Great location just outside Cape town. We have been doing lots of sight seeing from there, the location is very central for that. Within a short distance there are really nice restaurants with great food and wine, we really enjoyed that. The rooms are very clean, simple but decorated with elegance. Breakfast is good, swimming-pool area is nice for a...

We recently experienced a magnificent stay at Colourful Manor in a splendid seaview room. Daily personal attention by Paul, Marjolein and staff to optimize our holidays. They made reservations for beautiful golf courses and lovely restaurants we would not have discovered ourselves in a short span of time. The location is great to explore Cape Town, wine estates and coast...

They have a great lounge for drinks or breakfast with an really easy feel to it. The owners Paul and Marjolein are great hosts! Paul...

We were looking for a nice accommodation for our first night in South Africa, coming from the airport on our way next morning to Botlierskop Reserve. We enjoyed it very much. From the first email contact until we left, everything was perfect. We had two rooms with a connecting door, very clean and very nice decorated (with candles for the...
