Recently I stayed here for 4 nights over a 2 week period and loved everything about the place! First off the location is superb, very central yet very peaceful opposite a gorgeous little beach with a milkwood forest right in front of the guesthouse and close enough to hear the gentle lapping of the waves at night. The property has a timeless feel to it and the 2 massive palm trees in the front bear testimony to this.
I checked in after dark and the system is very organised and found my keys and room without any problems.
The room was great, lots of space, excellent linen, mini fridge and I loved the vintage parquet flooring. All the little details made this a lovely experience from the complimentary sherry in the evening to the excellent beauty range in the bathroom.
Breakfast was great and on 2 occasions the staff arrived early to serve me an early breakfast. Ria and her staff were very friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this guesthouse.

Stayed for one night before heading for Cape Town - a lovely little town which we would like to visit again - the Manor on the Bay was a good Guest House with spacious rooms & well appointed bathrooms - the verandah was a fantastic place to watch an amazing sunset! - breakfast good & staff friendly & efficient - will happily stay again ...

Beautiful view and lovely atmosphere. Delicious breakfast and very friendly staff. Needs better mattresses and pillows and perhaps a renovation on the bathrooms. Our rteam on had the most amazing view over the sea

We stayed one night en route to Kynsna. Charming, well maintained property with friendly, helpful and professional staff. Bay views from the front rooms are lovely. Local restaurants were good, but only a few offering a quality menu. Manor on the Bay is a great option for Capetown. It is one hours drive from all the downtown options, and is well located for enjoying the fantastic cliff drive south towards Pringle Bay.

Room Tip: Views are worth paying for
