Oh boy, what an experience. If you are reading this review and considering this hotel, I envy you. You have not yet had all your past hotel experiences overshadowed by Boutique Manolo. I cannot imagine a better place to stay at while in Cape Town. The great service started from the moment we booked the room. They kept in contact,... More

Ive been meaning to write a review for the past 3 years but have never got round to doing it until now. When we arrived in Oct 2011 it was all we wanted. The stay was made perfect from the start by the amazing hospitality from Peter and Leen. They were really attentive to our needs and couldn't have been... More

Wow! We spent four nights of our honeymoon in the penthouse and it was great! Breath-taking views of the city, amazing service, delicious breakfast and an incredible room with the finest furniture. It's close to Kloof street and inclusive of minibar and laundry. Nothing to add to that - it was fabulous.

This B&B is situated in a lovely area of Cape Town, a safe neighbourhood on the hill over looking Table Mountain and Devils Peak. We were greeted by Philipa who gave us the grand tour of this modern, stylish house. A lovely dinning area with a large open fire was the first thing to see as you walk into the... More

We stayed a few days at Boutique Manolo. The place is very charming with a beautiful view of Cape Town and Table Moutain. The service is amazing. Peter, Leen and Philippa are great hosts, always here to help and provide recommendations, book cabs, restaurants or activities. It is truly an unforgettable experience and we do recommend Boutique Manolo if you... More

We booked for 4 nights and had lots of surprises throughout! Firstly, we were given a complimentary upgrade to another room simply because I requested from Peter for World Cup channel beforehand. He upgraded us to a room where the view of the television will be better. The breakfast was prepared by Peter and Leen and we were well fed... More

We have been to some outstanding properties around the world, and Boutique Manolo certainly rates up there in terms of location, style and quality. But that isn't what made this property so special. The attention to the very finest detail, ensuring we wanted for absolutely nothing made this a magical find. Peter, Leen and Phillipa went out of their way,... More

I spent three nights at Boutique Manolo with my girlfriend and definitely did not want to leave! The penthouse was as amazing as advertised, with beautiful views of Table Mountain and downtown Cape Town. Phillipa was incredibly helpful and set up some fantastic dinner reservations for us. The penthouse included several free wines and we arrived home from dinner each... More

We just returned from our holidays in Southern Africa and wanted to share this amazing hidden gem we found online. On the slopes of Lions Head overlooking Table Mountain, Boutique Manolo offers absolutely uninterrupted views over the city and Table Mountain. We started our trip there and we have not had any similar service during the rest of our holiday.... More

High up in Tamboerskloof in a quiet residential area with amazing views of Cape Town and Table Mountain you will find a hidden gem: Boutique Manolo. This small B&B is an ideal base from which to explore Cape Town. The service is very personal and informal, the rooms are comfortable, modern and offer great views. My days started with a... More
