were spoiled rotten. The rooms and artwork are magnificent. So close to all the hotspots in the lowveld. It was the most relaxing experience I ever had. Manie is so accomodating and a wonderful host.Really a unique experience

The first weekend of December 2014 we spent at Flycatcher Castle, for a family wedding. Manie Connoway and his team were unbelievable in every sense of the word! They waited on us all hand and foot! Their friendliness and true human spirit is most unusual in my years of experience in hospitality. They went above and beyond. I can understand... More

We stayed in the Flycatcher Castle for one night in August 2014 and loved it! The owner Marnie (chef, cook, architect, musician, artist, sculptur and collector) is very charming and interesting person. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Marnie to hear about the hotel's history and even got a guided tour through the castle. The amount of work - and... More

It was my first time in this part of South Africa, and I couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay!! We were welcomed by Marnie and the cutest dogs, a nice glass of fortified wine and a pleasant chat, just what we needed after a day of shopping and a drive from Nelspruit. The castle is solid and...

What an incredible place to stay. We were welcomed with a fortified wine and then shown to our rooms. All the rooms were very spacious and luxurious. They included an magnificent bath in each. So decadent. The beds were huge and extremely comfortable. The food was to die for. A delicious 4 course meal. The chocolate mousse with a twist... More

The First night we arrived, we thought the castle is the perfect place for a horror story to unfold. The realism and detail of the castle had us convinced it is a 17th century castle. The experience is one of a kind, Manie was the perfect host. If there was any request out of the ordinary he would do his... More
