Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

An amazing B&B. Judy is the epitome of the hostess. Nothing is too much effort. We were recommended to Hedge House and were blown away, the room was superb and Judy was so helpful, right from the start. She could not do too much to help. Sunday was a problem with food, but she rang round and found out the restaurants open. We were there for the cricket and the B&B is ideally situated for Newlands. We thorough to enjoyed our one night there. Unfortunately we were booked into another for the next two nights ...... big mistake !!!!!
Thank you Judy.

This is my second visit- stayed last year- & the fact I will do on my visit next year probably says it all!

I stay in large hotels for about 100 night a year in the UK but they struggle to match the informal and relaxed setting provided by Judy & team who are willing to help & advise the visitor.

A great breakfast in an thoroughly unpretentious & friendly place.
Thank- you!

Unfortunately we only stayed two nights in the delightful room 3 and on the third day we had to fly back, very late at night. Our room was not available for the whole Sunday but owner Judy couldn't have been more helpful. Not only could we put our suitcases in the hall, but she offered us their private bathroom when we wanted to shower and change before our flight.
The room and bathroom were large and clean and nice detail: it sported two comfortabele chairs.Very often hotels only offer 1 comfortable chair. The garden is delightful and quiet, the breakfast is all you can wish for. By the way: Judy and her daughter are wonderful chefs. When you tell her a few hours before, mostly you can have dinner there too.
We cannot over recommend this place.

We can only endorse what has been written previously, Hedge House is a delightful place run with imagination and fun by Judy and her team. from the start we were made welcome & after a couple of days felt part of the family. Nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was beautifully cooked with lots of choice and dinner was an option we didn't expect, but was so good we only had one evening meal out in our 5 days. Judy even arranged car hire fir us which was excellent. We hope to return next year.

Upon entering this luxurious guesthouse you feel welcome and somewhat at home. Having stayed at Hedge House for 4 weeks there was not a moment I felt homesick as the staff and family really made the stay a pleasant one, even taking dinner orders of our choice, not to mention the surprise dinners so delicately planned for our palettes. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and unlike other guesthouses I have frequented there certainly is sufficient coffee, tea, milk and cookies in the rooms for early morning rises. Judy, the pool looks great!!!!

Room Tip: Al rooms were spacious

Hedge House is a quaint, attractive, high quality B&B tucked away in the beautiful suburb of Newlands. We visited in December which is a summer (peak) time for the city but were happily situated away from the chaos of the beaches and throngs of tourists. It was a calm, quiet home away from home, yet we were still close to local malls, popular shopping areas and restaurants.

We loved the boutiques on Dean Street and the variety of excellent eateries nearby. The charismatic B&B owner, Judy Goble was so friendly and gave us lots of tips on where to go and what to see during our visit.

Our room was lovely and had disabled access for my elderly mother. When we weren't spiriting around town we were relaxing on the stunning deck by the pool in the sunshine. We felt so welcome and were treated like treasured guests.

Room Tip: We chose the room on the ground floor by the beautiful vegetable garden. Easy access for wheelchairs...

I agree with most of the very positive statements about this place - the house, the garden, the atmosphere, the warm service - but also feel that it needs to decide whether it is a guest house or a family home. I was there at a busy early January time and the owner's children and grandchildren were either living there or visiting and, charming as the family is, this created some chaos and inconsistency. This was not helped when the lovely owner, who probably badly needed a break, suddenly went off with her family on a few days' holiday. Although a particularly charming young woman took over on the second day, there was initially no one in charge and the organization suffered. Order was restored, and the place really is special, but guests may need to know that this problem could recur, unless there is a clearer demarcation re the management.

Room Tip: The room with mountain view is very spacious and has a large elegant private balcony.
