About The Manderson Hotel and Conference Centre

A warm welcome awaits you at The Manderson, 3 Star Hotel and Conference Centre, situated at the base of the forested Amatola Mountains, 7 kilometres from the town of Stutterheim.

We offer a choice of Deluxe Rooms and Junior Suites set in a pristine garden as well as the Shoe Box Cottage and Manderson Suite which offer an extra touch of luxury. All rooms include en-suite bathrooms with separate baths and walk-in showers, coffee and tea-making facilities, direct-dial telephones, satellite televisions, wall heaters and electric blankets. The veranda and wooden deck extending to the edge of the swimming pool offer magnificent mountain views and is the perfect place to enjoy a light meal, recline on a pool lounger or to sip sundowners while daylight fades.

In the morning we serve a full English breakfast and thereafter offer light lunches. In the evening the restaurant offers a table d'hote menu, served in our candlelit dining room. The menu changes daily with a choice of two starters, two main courses and two desserts, which may be complimented by your choice of more than 25 different wines. Our pub has a great atmosphere and offers a wide selection of alcoholic, as well as non-alcoholic beverages. 

Our lounge is a luxurious and welcoming space. During the winter months the ambience is complimented by a roaring log fire. Browse through our permanent art exhibition or settle down with one of our wide selection of books available.

The Manderson has become a popular venue for conferences, training seminars, presentations and product launches. Amahlathi Conference Room can accommodate 90 delegates, the Amatola Conference Room accommodates 50 and the Boardroom accommodates up to 15 executives with a touch of luxury. All three venues are specifically designed and built for conferencing purposes. Conference centre equipment is available.

Other services and amenities include a laundry and valet service, packed lunches and picnic baskets, baby cots, babysitting, a spouses' programme for conference delegates, and a business centre offering secretarial services. All credit cards are accepted and there is open or covered parking in safe surroundings.

While at the Manderson enjoy the myriad of activities available in the area. The indigenous Xolora Forest offers superb forest walks, birdwatching, mountain biking, horse riding and boldering. Gubu and Wriggleswade Dam are in close proximity to the hotel and activities there include bass and trout fishing, and sailing.

Conference Venues: The Amahlathi seats groups of 35 and more while the Amathole seats groups of 35 and under. Both venues were specifically designed and built for conferencing purposes. Ideal for conferences, training seminars, presentations and product launches.

                          What a lovely stay we had at The Manderson this past weekend. The staff are very friendly and have such lovely smiles. We loved the electric blankets, so nice and cosy.  And my girls said that the bacon at breakfast was just the best!  Thank you for a wonderful stay.

                          I had a good experience at The Manderson. It was very clean and neat. The host was also very friendly and accommodating. I recommend them to others. I will make use of the Rooms for Africa website again because it is user friendly.

                          After a long day's travelling the neat, clean, and friendly environment was just what we needed. The food was well prepared and the staff really professional.
