Hout Bay Manor
The four-star Hout Bay Manor, built in 1871, is renowned as one of Cape Town’s most graceful landmarks.
The recently restored Hout Bay Manor offers 16 individually designed en-suite rooms and a sophisticated restaurant named EAT.
2006 saw the start of an 18-month refurbishment that was completed in October 2007 and recaptures the charm and beauty of this original home, in a vibrant African culture style.
The hotel officially reopened on 26 October 2007. The breath-taking restyled Pavilion is now the contemporary restaurant, EAT, under the guidance of the Executive Chef.
Hout Bay Manor has preserved the history and heritage while infusing the interiors with Zulu and Xhosa chic décor that celebrates the vibrant pulse of South Africa.
The owners’ love for Africa, its people and culture is reflected in the bold colours and superior fabrics, complemented by exquisite unique pieces that have been used to create ‘a jewellery box of gems’ to offset the mellow ambience of the original interiors by renowned South African interior designers, Cécile and Boyd’s.
At ground level, guests find an opulent open plan lounge and bar area, a tribute to the style and grace of the Zulu and Xhosa cultures. A designer marble bar offers guests the opportunity to interact with fellow travellers or spend quiet time reading a great novel discovered in the hotel’s library. Guests can select a fine Cape wine from the extensive handpicked wine collection or relax by the cosy fireplace.
Hout Bay Manor, protected by century old oak trees, was built from stone (600mm thick walls) and in traditional Cape Colonial style by Jacob Trautmann on an unspoilt piece of land, which had previously been part of the Kronendal Estate. It has redefined the essence of hospitality and is a tribute to old and new with unsurpassed luxury living at its best.
