We visited Fancourt and stayed in the hotel for a week at the end of December, and every aspect of the hotel, grounds, staff, was superb. From entry at the gates and being professionally welcomed by the security personnel ... our stay was excellent. The check-in was smooth, professional and extremely welcoming and warm, with an offer of sparkling wine of fresh orange juice. Our bags were whisked away to our rooms (connecting) without delay and we were shown around the hotel amenities and to our rooms. The rooms were exceptionally spacious and comfortable - tasteful furnishings, beautiful percale bed-linen, plush towels and spotlessly clean.
The views onto the magnificently maintained gardens and golf courses were an added treat. A wide selection of teas and coffees was avaible in the room, as well as well-stocked mini-bar.
Breakfasts were ample, fresh and a wonderful way to start the day. Compliments to the friendly and attentive serving staff (Eunice, in particular), who was a joy to see each morning.
Our sons had golf coaching at the Golf Academy and there was no problem in getting a golf cart to take us on the scenic drive there. Thank you to Stuart for being an outstanding ambassador.
The staff across the hotel, spa, golf courses, restaurant greeted us warmly and with sincerity throughout our stay, often by name (!), and this is truly what sets this hotel apart from many others locally and abroad.
We have no hesitation in recommending this haven for golf lovers and others, alike.
