My wife and I stayed at the MannaBay for two nights in January and wish we could have stayed longer! The hotel itself is gorgeous, provides sweeping views of the city and is a 5 - 10 min ride to anywhere you want to go. The staff was fantastic as they provided us with a lot of

What I can say that so many reviewers haven't already ? Two weeks ago we stayed 5 nights at MannaBay. It literally sits at the bottom of Table Mountain with stunning views of Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Cape Town. We had the Flamingo Room which had a large, private deck

We stayed at Manna Bay again, at the end of our holiday to South Africa. It was like going home, nothing is too much trouble and the effort the staff made on our behalf was superb. We had taxis booked for us when ever we asked, the hotel took us to and fetched from our evening

My husband and I stayed in the Oriental Room to start our honeymoon. I can't say enough about the service - the staff was incredibly accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. I am gluten free and they always made sure that I had

We stayed in the Versailles room at the start of our honeymoon for four nights in November. The room was absolutely stunning with views of the water, city, and table mountain. We arrived to wine and congratulatory cards and food in our room. The service was impeccable, with

Dear melcas16, We are delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful stay with us on your honeymoon. Our Versailles Suite must certainly be one of the best bedrooms in Cape Town. As you say it has the most amazing views, as well as a beautiful big bathroom with shower and bath, ample wardrobe space and dressing table area, and complimentary minibar. The bed itself is a four-poster mirrored bed, a real treat for honeymooners in particular! Thank you for taking the time to post your review and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Warm regards, Stretton and The MannaBay Family.

I didn't see any children while we were there; not sure if they have a policy, but perhaps not the ideal hotel for bringing a child. The rooms are fairly big, though, so if they have a roll-out it would fit in some of the larger ones.

Hi, August is still considered Winter in Cape Town and the weather can be cold. Unfortunately, our pools are not heated, so we cannot guarantee that a swim in the pool will be pleasant. However, if you are looking to warm up, we have a steam room available to our guests in the gym 24/7. Hope this helps - let us know if you have any other questions.

"No room is a bad room, I do suggest the rooms at the front of the hotel. Your evening/night and morning views are outstanding"
