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 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.


We also have adjacent to the Manor House a spacious furnished self-catering house     (No. 11 Obz)   with 3 bedrooms, lounge dining area, kitchen and with its own private garden and off road car 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.
