The guest house is situated perfectly, with a great view towards Gordon's Bay. The pool has lovely seats and - to ease the heat of the day - lounge areas under the tree. The breakfast is good. The rooms - allthough they have modern furnishing - are not perfect. Could have been equipped with either AC or ceiling fan, and... More

Although we understood the concept of the rooms, we couldn't enjoy the 'coolness' of the cement-like - almost bunker - rooms, which we thought lacked in finishing, warm touches. Even furniture was sparse, which was a pity.

This guest house offers a simple modern style luxury with awesome views There is a nice pool area to relax in between busy golf or excursion days. Beds are excellent and breakfast at 08.30 is very good, but may be a bit late for early starters Phantastic support from the owners. If you are not well known in the area... More

We stumbled on this place while trying to escape the nauseating pretentiousness of the Ambassador Hotel and Bantry Bay. Staff: Awesome Location: 20-30 min to over 100 wineries; 40 minutes to Hermanus; 30 to Cape Town and 20 to the Airport. PERFECT This is a very quiet spot with just you and nature for noisemakers. The dogs (who barked from... More

Great views, lovely pool: but badly designed room. No air conditioning. No ventilation, just had a stand up fan which simple moved to very hot air around the room. The heat blazed in through a huge glass door with a blockout curtain on it that did very little. The toilet had no door on it so we each had to... More

We had a fantastic experience at the Colourful Manor. The staff were amazing and friendly with ourselves and our children. Breakfast every morning was fresh, delicious and met all expectations. I was amazed at how staff and guests all socialize during breakfast hour (i.e. about their tourist experiences, likes & dislikes). This added something of extra special value for me... More

We have visited Colourful Manor ( CM) for the second time in 2 years, again several weeks. CM is very central to all kind of challenges in: Gordon's Bay, Strand, Somerset-W, Stellenbosch, Capetown, Franschhoek and Hermanus ( and don't forget Hemel en Aarde). There is a great hospitality at CM. Very good advises about the activities you could do. CM... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Colourful Manor. We rented the self catering cottage which was very comfortable and stylish. The kitchen can be better equiped though; if you love cooking the available materials are very limited and of bad quality. Gordon's Bay is a great location, and the staff is very helpfull and knows a lot about the environment.... More
