We had an amazing weekend started with a nice welcome by Dory and Johann. Very kind people who makes you feel welcome at all times. The lodge is located on a hill, next to a lake with an extraordinary view. Great rooms and the best bed ever. Love this lodge, and will come back 100% sure

A great lodge situated outside the hustle-and-bustle in tranquil surroundings. Ideal for a relaxing getaway, centrally located close to various tourist attractions around Cape Town. Thanks Johann and Dorie for the pleasant stay!

The Manor has spectacular views is a perfect location to relax - or to get up and explore the countless things to do close by. The super hosts Dorie and Johann want to make your stay very special. The rooms are basic, comfortable and very clean. But the best spot is the lounge anyways. Relax and Enjoy!

I was here with a selected group for a wedding. Beautiful complex with amazing views. Very peaceful and rooms very modern and clean. Only thing that missed was a tv but that didn't bother me. The hosts Dory and Johan were simply amazing and made this stay the best you can imagine. Thanks and can't wait to stay here again!

Super location, spacious and nicely decorated rooms, good beds even for tall people like me, friendly staff and excellent coffee and wines from the honesty bar. Well located to explore both winelands, garden route, beach and a lot of excellent restaurants such as Idiom and Waterkloof. What more can you ask for?

We were here for the 4th time and it is absolutely our most preferred option for staying when visiting Cape Town and the Winelands. Dory and Johan thanks for taking care of us these days. And especially for the improvised dinner after our late check out.

Our 6 nights stay was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful place, amazing landscape, beautiful rooms and wonderful people running it. Dory and Johan are very warm, friendly and make the best cappuccino's. The Colourful Manor is ideally located from all the places you want to visit. I'd definetly want to go back to Capetown and this place. Loved it!

We stayed 2 nights at Colourful Manor and had a great time there. Dorie and Johann which lead the lodge gave us a very warm welcome and so we felt like home. As we asked for an early bird breakfest at 5.30AM we got the answer "Impossible is not in my vocabulary". Our room was in a very good condition....

A miracle stay above False bay with a view out over the sea, the mountains and over the valley all the way down to Capetown makes Colourful Manor just that much more special. However, that is just a bonus. The real joy comes in when it is time to relax after your day out. That is when the sun sets...
