We had three rooms for 6 of us, 2 rooms by the pool and one in the main house. All rooms were very comfortable, lovely towels, amazing Charlotte Rhys toiletries, dressing gown and slippers, extremely...

We went back to Fernwood Manor this year, having been there last year. It says a lot that you go back to a place and it was interesting to see that many of the peole staying there were also repeat visitors. Fernwood is not a very big 'B&B' - about 10 rooms I think. The staff and owner are all...

Were there a few years ago and loved everything about Fernwood. So we decided to come again, and didn't regret it. Rooms very comfortable (had to change after 3 nights because fully booked), great breakfast buffet, friendly service. The location just perfect: very calm, you get to good restaurants in the neighborhood, to the golf courses, to the table mountain,...

We stayed at Fernwood for a single night and wished we stayed longer. The room was very neat and everything we needed was in the room. The bathroom was very elegant and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The included Breakfast was divine as the special of the day was smoked salmon on toasted ciabatta. Amazing.

We just visited Fernwood Manor for 4 nights and can only recommend that you stay here. We stayed in room 10 which has a separate small bedroom off the main room which served as the perfect sleeping arrangement for our 3 year old daughter. Breakfast is delicious (plenty of both warm and cold options) and the staff is very friendly...

We stayed at Fernwood Manor for 6 nights following a recommendation from a friend back in the U.K. It proved to be the perfect start to our holiday!
