Each of the twenty suites at Victoria Manor are distinctly unique; some convey the nostalgic magic of the Victorian era, complete with harps and four-columned poster beds; others are decidedly more contemporary in their style. The curving balustrade, the dark wood finishes, the woven carpets, comfortable period furniture and even the confiding hotel Dalmatian – all of these ingredients combine together beautifully to create a hotel of the bygone era. The juxtaposition of Victorian grandeur and modernity extends throughout the Manor. One minute you are walking through the classical Billiard Room and the next minute you are walking out onto a private heli-pad. Sticking to its South African roots, the garden features its very own dedicated Braai area where one can enjoy a traditional South African barbeque. The guesthouse provides a wide range of breakfasts every morning, while lunch and dinners are available on request.
A short drive from Queenstown, or the ‘Rose Capital of South Africa’, this small manor places an emphasis on the manicured beauty of the region, with its own expansive and well-maintained garden. If you would like to see the real South Africa, behind the intricate flower arrangements and pristine lawns of Victoria Manor, then Lawrence De Lange Nature Reserve is at hand. Backing onto Queenstown, the reserve is an easily accessible hiking or picnicking destination where you can view springbok, rhinos and impalas to name but a few.
