Magaliesburg Hotel in Magaliesburg
Magalies Manor


In a valley nestled in the Magaliesberg mountain range lies an elegant and gracious country retreat, just 45 minutes from Johannesburg. Magalies Manor is a small but exclusive country establishment, offering the very best of cuisine, personalized service and privacy in a picturesque garden setting. Hidden amongst the abundant gardens, Magalies Manor features beautifully appointed, private luxury rooms graced with sweeping views of the Magaliesberg panorama.

Wine and dine in the private dining room or the terrace room, where you can sample the best of continental buffets, table d'hôte and fine desserts. Enjoy a variety of cocktails, wine and malts, a game of pool, and on a cold Magalies evening, sip port by the roaring fireplace in the bar. In this idyllic setting and crisp mountain air, spend the day by the pool, fish, bird watch, enjoy a walk or a ravine hike, or simply relax and read a book. Team-building activities can also be arranged to complement your event.

  • Up and coming, but best wait a while
    21 June 2016

    We stayed at Magalies Manor for 2 nights in June 2016 to attend a wedding nearby at the Black Horse brewery. Having left our booking quite late, Magalies Manor was our only practical choice remaining. We were hesitant, since we read a number of negative reviews on the state of the rooms, some as recent as a month ago.<div><br /></div><div>On arrival, we were booked into room 3, a classic double. It was immediately apparent that the reviews were correct - the curtain rail was bent and sagging, the walls had plaster damage, the bath mixer wasn't working, the two chairs were old and stained, and the alarm magnetic door sensor came off when we opened the back door. We immediately went back to reception (quite a walk) to see if another room was available, since now we could not arm the (very loud) alarm system.</div><div><br /></div><div>We were then given the keys to room 4 which seemed a lot better. However, the airconditioner's heating function ceased to work sometime at night and it got very cold. The door to the fridge cupboard was broken and off its hinges. The phone didn't work. The very limited DSTV channels were all snowy and mostly unwatchable.</div><div><br /></div><div>My parents booked into room 28 which was around R200 per night more expensive. It certainly looked a lot newer, but also had snowy TV channels and a broken phone. </div><div><br /></div><div>I must mention that some of the other issues mentioned by previous reviewers appeared to be fixed - there was a hairdryer in every room and the garden seemed to be well manicured. </div><div><br /></div><div>Other positives include the service which was great, especially the bar service. The entrance portal is lovely as is the garden, the pool area and breakfast. </div><div><br /></div><div>However, since the place was recently bought over (late 2015) and is still in the process of being improved, I would not suggest staying there until the issues mentioned have been fixed. The price (R1600 per room per night for the classic double) is rather excessive for what you get. </div>
