The pool is really nice, but I didnt use it since it was to cold. You pay a little to have your laundry done,... More

Sundown Manor made for a perfect beautiful base from which to explore Cape Town. In fact, it was so pleasant there that some days we didn't even feel any rush to go out. The "Luxury" room we stayed in was airy and spacious, and beautifully decorated. Beds were superb. The breakfast on an outdoor patio was a pleasure. The swimming... More

We stayed in Cape Town for just 2 nights...far too short! Our stay was very comfortable in clean rooms with good beds. Gary, Lindy and all the other staff were fantastic and very helpful. We found the neighbourhood quite safe and could walk to a close restaurant without any problems.

Being in Capetown for our first time, we were apprehensive as we had heard not-so-good- experiences about Joburg' but that was all changed as our host Gary & Lindy including all the other friendly staff members made our stay very comfortable. We found the area safe as were able to drive around till late without any occurrence. Waking up to... More

Sundown Manor's location is ideal for seeing Cape Town. We only had a few days and were able to get around to very lovely sights quite easily. With the extraordinary and delightful service of Lindy - manager, cook, greeter, concierge - we obtained easy directions, help with charging our devices, and all-round good advice. We rented bikes and rode down... More

Gary and his team make you feel at home. Rooms are very nice. Breakfast is very good and the bar facility is also excellent. Nice people and a good neighbourhood to stay in. They are personal and come by to give you tips and a little chat. Recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whether you’re in Cape Town visiting our beautiful city or here for business, 4 star guesthouse Sundown Manor, is the perfect location. Our sunny patio is an ideal spot for breakfasts and evening sundowners and overlooks the large and inviting swimming pool. The area is quiet and well protected from the wind, an inviting setting for unwinding on those relaxing sunny summer days! If you like the outdoors-take a stroll down the Sea Point promenade, swim in the Olympic size swimming pools or climb Lion's Head Mountain that towers in the background. If you are a sun lover, the shopping type or simply appreciate fine food and wine, the buzz of the V&A Waterfront is a 10 minute drive away, as are the famous Clifton & Camps Bay beaches. Drive to the city centre with ease - ideal for that business meeting or trip to Greenmarket Square. ... more   less
