We stayed at Fernwood Manor for 4 nights. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the rooms were very comfortable and clean, but room 8 may need a makeover in the not to distant future. The breakfast was delicious, especially the fruit salad and homemade banana and blueberry muffins.

The room my sister stayed in
"We could only get a room next to the pool which was great to sit outside under the veranda or on the loungers or in the pool!"
"Family room very comfortable and lagre with second bedroom"
"all the rooms shown to us were great, but the Almond Suite, Room 5, was the suite given to the bridegroom!"
"Choose a room with the moutain view. If rooms are still available maybe don't hesitate to ask and pick up the one you prefer."
"The garden rooms are excellent"
