Beautiful view, great breakfast, awesome staff and relaxing even for families. This is really a place worth visiting. We came there while it was raining and were welcomed with umbrellas and a few burning logs in the fireplace. Sublime.

The stay at Manor on the Bay was excellent, good food, good views, a nice fireplace in our room. When we requested more wood, it was delivered without a hassle. What we requested for breakfast was done without a problem. Will definitely go back again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Manor on the Bay Guesthouse is situated 50m from the beach, offering affordable accommodation, value for money and great discounted specials throughout the year, in picturesque Gordon's Bay, Cape Town, South Africa. We are 5 minutes’ walk from upmarket restaurants and Bikini Beach with Blue Flag status. Gordon’s Bay is a top tourist destination in close proximity to Cape Town, Table Mountain, the Winelands (Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Paarl, Helderberg) and over 12 golf courses and located on Route 43, one of SA’s most scenic routes (Gordon’s Bay to Hermanus costal road). Also famous for the Southern Right whales visiting us each year: Gordon’s Bay, Gateway to the Whale Route, August – November.
