We stayed in the luxury room at Fancourt for two nights in January and it was amazing from start to fisnish - it was a safe gated resort with very friendly staff & caddies. My partner & my friends partner played golf both days - but I enjoyed walking round the coursed & taking photos as there was so much...

We had high expectations on our stay at Fancourt, which probably is reflected in my review since they were not really met. We, a family of 5 (youngsters age 18,16 and 12) stayed for four nights over New Year’s Eve, a busy time. We wanted a combination of golf and relaxation which we got. The kids could enjoy themselves while...

We were really looking forward to playing the links and are not disappointed in the least. The caddies were great and the course wonderful. Being handed a cold towel and a glass of orange squash on the 18th green was marvellous. Likewise halfway house food was delicious. As for the hotel, I completely fail to understand why, in his day...

Fancourt tries to please a wide range of clients, corporate, German golfers, discriminating travellers. I advise the latter category to stay at The Manor House, an exclusive collection of suites with its own staff and to play The Links. The rest is not for you. The staff at this resort are endlessly helpful friendly and charming but the customers can...

We had a business conference at Fancourt. We stayed in the lodge, great accomodation with lovely views and spacious rooms and very well fitted. Over the three days we had good food overall. The golf course though is the gem of this hotel, worth every penny and more. I played the Outeniqua course and had a memorable experience on the...

We returned for our third visit to Fancourt and found the main lounge and La Cantina has been re-done and much smarter. New chef at Henry White has also improved the food provided. Internet that last year was slow is now one of the fastest I have found in SA. The service was very good last year but has also...
