Great place to relax ....no airconditioners in room...no shower curtains..causes a big mess in bathroom. Water all over and no drainage for water. Causes bad smell and you walk in water all the times while in the bathroom..the basin is 30 cm to high and my girlfriend could not reach . Very small towels . Rooms are clean and the... 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

At the end of March I stayed at Colourful manor for the second time. On return I truly felt like part of the family. This is the wonderful, warm, friendly and very accommodating welcome one receives on arrival and right through your stay. Paul and Marjolein are very professional in everything they do and the establishment is very tastefully decorated... More

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

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
