Colourful Manor is a nice, causy and warm guesthouse. A good place to have a rest after travelling around. And a good base of operation when you want to visit CapeTown and will although have a quite place to sleep or have a swim in the nice swimmingpool. Or go for golfing, beachwalks, or visit the West Cape Peninsula. Enjoy!
