Great hotel in the middle of a private reserve
The hotel was great! Food and service was nice, and most of the facilities were in great condition. We went on two game drives which were really well run, with very knowledgeable staff. We hope to return one day soon!

Good for first or last night especially
Very close and convenient to Hoedspruit Airport (about 5 min) It’s a big lovely manor type house with rooms in the main house (I think) and another external house, gathering living room type spaces, a nice pool backyard area. I think they are their own smaller game reserve, but we didn’t do a drive there. This is a good place to book just a room w/o drives included for much less. They “dehorn” their rhinos to prevent against poaching. There’s great debate on this subject. It WAS cool to see 4 rhinos at the waterhole during breakfast on the first day of our trip and also first day of 2019. A full 3 course dinner is supposed to be included in nightly rate, but we stayed over NYE & they had a party.... which sounded nice, but instead of a proper dinner, we were just served finger foods (after 2 days of traveling). We were invited to the manor’s NYE party, where we were offered drinks, so we were a bit surprised to get charged for them at check out. The rooms we had were lovely (rooms 3 & 4). we were not in the main house, but in an additional wing. Especially Loved the decor of the bathrooms. We had a family room which was MUCH more space than my son & I needed. There was a living room, a sort of dining room with antiques, 2 bedrooms with comfy beds and 2 bathrooms. The Staff was very friendly & helpful. We loved the tortoise that strolls along the grounds. Great spot for massages overlooking watering whole, lovely & refreshing pool & common sitting area

A great safari base.
Lovely friendly hotel, rooms are a little tired but the staff and location are excellent. We saw animals at the watering hole from breakfast.

Exemplary service, decor, and food. The Manor House, located within the Khaya Ndlovu Reserve, also has the best view in the lowveld. Relax by the infinity pool overlooking the waterhole, take a helicopter ride, or go on a game drive, the staff at The Manor House will see to your needs. We spent the most relaxing Sunday by the pool. Drinks and food were brought to us by Surprise, just one of the well-trained and hospitable staff on site. Our room was tastefully decorated and the bed was VERY comfortable. The Manor House feels like a home away from home. We hoped to stay again on our next trip to Hoedspruit.

Amazing location and warm hospitality
Our only regret was having just one night at this idyllic hotel. The outside areas were stunning and we saw warthogs and impala at the watering hole at sundown. The staff make the real difference here with their warm hospitality, In particular, George really impressed us throughout our entire stay as well as the magnificent chef , Shane. We truly felt like cherished guests

Perfect relaxation on a privately game reserve.
We booked just for an overnight stay because we wanted to be close to Hoedspruit for shopping before going into Kruger. We were surprised that the Manor House is in a private game reserve. Had we know we would have stayed longer in order to fully enjoy the premises which are stunning and do game drives too. They also have a special treat for guests with a rhino interaction. .
