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 en-suite double and single rooms.

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

More about us...
We 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.
