Fabulous 8,8 From 23 reviews

Very good 8,0
Back in Cape Town
Amazing place to stay, has a lot of character. Friendly and quick check in. I stayed in room 8 on the top floor with amazing views. Winter is cold and wet, so bring along a hot water bottle for bed. Will definitely stay here again

Nice cozy place in a heart of Cape Town
This is a great place stay. Just be careful in choosing your rooms as some of them lack privacy in terms of toilets and baths. Otherwise, it is a great b&b

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.

3rd stay at Ashby Manor
My 3rd stay at Ashby Manor. It is winter in Cape Town so fab deals on fab rooms. Stayed in the luxury double room (number 7) with en suite bathroom: a spacious loft room with private balcony and amazing view! Friendly staff as always and yummy homey breakfast. Also espresso maker in the room. One suggestion: Please leave a fluffy blanket also as the duvet is not warm enough. If you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs as this grand dame of a manor house has wooden floors.
