Fully rested we went on to see the Cape Town area, Franschhoek and some highlights of the Garden route such as vineyards etc. Colorful manor was a great basecamp for us, especially because of...

What a disappointment!!! Website looks fantastic but you very soon on arrival realise you have wasted your money. Rooms are old and dated. Paint peels off in places. No air conditioner, no minibar, no fresh drinking water available in rooms. The little coffee station in your room gives you the idea of being in the army or in boarding school....

Very friendly, colourful guest house. Friendly staff who are most willing to assist the guest with any question and restaurant reservation. Breakfast choices are sufficient, the beds are suitable for long people (2m+). In all, we had a great time staying in The Colourful Manor
