We had our wedding reception at the Pure Restaurant and stayed in the hotel for one night. Everything was absolutely perfect and very well organised, and the food was delicious too. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely stay at the hotel. Check in was friendly and welcoming and we were shown around the hotel and to our room. The hotel is aptly called, a lovely manor like building, a quirky mix of modern, Moroccan and antiques. The rooms are nicely furnished with four posters, double or twins. Wood polished floors in the bedrooms... More

We love the hotel décor, especially the antiques (mostly from Private Collection at Die Waterkant) the "shick" rooms and the awesome breakfast. The breakfast coffee is fantastic!! The front desk is friendly and helpful.

We had an amazing time at this lovely Hotel. You cannot stop looking around at the old Colonial style features.The food was so excellent it was my birthday and had to tell the chef personally, he was pleased. It was windy in the bay so we ate in the Mariner, food was great. All the people were kind and friendly... More

One cannot fault the beautiful courtyard or the friendly staff. However my father and I shared a seafood platter in early January and it was very average. The fish was battered or dry and the tartar sauce tasted like shop bought mayonnaise. I have heard so many good things about Pure that I was rather disappointed. I may still give... More

A visit to the area would not be complete without a meal at Pure at Hout Bay Manor.Knowing the size of the portions we skipped a starter. The Main course was as before perfect with many flavours and each mouthful was an adventure. The desert was heavenly and light. Add to this an Elegant setting, attentive and knowledgable staff (...
