I attended an outdoors birthday braai at Mountain Manor on Wednesday and as always the venue, the ambiance and the service was splendid. Cape Town was a bit damp in the morning, but the sun came out later and as we arrived shortly after 1 pm, the friendly braai-fires were going already. It was a lovely afternoon of fun and laughter with good friends.

Sandton, South Africa
I loved being hosted at Mountain Manor while I was on business in Cape Town. Its a walking distance to the grocery store and a short drive from Kloof street which has lots of little coffee shops and restaurants. The host Michelle has gone out of her way to make the Manor cozy and comfortable. There are delicious aroma's coming out of her kitchen each night and she was happy to make me breakfasts according to my strange requests, including smoothies and vegetarian delights. The house was spotless even after months of lockdown! I felt safe and secure which was very important for me as a solo single traveller - it was very well appointed, I would highly recommend it over any hotel.

Dylan C wrote a review Feb 2020
Had a great stay, it was perfect for leader training with the conference room. It is in a slightly rougher part of town so I wouldn't walk alone at night but public transport is easily accessible. The only problem I had was that my bed did not have a plank big enough to cover the whole base, so the mattress would sag on the one side. I moved the plank to the middle of the bed which sorted out the problem for me because I sleep in the middle of the bed. Had I been with my wife it could've have been a problem. But otherwise, I had a lovely stay.
