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.

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
