We attended a wedding on 29 April 2017. The Venue was absolutely amazing. Gardens were beyond beautiful. Food was absolutely 1st class as was the service.
Very 5* Venue and we could not fault one thing. Dress warmly as it can get very cold in the evenings after Sunset.

Off the back of many rave reviews we made the trip out to Mooi River to see what the restaurant at Hartford House had to offer. Previously the stomping ground of Jackie Cameron, Constantijn Hahndiek is now the executive chef and has more than filled the shoes of the his predecessor.

The three course lunch menu offered more than enough choice for each course with the chef coming and introducing himself and giving a background of the menu for the day. He was also more than accommodating should either of our children not find something to their liking on the menu.

The wine list is extensive and yet for the traveler still offers a fair selection of wine by the glass for those not staying on site.

A great experience that we will definitely do again to sample more of Constantijn's creations.

One small setback from the whole experience was that the service was not quite on point and prompt as one would expect - specifically with the drinks service.

The 5-course meals are exceptional, interesting, creative and good value, as are the less complicated meals at the restaurant. Not surprising as the chef is most interesting, knowledgeable, charming and makes great effort.

This is an amazing place you must visit if you like horses, fine food, great wines and a luxurious stay.

The food is precise and delicious. The service is extremely attentive and you can see it is produced with great attention to detail and respect for the quality ingredients. The textures and flavours make the daily new 7 course menu extraordinary. Why not push the boat out and add the adapted wines to the menu. They also pack a punch!

We also enjoyed the stud and saw an impressive home to 900 horses. The room was amazing, the bathroom lush and the welcome is unsurpassed. Not cheap, but extremely good value.
