Comfortable, clean, spacious rooms. Perfect for a quick stay in Cape Town. Central location and lots of takeways / restuarants close by. Staff were pleasant and helpful. I would definitely go back to Mountain Manor Guest Lodge.

I found the rooms very dark. Lighting needs to be addressed. Paint is bubbling in room 3 where I stayed and there was no slip mat for the bath/shower which I find a safety hazard. For the price we paid, breakfast should be included.

Came on a trip to Cape Town with my mother and Mountain Manor met our needs perfectly. We were very well located for our trip and the hotel was clean and user friendly. It was also quiet and peaceful.

This is a charming house with spacious apartments, very good breakfast, swimming pool and a self-service bar. Wine is also available for purchase directly in the house. Very good deal for a family. Definitely can recommend.
