True elegant setting with an amazing view. Situated against the Gordon's Bay mountain overlooking the Helderberg basin. A relaxing yet not remote feeling, with only a road separating you from the beach.

The location is perfect on a little hill very close (40 mtrs) from Gordons beach, the nice shady part with trees. Walking distance (nice safe path following the beach line) to the centre with all the restaurants and bars.The white b&b house is very stylish mid 1900 colonial period has some 12 very well decorated rooms (some are huge family...

We had booked somewhere else, but were so disappointed about the misleading information we refused the apartment on arrival. I quick scan of the internet and we booked this diamond, arriving only 45mins later. It was such a find. Location couldn't be better. Lovely small pool to cool down in, with towels and toys for the kids provided. The room...

Of all the places we visited on our road trip through the Cape over the December period, this was by far our favourite. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. The room was beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. The bathroom offered a double basin, shower and a bath. We stayed in unit 1, this was a corner room...

Booked at the very last minute while having sundowner and it revealed a perfect stay for a one night stop over. Room was very comfortable and private, we didn't enjoy all the amenities although figure that if had have stayed longer would have appreciated more, ie g-enormous closet surrounding the bedroom. I would rather say same for the breakfast, ain't...

We stayed in the Family Room with our 1 year old and teenager. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Our hosts did everything to make our stay comfortable, especially with an active 1 year old. The beach is right across the road and at low tide there are lovely rock pools with warmish water which is great for a toddler....

We stayed 7 pleasant nights at this beautiful guesthouse in the bottom family room. Room was comfortable and private and we enjoyed the sherry top-ups every day. Generous and delicious breakfasts served daily to keep you full until dinner! Our 1st stayover in Gordons Bay and will quite easy book accomodation here again in future.

Pleasant place to stay in Gordon's Bay, and splendid breakfast too, and the proximity to the beach makes it very beautiful, and the ocean view was very beautiful, and easy accessibility to other restaurant

We initially chose Manor on the Bay based on availability for our stay period as well as being a Discovery partner. From the time we arrived we were treated like VIP's, the rooms were beautiful with excellent staff and really good breakfast. We will definitely recommend.

Breathtaking view, friendly staff who go out of their way to assist you. Beautiful setting with stunning views. The self catering accomodation is neat and immaculate, however, not too children friendly especially around the pool area. Also too many stairs which hassled me as I have a mobility problem and there is no other way to access rooms. The breakfast...
