No words could be enough to describe the best hotel experience we’ve ever had. From a couple (on honeymoon!) who’ve travelled most of the world that’s not an accolade that comes lightly. We blew the budget to stay in the Versailles room, do the same. It’s not just a room, it’s

Dear wirelesskev, Thank you for the incredible accolades. We are delighted to know that we had a part in making your Honeymoon so very special. I have no hesitation in saying that our Versailles Suite has to be one of the best bedrooms in Cape Town. We can't wait to welcome you back to your little slice of heaven! Warm regards, Stretton and the MannaBay team.

Our gorgeous room looked onto Table Mountain. The terrace where we enjoyed daily high tea overlooked Cape Town all the way to the ocean. The level of service and courtesy from all the staff, including the hotel manager, was unparalleled.

One can not begin to describe (1) the views, (2) the staff, (3) the accommodations, (4) the food .... and did I mention the drink and vibrant friendliness? The overall feeling was "what more can we do for you". Thank you for helping make our stay in S.A. so warm and inviting.

We stayed at the Manna Bay on our last night in Cape Town and my only regret is I wish we found it earlier in our stay so we could spend more time here! The building itself is absolutely gorgeous and affords stunning vistas of the city, as well as great views of Table Mountain

Hi,do any of your rooms accommodate 2 adults and a child of 11? Thanks.
I didn't see any children while we were there; not sure if they have a policy, but perhaps not the ideal hotel for bringing a child. The rooms are fairly big, though, so if they have a roll-out it would fit in some of the larger ones.

Hi, August is still considered Winter in Cape Town and the weather can be cold. Unfortunately, our pools are not heated, so we cannot guarantee that a swim in the pool will be pleasant. However, if you are looking to warm up, we have a steam room available to our guests in the gym 24/7. Hope this helps - let us know if you have any other questions.

"Check the website. Each of the eight rooms has a different decor and personality."
"Depends on where you want to look -- either Table Top mountain which is pretty glorious or an unimpeded view of the town."
"Ask for a room on the front of the hotel so you get a view of the city"
"Rooms at the front have views of the city; rooms at the back view Table Mountain"
"Flamingo room"
