“PEACEFUL”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I recently spent a weekend at Sundown manor, its peaceful, clean and fresh. Lots of attractions close by and a lovely walk on the Sea Point promenade. Friendly staff. Well recommended. The outside rooms open up to the blue pool. It is close to some shops in the area.

Room Tip: the outside roomm overlook the pool

we were sent here at zero notice when our flight was grounded by fog! a charming guesthouse only few mins walk from beach and near the tourist bus which was great for a whistlestop tour the next am. gary the owner and all the staff could not have been more accomodating in every way. lovely rooms were spacious,clean and beds very comfortable. excellent breakfast, friendly and attentive service. we were pretty stressed on arrival but it was all made very easy and advice offered on what to do and where to eat. would recommend to anyone. shame we didnt have time or weather to enjoy pool and balcony.

Very friendly welcome, spotlessly clean, great breakfast and wonderful location.
Very secure parking.
We will definitely return.
Love the fact that it was only a 5-minute walk to the beach, the restaurants and the shops.

This accommodation spot was advised to us by accident, what a jewel very central and absolutely stunning accommodation, Gary and his loving wife were very friendly and we had a wonderful stay at there establishment, they have interns working part time for them and we had the great honour and privilege to have met Rickie from Germany who seems to always have the best ideas of where to go for the day, and what to see and do, We also recommend all gay couple's who need a break to use this accommodation spot as you feel as comfortable as you would at home here, once again thank you all at Sundown Manor for a most extra special stay at your establishment and making our honeymoon one to remember for ever thanks Peter & Barry Haupt-Schmidt

Ricy has gone back to Germany, and we have a new intern working here.
She also enjoyed your company very much.

We hope that you are having loads of fun in Canada at the moment, and when you do return to South Africa, that we will see you again!

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely B&B while on business in Cape Town recently. Gary and his team were welcoming and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable, neat and clean. And the breakfast served on the terrace is a wonderful spread, catering for all tastes. The B&B is conveniently located just a short walk from the Sea Point promenade and the main road, which has a variety of shops and restaurants to choose from. It really does feel like a home away from home and I would definitely recommend it and plan on going back myself.

Dear Robin,

Thank you very much for writing this review on TripAdvisor.

It was a pleasure hosting you as well, and we thank you for your lovely comments about our facilities.

I must agree that Sundown Manor is the perfect guesthouse for business ladies traveling alone to Cape Town.

The area which we are in provides security and safety and at the same time it gives the feeling of being at home.

We would love to host you again, next time you travel to Cape town for business.

I hope that you had a chance to explore our beautiful city too while you were here.

Have a lovely day,
Kind regards

We have started our trip to South Africa here and it met fully our expectations. Clean accommodation, nice room, very nice stuff, Linda very helpful with good travel suggestions. The location near sea promenade, beautiful place to admire sunset and not far away from Waterfront, Table Mountain, Camps Bay. Perfect start point for trip to Cape of Good Hope. Fully recommended.

Dear Ewa,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review on TripAdvisor.

We sincerely appreciate your comments.

I personally love Cape Town and try to explore everything I can when I get the chance.
I then tell people about those experiences only once i have done them myself.

I am happy that you got to enjoy all the things I suggested.

There is still so many things to do here, a holiday will be never enough.

We get to see beautiful sunsets on a daily basis, and we are happy that you enjoyed it here.

Many thanks once again, and we hope to see you again soon at our guesthouse.

Kind regards
