“Fantastic value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

The best place to stay in Seapoint Cape Town, fantastic hosts and geat, staff. Received babulous service, fee parking, free, wifi, lovely bedrooms with ensuite bathroom. Very nice area to walk and run in the mornings if you like exercing you are 300 meters from the beach and if you take a walk in the direction of the mountain challeging hills are waiting for you and beautifull houses and panoramic views of the sea and maintains are available. Nice resraurants are 6 min away if you like walking. And for R550 per person breakfast included best place to stay

What a lovely B & B. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sundown Manor. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home by Danielle. Gary offered his time and expertise giving us sites to see, travel time estimates and dining information. The B & B is located in a nice safe area near the ocean. We felt comfortable walking the Boardwalk even after dark. Our room was very nice, the whole house was so comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff went out of their way to make us a delicious breakfast each morning and accommodated us enjoying it on the patio rather than in the dining room. They also offered a laundry service which we took advantage of and the cost was minimal. We have stayed in a number of B & Bs, Sundown Manor was one of the nicest yet! Thank you to Gary and his wonderful staff for making our stay in Cape Town a memorable one.

We stayed for 3 nights in this elegant and delightful guest house. Gary and his staff were very welcoming - Gary insiting he park our car for us in his car park area behind the house. Our room was extremely comfortable with great bathroom facilities! The lounge was inviting with big comfy sofas and breakfast was good and cooked for you individually.
As others have said - well placed for the Waterfront and getting to all places of interest in town. A very pleasant stay.

When I recently noticed that Sundown Manor ranks 4 out of 7 I thought it deserves a better ranking. I stayed in this B&B in March and was in total satisfactory. In fact I stayed three times during my trip in Cape Town (first arrival by myself, then joined by my son, and then after my short visit to Port Elizabeth). Prior to my arrival, I emailed several times regarding booking and airport transport and Gary always responded immediately and things were settled quickly.
This B&B at Sea Point area is in walking distance to hop-on/hop-off stop, sea front and commercial street where you can get anything you need (restaurants, bank, etc...). We walked to having dinners at different Chinese and Italian restaurants every night and really enjoyed. Originally we thought this B&B is a ltittle far from Cape Town city center. However, we bought two days hop-on/hop-off pass for both Red and Blue lines and we went everywhere including city center. A taxi is convenient too. Cost about 70 Rands (note, even metered taxi may charge differently. choose a taxi with rate explicitly marked on the vehicle body if you can). Or have a plesant sunset walk along the Beach Road (about 40 minutes). Ended up the location was not an issue at all.
Rooms were very clean and elegant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Gary greeted every guest and personally prepared breakfast for them. Very good breskfast.
I had a very pleasant experience with Sundown Manor and recommend this B&B to other travellers.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rooms 3 and 4. These were excellent rooms.
