Colourful Manor is a wonderful mix of modern colors and a homy style. We specially liked the self catering cottage with two separate bedrooms, a spacious living, well equipped kitchen and your own terrace. The views and garden of this friendly guesthouse are great. Imagine the home made breakfast on the deck, a glass of wine or whisky to see...

What a special place to stay! Waking up in the morning to a panoramic view of the sea, immersed in the mountains, smelling pure air and experiencing visual freedom, wide open views and tranquility of the surrounds... Amazing! Thought and attention to detail has been emphasized, quality finishes in the bathroom, good water pressure and lots of natural light enhanced...

Very lovely and helpful people. Perfect place for those who wants to ride the bike. Just 20 minutes away we found fantastic MTB trails to ride around Grabouw in the morning and afternoon relaxing by the pool and enjoying the scenery. Amazing! Sea view rooms are huge. Just missed a fridge in the room.

Beautiful backdrop of Gordons bay in the distance. Nothing could really be faulted, but I wasn't blown away. The bathroom is open plan and when you shower the whole bathroom gets flooded which is quite inconvenient. Little extra touches were noticed like a couple of different attachments for the hairdryer that was a nice touch.

We stayed 3 nights in Colourful Manor. The views of the mountains are great. The view of the village and the sea is mediocre. Our room was big, but tired. No table to put our suitcases on. Some of the bedlinen had grey paint on it, towels were worn out and had holes in them. Although we pointed this out,...

I have visited S Africa 16 times and this was the poorest Guest House I have...
