We stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon, prior to going on Safari. The staff was amazing. The food was amazing. The room was amazing. Even the other guests were amazing. I cannot say enough good things about MannaBay. The actual hotel is a little hard to get to, and we found that some taxi drivers wouldn't know... More

We spent 5 wonderful, words-can-not-do-it-justice nights at this hotel. It is superbly managed, gorgeously decorated with warm modern flair, and so guest friendly. The breakfast was fantastic, and every time we asked for sightseeing suggestions, the staff hit a bullseye. The website is mostly spot-on in showing how beautiful the property is, but even the website does not do it... More

The most stunning place you can stay at in CT.. each room is beautifully unique and the staff are amazing. You will get the best treatment and service around! They also do a lovely high tea with champagne and yummy cakes baked daily, and their breakfasts are delicious. Nice touches all around the hotel-jars of sweets, free cappuccinos and relaxing...

This is a wonderful hotel always on the list of the top properties. Tremendous views of either the city below or table mountain above from most rooms. Great service. Couple of small negatives, the pool is not heated, and their is no mini bar in the room for that late night sparkling water. There is a small gym and a... More

This hotel does not seem to be well known among locals, but it must surely be the best hotel in Cape Town. It is situated at the foot of Table Mountain, looking down at the city and habour. My wife and I spent a night in the Black and White room which was extremely comfortable and spacious with bold decor... More

We stayed at the beautiful MannaBay boutique hotel for the first two nights of our honeymoon. We were totally spoilt by the staff and treated like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had whatever we needed. The breakfasts were scrumptious, the afternoon tea just delightful and the location just...

We stayed in the Orchid room and it is beautiful with a view of table mountain that will take your breath away. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine just watching the clouds drift over the mountain was fantastic. But the thing that makes MannaBay so incredibly special was the attitude and service of the staff. They do... More

Our recent stay and ManaBay was perfect. The staff was inviting and professional. The breakfast was delicious. Everyone was eager to help make arrangements for local attractions. I highly recommend this beautiful property. I wish we could have stayed longer.
