overview

Koornhoop Manor House is an owner-run guest house in the suburb of Observatory, Cape Town, just below the towering Devil’s Peak as it runs down to the Liesbeek River. Koornhoop Manor House is just 2 minutes’ walk from Observatory centre.

The village centre hosts an eclectic range of shops, restaurants, pubs and music venues.

The area was named after the Astronomical Observatory which was founded in the 1800s and is to this day one of the world’s leading astronomical research establishments. ”Obz” is also home to Groote Schuur Hospital where the first heart transplant was carried out by Christian Barnard in 1967.
