After 3 visits at Mountain Manor over the past year, I must compliment them on a first rate guesthouse, perfectly situated with high quality care and detail found in the rooms. Every time a refreshing experience!

We stayed at Mountain Manor in January after leaving our pre booked guesthouse due to the appalling attitude of the manager. Mountain Manor was totally different from that place. It has lovely rooms, a great location and friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Cape Town.

Thank you for your kind review and I think that you took the sun with you when you left!! Its wet and rainy (but I guess it is winter now) so the fires are roaring and the red wine is flowing. Hope to see you again in the future. More

I Have enjoyed my 8 visits to stay at Mountain Manor apartments. Friendly staff, pleasant rooms. The location makes all the wonders of Cape Town accessible. The balconies on the front apartments and wonderful for relaxing and enjoying the air of Cape Town. The rooms don not feel like hotel rooms, they are homely and comfortable. The pool is a... More

Be aware - we live in the City.

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.

Unfortunately I am completely unaware of what we are talking about here, but pretentiousness isn't what we offer. We offer home from home accommodation - you have varied kind of rooms with varied rates to choose from - from small to large rooms. standard to Superior spacious rooms and even a Back Packers lodge for the more cost conscious Guest....

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 am sorry that you had such a poor "people's" experience at Mountain Manor. We hired new staff in October and teaching the necessary 'people's" skills does take time - we are so sorry that you felt invaded in our space. It has all been "trained in" now and we have a super bunch of friendly, attentive staff. We hope... More
