I'd like to echo all the positive comments posted by numerous other guests, it's fabulous. A beautiful hotel in a convenient location with great views from stunning rooms, lovely breakfasts and high teas but above all fantastic service. The staff did an outstanding job, thank you! We were made so welcome and our every need seemed to be anticipated, nothing was too much trouble. The Manna Bay team made our four nights a 'wonderful stay'.

We had a fabulous time at Manna Bay. Our room was lovely as was the whole hotel. The staff could not have been more congenial and attentive and had no problem accommodating any special requests.The location was convenient for anything we wanted to do and the uderground parking was a plus. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Capetown.

From start to finish we were treated royally! We were greeted upon arrival with the surprise of a upgrade to our room...from the Orchid Room (very beautiful) to the Explorer Room which was very large, beautifully decorated and had a fireplace. The bathroom was exquisite. The staff catered to our every whim. Breakfast and High Tea are included and both were delicious with beautiful presentations. From our room's balcony, we could see Table Mountain and Devil's Peak. Many thanks to Robyn and staff for making us feel so special. We hated to leave!!

We had the absolute pleasure to have stayed in this gorgeous hotel for three nights. The rooms are huge with a lovely balcont, spa time of bathroom. All of the hotel has been decorated by some well known interior designer with fabulous taste. The veranda was lovely as the property sits at the bottom of Table Mountain and overlooks the city .
Now for the people who work there. The staff are so kind and helpful. There wasn't anything we wanted for that was not satisyed. They were such warm people. The gourmet breakfast are outstanding.
I would love to return to such a wonderful place.

We enjoyed our three day stay at MannaBay. Our every need was taken care of by the caring and attentive staff. The Versailles Suite was lovely, our only regret is that we didn’t spend nearly enough time in Cape Town. We will book our next Cape Town adventure at the MannaBay Guest House.

I booked our holiday to Africa through Rhino Africa and we had the good fortune to spend 4 nights at the Manna Bay in April. I had high expectations having read the reviews and I have to admit all of my expectations were met and surpassed. Although we had booked the Pom Pom room we were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the beautiful Black & White room with its lovely balcony. Robyn, Justine and all of their staff are so welcoming and go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your stay suggesting good restaurants, booking tours and being generally very caring, you really feel pampered. When in conversation with Robyn I mentioned a favourite wine, I was amazed to find that when we came back that evening a bottle of the wine had been placed in our room with their compliments. Manna Bay turned out to be a highlight of our trip, the only drawback is that it made the next stop on our tour seem less impressive. We hope to return again
