I booked my room 2.5 months in advance. They deducted the deposit the same day. I arrived to find that my room looked nothing like the photo's they use for marketing. The room was small, poorly furnished, had no air-con or fan, no TV and no fridge and all round very unappealing. The bedroom had no window, only a sliding... More

The people was very friendly. Breakfasts were good. View amazing. The room was an disappointment. We didn't have the nice view I expected. A small fridge would have been nice as they do not serve lunch or dinner. No fresh drinking water in the room. No soap in the shower. No TV or radio. Towels not very nice. This is... More

We had a very friendly welcome from the Owner himself. The tranquility at the lodge was just what a couple needed. The peace and quiet, perfect. Breakfast was awesome! I was totally inlove with the room we were in. Anytime again i will definately go back. Thank you Colorful Manor on a great stay.

We loved our stay at Colourful Manor and were greeted and treated with warmth over the entire weekend. Breakfast was awesome - even had an egg white omelet made for me special. Definitely a place we will recommend to others. Thanks guys.

Colourful Manor is a wonderful mix of modern colors and a homy style. We specially liked the self catering cottage with two separate bedrooms, a spacious living, well equipped kitchen and your own terrace. The views and garden of this friendly guesthouse are great. Imagine the home made breakfast on the deck, a glass of wine or whisky to see... More

What a special place to stay! Waking up in the morning to a panoramic view of the sea, immersed in the mountains, smelling pure air and experiencing visual freedom, wide open views and tranquility of the surrounds... Amazing! Thought and attention to detail has been emphasized, quality finishes in the bathroom, good water pressure and lots of natural light enhanced... More

Very lovely and helpful people. Perfect place for those who wants to ride the bike. Just 20 minutes away we found fantastic MTB trails to ride around Grabouw in the morning and afternoon relaxing by the pool and enjoying the scenery. Amazing! Sea view rooms are huge. Just missed a fridge in the room.
