Reviewed November 13, 2013

Great views over the bay. Large rooms and very comfortable. Breakfast acceptable with a selection of hot and cold. Some noise from a nearby club on the Friday night we were staying there. A little far from the main restaurants

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies.

A nice hotel with well appointed rooms. It is a little out of the way for the main town and not really walkable if you intend to go to a restaurant. The staff are very friendly and there are some really good views over the harbour but also some not so good views if you are in the wrong room.
There was an issue with ants in one of our rooms but they were confined to the toilet and did not really bother us.

Room Tip: the right hand side and rear as you look at the front of the hotel are best for views

Set in a nice area, with many restaurants near by and a lovely beach The Edward Charles Manor is a perfectly adequate place to stay but there's room for improvement.

Very large rooms with a beautiful view overlooking the sea, nice sized bathroom with bath & shower. However one of the bedside lamps were broken and a bulb had also gone for the main room. They provided wifi but it wasn't the greatest signal, not essential though. The bed sheets looked slightly worn, also holes in the bath towels. Breakfast was ample, a bit mediocre.


On the whole, friendly staff and nice accommodation. It's far from expensive so can't expect 5*, more than ok for an overnight stay.

Pleasant enough guest house run by nice helpful people. We had a double aspect room with views over the sea. The bathroom was adequate but a bit on the small side, and one of the bedside lamps was broken. Breakfast was ok, but not brilliant.For R750 per night it was good value.

Room Tip: Try to get one with sea views

Stayed at Edward Charles manor in December and the place very average. The room itself needs a bit of a renovation. The linen was absolutely tread bare and felt like it would tear at any minute. The staff was extremely friendly and pleasant, but I was expecting something far superior for what I paid for. The breakfast was quite mediocre and not something to look forward to in the morning. I would not recommend it to anyone.

Nice guest house, only needs to get a little more care with the towels. Charlene helped us with all our request. Breakfast was OK. Good place to be. They need to renew the towel sets, some of them look to old, clean but old.

At end of long drive across South Afirica , this was probably one of the best guest houses I stayed in . Very efficient reception , huge , clean bedroom and bathroom , comfy bed , from which I could look out over the bay .... Bliss !!!
Breakfast cooked to order and very good , easy walk into friendly little town , off road parking a little cramped but ok .
Very impressed , would definitely recommend .
