We went to Manor on the Bay to hold my friend's wedding and we were totally blown away by the friendliness, helpfulness and very good service of ALL the staff. We walked in as guests and walked out buddies! The wedding was a complete success and if you looking for an amazing seaside wedding venue for a intimate wedding then this is the place to go!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are very tatseful, clean and a nice size but I would advise going for a sea view as no...

This is a superb product right on the beach in a secret under rated area outside Cape Town. Gordons Bay is 10 minutes drive to wine farms, 5 minutes to a beautiful coastal drive, and only 40 minutes from Cape Town airport. The place itself is better value than most cape town centre based, camps bay, or seapoint based products, way safaer, way friendlier on the pocket, and we walked to dinner and felt very much like we were in a remote coastal village, rather than near a mgea city. ideal for families, honeymooners, and ven business men wanting a break from the usual rat race of the Cape Town city centre.

Room Tip: Rooms 11 and 12 have the best views and are secluded and private

We selected Manor On The Bay because of its location and excellent reviews. It is a lovely hotel with beautiful gardens and views over the bay. Free parking (inside the premises) and WiFi, delightful breakfast, and excellent service made our one-night stay very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of trip. We choose Gordons Bay for access to the airport, and the wine area. What we didn't realise when we booked was what a good choice we made. Although we read travel guides and TA extensively, we now feel this location is understated. The coastal drive from Gordons Bay to Betty's Bay was fantastic (our favourite and much better than Chapman's Peak). We went to many wine estates but none beautiful than Vergelegen which is only a few miles away. The wine was good too.
As for Manor on the Bay, this was the most comfortable, luxurious place we stayed. The welcome, the staff and the breakfast as good as anywhere in our 3 weeks and 8 different accomodations.

I have stayed at Manor on the Bay every year since 2003. It is a delightful guest house which is well designed and appointed. The bedrooms look like something out of an interior design magazine and the view of False Bay from the well manicured front garden is breathtaking. If you are lucky, and visit at the right time of the year, you may see dolphins and whales

Gordon's Bay has a lovely sandy beach. However, as it is washed by the Atlantic Ocean the water is refreshing rather than warm. Gordon's Bay has some nice eateries (particularly down at the harbour) but is also within easy driving distance of the excellent restaurants and wineries of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Gordon's Bay is not too far out of Cape Town but is better located for the wine route and a drive into Hermanus.
