Reviewed 19 October 2016

Beautiful place with a great location, so close to the beach you could smell the ocean air and hear the waves. Lots to do close by, especially if you love the outdoors and adventure. Restaurants in walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Came in late, no problem getting to the property. Beautiful views of the bay, large rooms and excellent breakfast. A little far if business or holiday around Cape Town CBD, otherwise would def. come back

We had a lovely 3night stay in an awesome room at Manor on the Bay (opt for room 11/12 if available). On arrival I wasn't impressed to see the flight of stairs leading up to our room, but once I reached the front door, the view was amazing. Waking up with a view of the ocean is always welcome.

Thank you for the review and detailed feedback. I appreciate the time you took to write this. The new towels ( in time for the peak season coming up) arrived last week. I agree, some of the old ones needed to go.... The interleading door between room 11 and 12 needs attention. We'll look into solution for this soon. We...

Despite having experienced this establishment having moved me from my specific room booked months ago (Room No 11), a day before checking in, the old and new management came to my despair and gave me my favourite booked room. With their friendly and accommodating attitude and service I am sure this place will continue to be a popular place to...

From the way Noeleen welcomed us to everyonr in the dining area. I had told Noeleen I'm uncomfortable around dogs and she made sure she kept the dog out of our site . Even though the cape weather was horrible we managed to jog at the beach because it's only a few meters away

What a lovely place to stay, immediately made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Great sized room with a cost fireplace, a fab location just a walk across the road to the beach. Restaurants are within safe walking distance but far enough away for a peaceful break. Thanks
