“What an Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2012

It's a very friendly and hospitable place for staying!
Every corner has its specialty waiting for you to find out!
You can stay there whole day and don't even want to go out for a walk.
"Enjoy it" is the only recommend from me.

This Hotel has a charming atmosphere, excellent service and great setting.
The rooms are very nicely decorated, feels homely and cosy.
Breakfast was excellent with a nice setting, healthy options and good service.
The personal feel to the hotel, small gestures by staff like the "bed time story" was really something different and great.
We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and will definitely visit again

Being spoiled for choice with the range of accommodation, a place needs to walk the extra mile in order to set itself apart. Hout Bay Manor does it, and even more. We arrived on a cold day, the wind howling, and walked into a warm and cozy treasure trove of memorabilia. There are interesting decor elements around every corner: jars of marshmallows in the hallways, tribal art, old photographs, paper sculptures of animals, all blending seamlessly. Dinner/room service portions were more than generous: we were barely able to finish one meal due to the portion size. What really made the stay one of the most special ones ever, was the bed time story - a turn down service with a printed African fable, biscuits, and the weather forecast for the next day. Service is great - they know how to make you feel like the VIP guest! What could easily have been a miserable night in the poor weather conditions, turned out to be a magical visit.

Room Tip: Even though I didn't see a lift, you won't have to lift a finger to get your heavy suitcases...

Friendly staff and great attention to detail. The breakfast was delicious. They were very accommodating to allow us to move our stay ahead by one day after we had car problems. Good value for money. I would recommend Hout Bay Manor. It's close to Chapman's peak and Cape Point if you're travelling there.
