Breathtaking views and complete tranquillity are just two of the luxuries to enjoy at Abbey Manor. The charming guesthouse is set in the quiet Cape Town suburb of Oranjezicht, on the skirts of Table Mountain just above the bustling city centre, within easy walking distance of trendy Kloof Street, or a short drive to the V&A Waterfront. A listed building built in elegant Arts and Crafts style in 1905, it has been sympathetically restored to retain an old world elegance, with a relaxed ambience making guests feel completely at home. The warm welcome and excellent service just add to that home from home feeling.
Each of the nine rooms has its own individual character and charm. The two Grande rooms are the largest with sensuous décor and extra features like a private terrace or a claw-foot bath tub set in a picture window. The luxury rooms of the top floor have charming sloping ceilings with quaint nooks and sitting areas, or bathtubs, with birds’ eye views over Cape Town. An adjoining sitting room leads out on to the roof terrace, which has a spa hot tub and dramatic views of Table Mountain. The two garden cottages are private, opening on to their own patios and the swimming pool terrace, a lovely place to relax and soak up the views. There is free wi-fi, satellite TV and air-conditioning in all the rooms.
Delicious breakfasts are served in the elegant breakfast room or out on the pool terrace, with a good buffet selection and plenty of choice from the cooked to order menu, and they are happy to accommodate any special requests. The owner and host, Judi, is always at hand to advise and make bookings for activities and restaurants in Cape Town and the staff all go out of their way to make sure you get the most out of your stay.
For panoramic views, gracious hospitality and a great location in a quiet, safe neighbourhood that is convenient for all the best of Cape Town, Abbey Manor is hard to beat and is an excellent choice for affordable luxury in the Mother City.
