This is a stunningly beautifully furnished boutique hotel. All public rooms and bedrooms (we had a nose around) are very stylish while our room (black and white) had the most wonderful views over the city. These more than compensate for the hotel being quite a way from the

We spent two blissful nights at Mannabay to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. On arrival, we were offered some sparkling wine whilst we waited for our room to be ready and sat in the library. The hotel feels like a *(super luxurious) home away from home. Another review likened

The MannaBay is off the beaten path, in a good way, in a residential neighborhood at the foot of Table Mountain. The hotel is classy and very clean, and the service is amazing. You get great, panoramic views of Cape Town from the deck and from some of the rooms. The

Dear mirireinita, We had so much fun learning how to sing "feliz cumpleaños" for your birthday, and ensuring we could communicate with each other so that we could properly look after you during your stay. I know what it is like staying somewhere where you can't speak the language, so I could empathise with you! Thank you for posting your review of your stay, and we look forward to seeing you again. Esperamos verte de nuevo! Saludos cordiales, Stretton and The MannaBay Family

I didn't see any children while we were there; not sure if they have a policy, but perhaps not the ideal hotel for bringing a child. The rooms are fairly big, though, so if they have a roll-out it would fit in some of the larger ones.

Hi, August is still considered Winter in Cape Town and the weather can be cold. Unfortunately, our pools are not heated, so we cannot guarantee that a swim in the pool will be pleasant. However, if you are looking to warm up, we have a steam room available to our guests in the gym 24/7. Hope this helps - let us know if you have any other questions.
