Home away from home
Great location near shops and local transportation. Excellent hot and cold breakfast served. Secure parking. The building is full of charm with lots of beautiful artwork! This was our third stay and will be back again for another night before we leave South Africa! Highly recommend this Ashby Manor

Old Gem - bit noisy
The room was very nice. The traffic on this road is very bussy and if you are a light sleeper it may be a disturbance.

Back in Cape Town
I stayed in the huge family room (room 4). It has access to a shared balcony with 2 other rooms. The only down thing is is that other guests smoke on the balcony, which can be annoying to a non-smoker. Lovely breakfast. Welcoming check in. I will definitely stay here again.

Nice property, good location
The guest house was good but I didn’t realise I wasn’t going to be in the main house, my door was on the road-side of the property. This was rather disconcerting especially when returning in the evening. The room itself was lovely. A comfortable bed, with a well equipped kitchen area & good sized ensuite shower room. The only problem was that there was NO HOT WATER. I was told to run the water for 5 minutes. This was rather worrying as Cape Town was encountering its worse drought in 100 years! Breakfast was good and there was plenty to choose from. They kindly let me leave my bags during the day & arranged a taxi to me next property, which was very helpful. It’s in a good location, near bus stops. Shops and restaurants are a short walk downhill. Seapoint beach and additional bus stops are a little further away.
