“A Gem of a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stayed one night at Capeblue Manor House and it blew us away. The suite is huge and luxurious as is the ensuite bathroom. Within moments of arrival, I was already full of regret that my booking was for one night only and my wife wanted me to cancel the next few nights accommodation to stay on in this beautiful place. Breakfast was phenomenal.
Michelle and her partner paid attention to every little detail to make the suite luxurious and comfortable - huge luxurious bed, coffee machine, minibar - couldn't ask for more..
Beautiful courtyard to chill out - fantastic hosts - we'll be back.

At some ungodly hour I pressed the bell at Cape Blue Manor, an angel answered my call and hope for a room; it was the owner Michelle !
I had moved into our house some 5 klms away and I was unable to sleep due to Mosquitos! I had to get out and find a peaceful repose. With Michelle's help I did. I stayed three nights as she was fully booked thereafter. I did not sample breakfast as I had to return to work early. My loss I think.
The room was well appointed spacious with all facilities. I can heartily recommend this hotel and its caring owners.

Great stay here, awesome room, lovely view, super close to the beach, such warm and obliging hospitality.
Little pool under the mountain was delightful in the morning. Got great advice on local eating establishments from our friendly hostess.
Breakfast was tasty and plentiful.

I stayed at Capeblue after a horrendous experience at another guesthouse!

The decor is stunning, perfect location and Michelle was an excellent host. I will be back!!!!

The beds were brilliant and the bathrooms divine.
