Hats off to Jonny and Sharon! Redbourne Hilldrop offers quality all the way. The views are superb. The guestrooms are spacious, tastefully furnished and comfortable. Breakfast is a la carte, impeccably served, and timeous. And there is no hesitation in going the extra mile to facilitate tours, meals, transport needs - in fact, nothing is too much trouble when it... More

We needed accommodation for one night only, close to the city bowl. Redbourne was a great choice: clean, spacious room, with lots of little extras like free sherry, and a chocolate on the pillow. Wonderful host and super breakfast!

This was my third stay at Redbourne Hilldrop and will not be the last. The highlight of Redbourne are the owners--Sharon and Jonny helped us in so many ways I can't even count them--organizing our transport from the airport and to the university, making reservations for restaurants and massages, giving us a ride when it took too long to get...

Myself and my husband stayed at Redbourne for only 3 nights but it was the most lovely 3 nights I have ever experienced in a guesthouse/b&b. Sharon and Jonnie, were fantastic hosts and made us feel so welcome and comfortable in their beautiful house. We were offered a spacious ensuite room which would comfortably have housed a young family or... More

My family and I spent two nights enjoying Johnny and Sharon's excellent hospitality. This came at the end of a wonderful week on the Cape. Their knowledge interest and pride in their city was obvious and they gave excellent recommendations following all of our queries. Everything from where best to park, eat, visit, shop, running routes etc.. Anything they did... More

Our first time in Cape Town and we were made to feel as if we had arrived home from our long journey. Jonny looked after the car and Sharon mothered us. The breakfasts were tailored to our preferences and we ate them while enjoying a perfect view of the city. We were advised of the best restaurants and indeed our... More

We recently visited South Africa, travelling around Cape Town and travelling the Garden Route, staying in a range of BnBs and guest houses. Without doubt the best place we stayed was Redbourne Hilldrop in Cape Town. Firstly it was so conveniently located, near to the city, Waterfront, Table Cape and access to southern tourist routes and airport. Secondly it was... More

As much as I love Cape Town, for me, staying in Redbourne Hilldrop is the way to love the city even more. It's a place where you can feel at home and have all the space you need for yourself. I loved the house, the rooms and the tasty breakfast with the stunning view. But it's not only the house,... More

I was fortunate enough to find this gem of a guesthouse and spent an entire week there with my daughter. To begin with, and what makes this place so special are the owners, Sharon and Jonny - perfect hosts to say the least. They suggested where we go and what we do and booked our tours for us. Our bedroom... More
