Step through the gate at Fountain Place Guesthouse and enter our secret walled garden of fountains, birds, trees and flowers…
In cooler months, relax in the private lounge of your suite; take a warming rain shower using our complimentary toiletries fragranced with natural Marula & Olive essential oils; enjoy a glass of wine, perhaps purchased from one of our many surrounding wine estates and contemplate your evening meal at one of McGregor's fine restaurants... Return to your suite after a magical McGregor evening, slip into your robes, light the romantic log fire in the bedroom and chat about your wonderful day in McGregor, before snuggling under our warm and cosy, brushed cotton bedlinen and luxurious faux fur throws...
In hotter months take a cooling dip in our sparkling pool, read, relax, enjoy some wine… soothe your soul… chill out under the ancient grape vines and enjoy a sundowner as the heat of the day turns slowly into the cool of an African evening...
Fountain Place is an official, registered, Provincial Heritage Site, built in 1862 and comes with all the necessary, contemporary home comforts required, to guarantee your stay is nothing but enjoyable.
Our two romantic guest suites - bedroom (queen beds - singles by prior arrangement in one suite only) with private lounge & shower room - come with crisp percale bed linen (in hotter months) or warm, brushed cotton bed linen (for cooler months), robes, slippers, a complimentary nightcap with crystal glasses, pillow chocolates and toiletries. Bedrooms have garden views and lounges have private entrances onto the vine-covered courtyard. There are tea and coffee making facilities & a room fridge in the private lounge of each suite.
In summer enjoy that ‘Out of Africa’ feel as you drift off to sleep to the soothing sound of the ceiling fans whirring lazily above you… (rooms stay cool in the heat of the day due to their traditional construction).
In winter electric wall panels, sumptuous faux fur throws and a real log fire (in the bedroom) ensure a cosy and, of course, romantic experience…
Enjoy our optional ‘Fountain Place Breakfast’ at beautifully laid tables, served on fine English bone china, in the vine covered courtyard, while watching the birds play in the fountains. An experience not to be missed! (In winter months opt for our mini continental breakfast basket, placed in your suite, for you to enjoy snuggled in your robe or take a stroll along Voortrekker Street and enjoy a delicious breakfast in one of McGregor’s coffee shops or restaurants.)
