“It's a magical place!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I couldn't recommend Hedge house more. Judy is such a fantastic host, and treated us so well for the whole time we were there. Every room is different, and each have their own unique features. She kindly provides fantastic biscuits, tea and coffee, juice and fresh milk in each room. The dining room is large and breakfast was again fantastic - a choice of cereals, fruit, yogurt, cooked breakfast and freshly made bread. The dining room is also great in the evenings with a wood burner (it was winter there when we went) and helped with comfortable and stylish chairs. The place has a very fresh and clean feel, with the bonus of a great view of some of the peaks of Table mountain. Judy spent a lot of time with us and also the other hosts; she also helped with directions and recommendations of things to do and see. I miss the whole experience very much.

Go and stay, you won't regret it!

I stayed a whole 7 nights there in bedroom 5! I absolutely loved it. HUGE comfy bed and a beautiful bathtub in the big bathroom.
Judy and her family are so welcoming and helpful, giving advice on the best restaurants to eat at, the best place to see the gorgeous views and which way up table mountain is easiest!
The guest house it built around Judy's home with 5 extra bedrooms that all have seperate entrances from the outside. They are all kitted out with fridges full of milk and juice, and cupboards with a kettle, teabags, coffee, fruit and biscuits. All the rooms have a unique design to them and are all cosy and tastefully decorated.
Easy walking distance from a shopping centre, a train station and a park, all in view of the top of table mountain.
I only left yesterday and I already want to go back and visit.
Don't miss an opportunity to visit!

Room Tip: If you love the sunrise room 5 is perfect

We stayed 2 nights here and loved it. Our room (5) was fabulous with huge bed, great bathroom and a terrace with views. Judy and Betty are wonderful. Every detail is covered from home made everythings to hooks just where you need them, fresh milk in a fridge in the room, fruit, lovely linens etc etc. breakfast was a treat too. You feel welcomed into a home, not just a business and jury takes time to talk to you. We will come back ASAP!

The moment you enter the wooden gate, you are warmly welcomed by a lush garden and charming owner, Judy. Situated in the leafy suburb of Newlands, this exceptional B&B is
comfortable, tastefully furnished with relaxed luxury. Abundant small thoughtful touches, beautiful views and a lovely swimming pool are just a few of the many extras. The breakfast is great, and the dinners I enjoyed, elegant. The rusks, biscuits, basket of fresh fruit and many different drinks in the room are generously topped up every day. The range of bathroom cosmetics are luxurious and products of South Africa. It is within easy walking distance to Cavendish square and Kildare centre - great shopping. I love this place!

Room Tip: All rooms are tasteful & very comfortable.

Really can't fault this place. Judy (owner) was extremely helpful, patient and always had plenty of advice to give about stuff to do while in Cape Town. The rooms are very well-sized, with all facilities accounted for. The B&B is located in one of the nicest areas of Cape Town - just on the border between Rondebosch and Newlands districts. Which includes a great view of the peaks in Table Mountain National Park! Certainly if I was to return to South Africa and Cape Town, I would be looking to stay here again.

The welcome, the comfort and the attention to detail make Hedge House stand out as one of the best B&Bs in Cape Town. It provided us with the perfect start to our latest holiday in South Africa. Judy's easy competence ensures not only great comfort and excellent home cooked food but a truely relaxing start to a holiday. Nothing is too much trouble to make your life easier from the loan of a forgotten adaptor to the last minute arrangement of alternative accomodation to help with sudden changes of plan. As others have said Judy 'is an amazing ambassador' for her City, a view we fully endorse.
