Facing Hodgson's Peaks in the Southern Drakensberg, in a pretty garden with expansive views. Very spacious comfortable rooms, very good menu and delicious food, Moorcroft is the ideal place to stay when exploring this area; conveniently situated to Underberg, Sani Pass and quaint Himeville. We had a very happy couple of days here.

We have stayed in Moorcroft Manor for 2 nights and it was wonderful! Nice and cozy bedroom and beautiful scenery. The restaurant is also of great value, with a very enthusiastic team in their kitchen and and lovely wines at the table. Really great value!

Moorcroft Manor is a definite must, we stayed only 1 night en route to the wild coast, from arrival service was 5 star, we were greeted with friendly smiles and dinner and breakfast service was top rated, cannot find anything to fault - Dont change a thing.

Great location and lovely room, a bit small but the underfloor heating made up for it. The staff where great and supper friendly and the Main man Clement has an amazing sense off humour in Nelson Mandela's voice, a must see. The food in the Restaurant is great and both the food and wine is well priced. The bar and...

A beautiful place to stay. We loved the special touches in the room like the decanter of port with crystal glasses, and the idiosyncratic garden with its fibreglass hippo and antelope. The lovely grounds came into their own at sunrise with the ranges turning pink, trees in their autumn foliage perfectly reflected in the still lake and mist rising from...

2 wonderful dinners at this elegant restaurant.

Didn't realize it was the owner at the time, but he was very friendly and chatted to us and...

We stopped by to have a nice warm breakfast. It was warm and light breakfast served in a lovely ambience. The view of Drakensburg mountains with a cup of coffee was perfect. We will recommend friends to stop by , and enjoy nature

Went for dinner and the selection was slightly limited. The food presentation was good and the meal tasted great. It has a boutique hotel feel which gives the place a sense of exclusivity. Venue is well decorated and has a warm touch.

This hotel was chosen at the last minute as our booked hotel was too far from the Sani Pass. We were not disappointed, it was great, everyone made us feel welcome. The food was great and the chef was interested to hear our feedback. Great views over the mountains.
