Really enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights last October. Lovely room and absolutely faultless service. Thank you. The afternoon teas were such a nice touch and breakfast was lovely. I would definitely stay here again.

I had high expectations for my stay at MannaBay and somehow they still blew me away. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful with unique decor that manages to be both contemporary and grand while still being comfortable and warm. It's located on the highest road on the side of Table Mountain granting an incredible view of the Mountain and the... More

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
