              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.

              Manor on the Bay provides excellent accommodation with secure parking. It is situated within a short walking distance to the town and has a lovely little beach just in front. The sunsets are spectacular. It is also an ideal seaside base from which to explore Cape Town and its environs as well as the Winelands.Managers, Phia and Karin, and staff were very helpful.
