                              We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect and the hosts were super friendly and always smiling. Not forgetting the unit we stayed in was super awesome. I will advise this place to everyone to stay at Waterford Manor, sit back and enjoy the fresh air, Mooi River at your door. Beautiful hiking trails and convenience of many places within the area for many activities. Chocolate heaven very close to Waterford Manor best choc in the world! Do yourself a favour and book a stay at Waterford Manor, you will not regret it.

                              We had a fabulous 4 nights at Waterford in a superb and beautifully furnished room. We were treated as old friendsrather than guests and were given a free reign to wander the grounds which were immaculately kept with along lawnrolling down to the river. For a peacefull and tranquil weekend with the midland meander at your doorstep I have nohesitation in recommending Waterford Manor as the place to stay.

                              We had a lovely time in the Midlands, a true hidden treasure with tons to see and do. Waterford Manor also a true gem with attention to detail, friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms. A very romantic setting. I would however recommend a heated towel rail as our towels were damp in the evening and comfy bath sheets.

                              With such lovely rooms and welcoming staff, it will make your stay just as fine as mine was.

                              The setting of the main house was lovely. The couple managing the site were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately The room we had was small and cramped with a very hard bed and a tiny bathroom all of which needed some updating.
