Unbelievable location - so quite and safe; with the fantastic overview of the sea. Very friendly atmosphere. Being close to most of attractions, citi and the mall, it's situated in the isolated place surrounded by nature. The only inconvenient thing is the absence of wifi which can be found only at the lobby room

Recently we have visited the Colourful Manor for the second time. This year we were there in the second half of March and the weather is then not as hot as in mid summer. Colourful Manor is an excellent place to explore one of the most interesting parts of South Africa. It is close to the airport and Capetown at... More

“Quality by a personal touch” We stayed at Colourful Manor for 12 days based on other’s recommendations and it was even better than our expectactions. Colourful Manor is located in the middle of it all. Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Hermanus, the winelands and even ideally located for Capetown, especially for the Cape Peninsula tour. Colourful Manor pretends to be a relaxed place,... More

Great location just outside Cape town. We have been doing lots of sight seeing from there, the location is very central for that. Within a short distance there are really nice restaurants with great food and wine, we really enjoyed that. The rooms are very clean, simple but decorated with elegance. Breakfast is good, swimming-pool area is nice for a... More

We recently experienced a magnificent stay at Colourful Manor in a splendid seaview room. Daily personal attention by Paul, Marjolein and staff to optimize our holidays. They made reservations for beautiful golf courses and lovely restaurants we would not have discovered ourselves in a short span of time. The location is great to explore Cape Town, wine estates and coast... More

We spent two nights at the Colourful Manor. We just arrived in Capetown and Colourfull Manor was an easy 30 minute drive from the airport. We had a seaview suite. And the view was fantastic. They have a great lounge for drinks or breakfast with an really easy feel to it. The owners Paul and Marjolein are great hosts! Paul... More

We came to this place because we had seen positive reviews. The location is nice with beautiful views but our room was rather disappointing. I found the room rather uncomfortable and colorless. There was no window you could open and during the day the heat was unbearable. Our room was exposed to the full sun for the whole day and... More

We were looking for a nice accommodation for our first night in South Africa, coming from the airport on our way next morning to Botlierskop Reserve. We enjoyed it very much. From the first email contact until we left, everything was perfect. We had two rooms with a connecting door, very clean and very nice decorated (with candles for the... More

The rooms in Colourful Manor is extremely clean and tastefully designed. The room is spacious and so is the toilet. The hosts Ellen and Jurgen are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is near (as in, assuming you are driving ) to Stellenbosch, Gordon's bay and Franshoek. There are also two huge shopping malls nearby! Breakfast prepared by the hosts... More
