Guesthouse & Conference Centre in Gordon's Bay

Manor on the Bay

Situated at the foot of the Steenbras Mountain and overlooking the blue waters of False Bay, lies the historical Manor on the Bay. It was built in 1862 and later served as the Summer residence for Sir Alfred Beit family, from Ireland.

We offer affordable accommodation in picturesque Gordon's Bay, Cape Town. Manor on the Bay Guesthouse is only 30 meters from the beach, where conditions for swimming and sunbathing are perfect. A walking trail under a canopy of Milkwood trees (unique to this part of the Western Cape) leads to a variety of quality restaurants, bars and a unique bookshop. Another leisurely 3 minutes’ walk will take you to the yacht harbour, from where daily excursions of deep-sea fishing, whale and shark watching / diving and sunset cruises depart.

Manor on the Bay provides luxury accommodation in all 12 en suite bedrooms with bed and breakfast. We have disabled friendly rooms & inter-leading family rooms. In addition, we offer function facilities for weddings, cocktail parties and product launches.


Manor on the Bay has spectacular sunset views over the ocean and over the Helderberg Mountains. Enjoy our Sunset lounge with amazing views of the ocean or watch the whales in season or the dolphins passing you by.
