Hidtorical Cape beauty on the highveld provides an extraordinary blend of graceful architecture, spacious and elegant suites, sublime cuisine from the chef Eddie, attentive world class service from Norman and a welcoming and helpful team including Emelly and Connie. Serene spa experience topped it off. A wonderful place to retreat to, close enough but away from it all!
Welgelegen Manor is an absolute jewel. We were treated like royals during our stay. We honestly felt like Lords of the Manor! The food was excellent and the table settings and decorations were exquisite!
A restful weekend in the country spent in a beautiful and tastefully elegant Manor.The suite we had was so large and well appointed, not to mention the lovely rose garden and surrounds.Dinner and breakfast was top notch, but best of all was the care and attention that we got from Norman and Emelly. We were thoroughly spoilt without feeling the staff hovering, were sorry we only booked for one night. Would highly recommend as a luxury weekend getaway. An added bonus was that it took us all of 15 minutes to get to the Manor😊
The drive to Balfour might be a little strange depending on the route you take, but once you have negotiated the dirt road to the Manor, you are welcomed by the magnificent manor house and their friendly staff. We immediately noticed the quietness. It was bliss. We were upgraded to a palatial suite. I always judge a place by the coffee that they offer in the room, and I am pleased to say that filter coffee was offered, and topped up at my request. Dinner was exquisite, lamb loin with some veges. It was a 3 course meal. Breakfast was traditional fare of eggs, bacon and so on. It is always a nice touch when the Chef presents himself to be complemented. The only disappointment was that we had requested a late checkout which was approved, but on the day, the staff didn't allow it. We initially wanted to entertain our family for Sunday lunch, but the price was exorbitant, so we didn't book. The history is incredible. I urge you to read the book that was printed with the construction and family history. …
I flew in with a friend for breakfast. The staff were super accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was exceptional. I can highly recommend the venue and its friendly staff. Simply beautiful architecture!
