Abbey Manor Luxury Guest House was designed by a well known Cape architect at the beginning of the 20th Century and has been lovingly refurbished to create the grand, luxurious guest house it is today. High ceilings, bay windows and an ornate fireplace are further enhanced by carefully chosen details and sumptuous furnishings. Set on the slopes of iconic Table Mountain, Abbey Manor has superb views of the city and Table Bay below, and breathtaking views of the mountain behind.

Being located in the quiet city suburb of Oranjezicht means guests are only a 15-minute walk or a two-minute drive from the city centre. This gives you easy access to many of Cape Town's attractions such as the nearby V&A Waterfront and the beautiful Atlantic Seaboard beaches such as Camps Bay not to mention putting Table Mountain right on your doorstep. Whatever you decide to do, your hostess Judy will be more than happy to give you ideas and advice.


  • Located in a quiet suburb close to the trendy hub, Kloof Street
  • Lovingly restored listed building, full of charm and character
  • Dramatic city & mountain views from the suites
  • Heated swimming pool & rooftop terrace

Traveller Reviews

  • In Cape Town, we loved the Abbey Manor Guesthouse. Lovely place, lovely people. A bit removed from tourist areas, but that was fine with us. We used Uber a lot. What a fabulous city. We had memorable meals at the Pot Luck Club and Savoy Cabbage restaurants.

  • We loved Abbey Manor in Cape Town – Judi and Samantha are just the best.

    Angela Hester, January 2014
  • Abbey Manor has outstanding hospitality and service.

    Sonia Ng, October 2013
  • Thank you for all your help in planning this fabulous trip, all of our accommodations were very nice (loved the Abbey Manor & Judi gave us the little stand-alone cottage) & all of the flights and transfers went very smoothly.

    Sara Hein, January 2013
  • We arrived home today and wanted to say thank you for your efforts in arranging our trip. During our stay in Cape Town we had a guide to show us the local sites as well as the surrounding areas, though Table Mountain had to be missed due to the constant rain and low clouds. Note, Abbey manor had agreed to keep their luggage while they went on safari and even allowed for a 20h00 check out on their day of departute - far surpassed expectations.

  • Cape Town reminded me of where I grew up, San Diego, California USA. The city, waterfront, weather, and many other specifics about it was very similar to San Diego. Therefore, I felt right at home. Overall, Cape Town was wonderful. It is a city I hope to return to and spend some additional time in.

    Bryan Merchant, July 2010
  • Abbey Manor was more than I expected and the staff there were very helpful. The location is very intimate, close enough to great restaurants and far enough from the noise. They supplied excellent breakfast.

    Jacques Matone, June 2010
  • Abbey Manor was lovely, and Judi the manager was so helpful. She done all she could to enable us to enjoy and get as much pleasure out of our stay.

    Eileen Hunter, March 2010
  • The beautiful guesthouse was pleasant. The food was great and even more so the view. The staff were lovely, helpful and kind.

    Sheila Holloway, December 2009
  • I loved Cape Town and would move there in a second. The Abbey Manor was excellent and you are right about Judy - she is great. The other person working there was Angela and she was great too. They were both so helpful and the bed and breakfast itself was extremley nice.
