Today Fancourt is a world renowned business and leisure destination. The Fancourt Hotel is a fine blend of modern luxury and classic elegance which offers accommodation that caters to every taste. 115 luxurious bedrooms and suites are all fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay as comfortable and unforgettable as possible. "Blanco House", the 150 year-old original Manor House and National Monument set on the 613 hectare Fancourt Estate was meticulously remodeled to create a boutique hotel that offers old-world, new-world and out of this world beauty and elegance. The Manor House offers a unique combination of classic opulence and the indulgent sophistication of a 21st century boutique hotel.

As Africa's leading golf resort, the property boasts three Gary Player-designed championship courses, including the world renowned Fancourt Links. The estate recently converted its national monument, the Manor House, into a luxurious boutique hotel. Fancourt has a holistic spa, three restaurants and many indoor and outdoor leisure facilities on-site. Retail options include a gourmet deli & cafe, exclusive women’s boutique, jewelry store, real estate office and two pro shops.

The heart of Fancourt is now the modern clubhouse, but the old Manor House will always hold its soul. When you visit the estate spend time in the stillness of the reading room, appreciate the gardens and walk along the quiet passages. Imagine life as it was then, with Panama hats and buttonholes, grand pianos, campher-wood kists, antique silver and wild mushroom dinners.

Within the Manor House the Montagu Bar and Library enjoys a quieter, historical feel with wooden-shelved walls housing modern and antiquarian books. A large selection of whisky, cognac and liqueurs are kept on hand to tempt even the most serious reader. An original fireplace forms the center-piece of the library with large leather wingback chairs and a writing desk adding to the ambiance.

Set aside an afternoon to indulge in the grand tradition of high tea in the Manor House Garden and Tea Lounge which is situated in the center of the Manor House. The menu changes on a daily basis however guests can be sure to find Gateaux of the day, sliced tea loaf, pastries, fresh scones with clotted cream and finger sandwiches on the menu.

Old world charm and contemporary luxury link the graciousness of the past with the convenience of the present to create a haven of tranquility and style.
