“Very pleasant for a quiet couple of nights”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We had a very relaxed stay at Manor on the bay. The staff are excellent, the rooms clean and the location good. The breakfast is simple but good quality.

While the place itself is very pleasant, there isn't much to do in the vicinity. There are a couple of quite average local restaurants within a 5 min walk but nothing else to do other than take in the view. Without a car to explore the surrounding areas (Stellenbosch isn't far) it's not ideal for more than a night or two.

Good value for money.

The Hotel is very nice, situated in a beautiful area. I enjoyed my stay there very much. The only thing was that the day after I left, one of the staff members called me to find out if I did not take te slippers that were in the room. Ironically I had my own, so I never even used theirs. I found that very insulting and I was disappointed after such a lovely stay there.

I treated my mother, Paddy Myburgh (nee Stradling) to a 90th birthday holiday in the home she grew up in (now Manor on the Bay). She spent many hours on the veranda reminiscing about the past. She loved the comfortable beds with a sea view from her bed and it was difficult to get her out of her comfort zone. We enjoyed the breakfasts, the special treatment we received from the owners and staff and the mountain in the background. It is on the beach and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Manor on the bay made my wedding dreams come true; great location, stunning sea views, cosy elegant decor, large spacious rooms, clean, faultless staff and made everyone feel at home. Nothing was to much trouble, they went out of there way to make my wedding day run perfectly despite some last minute changes due to bad weather. I hope one day to be lucky enough to visit again. Thank you all at Manor on the Bay!

Great location for a relaxing expirience. Had a great 3 days to enjoy the Western Cape hospitality. Awesome people and really great accomodation.Really close to the garden route and also close to the Cape Town CBD. Awesome view of the bay. Will definitely return on the next trip to Cape Town.

My husband and I went to this hotel for our sons wedding, everything about this hotel was perfect. The setting was just amazing and the staff, owners and there children made the whole wedding party welcome. The only down side was the weather, as my son and his wife were due to be married outside there had to be some considerable changes as it was torrential rain and gale force winds, but that did not phase the staff at all they just got on with it and every one had a brilliant day.

Room Tip: Room 3 looks out onto the gardens and the sea beyond. Stunning.
