We stayed 3 nights in Colourful Manor. The views of the mountains are great. The view of the village and the sea is mediocre. Our room was big, but tired. No table to put our suitcases on. Some of the bedlinen had grey paint on it, towels were worn out and had holes in them. Although we pointed this out,... More

The people were lovely and when I addressed my concerns with them the owner did half the bill but I flet he would still do nothing to correct the faults. I have visited S Africa 16 times and this was the poorest Guest House I have... More

Lovely spot, friendly hosts and beautifull rooms! Everything is modern, well equipped and the rooms are spacious. The Dutch hosts always made sure everything was well taken care of. Above average breakfast with fresh fruits, eggs etc.

Best view, and great location close to wine lands, sea and Cape Town. I loved the approach road to the Manor, a real African feeling. Great luxury, modern rooms overlooking stunning pool. We will be back.

Lovely lodge with beautiful views, amazing setting, when the wind drops its so tranquil and the sunsets are just amazing. A short drive from Gordon's bay so you have everything you need close by. A great location for visiting the wine regions. Restaurants close by that we enjoyed were thirsty oyster in Gordon's bay-pub food, sweetwell farm stellenbosch again pub... More

Highly recommended, friendliness of each individual employee, the size of the room and the bathroom was good It was a great place for city breaks The breakfast was great, but I would recommend that you hire a car since there is no public transport around that area it's much cheaper than hiring taxis

Absolutely fabulous settings for a guesthouse. The rooms were very spacious and the numbering was rather unique.Definitely has huge potential but there needs to be some changes made inorder for the place to rated higher. I was a bit disappointed that there was no door leading to bathroom hence no privacy if two people shared a room, a window pane... More

We stopped by on the way to Cape Town airport to spend the afternoon at the Manor - what an amazing place! I wished to have another day of holidays left to actually stay there ... My favorite place is below the tree by the pool overlooking Gordon's Bay
