We spent two nights at the Colourful Manor. We just arrived in Capetown and Colourfull Manor was an easy 30 minute drive from the airport. We had a seaview suite. And the view was fantastic. They have a great lounge for drinks or breakfast with an really easy feel to it. The owners Paul and Marjolein are great hosts! Paul... More

We came to this place because we had seen positive reviews. The location is nice with beautiful views but our room was rather disappointing. I found the room rather uncomfortable and colorless. There was no window you could open and during the day the heat was unbearable. Our room was exposed to the full sun for the whole day and... More

From the first email contact until we left, everything was perfect. We had two rooms with a connecting door, very clean and very nice decorated (with candles for the... More

The rooms in Colourful Manor is extremely clean and tastefully designed. The room is spacious and so is the toilet. The hosts Ellen and Jurgen are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is near (as in, assuming you are driving ) to Stellenbosch, Gordon's bay and Franshoek. There are also two huge shopping malls nearby! Breakfast prepared by the hosts... More

The lodge has a beautiful sea view and the rooms are spacious and clean. Its home away from home. The dining room was tastefully done with a beautiful view of the sea.

We stayed at the Colourful Manor recently for 7 nights. It is an excellent guest house with modern and well equipped rooms. The hospitality of the owners is excellent and makes you feel very comfortable staying there. The area is great if you are looking to explore more than just the usual Cape Town. Highly recommended!
