What really makes Fancourt is the people. Given the fabulous surrounding mountains and scenery, given the wonderful Fancourt property, hotel, spa, accommodation and facilities - what makes Fancourt top of the pops is the people. Always smiling, always courteous, always friendly and always willing to help, the staff at Fancourt make Fancourt what it is.

No words to describe this place. It is purely world class. My wife, 5 month old and I visited the hotel for two nights. (We had initially booked a seven night stay at another hotel in the area, but had to leave due to poor service). We left after 5 nights. We arrived at the hotel. I felt welcome (even...

Our weekend stay in George was to visit family, so we decided to try Fancourt because of its reputation. We were not disappointed, our one bedroom garden suite accommodation was excellent, modern, spacious and clean. The breakfast was excellent with good service throughout and the food on offer at the restaurants was excellent with a large selection of dishes available....

We stayed for six nights and played five rounds of golf. Virtually everything was excellent. It has much improved since our visit several years ago.

We stayed at the Fancourt with a golf group and it was hands down the best hotel room we had during the whole South Africa trip. It was huge with a private garden and very modern spacious bathroom on the ground floor. I was just a tag-along non-golfer with my partner on the trip so I spent most of the...

We stayed for three nights and were lucky enough to play all three golf courses of the Fancourt Estate. Our favourite was The Links Course, an excellent test of golf for any golfer. We arrived at a particularly busy time as it was the end of a Sunshine Tour event. Despite all the bustle, the staff were very helpful and...
