About Us

Built by the Noakes family in 1952 as a family home, the Manor features a classic Cape Dutch gable. Transformed into a boutique hotel in 1995, the spa wellness centre was added in 1996. Known as the Zwaanswyk area, this part of the Constantia Valley has become a haven for lovers of nature and stillness.

The Steenberg Estate, originally known as the Zwaanswyk, was granted to Catherina Ustings in 1688 and was one of the first farms in the Western Cape. Its Cape Dutch homestead was erected in about 1740, and its verandah and outbuildings were added at the beginning of the 19th century. It was declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation on 7 October 1983.

Manor Suites

The Manor Suites are located in the main manor house and consist of a large bedroom, lounge area and en-suite bathroom. Room 8 is situated on the ground floor and has access to the main terrace and the entrance courtyard whilst room 9 is situated upstairs on the first floor.

Classic Suites

The classic suites are located at the top of the gardens above the main house and overlook the Constantia Valley, the back of Table Mountain and the Cape Flats. These suites consist of a single bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a terrace.

Superior Suites

The Superior Suites are located at the bottom of the garden, in close proximity to our Spa. These rooms have terraces and consist of a medium-sized room with an adjacent lounge area and an en-suite bathroom. Rooms 13 and 14 have connecting doors and are recommended for family bookings.

SPA wellness

Stillness Manor & Spa is based in Tokai, an equestrian area at the edge of the Constantia Valley. The Spa is set in the midst of beautiful and lush surroundings. Our well-equipped facilities are unique in Cape Town.

Stillness Spa offers a multitude of ways to improve your mind, body and spirit; from therapeutic massages to relaxing facials.

What our visitors say about us

Fantastic Experience

A lovely venue with fantastic views across the city and surrounding mountains. The gardens are magnificent, and the staff could not do enough for us. At present the Manor does not do dinner however, that is not a problem as plenty of restaurants within 15 mins drive. We also took the 2-hour Relaxation Spa experience which was absolutely fantastic and up there with the best we’ve had

Stillness Manor was our last Guest House on our 5-week holiday and we definitely saved the best till last.
Lovely welcome from Dmitri the owner when we arrived, then shown to our room it was enormous and the view was outstanding.
Would definitely recommend this gorgeous place, and we hope to come back as soon as we can.

An Incredible Value, Beautiful Grounds

Spent three nights last week at the Stillness. Amazing views of Cape Town, Table Mountain, the rooms are older but nice. 3 pools, all of them nice. Had a great massage at the spa. Easy transport to many restaurants nearby. Breakfast included and was very good. Strongly recommend. Ownership and management exceptional.

Beautiful property with amazing views. Enjoyed the very clean room and the spa was great. Service was great and owners could not do more to make you feel welcome. Great restaurants only five minutes away.

Warm, Comfortable Stay.

My wife and I were very pleased with everything that Stillness Manor had to offer. It was one of our best stays in a long time. We appreciated that we were greeted upon arrival. Wood was available in our room for the fireplace. It was really a perfect get-away.
