About Monchique Guest House
Monchique Guest House is minutes from the city, yet miles away in terms of the serene tranquility of our rural surroundings. You’ll find us in Muldersdrift - nestling on the edge of the Cradle of Humankind, a world heritage site. We are readily accessible by well-established roads, only about 40 minutes from Sandton and Pretoria. Lanseria International Airport is also nearby while the popular Fourways shopping mall and Monte Casino resort are less than 20 minutes away.
The Guest House has twelve suites, six luxury suites, three deluxe suites and three standard suites. Each room is equipped with TV, hairdryers, air-conditioning, as well as tea and coffee stations. Three rooms have open fireplaces and under-carpet heating to ward off the Gauteng winter chill. And after a long and tiring day, there is little to beat relaxing in your large sumptuous oval bath.
Many of our guests choose to overnight at Monchique instead of travelling long distances after attending a wedding at one of the many wedding venues in the areas. Not surprisingly, Monchique is also a popular “first night” venue for brides and grooms.
Start your day with a full English breakfast served in our private dining room. Light lunches are also available but prior arrangements must be made for dinners. Alternatively, after a cocktail on your private balcony watching one of our spectacular sunsets, head for one of the many excellent restaurants in the vicinity. One of the most popular is the Carnivore, which specialises in charcoal grilled meats such as chicken, beef, ostrich and kudu, and the Casalinga with its Italian cuisine.
CONFERENCES & MEETING
Monchique is an ideal venue for that much-needed weekend getaway to unwind and recharge your batteries. It’s also perfect for business meetings, indabas or an executive bosberaad. We can organise whiteboards, data projectors and screen.
On a warm day, our pool is invitingly refreshing, or join fellow guests for a drink at our cosy residents’ bar with its open fireplace and superb patio. Alternatively, if you prefer to relax in quieter surroundings, you can do so in one of the two lounges or catch up on some reading or browse the Internet in the Hickocks Library.
