“Treated like royalty”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

I cannot remember receiving such good service from every single staff member. Nothing is too much effort and they think of everything. Staff took a lot of trouble to make sure we are comfortable, everything from the welcome coffee, the high tea, recommendations for dinner and things to do in Cape Town and surroundings. All the good comments in previous reviews are confirmed. Don't miss out on this gem!

This was by far the best hotel experience I've ever had. It didn't really feel like a hotel stay actually. Everything that you could possibly want or need during your stay is taken care of by the amazing staff. They are what makes this place so special. Everything was taken care of for us with a smile. Restaurant reservations, taxi pick ups, laundry, and so much more all arranged. The breakfast and high tea food was delicious and diverse. I felt like royalty the whole time I was there.

We stayed in the Pom Pom garden room which was beautiful and well maintained in every way. The room was always artfully rearranged and cleaned several times a day.

Thanks so much to the staff of MannaBay! You made our stay in Cape Town perfect. If you are staying in Cape Town, stay here!

I'd like to echo all the positive comments posted by numerous other guests, it's fabulous. A beautiful hotel in a convenient location with great views from stunning rooms, lovely breakfasts and high teas but above all fantastic service. The staff did an outstanding job, thank you! We were made so welcome and our every need seemed to be anticipated, nothing was too much trouble. The Manna Bay team made our four nights a 'wonderful stay'.

We had a fabulous time at Manna Bay. Our room was lovely as was the whole hotel. The staff could not have been more congenial and attentive and had no problem accommodating any special requests.The location was convenient for anything we wanted to do and the uderground parking was a plus. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Capetown.

From start to finish we were treated royally! We were greeted upon arrival with the surprise of a upgrade to our room...from the Orchid Room (very beautiful) to the Explorer Room which was very large, beautifully decorated and had a fireplace. The bathroom was exquisite. The staff catered to our every whim. Breakfast and High Tea are included and both were delicious with beautiful presentations. From our room's balcony, we could see Table Mountain and Devil's Peak. Many thanks to Robyn and staff for making us feel so special. We hated to leave!!

We had the absolute pleasure to have stayed in this gorgeous hotel for three nights. The rooms are huge with a lovely balcont, spa time of bathroom. All of the hotel has been decorated by some well known interior designer with fabulous taste. The veranda was lovely as the property sits at the bottom of Table Mountain and overlooks the city .
Now for the people who work there. The staff are so kind and helpful. There wasn't anything we wanted for that was not satisyed. They were such warm people. The gourmet breakfast are outstanding.
I would love to return to such a wonderful place.
