This is a few old grand mansions converted into rooms and apartments. We were in room 17 - which has two bedrooms, bathroom with bath, living room and kitchen which opens onto its own veranda. The gardens shopping centre with Woolworths and Pick 'n Pay is a two minute walk. The kitchen had enough cooking implements to prepare meals. Breakfast...

Mountain Manor is in a good location in Cape Town, easy walking distance to some great restaurants and shopping. The gentleman who works at breakfast and in the evening, Gift, is indeed a gift. He was charming and helpful always. However we found others to be not quite as charming.

The room was very comfortable, and had all the necessities one needs on a business trip. Secure off road parking which is a priority! Freedom to come and go, private and spacious.A well equipped kitchen, so if you want to self cater, then everything is there! Shopping centre is across the road, wonderful restaurants close by - especially the Indian...

We stayed at Mountain Manor in January after leaving our pre booked guesthouse due to the appalling attitude of the manager. Mountain Manor was totally different from that place. It has lovely rooms, a great location and friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Cape Town.

Thank you for your kind review and I think that you took the sun with you when you left!! Its wet and rainy (but I guess it is winter now) so the fires are roaring and the red wine is flowing. Hope to see you again in the future.

I Have enjoyed my 8 visits to stay at Mountain Manor apartments. Friendly staff, pleasant rooms. The location makes all the wonders of Cape Town accessible. The balconies on the front apartments and wonderful for relaxing and enjoying the air of Cape Town. The rooms don not feel like hotel rooms, they are homely and comfortable. The pool is a...

This was our fourth stay to Mountain Manor Guesthouse. There are plenty of more elegant places to stay in Cape Town, buth this guesthouse has its own charm. Friendly staff, nice rooms, and a private pool area where friends can relax. It is simply very nice!

This B&B offered a great location, however, the offerings of amenities were limited. If you are looking for insulated rooms, great food, and cable....go elsewhere! Basic amenities in 3 star establishments are offered here at an additional price! Nice staff but a tacky pretentious atmosphere. You have to offer goods to be considered posh...especially when theft occurs in "locked" bedrooms.
