For this location you need a car. Very quiet location, we liked it a lot! Johann and Dorie are very friendly and make you really feel 'at home' and welcome. We travelled as a family with older children (teenagers/young adults) and this guesthouse was a good choice. The children had their own suite which was spacious enough for all of...

Beautiful place. Location is perfect and the view is awesome. Enjoyed every moment of our stay and the staff we must admit is the best we have seen in a very long time. Before we even ask they have seen the need. Made our stay worth it!

The Manor has spectacular views is a perfect location to relax - or to get up and explore the countless things to do close by. The super hosts Dorie and Johann want to make your stay very special. The rooms are basic, comfortable and very clean. But the best spot is the lounge anyways. Relax and Enjoy!

I was here with a selected group for a wedding. Beautiful complex with amazing views. Very peaceful and rooms very modern and clean. Only thing that missed was a tv but that didn't bother me. The hosts Dory and Johan were simply amazing and made this stay the best you can imagine. Thanks and can't wait to stay here again!

Super location, spacious and nicely decorated rooms, good beds even for tall people like me, friendly staff and excellent coffee and wines from the honesty bar. Well located to explore both winelands, garden route, beach and a lot of excellent restaurants such as Idiom and Waterkloof. What more can you ask for?

We were here for the 4th time and it is absolutely our most preferred option for staying when visiting Cape Town and the Winelands. Dory and Johan thanks for taking care of us these days. And especially for the improvised dinner after our late check out.

We stayed 2 nights at Colourful Manor and had a great time there. Dorie and Johann which lead the lodge gave us a very warm welcome and so we felt like home. As we asked for an early bird breakfest at 5.30AM we got the answer "Impossible is not in my vocabulary". Our room was in a very good condition....
