Nestled at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains, The Manor House, with its contemporary-meets-historical architecture, its stark white walls, elegant furnishings and breath-taking views, has perfectly encapsulated a national monument with a 5* hotel.
Situated on the Fancourt Estate, it is the perfect location for a discerning clientele looking to combine comfort whilst exploring a region within South Africa that is world-renowned for its beauty and hospitality.
If you need convincing, here are five reasons why you should stay at The Manor House situated just outside of George on the famed Garden Route:
1. It’s a historical site!
Built in 1859, The Manor House was originally Blanco house, the family home of Henry Fancourt White. The crown jewel of Fancourt Estate, this residence with 18 private suites is equipped with a bar, a library, a private swimming pool and epitomises elegance, romance and sophistication.
2. Romantic and intimate
Recognised as Africa’s Best Romantic Boutique Hotel and staffed with a personalised butler service means the only thing guests need to do is get there! Stylish and sophisticated, The Manor House offers guests a five-star experience. Only children over the age of 16 years old are permitted.
3. Preferred access to The Links, privately-owned club
Golf is the lifeblood of Fancourt. With three award-winning 18-hole golf courses – Montagu, Outeniqua and The Links, a privately owner club, – it’s easy to see why. Guests of The Manor House have preferred access to The Links, the number one golf course in South Africa. For many, it’s a life-long dream to tee-off where local and international greats have played.
4. The food is everything and more
Home to the award-winning Henry White’s restaurant, prepare yourself for a sophisticated dining experience filled with the flavour of locally sourced ingredients that will make this culinary journey truly unforgettable.
5. The Garden Route, the Garden Route, the Garden Route!
Using The Manor House as a base, set out to explore all the surrounding Garden Route has to offer. Ranging from botanical tours to shark diving, horse riding to meerkat safaris, game drives to wine tasting – all can be arranged for you from The Manor House (just ask your personal butler!).
The Manor House is an oasis of luxury, where no request goes unmet, and where no detail is overlooked.
