Wow, this review is MAJORLY belated...I really thought I had already reviewed Boutique Manolo because it really was such an incredible spot, with the best hosts. We spent the last four days of our honeymoon here back in October and could not have had a better time. I spent a lot of time doing research about where to stay in... More

After doing a lot of research about where to stay in Cape Town on our honeymoon, we found and settled on Boutique Manolo, which turned out to be the perfect choice. We were just blown away by the view of Table Mountain from our beautifully appointed white room. The neighborhood of Tamboerskloof is stunning with lovely homes just like Boutique... More

I stayed at this property back in August for my honeymoon and this stay left us just without words. If you can afford it, then book the Penthouse - It is just amazing. The views are incredible and breakfast on our private balcony overlooking table mountain just really left us us with wonderful memories. We cannot wait to come back... More

First off the location is amazing with an great view. The problem is for the seasoned and stylish traveler the place is in need of some upkeep and refocus on quality and service. * don't both with the rooms with bathrooms as the plugs take 10 minutes to make work (with the assistance of the manager) as they are fiddly...

What an amazing place! There are so many places to stay in Cape Town that it can be hard to choose but I'm so glad my husband found this little gem! We had stayed in the Hilton for the first couple of nights but we really wished we had found this place sooner as it's superb! We felt extremely welcome... More

We stayed at Boutique Manolo at the start of our trip to South Africa. Staying in the penthouse, we were greeted with an amazing view of Table Mountain from our very large balcony. The penthouse suite is very large with an upstairs living area and downstairs bedroom/bathroom. The stand alone bath gives beautiful views of table mountain as does pretty... More

We have just stayed for 2 nights at the Boutique Manolo and had a wonderful experience. Peter, Leen and Celeste could not have been more hospitable or welcoming. The service they provide is excellent. The hotel is contemporary in style, but does not compromise on comfort.We stayed in room 100 and like other reviews thought the view was amazing. The... More

We have stayed here before, hence the return trip. It was a fabulous as last time, my parents were in the penthouse and loved it, we were in the room with the outside shower and little garden. Loved this room as well. Breakfast delicious unfortunately it was too windy to have it on the balcony. Peter also as fabulous as... More

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful Boutique Manolo it was perfect. We stayed in room 100 and what an amazing view!! The room is very clean and the view is just breathtaking... The Dutch owners of this guesthouse have realized everything into perfection. For example; we came back from a trip on a very warm day and the... More
