“Sadly, this place is on its way down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010

The website makei t look like heaven on earth but sadly it turned out to be a dissapointment. There is clearly a finacial problem there and the owner advised us that he retrenched 90% of his staff. It is a pity because the location of the place and the manor house itself is stunning. However, at breakfeast they didn't have x,y and z on the menu plus we were the only people in the hotel. Also its no longer a hotel but now a B&B but unfortunately the website didn't say that. The rubbish which they dumped underneath teh house next to teh pool is also unsightly. The whole situation is very sad because as a boutique hotel, it can be stunning. One thing though the room which we stayed in was beautiful and nothing beats the silence - it really is relaxing.

Stillness Manor is a beautiful historic hotel set in a picturesque location with fantastic views. The staff are all very friendly and eager to make guests feel at home at the hotel and will provide excellent recommendations for everything from restaurants to visit to activities in the region, including wine tours, shark diving, nightlife, golf, etc. The rooms are beautifully furnished and clean. The spa services are very reasonably priced and the staff at the spa are excellent. The only drawback is that you need to have a car as there is no public transportation nearby, but it is a short drive to downtown Cape Town and nearby attractions. The benefit of the location, coupled with the service and amenities of the hotel, is that you feel like you are staying in a private home

The Manor is absolutely fantastic. The property, staff, and owners went well out of thier way to provide a pleasant stay. The rooms are massive and the Spa is lovely. Great food and wonderful service. You will be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable stay anywhere in Capetown,

Stillness Manor and Spa is nestled away from the hectic vibe of Cape Town, but close enough to still feel it’s pulse. Within approximately 15 minutes, you can be at the V & A Waterfront or Camps Bay, where you will find restaurants, bars, and shopping. The resort itself is hidden amongst breathtaking landscape and climbing vines… The staff at Stillness is warm, accommodating and helpful. There was always someone available to help us plan our day and make dining recommendations that suited our mood. Over the course of our 6 night stay, we also had an opportunity to use the State-of-the-Art Fitness Center and the incredible Stillness Manor Spa! Treatments are reasonably priced, the therapists are professional and versatile, and the property boasts three gorgeous swimming pools (indoors and out). Stillness Manor Resort and Spa is definitely worth a visit!

I stayed at this property over a weekend as part of a conference group. It is a beautiful property and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was great with a huge bath and seperate shower. The service was not so great however. We stayed in a room quite a distance away from reception and I had to drag my bag down a path and a few flights of stairs. They didn't offer any assistance or even seem to notice how much I was struggeling. I had a great room service sandwich and the waiter was very friendly. I also booked a massage and the spa and spa staff were wonderful. During the last day of our conference the Front Desk kept on phoning to the conference room, even though we were in the middle of a meeting. It seems that there were only three staff members on duty during the entire weekend - they must have worked from early in the morning to late at night every day. Excellent facilities, but maybe in need of proper management?
