Moorcroft is a gorgeous property with a friendly staff, amazing views of the Drakensberg Mountains, and a beautiful small hotel. I was there this month (Feb 2013) with a small group after a wedding. I stayed in what appeared to be an older building (4 units) on the property which wasn't as nice as the main building (8 units) which appears to be newer. However, I still thoroughly enjoyed my time at the property.
If you want quiet, friendly, gorgeous views, great food and wine, this place is for you. If you are traveling alone and hope to meet a bunch of people you probably are in the wrong hotel and maybe in the wrong area in general. But with a group, it is perfect.
The staff is extremely accommodating and the stay went without a glitch. The staff was available when needed... always a few steps away, but I never felt they were over my shoulder.
They also have a lovely lake and a pool on the property. There is a spa on premises and they offer in-room massages. I got a 60 min massage which was very good and affordable.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend time in the Drakensberg Mountains or anyone who just wants some peace and quiet.
