Amazing Guest house, full of old world charm

Review of St James Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Apr 2020
This guesthouse, at St James, is a must, for anyone wanting accommodation away from the city, on the False Bay coast. From the reception desk, through the immaculately furnished lounge then to your suites, this guesthouse is full of wonderful furniture, adding to the 'old world" character of this magnificent guesthouse. The suites are beautiful, spacious, and of course with beautiful furniture and fittings. The staff, especially Goodnews , are exceptional, and will attend to your all your needs. There are plentiful local restaurants, galleries and bars to visit. just down the road.
Date of stay: March 2020

We spent the first night of our honeymoon after our wedding in 1960 in the St James Hotel. We wanted to spend the night of our 60th anniversary on 30.1.2020 in the same hotel but discovered that it later became a retirement hotel so we opted for the St James Manor down the road. What a good decision! It really deserves the 5 star guest house classification. Many thanks to manager Dené for the special treatment we received.

Room tip: Tea spoons for the tea/coffee please!

I really do not want to give this glowing review as St James Manor is the best kept secret in Cape Town! We have stayed here for 5 years. We have stayed at all the glitzy places in Cape Town but St James beats them all - from the minute you arrive, nothing is too much trouble. It’s home from home for us and there is not a single negative aspect to the accommodation, care and kindness on offer from all the amazing staff. Thank you again for a wonderful 12 days of peace and serenity.
