The Hout Bay Manor, built in 1871, is renowned as one of Cape Town’s most graceful landmarks. The recently restored Hout Bay Manor offers 16 individually designed en-suite rooms and a sophisticated EAT Restaurant, protected by century-old oak trees, was built from stone (600mm thick walls) and in traditional Cape Colonial style by Jacob Trautmann on an unspoiled piece of land, which had previously been part of the Kronendal Estate.

Quirky and a bit crazy with fabulous rooms and great food. The service is second to none and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is a highlight - delicious buffet with amazing fresh fruit and homemade mueslis plus the hot choices were to die for. We will definitely be back!

The hotel is very nice as well as the staff. The receptions always helped immediately. To the negative points: The breakfast stuff is very slow and twice i had do stand up to get them. The breakfast buffet is very weak. The dinner therefore is very good.
