Stayed at Fancourt for 3 nights as part of a tour of South Africa. First taste of South African hospitality and it wasn't found wanting. Does boast 3 golf courses, but Fancourt isn't just for golfers. Accommodation comprises numerous single storey and double storey properties with large comfortable rooms in beautiful grounds. Staff and food all excellent. There are also...

Stayed for 4 nights as part of a golfing tour of SA and played the Montagu and Links courses. Our room was on the first floor but staff very helpful in getting luggage there.

Perth, Australia
Reviewed 7 February 2016

Fabulous hotel with excellent attentive staff and superb amenities. The three golf courses are a highlight and the Links course can only be played if you are a hotel guest. Food at the hotel was excellent and very fairly priced. Excellent service from the portering staff delivering guests and their golf clubs to the three courses.

Our first stop on our first trip to South Africa was for several nights at this top quality location. Our Junior Suite was excellently laid out and furnished.

The surroundings are superb with corresponding...

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
