About Morrells

Morrells is a very special and unique space in the heart of Northcliff, From the moment you walk through the gates you are enchanted by the beautiful olive grove and enveloped by the smell of lavender and roses, feeling as if you where in the south of France.


Morrells Manor House as well as Morrells Boutique Venue epitomises the essence that makes French Provencal so charming. Lavishly spacious, each suite exudes warmth brought alive by accents of colour drawn from the surrounding landscape. Wooden floors and light-filled rooms lend themselves to a relaxed atmosphere. Masterfully chosen antique furniture is seamlessly integrated with modern comforts. Comfortable luxury is epitomized by the extra length beds enrobed in ultra soft bedding.

This old-world charm never ceases to capture your attention as eloquently placed orchids draw you into a sense of wonderment.

Situated on the Morrells estate amidst neatly trimmed gardens, stands Morrells Farmhouse built in the late 1800’s by the early Dutch settlers. This was the first house built in Northcliff, a then dairy farm, which has now been lovingly restored by Mike and Bernice Morrell into an elegant retreat with seven beautifully decorated en suite bedrooms complete with the original wooden floors and pressed ceilings. Morrells Farmhouse exudes vintage charm of a bygone era.

Breakfast & Dining

Sumptuous meals are all served in the homely dining room typically reminiscent of the countryside in Auberge. Allow the personalised five star service and onsite butler to translate your ultimate expectations of luxury. Morrells Manor House welcomes you home.
