Delightful bayside hotel with fabulous views at sunset from nearby marina breakwater. Staff could not have been more accommodating. Hotel feels more like a large house in a garden. Rooms are spacious, private, well-equipped and welcoming. Excellent breakfast. Sorry we couldn't stay longer. Located very close to N2 and road over mountains to fabulous Franchoek area.

Manor on the Bay is still one of my favourite places to stay anywhere in the world! I have just returned to the UK after my 11th stay here. The rooms are well designed, spacious and extremely comfortable. Furnishings are all of a very high quality with pure cotton bedlinen (similar to the White Company). All the staff are friendly and very helpful. Thanks to Hanel, Noelene and all members of the team for making our stay memorable once again. Hope to see you again later this year!

I have no hesitation in recommending this guest house which feels more like a boutique hotel which is well placed for a visit to the wine-lands or at the start or end of trips down the Whale or Garden Routes.

Room Tip: All rooms are very well appointed - those with a sea view are particularly nice. As this is a sm...

The Manor on the Bay is wonderfully situated just above the beach. The service is warm and friendly, very customer-orientated. It's a great place to de-stress. The decor and amenities are very classy (the pool is a bit small though) and if you are given a sea-facing room waking up to that view is a great pleasure. They have no racial hangups so black people -- like my wife-- are made to feel genuinely welcome. And wonderful breakfasts to put the cherry on the cake ( though no actual cherries: but a spectacular array of fresh and preserved fruits in the breakfast spread). I'll be back!

The service is very caring and friendly - all the ladies we dealt with were very
professional and helpful. The rooms were ideal and met our expectations. Breakfast was very well prepared and the selection delicious. Snow Flake - the kitten - was a delight.
