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.

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

Colourful Manor is a very nice place with beautiful decorated rooms. Very nice view over the sea and the mountains. The location is close to the N2 which makes its easy to travel to cape Town and/or Hermanus.

The guest house is situated perfectly, with a great view towards Gordon's Bay. The pool has lovely seats and - to ease the heat of the day - lounge areas under the tree. The breakfast is good. The rooms - allthough they have modern furnishing - are not perfect. Could have been equipped with either AC or ceiling fan, and... More

Beds are excellent and breakfast at 08.30 is very good, but may be a bit late for early starters Phantastic support from the owners. If you are not well known in the area... More
