“The perfact place”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

Loved the spot, the breakfast, the rooms, the wine at the 'honesty bar', the view, the trips that were arranged for us, the weather, the restaurants nearby (Waterkloof!), Paul and Marjoleins hospitality, the golf courses, and so on, and so on. My advice: don't hesitate, book.

Room Tip: I would prefer a room with poolview.

I have nothing else than very positive feedback : well situated and nice place designed with a lot of taste.
Also very friendly hosts ready to give advice on what to do and where to go in the area. Don't miss the waterkloof restaurant !
Close to the wine estates and to the bay.

Room Tip: Go for the sea view

Ideal location to stay near Cape Town. Comfort rooms, great design and wonderful hosts Marjolein and Paul. Big breakfast. Perfect for trips like Shark cage diving, whale watching, golf and visit excellent Michelin star worth restaurants like waterkloof and rust & vrede. Stay here!

Colourfulmanor is good value for money

pros
spacious,modern European styled rooms
spectaculair views
quiet situated
close to good restaurants, wine tastings, beaches, Shopping Mall, Cape Town, Stellenbosch.
10 minutes from the N2
outstanding breakfast
Marjolein and Paul are very helpful
Many outdoor sport possibilities nearby.
Great lounge area to relax

cons
The guest house has a big swimming pool, so be careful with little children
Colourful manor is not the cheapest guest house you wil find in Cape Town, but for just a little more you get much more!

Beautifully situated on a hill with great views, close to Cape Town and the wine lands (and the beach), stunning architecture and very nice staff.
Last but not least, the fastest Wi-Fi connectivity we encountered throughout our trip across the Western Cape Province.
