What a disappointment!!! Website looks fantastic but you very soon on arrival realise you have wasted your money. Rooms are old and dated. Paint peels off in places. No air conditioner, no minibar, no fresh drinking water available in rooms. The little coffee station in your room gives you the idea of being in the army or in boarding school....

Very friendly, colourful guest house. Friendly staff who are most willing to assist the guest with any question and restaurant reservation. Breakfast choices are sufficient, the beds are suitable for long people (2m+). In all, we had a great time staying in The Colourful Manor

The bed(s) were comfortable and the bathroom was fine, except the shower head is so high up that there is a lot of...

The room was small, poorly furnished, had no air-con or fan, no TV and no fridge and all round very unappealing. The bedroom had no window, only a sliding...

The people was very friendly. Breakfasts were good. View amazing. The room was an disappointment. We didn't have the nice view I expected. A small fridge would have been nice as they do not serve lunch or dinner. No fresh drinking water in the room. No soap in the shower. No TV or radio. Towels not very nice. This is...

We loved our stay at Colourful Manor and were greeted and treated with warmth over the entire weekend. Breakfast was awesome - even had an egg white omelet made for me special. Definitely a place we will recommend to others. Thanks guys.
