I stayed at Mannabay Hotel with my wife during a Congress in Cape Town. The rooms are outstanding, the service always friendly and the products on the breakfast buffet, the high tea or in between were always of best quality. If you need a ride to the waterfront or an information, the team at Mannabay makes it work. We felt... More

We came to Cape Town for my 70th birthday and stayed at MannaBay, what a fabulous place this is, it's better than most 5 star hotels with a 6 star service. It had every facility you would require, our few days stay was not long enough!! The staff were more than obliging and could not do enough for you, nothing... More

We came here as part of our honeymoon. The staff were friendly and very helpful; always willing to arrange anything we asked for. Breakfast was a cut above what you get at larger chain hotels, and the restaurant recommendations were perfect!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our holiday and what a wonderful start it was. Service is definitely high on the priority list here. I emailed before we arrived and an early check in at 12.00 was no problem. We were greeted by 3 people as we pulled up and our luggage was whisked away. We... More

We recently stayed at MannaBay for 3 nights during our trek across S. Africa. We had an absolutely wonderful stay. We stayed in the Black and White room which had an amazing view or the city especially wonderful at night, and our balcony had a nice mountain view. The property was gorgeous. There were plenty of choices for breakfast and... More

Beautiful hotel with the most wonderful staff for whom nothing is ever too much.. Fantastic rooms and astonishing views of the city especially at night where the city lights are like something from a movie. Being right on table mountain creates a surreal feeling of awe. Honestly the best hotel I've ever stayed at. Gorgeous pool, gym and everything is... More

Best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I've travelled a heck of a lot. It's a small hotel with only 8 rooms, I believe. Every room has a different theme (ours was the Persian Room) but they're all stylish and likely as comfortable as ours, which overlooked the pool and Table Mountain and was gorgeous. The staff are attentive... More

We stayed in the Black & White Room on our first night which had a city and sea view. Our second night was in the Orchid Room with a mountian view - and a very clear... More

Spent 4 nights at MannaBay in late September, and I have to say that it was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. It is an extremely luxurious place up the hill toward Table Mountain in Cape Town. It has great views of BOTH Cape Town and Table Mountain. The rooms and the common areas are tastefully decorated...
