The last few years Madikela Tours have booked clients at the Abbey Manor. We only had good feedback. This time I had the opportunity to stay here myself and I can understand why. It is a beautiful setting, great rooms friendly people and an amazing breakfast. A few practical points may consider wen staying over is that it is not... More

I was looking forward to our stay here after it was picked by our agent and the potential was there but too many missed marks for us which was disappointing. My room (4) was lovely with a nice balcony, generous size and big bathroom. However there were 2 issues with the room - a general smell of mildew when walking... More

Great location with stunning views of Table and other mountains. Found for us by Jen at ImagineAfrica, Abbey gave us friendly and helpful staff, lovely rooms, a smashing breakfast and a great base for our whirlwind tour taking in the mountain, whale watching, Cape of Good Hope, penguins, seals and of course - a wine tasting tour. A short -... More

If you go to Cape Town and stay anywhere besides Abbey Manor, then clearly there is something wrong with you. The accommodations are lovely, the setting at the foot of Table Mountain is stunning, and Judy knows all the best restaurants and shops in town. If there is a more personable owner/manager than Judy in all of the world of... More

This is a wonderful facility and area to overnight and stay. If it wasn't For only street parking I will give a 5* all round. Views are wonderful. With the majestic Table Mountain standing guard behind you and the harbour And ocean views in front.

Location wise almost central of Cape Town. We were given the room on the second floor that faces into Table Mountain and comes with a balcony. Unfortunately we did not make good use of the balcony as the weather was somewhat chilly (we travelled in April). Breakfast was the best and Judy was kind enough to share the recipe of... More

6 of us arrived in Cape Town from Australia, first time in South Africa. Met by our wonderful host Judy at 11.30pm at night after 27 hour trip with wine, something to eat if needed, and warm hospitality. Standard never dropped - Judy and her staff always warm, friendly and very, very helpful - including sorting out issues with cancelled... More

We spent 4 nights at the Abbey Manor in mid-May and highly recommend the Manor! We had Room 1 on the front of the building with a wonderful balcony and table to enjoy the spectacular view of the city and Table Mountain. The room was large, very clean and the beds very, very comfortable! Delicious breakfasts! We found the location... More

Very nice bed and breakfast near Table Mountain in an attractive, safe and quiet area. They serve great breakfasts, and Judi is charming, welcoming and extremely knowledgeable as well as helpful. Strongly recommended!

As we were disappointed with our previous preferred guest house in this part of Cape Town, we tried Abbey Manor. It is a very fine house, set back from the road, and quiet. There is plenty of space of street parking. We had Room 1 and the balcony, with a table for breakfast, had fantastic views of the city and... More
