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.

  • Lovingly restored listed building, full of charm and character
  • Dramatic city & mountain views from the suites
  • Heated swimming pool & rooftop terrace

Walking into the guest house made me feel as if I was arriving home. It's so homely you feel like you can kick off your shoes, sit back and relax or enjoy sipping on hot chocolate next to the fire!

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.

"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."

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.

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.

What a city! What a metropolis! We weren't expecting tit! That is not Africa!!! At least not the Africa that we are used to. We had a great time during our wonderful 6 day vacation. We've seen it all: the Vineyards, Cape Point, Robben Island, Table Mountain, Camps Bay, Bantry Bay, the Waterfront, the City Center, the Garden...The penguins and the seals... How did it all end up there: you are really blessed!!! The girls just went crazy with all the shops... We are now official fans of Cape Town (a city we all would love to live in!) The host Judi made our stay in Cape Town even better. She was always there for us, giving her advice and phone calling every one. A real great host!!!

Cape Town was great, we enjoyed the Waterfront in the evenings and our drive to Cape Point was stunning. The only disappointment was the cable car, it was closed because of high winds. Therefore we didn't get to go on Table Mountain but we still we went to Signal Hill and had a wonderful view . Judi was great at Abbey Manor, we really recommend them.

The absolute highlight of my trip was Cape Town and The Abbey Manor Hotel. Judy was a fantastic hostess and I can't praise her and the guest house enough. She was a constant source of great information and was an absolute pleasure to be around. Cliff and I just dutifully did as she advised for the entire time and because of that had a wonderful stay in Cape Town. We then had an amazing night in Franshoek at a winery that Judy recommended, in fact I must get on to her and let her know how much we loved it. I promised I would! Further the 4 fantastic days on the garden route.
