We stayed 5 nights in the Findlay. Very quiet and local area of Kalk bay spoilt by beggars on streets and parking security attendants asking for car security money. The night shelter in Kalk should be moved to allow safe tourism. The manor staff were fine when around but the evening barman was more interested in TV sport watching and...

Owned by Rovos Rail this guesthouse is a wonderful way to extend the train experience. Located between Muizenberg and Kalk Bay this stately guest house is pure luxury. We stayed in the Vancouver suite which had uninterrupted views of False Bay where we spotted whales close to shore. The suite was very spacious with a separate lounge area full dressing...

Amazing winter special; a fraction of usual rate. Huge 70 sq m suite with lovely veranda overlooking the sea. Very friendly staff. The entire place has an amazing ambiance. Was very quiet with few guests, but this is also great in a way as then one can really relax. Walking distance to hippie chic Kalk Bay. Not long drive from...

Impressive looking Manor House with traditional furniture. Rooms are well appointed and provide everything that you need apart from essential items like a telephone. Our room also lacked an information folder which was eventually provided by the manager at the end of our stay. Our original room was unsuitable for our needs so fortunately we were moved to a ground...

It was a nice stay in a pleasant, well run environment. Very good breakfast. Help with Luggage was efficient. The bottle of wine we received upon arrival was excellent. If the quality is the same in the trains, I certainly would make such traintrip.

On Arrival we were made to feel at home. The property is beautiful ,clean and well maintained. staff was scarce and we only ever saw the staff member serving our breakfast. Due to its location being on a main street and close to the railway station ,the noise level was loud.The location is however very central and close to beautiful...

StJames Manor is resting on its laurels and has become complacent. We stayed there 8 nights so probably saw more than the average two nighter stay. Firstly the rooms are excellent especially the Vancouver and Findlay suites. Large king size beds with good seating areas rather like having your own sitting room. Outside terrace, lovely views over the ocean and...
