The location in Sea Point is perfect - close to the main road for a taxi but still quiet and good supermarkets and other shops at a walking distance. Breakfast plentiful and tasty and service excellent. No fridge in my room, which was a small minus. While the living room and other common spaces are nicely decorated, the rooms are...

I stayed here for a business trip. I had a room near the pool. The guest house is located on a quiet street and the room was very well equipped. The block out blinds were a great touch. I was able to walk on the promenade in the morning and evening as its very close. There are several restaurants and...

This boutique hotel is a true gem! Located in a nice and quiet part of Cape Town, but within walking distance to the city centre and with a lot of good restaurants in the neighborhood. The house is peaceful and there is no noise from the streets to disturb a good nights sleep (in the VERY comfy beds!). The lovely,...

Sundown Manor provided us an excellent stay in Cape Town. It was very easy to check in as well out of the Guesthouse. The personnel was very friendly and helped us with the local knowledge. Our room was comfortable with plenty of space and very clean. We were also very satisfied with the breakfast. We are very happy to recommend...

From the owner, the rooms, the pool area, and the fantastic breakfast spread - everything was perfect. The guesthouse is just a few hundred metres up from the main strip in Seapoint, just far enough to be quiet and easily accessible but close enough that, within a 5 minute walk or a R20 uber, you will have a choice of...

Stayed 4 nights. Rooms are good and quiet; Beds comfortable; Bathroom clean. Parking is available. Breakfast is basic, but tasty and serves the purpose. The owner Gary and management are friendly and available for support any time. Location is good for shops, Woolies, Spar and medical shops. Good beaches are a drive away. So cannot walk to any of them...

I am a tour operator that use this facility on a regular basis. Garry and Pepi are real gems. There is nothing too much for them and can I trust them with anything. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. They are close to the ocean and main town with lots of restaurants to choose from. I always feel that...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whether you’re in Cape Town visiting our beautiful city or here for business, 4 star guesthouse Sundown Manor, is the perfect location. Our sunny patio is an ideal spot for breakfasts and evening sundowners and overlooks the large and inviting swimming pool. The area is quiet and well protected from the wind, an inviting setting for unwinding on those relaxing sunny summer days! If you like the outdoors-take a stroll down the Sea Point promenade, swim in the Olympic size swimming pools or climb Lion's Head Mountain that towers in the background. If you are a sun lover, the shopping type or simply appreciate fine food and wine, the buzz of the V&A Waterfront is a 10 minute drive away, as are the famous Clifton & Camps Bay beaches. Drive to the city centre with ease - ideal for that business meeting or trip to Greenmarket Square. ... more   less
