“Excellent rest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

I recently stayed at Manor on the Bay as a treat for myself. I enjoyed an excellent stay. The room was awesome and the dip in the pool was great to cool me down. The service was top class and the breakfast was really something. If you are wanting a break I would highly recommend the Manor on the Bay.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front are cooler. The ones at the back may tend to be warm on a very hot day, and a...

This was our first time passing through Gordon's Bay and and we were lucky enough to stumble upon Manor on the Bay. They were very helpful directing us where to go and visit during our time in South Africa. Not to mention the breakfast was the best I have had so far! We will definitely recommend Manor on the Bay to anyone who is going to be around Gordon' Bay!

This is a superb product right on the beach in a secret under rated area outside Cape Town. Gordons Bay is 10 minutes drive to wine farms, 5 minutes to a beautiful coastal drive, and only 40 minutes from Cape Town airport. The place itself is better value than most cape town centre based, camps bay, or seapoint based products, way safaer, way friendlier on the pocket, and we walked to dinner and felt very much like we were in a remote coastal village, rather than near a mgea city. ideal for families, honeymooners, and ven business men wanting a break from the usual rat race of the Cape Town city centre.

Room Tip: Rooms 11 and 12 have the best views and are secluded and private

We selected Manor On The Bay because of its location and excellent reviews. It is a lovely hotel with beautiful gardens and views over the bay. Free parking (inside the premises) and WiFi, delightful breakfast, and excellent service made our one-night stay very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
