Lords of the Manor Boutique Hotel

★ ★ ★ ★

The four-star Lords of the Manor Boutique Hotel enjoys a scenic location near Mooi River in the beautiful Natal Midlands of South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province. Situated only 1.5 hours away from Durban and 3.5 hours by car from Johannesburg, it blends modern comfort, and classic elegance with Old World luxury and charm make for an ideal getaway destination. The lush Natal Midlands farmland is home to many dams and streams which attracts avid fly fishers.

The luxurious hotel was bought by Brad Caulfield and Terry Gormley in 2007. Constructed at the turn of the last century, this country mansion offers discerning guests comfort and relaxation in the elegance of a bygone era. After extensive renovations, it was finally revealed as a luxury Boutique Hotel. Set in the stunningly beautiful surroundings of Bergville and surrounded by 25 acres of land with fir and oak trees dating back to 1889, the Manor House at the Lords of the Manor Boutique Hotel provides a beautiful location for conferences, weddings and unforgettable getaways.

The exclusive candle-lit dining room with its open fires and the complementing wood tones of the bar reflect an elegance of a bygone era. The excellent restaurant serves a unique a la carte menu including South African country cuisine and fine wines to match the delicious meals. Inviting and comfortable with gentle background music, this dining experience is a memorable one.

Starters may include mouth-watering Duck Liver Pate, a Pear & Blue Cheese Salad or Prawn Pecorino while dishes such as Norwegian salmon with a herb hollandaise sauce, deboned Loin wrapped in lattice pastry and served with a savoury minted sauce as well as Roast Duckling await the diner for the main course. While the concluding sweet desserts like Chocolate Fondant or Creme Brulee, mean customers must try their best to keep a little space for pudding.
