Fabulous friendly and helpful staff made our weekend away feel like we were 'home from home'! Lovely suites with large walk in shower with attention to detail - every boxed ticked for us. Great breakfast served by Sharon and Patience was a cherry on the top. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

We have been coming to South Africa from the States for 5 years now with a group of students that we take out to the Karoo for a field camp and needed a place to stage our trip. We happened on Morningside and things have worked...
