Sundown Manor made for a perfect beautiful base from which to explore Cape Town. In fact, it was so pleasant there that some days we didn't even feel any rush to go out.
The "Luxury" room we stayed in was airy and spacious, and beautifully decorated. Beds were superb. The breakfast on an outdoor patio was a pleasure. The swimming pool is a great temperature and very pleasant. Parking is secure and spacious. WiFi signal was strong.
The location is fantastic - you are a 5 minute walk away from the Sea Point Swimming Pool and the promenade. Lots of shops and restaurants are on Main St just 2 blocks away. You can catch the tourist Red Bus there as well.... we walked the promenade into Green Point, which is about 20 minutes. Camps Bay is a short drive/cab ride away, as is Signal Hill. We hopped in our car one night and drove up the winding road to Signal Hill to catch the magnificent sunset. -- the Signal Hill/Lion's Head area is no more than a 10 minute drive away. I think by cab it would be maybe 50 rand from here to most touristy places in Cape Town (less than $5).
The area is very safe to walk as well, in my experience. Before coming to Cape Town I was confused as to the best part of the city to stay in. We split our stay between Sundown Manor and a hotel close to the Waterfront. In retrospect, I much prefer Sundown's Sea Point location. It's a much more authentic Cape Town experience. The V&A is a bit of a tourist trap and kind of isolated from the real city.
I highly recommend Sundown Manor. Hope we can come back one day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Whether you’re in Cape Town visiting our beautiful city or here for business, 4 star guesthouse Sundown Manor, is the perfect location. Our sunny patio is an ideal spot for breakfasts and evening sundowners and overlooks the large and inviting swimming pool. The area is quiet and well protected from the wind, an inviting setting for unwinding on those relaxing sunny summer days! If you like the outdoors-take a stroll down the Sea Point promenade, swim in the Olympic size swimming pools or climb Lion's Head Mountain that towers in the background. If you are a sun lover, the shopping type or simply appreciate fine food and wine, the buzz of the V&A Waterfront is a 10 minute drive away, as are the famous Clifton & Camps Bay beaches. Drive to the city centre with ease - ideal for that business meeting or trip to Greenmarket Square. ... more less
