Until a couple of years ago this luxurious boutique hotel was a private villa and it still retains many of the features for guests to enjoy: a lovely library, sitting room etc. Cape Town is funny in that most top restaurants are incredibly good value, whereas good hotels can be quite expensive. MannaBay is not cheap, but you get a...

Was at Mannabay for only one night and really enjoyed it. The stunning hotel has a stunning view of Cape Town and Table Mountain, it felt like staying at a posh friend's chic villa, with 8 beautiful rooms, each one uniquely designed along a different theme. My room was the Flamingo room and had a huge outdoor area facing Table...

My wife and I spent five nights in this slice of heaven. Every positive comment in prior reviews is correct. The house and its contents are beautiful, every member of the staff is exceptionally helpful and courteous, and the breakfasts and tea services are delicious. Our only complaint is that it is impossible to control the room air conditioning. They...

Thank you for your review and feedback. I am glad to hear that our hospitality somewhat made up for your experience with the air conditioning, but this is certainly an issue we plan on rectifying immediately. Our aircon units seemed to have overcompensated with the extreme heat wave that Cape Town has just experienced. We hope that you will come...

We stayed for one night last weekend and wish we'd had longer. The hotel itself is brilliant and the rooms are great but the service is second to none. There is a delicious, complimentary high tea each afternoon, which should not be missed, and the hotel provided us with free transport to and from our restaurant booking in the evening....

Imagine that you have some very wealthy friends with really great taste in art, and they've invited you to stay in their stunning new modern house halfway up Table Mountain, with panoramic views of Cape Town.
