This was a great place to stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and the owner was hands-on and very approachable. Our rooms were spacious and clean - both ensuite. Very good value for money. Although a few miles from the centre of Cape Town the taxi ride was only about £6 each way which was worth paying for the...

As is the key to any good hotel, the service was superb and nothing was too much trouble. Sundown Manor is in a safe area, walking distance to the sea and various shops and restaurants. The rooms are lovely (personally i preferred the rooms downstairs - there were 2 levels), the pool was handy and the breakfast was excellent. Highly...

We enjoyed staying there. it is a central location to discover Cape Town. A few restaurants just a couple of walking minutes away. The breakfast was great and the room was also nice. No complains at all. It was clean and the staff helped with everything you asked for.

Sundown Manor is in an excellent location in the Fresnaye area of CT, just 2 blocks from the beachfront. The room we were allocated was huge, with the most comfortable bed I think I have ever slept in! Breakfast was comprehensive,and the honesty bar is a nice touch if you fancy a little drink on the terrace before bed. We...

Gary has created a very nice place to stay at a reasonable price. Rooms were simple, but comfortable and very clean. Baths were large and again very clean. Breakfast was a typical self-cater spread with eggs and bacon on order from the onsite cook(s). Location was convenient to downtown and Camps Bay with good restaurants in walking distance. Highly recommend...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whether you’re in Cape Town visiting our beautiful city or here for business, 4 star guesthouse Sundown Manor, is the perfect location. Our sunny patio is an ideal spot for breakfasts and evening sundowners and overlooks the large and inviting swimming pool. The area is quiet and well protected from the wind, an inviting setting for unwinding on those relaxing sunny summer days! If you like the outdoors-take a stroll down the Sea Point promenade, swim in the Olympic size swimming pools or climb Lion's Head Mountain that towers in the background. If you are a sun lover, the shopping type or simply appreciate fine food and wine, the buzz of the V&A Waterfront is a 10 minute drive away, as are the famous Clifton & Camps Bay beaches. Drive to the city centre with ease - ideal for that business meeting or trip to Greenmarket Square. ... more   less
