Landed late at Cape Town International after some flight problems and having no prior booking. Drove straight to Gordon's bay to search for accommodation. One phone call later and we were helped at a very late hour. Stayed over just one night but everything was perfect, including friendly reception at late hour. Good service, breakfast, secure parking, views, location. Will... More

Our family room was very large, spacious and comfortable. It had a little kitchenette and small 2-person's dining table which made it seem like a studio flat. There is limited outdoor space for kids to play in though. Location was excellent, so close to the beach.

Stayed in a upstairs room with a beautifull see view and the air-conditioning made us forget about the winter weather. We loved the bath and shower, nice to have n choice and both were roomy. Last but not least was the wonderfull breakfast,... More

I recently spent a night at Manor on the Bay in Gordon's Bay. It was a dark and stormy night and we were welcomed with a warm fire and the offer of a warming hot drink or Sherry. The room was very comfortable and there were lots of extra blankets and pillows if we needed them. Breakfast in the morning... More

I enjoyed the service especially spacious rooms and their cleanliness. Internet was pretty fast and breakfast was super cool. Only Tv channels were limited. You can reach me at martinbusingye@yahoo.com

Nice spot in Gordons Bay. Booked two See view rooms for Family with two teens, on arrival we were shown to a Single family suite which will probably be good for Parents with small kids but not suitable when traveling with older Teens. Wi Fi poor and TV poor to non functional. Room need some TLC i.e. broken toilet seat,... More

We stayed overnight at the Manor on the Bay, whilst travelling around the Western Cape. The room was delightful, spacious room and bathroom. Everything was thought of that you might need.
