Gorgeous boutique hotel in an underestimated little town. We stayed here twice, once in 2001 and again this year, the new bigger pool (still small) is a welcome addition. Its an intimate hotel and you feel more of a guest than a patron. The staff are so great and give great advise about staying safe and seeing the sight in...

I cannot recommend the spa. I have been twice and the treatments are very rushed with the therapists not using a gentle hand at all. When coming to a spa you want to feel pampered and calm. At this spa you are made to feel like an appointment to get finished as quickly and roughly as possible. No finesse at...

I am hesitant to review this gem as it’s been our little secret but the Hout Bay Manor Hotel deserves praise for their Sunday Lunch Buffet. Everything is superb – from the oyster starters to the homemade ice cream dessert – and the service is good too. The staff patiently explain each buffet item and menu options change from week...

Restaurant only - absolutely superb, from starters to desserts. Clearly a good chef in the kitchen. A great alternative to the normal fish and chips routine in the Hout Bay Harbour, which seems to be what everyone comes to Hout Bay for

BAR: No bar service provided. There was never someone at the bar. We had to go and look for someone to serve us when we wanted a drink. The bar waitron was very slow (there was no sense of haste. Drinks were not prepared in a timely manner). RESTAURANT AREA ISSUE: There were two ‘pre-dinner’ seating areas in the restaurant...
