Colourful Manor was a first a bit difficult to locate due to its slightly remote location but what an experience once you get there...
The room was great with a fantastic view and enough spaces to spend a full week, despite the fact that we only stayed for a night.
It is a great central location if you are to visit the coast and sightseeing spot around... We made the mistake to book hotels along the trip when we could have spent our time at the Colourful Manor.
This said, we'll for sure go back and spend a longer stay in this great venue...
Thanks to our hosts and for the great breakfast and advices...

We arrived after a long journey and the place was very easy to find and quite convenient to Cape Town airport. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic and the owners extrememly friendly and accommodating.

Thanks to Paul, Marjolein and Riaan (Orion Stables) we had a beautiful stay at the Colourful Manor. Rooms are very spacious, decent and peaceful. We had the three day horseback riding program at Orion Stables organized by Riaan. Every day he took us to another place (mountains, coast, winelands), so we got never bored of it. Horses are healthy en well groomed. Lunches included at for example Waterkloof were amazing!
Thank you for taking good care! Wish you the best!

Colourful manor is situated in a prime location in Gordon's Bay. The amazing views of Strand and Gordons bay are making the spot special. Because it is very centrally located is it easy to go to the several 'must sees' in the area. Don't miss the wine estates in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, The botanic garden(s), The Whales and the great (star)restaurants nearby. We loved the warmly greetings by the hosts. They made our stay unforgettable within all the advice and help we needed.

Room Tip: I would recommend the sea view rooms.

With hotels in the winelands being so expensive we decided to look a little further and found Colourful Manor. The rooms are well presented & furnished with great views & the hosts were very friendly and helpful. It also gave us the opportunity to explore Betty's Bay, buy some great pottery & enjoy the lovely botanic gardens. Waterkloof restaurant did not disappoint and the scenery on the drive to Franshhoek was spectacular.
