I had a wonderful experience. The view of the beach was so beautiful and the location of the Manor made it so easy to find good food close by. I didn't like the selection of TV channels, they were too few.

Beautiful setting and friendly service. Hot breakfast had very limited choices. People who don't eat bacon don't really have another meat option to choose from. Conference venue not suitable for more than 10 people. We were 14. The space was very tight and limited space for the facilitator to move around.

Dear Petro, thank you for taking the time to write a review for us on Tripadvisor. Thank you for your feedback. We have experimented with various meat options at breakfast ( beef sausages, salmon etc) but these options has never been very popular. I will trial them again to make sure. It will be good to have a non-pig (... More

We stayed at Manor on the Bay with my 6 yr old Daughter in the Family room and it was Amazing. The room was huge with great bunk beds which was the highlight of my daughters day! Service was super and the lounge with the fire was cosy and delightful! Would definitely recommend this Hotel and will Definitely be returning!

We enjoyed excellent service during our stay from all personnel, particularly Noeleen and Marisha. We stayed in room 1 that is a stone's throw from the beach and enjoyed our quiet 'out of season' 4-night stay. Our accommodation was spotless and comfortable. We would have liked a 2nd arm chair. Constructively speaking a side table by the arm chair would... More

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.
