Abbey Manor

Abbey Manor

Cape Town
4 stars

It sounds like a British private school and looks like a Victorian town house. Built in 1905 when the world was a busy place. Las Vegas was founded, Einstein was busy publishing his brilliance, Cape Town’s City Hall was built and the biggest ever diamond was found in Pretoria. Abbey Manor’s a bit of a gem too. This is a great location for Cape Town virgins. A B&B in Oranjezicht. It's safe and easy to get to the centre and the Waterfront. Bit of a walk but only a short drive. You can park your car on the road outside the hotel. It's an elegant place that still feels like a home. Ornate ceilings, chandeliers, fireplaces, and plump home furnishings. Think wealthy family home. With neat gardens back and front.

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

9 luxury and grand rooms - all decorated in different ways. They have large windows, free standing baths and antique decor.

Some of the rooms have balconies, some have patios. Some are detached from the main house. There’s the choice of twin or double beds and views of the city and mountains are available from most rooms.

All the rooms have original elements with a contemporary vibe thrown in.

This is a house and there are steps, no lift. There’s a room on the third floor - worth the climb once you look out of the window. And it leads to Abbey Manor’s roof top deck which is embarrassingly close to Table Mountain. You won’t miss it. Unless there’s a cloud on your head.

Room Facilities


Well, you’re in Cape Town so there’s a lot on. Table Mountain is less than a mile away (told you it was close), the V&A waterfront is less than 3 miles away. Restaurants, theatres, shops. Or just relax and read one of Herman Bosman’s books - he’s cited as South Africa’s greatest short story writer and was born near Cape Town in the early 1900s, in fact, the same year Abbey Manor was brought to life.
