We stayed at Fernwood Manor for 10 days from 6th January and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Sally and her team are exceptional - service, professionalism and the friendliness of all was amazing. The location was good for us as we were meeting up with friends who were staying in Rondebosch and the Manor is located in Newlands the next suburb and... More

We have stayed at Fernwood Manor four times and about to book our fifth! This beautiful Guesthouse really has it all. The gardens are perfect and restful, the bedrooms are spotlessly clean, well furnished, large and peaceful. The public rooms are tastefully furnished with everything you could wish for in the way of relaxation. Beautiful though it is in every... More

If you are looking for a spot where you can thoroughly take a time out, enjoy a beautiful garden, have wonderful breakfasts and linger by the pool - it is hard to find a match! Service is great, facilities top notch. It is well worth the price and the location is perfect, minutes away from wine estates and the Kirstenbosch... More

Could not ask for anything more. Nothing was bad about this stay, except the fact that I never wanted to leave the place it was so nice! So relaxing and enjoyable, definitely book here if you can, otherwise you are missing out on so much! Breakfast was delightful, but a little bit repetitive, especially if you aren't keen on eggs.

We recently spent 6 nights at this gorgeous B&B but still weren't ready to leave. It was a joy to be there amidst the friendly staff, the spacious rooms and the pretty garden from the second we arrived. Any need or desire anticipated and catered to with the minimum of fuss, breakfasts beyond belief and bedrooms I had a hard... More

I often think my return visits to Cape Town are because of this truly stunning 5 star Guesthouse in beautiful Fernwood. The level of service offered to every guest is simply unbelievable from restaurant recommendations and bookings, to arranging tours and excursions and providing detailed directions for those driving themselves around. And there is always the offer of a pot... More

Fernwood Manor was a beautiful place, impeccable service and convenient location. My room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The common areas were comfortable and homely and the staff were just so helpful and accommodating and friendly. I would certainly stay here again if I'm able to come back to Cape Town. Breakfast was great too!

I recently spent 9 relaxed and wonderful days at Fernwood Manor with my 2 daughters. Hats off to Sally and her very professional team. They are all absolutely first rate.

Thank you to Ian, Aubrey and Celeste. You made our stay extra special with your hospitality and friendliness. Fernwood Manor itself is lovely, but the extra touches from you guys made it even more special. I would highly recommend Fernwood, clean, neat and fresh look. Well designed outside and lounge areas. Hope to see you again xx Dijana from Abalone

I was absolutely blown away by the picturesque and quaint Fernwood Manor. It was home away from home and I felt like a princess. Be it for a holiday, work and/or both - Fernwood Manor caters to all your needs and is a great retreat at the end of a very busy day. Sally, Emanuella, Ian, Aubrey and the rest... More
