Koornhoop Manor House


Hi and Welcome. We're an owner-run guest house in the suburb of Observatory, Cape Town - below the towering Devil's Peak as it runs down to the Liesbeek River.

Just out of the city centre, yet close to all the major highways, train station, UCT  ('walking distance to Groote Schuur Hospital'' and UCT Medical School)
buses - Observatory is a cosmopolitan and vibey enclave, populated by academics, professionals, artists and students. The village centre hosts an eclectic range of shops, restaurants, pubs and music venues.

Koornhoop Manor House is just 2 minutes walk from Observatory Centre.  We have 8 ensuite double/single rooms.


Ajacent to Manor House is our spacious furnished self-catering accommodation  ( No. 11 Obz)  with 3 bedrooms, lounge, dining /kitchen, private garden and off road parking.





We (Vic and Trish) started Koornhoop Manor House as a guest house in 1989 - one of the first established in the country, and a founder member of the Guest House Association of South Africa. We are happy to assist with planning your visit and airport transfers.

We offer a full-spread continental breakfast, secure parking, a beautiful big garden to relax in, and personalised service from your hosts - Vic and Trish.

Around 90% of our custom is from our regular guests and referrals.
