          Simply Wonderful”

          A lovely boutique hotel, with staff that are so very helpful, super service, gorgeous decor, a massage to ‘die for’, a vast and delicious choice for breakfast, and a quiet, peaceful location in beautiful Hout Bay.

          Great place with "old worlde" charm and modern facilities. Staff were great and were happy to move us to a different room on our last night due to a small shower problem. Would be very happy to stay there again.

          we arrived really late at this address, as we were let down by HOUT BAY Breeze. However, I loved everything about Hout bay Manor from the staff to everything. they were beyond friendly and caring , everything was immaculate. i will visit them again.

          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hout Bay Manor Hotel and we hope to return sometime soon. Rooms were very spacious and luxurious and the staff were very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was sumptuous and very tasty. We would highly recommend this hotel.
