My Wife and I spent 4 nights at this OUTSTANDING ACCOM this month. From arrival to departure nothing was an issue and the Breakfast and High Tea are 'to die for'. The outlook over Cape Town is outstanding by day and intoxicating by night (plus the view of Table Mountain at the back is not too shabby either). To the... More

I cannot find the words to describe our stay at Mannabay other than spectacular. The views of the city, the beautiful rooms, the food and the service far exceeded our expectations. The personalized service made this one if our best holidays ever. We would not hesitate to revisit or recommend this boutique hotel.

This is a perfect base for Capetown. The hotel is small. Very personal service. There are very few requests that can't be granted. We had such a grand stay. Mitch and all the staff deserve all superlatives. A nice way to start our African adventure. Bravo!

For our recent trip to South Africa, we used the services of a travel agent (Icon Expeditions) for almost all aspects of the trip except international air. They put this place on our itinerary. After reading this hotel's website, I was a little worried it might be too fancy for our generally down-to-earth travel tastes, what with high tea and... More

Best place to stay in Cape Town! Wonderful suites, yummy high tea, and best view of Cape Town, especially at night. The staff could not have been more attentive. A taxi service was provided free of charge for wherever we wanted to go.

We travel a lot for work, but this hotel made it into our top hotels straight away. It was honestly perfect in every way. Firstly the building is absolutely stunning. The layout and decor - we were just... More

Can't say enough about this place. We just stayed there four nights and were amazed by everything - the room, the building, the service, the food, and the decor and art. We took the advice of Mitch and the rest of the staff on what to do, restaurants, and shopping and it was perfect. The attention to detail is incredible,... More

Our first visit and it was exceptional! Stunning views of Cape Town at front and Table Mountain in the back garden! Service exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. Afternoon tea was spot on. So friendly and attentive without being OTT.
