Rooms at Fancourt Hotel
Choose between the Classic Rooms or the one or two-bedroomed Classic Suites. Rooms are large and airy with a modern feel and all possible amenities. A number of the Classic Rooms and Suites offer views of the golf course.
One Bedroom Suites
Built when Fancourt hosted the President’s Cup in South Africa, these rooms are more modern than the Garden Rooms and can be requested. They are arranged in blocks of 4 on 2 levels with a private patio area on the ground floor or small balcony on the upper level. Furnishings are modern and crisp with an open plan lounge area.
The Manor House has a selection of exclusive suites that were remodelled in 2011. Located in the heart of the complex, closer to the main public areas, each individually decorated suite has a luxurious bathroom and a small living area. There is a 2 bedroom suite that also offers a private dining area and larger accommodation that is suitable for a family or anyone that wishes to entertain.
There is a choice of four restaurants. Enjoy traditional Italian cuisine at La Cantina, or one of Monet’s lighter healthy meals, such as salads or sushi. For fine dining, Henry White’s serves more formal European style dining with an African twist. The Clubhouse bar offers a range of platters, burgers and pub style food throughout the day.
For our golfing clients, Fancourt offers the opportunity to play 3 different courses. They are the Montagu, the Outeniqua and the famous Links Course, that has been ranked the No. 1 course in South Africa by Golf Digest Magazine in 2018. It used to be mandatory for visitors to stay at Fancourt in order to play the courses. This has changed although the rule still applies to the Links course with a minimum 2 night stay.
It is also a great base to play other courses in the vicinity, such as Oubaai, George Golf Club, Kingswood and Pinnacle Point. Fancourt is unrivalled as a base for South Africa golf holidays, and is a must-play and stay location for serious golfers at least once.
