We have visited here bi annually for a few over 10 years now, for some reason this was the best visit. Rooms were right up there with the best I have ever stayed in!! Service was excellent. Wi-if perfect. Played The Links, 10/10 this course is one of the best in the world. Played The Montugue next day, excellent course!...

We stayed here as an overnight stop along the Garden Route. As a result we didn't fully use the facilities. It does revolve around the golf. Facilities and service were excellent. I should think this would be a beautiful spot for golfers

We arrived in a downpour which did nt show off this superb complex at its best, but when the sun shine in the morning we saw it in its full glory. Great facilities with three excellent golf courses, which for us the main purpose of the visit. The Links is very challenging, but the other two courses are good for...

From the moment we drove through the lovely gates this was a tranquil haven. The service is outstanding wherever you go, the rooms are beautiful and the linen immaculate. The rooms are huge. There is jogging routes around the golf course. An amazing place. I can recommend it.

Had dinner here over the Christmas period. Service was slow and our waitress forgot lots of our order. She seemed very in experienced. Food was ok, but with all the wrong sides and steaks not cooked as requested. Nice atmosphere and lonely bar,maybe we hit it on a bad night..

We stayed 3 nights at Fancourt in a lovely big room, but a hotel of this standard should have twin sinks in the batroom, if I'm being ultra picky! The food and wine in La Cantina was good but the staff were wonderful, we wished it had been our birthday just because of the singing for the lucky birthday boy....
