We were greeted to a bottle of champagne and a framed picture of our wedding photo in our room along with flowers! That welcome start was perfectly indicative of our entire stay at Manna Bay.. exquisite attention to detail, high class and elegance, supreme service, personalized care. All this not to mention the incredible location at the base of table...

This is a neat property. Not full service, but a great breakfast cooked in front of one and a splendid high tea at the end of the afternoon. They're then great at recommending restaurants in town for dinner and lay on the hotel's driver and car to take you to and from the hotel. We very much liked this hotel...

Simply the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. Stylish boutique hotel with service beyond 5 stars and a High Tea fit for royalty. The rooms are uniquely designed and furnished with majestic balconies or cosy courtyards. A piece of heaven in my home town.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Mannabay during our 3-1/2 week visit to South Africa and could happily have spent more time there. An ultra-modern mansion situated at the base of Table Mountain with spectacular views of the mountain, city and harbor, it has only 8 rooms, each decorated in a distinctive style. Edgy, stunning modern art and...

This is a great contemporary boutique hotel. Reminding us of the Hollywood Hills in LA, you wind your way up to a site at the foot of Table Mountain. Enter the gates and you are in a serene and peaceful art filled environment. It's all grand. Read other reviews to hear more.

We spent a month travelling around South Africa finishing off with our last night at Mannabay. This was just the icing on the cake to a truly amazing holiday. The location is perfect it is high up on the hillside with Table Mounain at the back and stunning views at the front overlooking Cape Town. The atmosphere is very relaxed....

Very cosy, well situated close to table mountain and kloof street which has a variety of restaurants. Warm staff and homely feel. Great breakfast and you need to try the oven baked omelette!! Look for Ayanda, he'll bring you anywhere around the city.

This place is just fab. The most interesting and modern architecture and decor. Views over Cape Town amazing and the afternoon tea and breakfasts sublime, together with the complimentary glasses of wine or bubbly was just the icing on the cake.
