Manor on the Bay in Gordons 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 Gordon's Bay. Manor on the Bay is only 20 paces from the beach, where conditions for swimming and sunbathing are perfect. A walking trail under a canopy of Milkwood trees 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. We are located on the scenic Route 43 and have safe off-street parking. Breakfast included, is a health/cold food buffet plus hot English breakfast. The best in town!

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 False Bay 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.
