Wonderful stay at Colourful Manor

Great stay with the lovely couple Dorie and Johann and not to mention the adorable dog Nala the cuddle bear. Weather was abit off but the place is great to unwind and relax with a nice pool area. Dorie has all the tips you need and breakfast was also great! The room was spacious with a nice view of the distant beach.

Beautiful guest house and great hosts!

This was the second time we stayed here. The rooms are very comfortable, the location is superb with marvellous views up to the mountains and down over Gordon’s Bay. A very peaceful location as well. Dorie and Johann are absolutely great, with a super breakfast! We’ll go back to Colourful Manor when we next visit Cape Town!
