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...

Gordons Bay, probably most underated town in the Cape. Very quiet. Very clean. I found myself at this establishment, Manor on the Bay, by default, and am I glad I did. I spent 4 nights so I had time to walk about the area: I still think I got good value for my money. I will come back here even...

Manor on the bay is simply stunning! The rooms are spacious, comfortable and light. The view is amazing! The venue is walking distance away from the beach and harbour. The management is friendly and approachable. They also serve the best food! The venue also offers conference facilities. Major plus point!
