MannaBay was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Their rooms are immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Our room - the Black and White - had the best view of the city imaginable! From our patio we could see the entire city of Cape Town in front of us and nothing behind us but beautiful Table Mountain.... More

- Best hotel experience I've ever had. - The facilities are amazing. - The rooms are gorgeously decorated. - The view of Table Mountain was ridiculous. I was in the Oriental Room which had a huge glass windows that viewed the whole mountain. - They provided everything you could need...including a hair straightener! - The high tea at 4pm everyday...

I cannot begin to describe how awesome this hotel is. The staff and atmosphere is so warm that it feels more like a home away from home, rather than a hotel. Food is great. Staff are the most accommodating I have ever met. The locale full of beautiful scenery. Fantastic. Simply Fantastic.

We spent the week at Manna Bay and it was a week of heaven. The staff are brilliant and always make sure your every need is catered for. The rooms are spacious, elegant and thoughtfully decorated. The breakfast and tea are world class. I would highly recommended Manna Bay when staying in Cape Town for business or pleasure!

I spent the nigjt with my partner, a birthday celebration of epic views, finer touches and a suite to make most other hotels green with envy. The Mannabay team pulled out all the stops to make the experience unforgetable. Afternoon tea is a treat and breakfast is worth the trip up the mountain to just have the homemade muesli. The... More

We stayed at Mannabay in Capetown for four nights and this was one of the all time best places we've ever stayed. We didn't want to leave! Gorgeous boutique hotel with exemplary service -- every butler is so kind and thoughtful and we particularly loved getting to know Shadrack! The decor is fabulous and the food is five star.

I don't even know what to say. Amazing rooms, astounding views, unbelievably friendly staff--who truly seem to care, not just because it is their job. The rooms are each differently decorated, and mine was huge and wonderfully appointed. I have traveled extensively worldwide for work for many years, and I have never encounter such delightful, pleasant people running a hotel.... More
