Hard to describe what this hotel is... The reviews are already a good evidence that this is the place to stay in Cape Town. Amazing room, staff and food, everything perfect, even for those that are used to hight standards hotels and services!

My boyfriend and I travel a lot and after spending a few nights at Boutique Manolo in Cape Town, I simply had to write a review. This place is amazing! From the moment you enter till you leave, it is like spending a nice time with friends in a stunning house and views and the service is in such a... More

Following a 'busy' cricket tour to Cape Town, Boutique Manolo proved ideal for winding down: located away from the bustle of the city centre, it is quiet & luxurious with excellent views of Table Mountain and super-efficient staff. Two very pleasant surprises: a wet room with two (!) showers and a mega-breakfast that kept me going well into the afternoon.... More

We stayed 4 nights in this spectacularly located guesthouse in Capetown! Great beautifully designed rooms, huge breakfasts and top service! The views are breathtaking, we stayed in room 100, and so close to the city yet very quiet at night and comfy beds! Will definitely return if visiting Capetown again!

We spent two nights in The Penthouse at Manola and we were certainly rewarded for spending the extra. We were fortunate to crack possibly some of the very best weather we have ever experienced in Cape Town. Waking up to the view of Table Mountain and enjoying a night cap on the terrace are memories that will endure (star gazing... More

Our stay here was one of the highlights of our trip. This is a fancy personal home (think Hollywood Hills mansion) that was turned into a guest house, perched on a steep hill in Tamboerskloof with absolutely incredible views of Table Mountain and Lionshead. My wife and I arrived on a rainy day after an arduous 30 hour journey from... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Boutique Manolo and we have had a wonderful experience. The room we had had beautiful views, it was very very quiet so we could have a real good sleep-in. The service was really good with excellent tips and you feel they genuinely want to make you happy and see the best things Cape Town... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights and everything was impeccable. Boutique Manolo has only five rooms and so we chose Room 100 on the basis of the large open plan room, seating area and the balcony looking at Table Mountain. Our friend chose 200 which was smaller but equally luxurious. The guest house is in a funky area... More

My girlfriend booked the accommodation during our trip, and I was so amazed by our first stop in Cape Town, at Boutique Manolo, that I wanted to write a review. I travel a lot for business and stay often at the best hotels around the States, Europe and Asia. The hotels are normally much larger, so this is the first... More

Home from home is such a cliche, but Peter, Leen, Sarah and Philippa do such a good job of making you welcome and comfortable that it's easy to forget you're just passing through. The hotel is immaculate, with the most stunning views. Personal touches abound and all concerned show a genuine interest in making sure you make the most of... More
