Having arrived into Cape Town airport we picked up the car and drove just over an hour to reach Gordons Bay. Manor on the Bay guest house was paradise. Fabulous interconnecting rooms on the second floor of the new part of the building giving us a spectactular view over the bay towards Table Mountain. The original building is 150 years...

The room was fine, the bed great however the rate we felt high, the most we paid in a month's stay in SA. The wifi was poor, others complained as well Breakfast was well done. The 2 hour drive around the shore was classic, just stunning landscape.

Good morning, Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm sorry about the wifi. Room 11 and 12 had a connection problem but it has now been taken care of. Our rates are very competitive for a good quality 4 star guesthouse. February is peak season in Cape Town even though we do not inflate our rates our this period....

I was looking for a final night's accommodation relatively near to Cape Town airport and fortunately discovered Manor on the Bay where they were able to offer me their only available room - the honeymoon suite! As you can imagine, it was very spacious, with a large bed and luxurious bathroom. The air-con was also a blessing. The lady in...

True elegant setting with an amazing view. Situated against the Gordon's Bay mountain overlooking the Helderberg basin. A relaxing yet not remote feeling, with only a road separating you from the beach.

We had booked somewhere else, but were so disappointed about the misleading information we refused the apartment on arrival. I quick scan of the internet and we booked this diamond, arriving only 45mins later. It was such a find. Location couldn't be better. Lovely small pool to cool down in, with towels and toys for the kids provided. The room...

Of all the places we visited on our road trip through the Cape over the December period, this was by far our favourite. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The room was beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. The bathroom offered a double basin, shower and a bath. We stayed in unit 1, this was a corner room...
