We loved our stay at this very nice guesthouse! It is situated in a beautiful and peaceful part of the Town, just below the magnificent Table mountain. The service is excellent and the staff is friendly and big-hearted.

Our first visit to South Africa and we could not have wished for a better place to stay than the Abbey Manor. Dirk the owner and all of the staff were wonderful from booking tours to advice on restaurants etc. We stayed in the room that adjoins the garden and swimming pool for three nights retuning later for one more...

My husband, myself and our toddler just stayed in this wonderful guesthouse in capetown (about ten minutes drive from the V&A Waterfront). Even though our little girl was the only child there they made her and us feel extremely welcome. The breakfast was delicious, the room divine and the staff so helpful. We will return again. Absolutely delighted we found... More

This was our first visit to Cape Town and our experience at Abbey Manor was brilliant. The staff are so helpful and friendly, showing us where to go and booking restaurants for us. The breakfast was delicious. The room itself was very comfortable and we appreciated the little private balcony. It is a quiet part of the city but only... More

For the fit, previous reviews are fair. However, there are 29 steps without any handrails from road to entrance and over 40 more to the attic room. (No lifts) This guest house is not suitable for those with knee problems. We were not given any prior warning ( ie in their web page) nor help or sympathy when faced with... More

Our recent visit to Abbey Manor was very disappointing given the high level of recommendations. We returned from a day out to find all our personal belongings had been removed from the garden room to an attic room up four flights of stairs without our knowledge or consent. The room was required for other guests with mobility problems, given the... More

Cape Town is one of our favourite cities and on our 4 previous visits ŵe have stayed at Abbey Manor . It was 2 years since our last visit and I have to say that under the new management of Dirk and his team the standards are as high as ever . We stayed in the bungalow in the garden... More

The Abbey Manor guest house is located at the foothills of table mountain and has amazing views of the mountain and down over Cape Town. Our room was lovely, really bright and spacious with contemporary decoration, we were also lucky enough to have a balcony where we could sit out and admire the views. The staff are all lovely, friendly... More

Obviously we love this home from home with excellent staff - even though Judi was away- we had Anya who was wonderful. We had great weather and relaxed in the gardens, ate great food, had stupendous views of the mountains and bay, If you din't know Cape Town this is the only place to stay

Abbey Manor is a wonderful old house, well adapted as a B&B. I stayed in room 5 with views of the mountain. I arrived on a very windy night and was a little alarmed at the gusts coming in the windows which might have been more of a problem had it been cold. The room was very comfortable, breakfasts delicious... More
