We serve a full English breakfast.

We serve a full English breakfast. There is a selection of yogurts, fruit and cereals to start. Then we serve a plated main course consisting of tomatoes roasted with basil, mushrooms sautéed in rosemary, bacon, sausages and eggs. There are always croissants / muffins, coffee / tea and fruit juice. The main course does vary slightly when guests stay longer than one night.

Come and enjoy country hospitality where you can enjoy a swim in the pool or river, have a braai or sundowners at the pool and deck area overlooking the river and rolling hills, and catch a glimpse of the Drakensberg.

What people have said about Waterford Manor

Excellent hospitalty. Lorraine is a very great host, made us feel at home. Breakfast is to die for, delicious, healthy, balanced and great presentation. Stunning pool and braai area. The easy access to the Mooi River completes the tranquility of this guesthouse. We recommend this guesthouse.

Mbuyie & SiceloHappy CustomerMillermedia

We had 4 fabulous days and nights at Waterford Manor and were made to feel like old friends rather than guests.The rooms both self catering and B&B are very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for a meandering trip around the midlands and the the gardens are well kept with a stunning view across the river.We would not hesitate in recommending Waterford Manor as a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely be back in the near future.
