We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Nothing was too much for any of the Staff. It was home away from home with Service+ . Wish other Hotels could be like MannaBay. Getting to a dinner booking was no problem and getting back was no problem either. We had somebody to drop us off and pick us at our given time. All bookings for dinner , or sightseeing was done by the Staff , we did not have to do a thing ,just Enjoy.

Room Tip: All the Rooms are just as good as the other. The Rooms have a different theme each. We had the Explo...

We were 3 nights at the Manna Bay and felt very welcome right from the start. You rather feel like being a friend of a Villa owner than a hotel guest. The staff is outstanding, so flexible, friendly and they provide you the very best tipps for Capetown. They even did not charge us the few Drinks we had. Moreover breakfast and high tea was very delicious. I really will recommend this place to all my friends. André

I can't say enough great things about every aspect of this B&B/Boutique Hotel. It is incredible. The rooms are ultra modern and comfortable with every conceivable amenity. Most rooms (7) have commanding views of Cape Town and the bay as the place sits very high up on the approach to table mountain. There are numerous private places both in and out of the hotel-I have to call it that as it is just too wonderful to think of it as a B&B. The staff are very helpful,arranged for restaurant reservations a month ahead as we were there during New Year's week. The breakfast chef made the best Eggs Benedict I ever had and the rest of the food spread was very amazing. The hotel is owned by Rhino Africa Safaris and they arranged for our whole stay in SA and did a great job. They
donate a portion of their income to several charities and causes, including the Save the Rhino Trust and the Khumbalani Day Care Centre for HIV orphans in the Khayelitsha Township.
I would always return to this property and their wonderful staff.

MannaBay is by far the most fabulous B & B I've ever stayed in. Surrounded by breathtaking views, luscious gardens and even a koi pond this B & B is modern, yet elegant with an old world flavor. Tastefully decorated with chandeliers, African artifacts and exquisite art every attention to detail makes an inviting oasis from busy travels. The friendly and attentive staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and help guide our site-seeing and dining pleasures. The gourmet breakfasts and afternoon teas were delicious. If you have the pleasure of visiting Cape Town make sure to stay at MannaBay!

My husband, my sister and her husband visited Manna Bay in January 2014. Our stay was exceptional. We were treated like absolute royalty. The staff was attentive to all of our needs and would assist with any request.. The place is spotless clean and decorated beautifully. We felt like we had our own personal Chef and the food was outstanding.
Hats off to Justine the Manager at Manna Bay. She really does know how to do it right.
I will highly recommend this this Hotel/Bed and Breakfast to anyone I know going to Cape Town.

You'd be hard pressed to beat this as a holiday treat when choosing somewhere to stay in Cape Town.

Manna Bay has a totally unique style with all the top end touches, it is luxurious, quiet, stylish and comfortable on so many levels.

Standing on the highest road above town it has the best possible panoramic views accross the mother city of Africa, table bay and way beyond up the west coast.

The rooms are spacious, bright and very well equipped, and the beds and linen were just so comfortable. The lounges and terraces in abundance give every guest the personal and private space as and if it is needed

The staff are just amazing, the butlers, the chefs the housekeeping, and the management, helpful, attentive, and nothing is any trouble at all. I must also give personal thanks to the attention made to my Coeliac diet and eating needs, menus for breakfast and afternoon tea covered as if I was preparing the food myself - thank you, this is a real treat and experience to find!

In my opinion this team have created the perfect place to stay, and you just won't want to leave.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at mannabay. Staff are very friendly and accomodating with special hats off to the breakfast chef. The views are amazing, whether you get ocean views or table mountain. The rooms are very comfortable and give you plenty to look at. Cannot recommend this place enough.
