              The service was tops. Olivier and Amin went out of their ways to accommodate us. The breakfast was simple but superb and cooked to the exact request. The rooms were clean and well kept for the duration of our stay. I definitely will recommend it to my friends and colleagues. My wife and I will certainly visit again.

              We had a wonderful one night stay at Manor on the Bay recently.  The little extras, like complimentary sherry in your room, bath robes and filter coffee, were much appreciated.  The breakfast was excellent too.  Thank-you.

              Manor on the Bay is everything we expected and more. Peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Friendly staff and the accommodation and breakfast is 5 star. We will definitely revisit this amazing establishment.

              We stayed at Manor on the Bay for 6 days with three children. Lovely fenced garden with small pool, just over the road to the beach, and also some restaurants on walking distance. Safe and clean. Good location for day trips to Cape town, Betty's Bay, wine gardens and many other places of interest. In 6 days we couldn't nearly visit all the places we would have liked to. And of course, the children was perfectly happy to play at the beach or in the pool. Would like to visit this place again!

              This is a great place. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We received good hospitality.
