          Loved the location and proximity to beach, but felt that for 4 stars they should have had aircon, bar fridge and kettle in the rooms but didn't. Also service during breakfast wasn't great.

          We had a whale of a time at the Whale View Manor. Rooms excellent and staff superb & very friendly. Food (breakfast) excellent.Pat and I spent a very happy 6 days here and we would be happy to recommend to anyone.Plenty to do in the area with superb restaurants nearby - particularly recommend the Harbour House in Kalks Bay (about 10 kms).We will be back soon.Pat & Dennis Smith - Farnham UK

          Of all the places we stayed in the Cape Town area this was probably the most stylish. Whilst they don't get the SA Tourist Board's 5 star rating - I would guess because of a lack of air con in the rooms - but we felt that this was a sacrifice worth making to stay in such an interesting and well-designed environment. They also served the best breakfast - not so much in content (which was excellent everywhere) but, again, in terms of the stylish presentation.Forget the Tourist Board - this got our 5 star rating!

          We were very well looked after at the Whale View Manor by Joe and Jim, and in the morning Lauren was really helpful in resolving a problem for me which was nothing to do with our stay.Our room was superb and with its spacious and unique decor the whole ambience of Whale View was totally relaxing. The situation is excellent for exploring the Cape Peninsula
