It's the little things that bring us happiness and Abbey Manor doesn't disappoint. There is a rooftop terrace for spectacular views of Table Mountain and listening to the birds. The rooms are equipped with a fridge and tea kettle with a variety of teas and milk. The daily turndown service includes nougat and a bedtime story. The front lobby is... More

We were the only people at Abbey Manor when we stayed there. The location is up the mountain from the main city. We walked from their to the wharf and it was about 4 miles. As it is downhill, that was fine, but not to walk back! The house is beautiful and the people who run it are very accommodating... More

Abbey Manor is situated inn upmarket but fairly central suburb of Cape Town - reasonably accessible - though as Cape Town is very hilly -the walk down into the centre is fine but the haul up would be quite demanding - best take a taxi - they are very cheap. The house dates from the true of the 20th century... More

The rooms are of a great quality and very clean. The only disadvantage is... More

The place is in a fantastic location. The staff are very friendly, the house is lovely. The pool is a good size but the sun went behind buildings in the late afternoon when we were there. The shower in the room (the best room in the house) was large and great.

My and my husband had a lovely 1 night stay as our first night of honeymoon. The location in Cape Town is brilliant and the owners very friendly and helpful. The breakfast by the pool was lovely. We want to visit again!

This was our first stop in South Africa and what a place. We had the newly refurbished cottage in the garden for five nights and were not to be disappointed.
