Arriving after 2 nights spent in airplanes, 9 hrs of jet lag & 30 hrs of travel, we were greeted by our... More

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.

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

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.

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
