We are one of Fernwoods many regulars. Its the place we recommend to all our friends. Its a beautiful property in an amazing location beneath the mountain, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and the staff are wonderful and attentive. I just feel so sorry for them right now as I imagine the virus is affecting them badly. We wish Sally and Emmanuelle and all their staff well and look forward to seeing them again in December- can’t wait virus permitting.

This is my favourite place to stay in Cape town for business and on occasion, personal trips. Professional, attention to detail, friendly and bespoke accommodation. This is a B&B with luxury quality and the breakfasts are really good!

I travel frequently for work and we came across Fernwood Manor a few years ago. Sally / Emmanuela and the team are always a pleasure to deal with and they always make you feel so welcome. You are definitely getting value for money when booking with Fernwood. I look forward to having a long business relationship with Fernwood.

Friends who travel to Capetown frequently warmly recommended the Fernwood. We booked there in lively expectation of a week’s stay. Unfortunately the Corona virus spoiled our plans. There are no more flights there and S.A. Is in partial lock down. Although we han unrefundable reservations and we had to cancel within any reasonable time for a refund anyway, the management graciously offered not to charge us. It must be a hard time for them, but they let their guests interest prevail. Ten points to them!

We needed to book a night in a southern suburb guest house and I selected Fernwood Manor based on a good rating and value for money on a well known accommodation booking website. We arrived late at night and only took in the pretty garden view and that of the mountain from Room 10 when we woke up the following morning. The room comprised 2 bedrooms; one with a three quarter bed, a compact sitting room with sofa, table and two chairs and an ensuite bathroom with shower in the bath. There was window in the bathroom with the consequence that turning on the light resulted in quite a noise from the extractor fan. We enjoyed the buffet style breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool. Was rather glad that we were not staying to relax by the pool as the noise from the building site in the adjoining property was pretty persistent and loud when we left after breakfast.
