I think my wife and I have stayed at Redbourne more than 10 times, and we keep going back! Johnny and Sharon know just how to make you feel comfortable. It is so well situated high up in Orangezicht, from there its just a short walk and you are on the mountain looking down on the city. Rooms are comfy... More

My wife and I checked in here because of its convenient central location close to all attractions. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome - no request was too big or small. Johnny and Sharon were fabulous in providing personal service and making us feel at home. The views are spectacular, the place is spotlessly... More

We stayed at Redbourne Hilldrop Guesthouse for 3 nights. It is a beautifully kept house with a great view and very good breakfast. But above all the hosts are just wonderful. They are very warm and welcoming , took their time with us and helped us with planning our time in Cape Town. Thank you very much Sharon and Jonny

The Hilldrop has a fantastic location on the slopes of Table Mt. with stunning views. Sharon & Jonny are wonderful hosts, warm, helpful and very informative. Our room was most comfortable and the entire B&B is beautiful and well run. The only problem is resisting Sharon's delicious big breakfasts.

This guesthouse is brilliantly positioned for visiting the attractions of Cape Town. The owners are wonderfully friendly and happy to recommend and arrange restaurants, trips etc. The four of us (two couples) would definitely recommend it and would happily stay there again.

Extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming family. Great views as noted by others - also enjoyed a dip in the pool on arrival. Good breakfast overlooking Cape Town. You probably do need a car/taxi to get to the City Centre/Table Mountain/beach as the Guesthouse is 'up the hill' but a really good base for spending time in this fascinating City.

We stayed 4 nights at the Redbourne Hilldrop and couldn't fault it. Sharon and Johnny are brilliant hosts and by the end of our stay we felt as though we were staying with friends. Our room was comfortable and extremely spacious, with views down across Capetown. Sharon gave us lots of help and advice, asking us what we wanted to... More
