About Foster’s Manor Ostrich Feather Palace

Foster’s Manor (Ostrich Feather Palace), build in 1904, is an establishment of South Cape TVET College. Charles Bullock, the great British sandstone architect, was the creator of the building. James Alexander Foster, a local attorney, instructed Bullock to design a double-storey mansion for him. Foster called the mansion ‘Rus in Ubre’, formally known as Foster’s Folly and later renamed Foster’s Manor.

The Manor is a National Monument and has recently been restored to its former glory. It has eight en suite guest rooms, is three star graded and offers bed and breakfast as well as conference facilities.

In room facilities include:
• Mini bar
• Coffee/tea making facility
• TV (Selected DSTV and SABC Channels)
• Aircon
• Gas heater

Guests will experience a culinary array of flavours mingling on the cold and hot breakfast buffet served in the dining room. Although we do not serve dinner we can make dinner reservations at excellent nearby restaurants.

We hope that we will have the pleasure of making your acquaintance real soon.

                  Big room size, town centre location and great breakfast.

                  It was a wonderful stay. My mother who is totally obsessed about history and old houses loved it. Massive bedrooms, fantastic staff, yummy breakfast and a surprise car wash :) definitely worth a visit!

                  Effortless checking in and out, even though we arrived really late and left long before sunrise. Staff also arranged a packed breakfast for us, since we missed the included breakfast. Enormous rooms and old world charm. The house itself is in need of renovation, but everything is clean and comfortable. Location super central.

                  The house is fantastic and hopefully it gets fully restored to its former grandeur.The room was ok and needs a small upgrade, The bed was a bit small and hard, the TV definitely needs upgraded as does the tea and coffee facilities. Would have been better to have a small fridge for guests use and not as a bar facility. Quite noisy late night and early morning not sure if it was the security or people in the street. Breakfast was very good
