There's no shuttle service so ask Dirk or Anja to help you with a cab. Taxis are cheap and Abbey Manor have cooperation with a couple of Companies!

Does each room have its own bathroom.
All rooms have ensuite bathrooms. Some of the rooms have in addition a luxury bath-tub in the room itself, adapted to the Edwardian style of our guest house.

"spacious rooms"
"Say if stairs are a problem, rooms at front have views over the town, rooms at the back have views of Table Mountain."
"Room 2 has a wonderful private porch with a view of Table Mountain"
"Lion's Head room was nice size, view of Lion's Head of course."
"Consider the steps. Our 3rd floor room definitely worth the climb and view of Table Mountain on the attached roof deck."
