We had a fantastic stay in the Versailles Suite and I'm not sure how it could be improved. Huge room at very good value with a great ensuite and balcony with views over Cape Town. Really good service and helpful with booking activities. 10/10 food for breakfast and the best tea with cakes, sandwiches etc. if you get the chance...

We traveled to South Africa in September and spent a fun-filled week in Cape Town. We prefer smaller hotels so our travel consultant booked us at Manna Bay Hotel. The best way to describe our stay would be to say it felt just like home. The staff couldn't do enough for us. We had an amazing breakfast every morning, high...

I absolutely adored my stay at MannaBay in October when I had to visit Cape Town for a week-long business trip. The hotel itself, is graceful elegance personified with a big splash of baroque decor which I simply love! The staff could not do enough even so much as to leave a bottle, every evening in my room, of their...

We spent 2 nights at MannaBay to celebrate my wife's birthday and we loved it. This stunning property is located at the foot of the Table Mountain. The front of the property gives you fantastic views of the city, whilst the rear gives you an equally fantastic view of the Table Mountain. We were greeted with a warm welcome upon...

Stayed at MannaBay as a group of 4 recently and loved our stay. Our favourite things were the design and quality of the accommodation and property, the amazing breakfasts and high tea and the hotel driver service to and from dinner each night. Location of the hotel is about 15 min drive from town at the foot of Table Mountain....

We opted for the top floor suite with balcony. Great views of the city. Great views out the back of the mountain. Very helpful staff even for obscure requests. Awesome afternoon tea - included I might add. Excellent breakfast and coffee, also included. Solid at recommending restaurants outside the hotel. The biggest plus however - the hotel driver.

We recently spent three nights in the Persian Room at Manna Bay at the start of a two week tour of South Africa.

Very rarely do I fall in love with a place. But this is one of them. The service was impeccable, the rooms were fantastic, and the experience was lovely.
