My husband and I stayed in the Versailles suite at the Manna Bay Hotel for 5 nights in September. This hotel is quite simply the BEST! The hotel is in a quiet area only a short drive to restaurants, the V&A Waterfront, etc. Our suite was beautiful, bright and spacious with a spectacular view of the city and waterfront. Service...

We have visited Manna Bay three times now, and every time we are reminded of why this is the best place we have ever stayed. The hotel is extremely comfortable and luxurious. The view is amazing, rooms are exquisite, breakfast is sublime. The staff go so far above and beyond, they really make so much effort to make you feel...

Stayed here with three other couples for four nights. The place was beyond what we imagined. Amazing views of Table Mountain in the back, and breathtaking views of the water from the front. Hospitality was beyond compare from the moment our van pulled in to the moment we left. Felt like we were guests in a home rather than a...

We enjoyed every minute of our four day stay at Manna Bay. The service was outstanding the breakfast and tea temptations amazing. Most importantly the atmosphere was so comfortable. We loved being in a neighborhood instead of a tourist area. The sun setting on the surrounding mountains was beautiful. We are telling everyone we speak to about our visit to...

MannaBay is the best hotel I've ever stayed at. This beautiful 8 room gem is luxurious and low-key at once. The property and rooms are exquisite, and no detail is overlooked. They do not have a restaurant, but serve an excellent breakfast and over-the-top high tea. The staff are all friendly and any request is honored. It's like staying at...

Our travel agent recommended the MannaBay hotel as a great place to stay for our first visit to Cape Town and they are indeed correct: the MannaBay hotel is locate high above the city in a quiet area with a beautiful view directly from our room (Versailles suite).

This is a gorgeous boutique hotel right on the edge of table mountain with great views of Cape Town and the bay. Each room has it's own theme and is well designed, and breakfast is served each morning. The staff was wonderful and assisted us with booking tours and dinner reservations, and all their recommendations were great. The chauffeur service...

From the moment you get there to the moment you leave, you are treated like Royalty! Breakfast was superb. They do not serve dinner but one night we ordered take-in and sat on the outside patio while they served us drinks! Also, one day we missed high tea, but they still brought whatever they had left out to us. I...

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we were not disappointed. The view from the Explorer Room was insane as we had the perfect view overlooking city bowl. There were interesting details in the room and around the hotel that really made the place special. Service was impeccable and every request was met with a genuine smile....
