                          We loved staying at Morning Glory Cottages, everyone was very friendly and helpful.Marenee is an excellent host and the food was wonderful. Special attention was paid to dietary needs and care taken in presenting each course. This was our first visit to South Africa and really enjoyed our conversations with Marenee and Lynette. Would highly recommend a visit.

                          Beautiful farm with very luxurious accommodation and most welcoming hostess.The food was outstanding - we had the braai picnic basket and there was so much food ! Farm fresh bread, delicious home-grown salads and they are very happy to discuss which meats you prefer.The horses are gorgeous, and its a very convenient place to stop over.Thanks so much - we were very very impressed!

                          Die kamer was 5 ster, die etes was nog beter. Ons kon nie beter kry in die omgewing nie. Die eienaars is vriendelik en nou betrokke. Ons was aangenaam verras.

                          The rooms far exceeded our expectations, and the hospitality was OUTSTANDING! A fantastic attraction is the location, being on a racehorse breeding farm. If you love horses, it is indeed a privilege to interact with and watch these amazing creatures!
