“A great place to stay and a little bit different in a quiet, quiet street”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

My mum and I stayed at Kidger House in 2011 and 2012. Our first stay 10 days,our second stay 3 weeks! Why did we like it? Well positioned in a leafy part of Capetown where we felt secure, and a very pretty house. We know the rooms well, we have stayed in 3 of them! Two offer very acceptable self-catering facilities for simple meals at home. Excellent breakfasts, and charming hosts. Somebody trimmed the tree back too much in the garden for shade for our sun loungers but I bet is has grown by now!
We have stayed at Kidger House under two different managments, one interim, but feel confident the new management will earn an excellent rating!

Room Tip: Frangipani was my favourite as it has its own terrace overlooking the garden. Trent has a lovely ba...

Delia is a most gracious hostess, Kidger House is just off Newlands drive and very easy to find.
I stayed in the Frangipani room which was spacious and well appointed. The Wifi was speedy, the bedroom and bathroom were both well heated, very tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have stayed in ever, with beautiful linen. I will definitely use Kidger house repeatedly. It is exceptional value for money.

Reviewed 18 March 2013

I was met at the gate by the manager Sinem and shown to my room, the Frangipani Suite. It was well furnished with a King sized bed, mini kitchenette, perfect for the traveling businessman who want to warm up a ready made meal which can be eaten on the patio. The bathroom was spacious and had all the conveniences one could ask for to include WiFi. The breakfast was also scrumptious.
