My mum and I went and spent Friday night at the Mannabay fine boutique hotel- it was absolutely divine! From the moment we arrived, everything from the service to the decor was top notch! We had a beautiful afternoon on the veranda sipping on wine and enjoying the treats from the high tea! The room was gorgeous, we were really spoilt -so thank you so much again!
My mum fell in love with the boutique hotel and besides from getting some amazing decor ideas -she plans to go back rather soon with my dad or one of her friends!!

Thank you a thousand times!!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you a thousand times!!
My mum and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the fabulous stay at MannaBay.
From the time we arrived there to the time we left, we were looked after like Princesses. They most certainly have hospitality and professionalism down pat and could show a few people in this country a thing or two.
MannaBay is gorgeous and can be used for so many different scenarios like groups, individuals, families, special occasions and the list can go on. The rooms are exquisite and those bathrooms..... I would love to have a bathroom like that. The decor of MannaBay is fab and odd and strange and beautiful all in one go. The biggest thing is that it all works like clockwork. The positioning is close to everything. I always thought that I had to see the sea when in Cape Town but this time I loved the position. Mother especially loved the lift (elevator) as her hips and knees are not as young as they used to be and not canít do steps very well!!
The staff are really friendly, helpful, unobtrusive and happy, which you do not find often. I happened to pop my head in the kitchen to say goodbye after breakfast and saw the most sparkly kitchen I have ever seen.
I have already recommended MannaBay to some friends who are coming out from the UK next year and to a direct guest who phoned us yesterday asking where to stay in Cape Town!! Mother has also told everyone at the Golf Club so hopefully, some more business will come their way.
I wish MannaBay all the best and good luck and many more guests.
Thank you again

Most beautiful design ever
I really want to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to experience the amazing MannaBay this weekend. It is an absolutely stunning guesthouse (Tinneke, who studied interior decorating, said it is the most beautiful design she has ever seen, and she wants our house to look like that one day :)) Really really beautiful!!!!!
And the staff are great, especially Simon. You did an amazing job, well done! I will highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great experience in Cape town!
Thanks for making it a great weekend. Have a great day!

Thank you so much for our stay at the magnificent MannaBay. We enjoyed the elegant and contemporary feel of the interieor and the warm welcome of your staff.
Nothing was too much trouble and everybody gave us their biggest smile. It was the perfect setting for us to take time out. Jean-Marie does a great job and is very proffesional for her age. Mama Mia was not as bad as I thought it would be and of course the weather played its part. We really had a great time in CT.
Wishing you all the best for the season, and hoping to see you at Grootbos again.

Far exceeded my expectations
Thank you so much for everything! I have been wanting to go to Africa for a long time and the trip you set up for us far exceeded my expectations.
Everything was very easy for us from start to finish. Richard, Jean-Marie and everyone else at the MannaBay were wonderful and the entire staff did everything they could to take care of us, whether it was dinner recommendations or places to visit.
It was the best guesthouse experience I've ever had.
