If you are looking to share with cockroaches, a large rodent and enjoy service/attitude from the Fawlty Towers school of hotel management, then this is a must! My two young sons & I stayed in room 18 of the self catering accommodation during February . Broken toilet flush on arrival, which took several attempts over 3 days by the plumber... More

This was our fourth stay to Mountain Manor Guesthouse. There are plenty of more elegant places to stay in Cape Town, buth this guesthouse has its own charm. Friendly staff, nice rooms, and a private pool area where friends can relax. It is simply very nice!

This B&B offered a great location, however, the offerings of amenities were limited. If you are looking for insulated rooms, great food, and cable....go elsewhere! Basic amenities in 3 star establishments are offered here at an additional price! Nice staff but a tacky pretentious atmosphere. You have to offer goods to be considered posh...especially when theft occurs in "locked" bedrooms.

We had a great, comfortable 5 night stay. Situated in Oranjezicht, a 20 minutes walk from city centre, the Mountain Manor is a beautifully renovated old colonial house. Staff is welcoming and very friendly, our room downstairs was spacious and clean, the pool area is lovely and relaxing. Though the guesthouse was fully booked during our stay it was never... More

This b&b is the most disappointing accommodation during our trip. We were glad we stayed only two nights. The room was nice, it really was, but one of the bulbs was broken which we asked to be fixed at check in. They could have checked before check in. IT took 3 hours for them to replace the bulb. At breakfast,... More

I stayed at 17 Breda Street for a month in 2013. I got a single room on the ground floor, it was spacious, clean and it had everything I needed. MM got a good garden, pool and excellent place for recreation. I love to recommend it to anyone who is visiting Cape Town and wants to live in the city.... More

I travel a lot and stay in many places and most are of exceptional quality. I rarely write bad reviews, and I would rather let things sort themselves out. However, I was the guest of an international group who had booked me into this establishment and I feel that they did not get their money's worth for this guest house... More

Dear Roger Thank you for your recommendations and I am sorry that we did not get to meet. Unfortunately when there is a 'manager' in charge and a full time maintenance man - I would expect immediate attention to all problems but it seems that this has not happened. This manager has left us and I have no idea which... More

We stayed in a self catering "Suite", which was spacious, clean, comfortable, with all necessary kitchen utensils. The place is well located, at walking distance from Long street. As a plus would be free wi-fi (there is but you need to pay), given the price of the rooms...
