Colourful Manor is a wonderful mix of modern colors and a homy style. We specially liked the self catering cottage with two separate bedrooms, a spacious living, well equipped kitchen and your own terrace. The views and garden of this friendly guesthouse are great. Imagine the home made breakfast on the deck, a glass of wine or whisky to see... More

After taking the scenic R44 into Gordon's bay, we thought nothing could wow us even more. How wrong we were.... What a wonderful and peaceful place. Just what we(romantic couple) needed. Marjolein co-owner, welcomed us with a smile, made us smile until our departure. Modern rooms, comfy bed, Free Wifi, magnificent view, lovely patio, excellent staff. And when you like... More

What a special place to stay! Waking up in the morning to a panoramic view of the sea, immersed in the mountains, smelling pure air and experiencing visual freedom, wide open views and tranquility of the surrounds... Amazing! Thought and attention to detail has been emphasized, quality finishes in the bathroom, good water pressure and lots of natural light enhanced... More

Very lovely and helpful people. Perfect place for those who wants to ride the bike. Just 20 minutes away we found fantastic MTB trails to ride around Grabouw in the morning and afternoon relaxing by the pool and enjoying the scenery. Amazing! Sea view rooms are huge. Just missed a fridge in the room.

Beautiful backdrop of Gordons bay in the distance. Nothing could really be faulted, but I wasn't blown away. The bathroom is open plan and when you shower the whole bathroom gets flooded which is quite inconvenient. Little extra touches were noticed like a couple of different attachments for the hairdryer that was a nice touch.

We spent two weeks in this lodge and enjoyed our holiday. The owner is very friendly and we felt like we are home far from home. Paul and his wife (the owner) gave us some usefull hints where to go and what to do. The room was comfortable and very clean and the view from the terrace was stunning. Fazit:... More

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

Colourful Manor was booked on my behalf and i was disappointed with the property. 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.
