During todays lunch at ‘Pure’ we complained to the waitron about our food: the tepid, soft chips, the deep fried fish that wasn't crisp, the 'ciabatta' sandwich that turned out to be a soft, lightly toasted white roll with the texture of cotton wool. He told the restaurant manager about our complaints and we were compensated with tea/coffee plus a... More

We have visited Cape Town many times and have stayed at the Waterfront. We decided to stay in Hout Bay this time and chose the Hout Bay Manor. It is a beautifully appointed hotel. The service and facilities are outstanding. Thank to all the staff that made our stay relaxing. We believe this hotel is under-rated and we will recommend... More

Lovely Hotel, excellent cocktails. Their Restaurant Pure must be the finest and most elegant food in the area. The menu and prepared food burst with unusual flavours. Valentines night was brilliant , food and even dancing was amazing and Romantic. Anybody visiting Hout Bay and not eating here is missing a lovely experience.

The Hout Bay Manor is a lovely hotel just off the main street(s). Welcoming and in excellent decorative order, the staff meet you outside the hotel and help with parking and luggage. The check-in was simple and the rooms as lovely as I remember them. The shower / bathroom is great, the shower feels like you are in a rain... More

We have not stayed in the hotel part but use their dining & bar facilities frequently. The staff are excellent & the décor is done with lots of authentic African pieces giving it a quality atmosphere & feel. Great place for sundowners & they usually have some sort of happy hour specials be it tapas or drinks. Pleasant courtyard to... More

We “bought” a night’s stay at the Houtbay Manor Hotel at a charity auction event. With a hectic travel schedule it took us nearly five months to find a suitable date for our stay and in the end that date also posed a problem as we were invited to attend another event later on. I was under the impression that... More
