                  We loved staying at Morning Glory Cottages, everyone was very friendly and helpful.Marenee is an excellent host and the food was wonderful. Special attention was paid to dietary needs and care taken in presenting each course. This was our first visit to South Africa and really enjoyed our conversations with Marenee and Lynette. Would highly recommend a visit.

                  Such a welcome oasis halfway to Gauteng. After a long ride the clean and spacious cottages allows one to put your feet up and rest in comfort, while the amazing dinner they serve at Morning Glory takes away the worry of making dinner after a long day of travelling. The setting of a stud farm rounds off the experience. Our second time at Morning Glory and it just seems to be getting better.
