Colourful Manor is a very nice place with beautiful decorated rooms. Very nice view over the sea and the mountains. The location is close to the N2 which makes its easy to travel to cape Town and/or Hermanus.

The guest house is situated perfectly, with a great view towards Gordon's Bay. The pool has lovely seats and - to ease the heat of the day - lounge areas under the tree. The breakfast is good. The rooms - allthough they have modern furnishing - are not perfect. Could have been equipped with either AC or ceiling fan, and... More

We stumbled on this place while trying to escape the nauseating pretentiousness of the Ambassador Hotel and Bantry Bay. Staff: Awesome Location: 20-30 min to over 100 wineries; 40 minutes to Hermanus; 30 to Cape Town and 20 to the Airport. PERFECT This is a very quiet spot with just you and nature for noisemakers.

Great views, lovely pool: but badly designed room. No air conditioning. No ventilation, just had a stand up fan which simple moved to very hot air around the room. The heat blazed in through a huge glass door with a blockout curtain on it that did very little. The toilet had no door on it so we each had to... More

We had a fantastic experience at the Colourful Manor. The staff were amazing and friendly with ourselves and our children. Breakfast every morning was fresh, delicious and met all expectations. I was amazed at how staff and guests all socialize during breakfast hour (i.e. about their tourist experiences, likes & dislikes). This added something of extra special value for me... More

We have visited Colourful Manor ( CM) for the second time in 2 years, again several weeks. CM is very central to all kind of challenges in: Gordon's Bay, Strand, Somerset-W, Stellenbosch, Capetown, Franschhoek and Hermanus ( and don't forget Hemel en Aarde). There is a great hospitality at CM. Very good advises about the activities you could do. CM... More
