This little gem is in the perfect location for singles, couples, families or people here on business. The train is nearby to get anywhere in Cape Town (reliable and affordable too). 2 streets up, you can find clothing shops, restaurants and pubs. I found it quite safe to walk around in Obz. Vic, the owner, is a great help with... More

The manor house is a B&B located in the Observatory Area of Cape Town. It offers a really nice launching pad for families interested in having some additional space (without renting multiple rooms in a hotel) and visiting the Cape Town Region. We were there during Easter week which coincided with the 2 Oceans marathon - the house was full.... More

We stayed there five nights, at the beginning and end of a work trip. Vic and Trish are wonderful hosts, serving an excellent breakfast and useful advice. They know the everthing about CT and offer the best cost-saving options for tours and sight seeing. There is a train stop within a 5 minute walk to take you downtown (just a... More

We stayed here 3 nights. We had most of the rooms booked in the main building by our group. Each room is unique. Mine had a double bed and a twin. Private bathroom with shower. The beds are super comfy and the bedding is top notch. Crisp clean sheets. It was quite cool while we were there so there are... More

Our group of 12 travelers stayed with Vic and Trish at their beautiful guest house...Luther College has had many groups stay here, and all have had great experiences. The breakfast is great, the rooms are wonderful, and the back apartment gives a chance for people to just hang out, cook a meal, and relax. Good access to everything. Vic is... More

I really appreciated the warm hospitality shown me. Vic and Trish, the owners, were extraordinarily helpful. The bed was exceedingly comfy. I really appreciated the tea and biscuits on the table and the beauty of the garden.

We had a wonderful stay at Koornhoop Manor, centrally situated in a quiet road in Observatory, it was perfectly positioned to visit all parts of the Cape peninsula. Our room was large and airy and everything spotlessly clean. Vic and Trish were fantastic hosts and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. We stayed here on recommendation and... More

We spent Christmas 2010 and New Year 2011 in and around Vic & Trish's place. We had visited some 16 years previously so we had a good idea of what to expect. This visit was even better, lovely place that met all our expectations, they are fabulous hosts, nothing seems to be too much for them, organise car hire, vineyard... More
