Sundown Manor
Ranked #2 of 12 Fresnaye B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 October 2013

The rooms at Sundown Manor are spacious and clean. The bathrooms are comfortable and neat. The garden and swimming pool and outside terrace is welcoming and beautiful. The setting is ideal - close to Table Mountain, the harbour and the city centre, but far enough to be quiet and peaceful at the same time. Gary, Lindy and everybody else at Sundown are very friendly. The rates are reasonable and offer excellent value for money. I will definitely return to Sundown Manor on my next business trip.

We were very comfortable at Sundown Manor which is less pretentious in terms of decor than other options in the area. The rooms are clean. The beds comfortable and bathrooms very luxurious. The location is unbeatable - just up from the Sea Point pool. Manager, Lindy went the extra mile for us even helping with pesky process if procuring a sim card. Highly recommend

I stayed at the Manor 7 yrs ago with 12 friends and had a wonderful stay. Returned with a different group again and the service and amenities were impeccable. Before arriving Lindy was very accommodating with all the changes we continually made. I was able to get out for my run down by the beach and felt very safe. I would definitely recommend the Sundown Manor. Thank you Lindy and staff for a great stay. Joan S.

We loved this guesthouse! We stayed with a group of friends from around the world and enjoyed meeting in the living room every evening to discuss our adventures over drinks. We stayed with our 3 children and they lived the amenities , especially the pool. Lindy and Christine were gracious hosts and made a wonderful full breakfast every morning. Very homey feeling. Totally safe and welcoming.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 6 which was a king bed and single bed for 1 child. The room next door had another...

I stayed at Sundown Manor for 6 weeks for Medical Treatment. I couldn't have asked for better hosts. Gary and Lindy went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable and well looked after for the duration. They are always so willing to try and accommodate their guests' requests and even supplied a little fridge, microwave and desk (Gary's personal items!) for my use!! The staff were incredibly friendly and looked after me so well! They all felt like family by the time I left! The location is excellent and (weather-permitting) I walked down to the promenade every day, walked to gym, the shops and local restaurants. I can highly recommend Sundown Manor as a destination of choice!

Very friendly and comfortable Guest House! I really felt like home from the first day. The breakfast is fantastic. The Guest Hous is very close to the beach, to nice restaurants and shops. I'm looking forward to come back next year!

Sundown Manor is an excellent Guest House that we stay at every year when we visit Cape Town. It ticks all the boxes. It is well located. Gary and his team couldn't be more helpful and welcoming.. Nice breakfasts, there is always a good suggestion for places to eat in the evening and sights to visit. Secure off road parking is available. There is a small honesty bar and plunge pool for the hot days.
