Welgelegen Manor is more than a Guest House or Boutique Hotel, It is the ultimate Country Retreat where you are sure to Experience the Exceptional. At Welgelegen Manor you will rediscover the lost art of gracious relaxation in sophisticated elegance that is unique to Welgelegen Manor. “Olde Worlde” country living, in this Guest House, nestled in the Mpumalanga Highveld and just an hour's drive from Johannesburg, is the ultimate in Country Living Guest Houses. From taking tea next to the fire in one of our beautifully-appointed private lounges, to choosing your favourite vintage from our premium wine collection, this Herbert Baker designed haven perfectly captures the spirit of understated luxury and personal attention.

Typical of the days that inspired Welgelegen, the Manor is the embodiment of luxury, elegance and fine living. From beautifully-appointed and decorated suites to grand and sumptuous public areas – Welgelegen is a celebration of abundance, style and attention to every last detail. While the history of Welgelegen is evident from the character and decor of this grand home – every modern amenity has been included for your absolute pleasure and relaxation.

Maintaining the personal feel and ‘guest in our home’ atmosphere, accommodation is offered on a small scale; hence booking well in advance is advised. We have two Twin Suites and six King-size Double suites

When you’re not busy discovering the beautiful vistas and rolling hills of the region – enjoy the amenities and facilities at the Manor and in the grounds of Rietbult. No expense has been spared to ensure your experience truly lives up to its promise of ‘Experience the Exceptional’ and the facilities include a Bar and Pool Deck – Relax and enjoy a drink with view of forever. A TV Theatre – A unique installation of large-screen viewing and theatre-style seating. A Billiard Room – A perfect way to end off the evening or while away a lazy afternoon. For the more energetic, practice your swing on our new Golf Driving Range or challenge your friends to a game of croquet on our immaculate lawn.

Wine Cellar – Welgelegen is renowned for its stunning wine cellar that houses a host of fine vintage wines. Select yours to enjoy with the fine dining experience offered at the Welgelegen restaurant.

Picnics – On request, we will happily pack you a delicious, luxury picnic hamper ready for you to take off for the day and discover the amazing, unspoilt countryside around Welgelegen.
