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. Oct 5th, 2018.

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! April 2nd, 2018

Amazing view and very friendly staff When we arrived we had a very warm welcome by Dorie & Johan.The view is amazing! Cape Town and Stellenbosch are within an hour drive. A visit to Gordons Bay in the evening is just 5 minutes away! Just relax after breakfast at the pool and take off for lunch in the area. Aug 2nd, 2018

Amazing stay & the warmest welcome by Johann & Dorie FABULOUS place to stay. We loved our rooms, view, pool, breakfast and the peaceful surroundings. Our beds were VERY comfortable in our spacious & modern bedrooms.We loved the more personal service offered, nothing was too much trouble. Local knowledge of places to visit and eat were spot on.Our 9 night stay was far more relaxed, enjoyable and comfortable than the 1 night at a 4* hotel in Cape Town. Feb 26, 2018

Lovely guesthouse ! We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful lodge! Upon our arrival very late in the evening we experienced a warm welcome by Johann which we very much appreciated after our long journey. No doubt: Johann and Dori are excellent hosts who prepared lovely breakfasts and gave us a lot of tips. Dori booked us into some very nice restaurants! Lourensford was definitely worth a visit!! Colourful manor was our first stop in two lovely weeks we spent on Western Cape. You won't regret visiting this wonderful lodge! Johann and Dori thanks again for your hospitality. Warm regards Renate and Frank! November 2017

The Hosts made sure we had a relaxing stay and suggested a good set of places to sight see, get fun activities and eat! The views from the room in the morning is beautiful and you can see the city lights at night. June 2017

Great location! Even though it does seem a bit far away from Cape Town, the location of this property is excellent. It is an easy drive to Hermanus, to the Winelands and only a 45 minute drive to Cape Town. So if you are not a city person but want everything around the corner, than this is an great place to stay.
