Reviewed March 30, 2014

Everything was just perfect, from cleanliness to the staff and even the pillows were just great! Very convenient location, and the lovely charm of a well renovated manor. Relaxing environment and garden. One of the places where you just "feel home" from the minute you arrive!
I warmly recommend.

Room Tip: I had the first room on the right when entering the main house - just perfect.

We stayed 10 days at Medindi Manor while on a working trip to Cape Town. We loved everything about it. The attractive Edwardian house is situated in a quiet suburban area. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and pleasantly furnished.

There are restaurants and a bar within 2 minutes walk . Rondebosch Common 200m away is a lovely place for an early morning stroll with its views of Table Mountain. The city centre and Waterfront are 10-15 minutes by car or a 7-8 euro taxi journey.

The two things that set Medindi apart for us were the staff and the beautiful gardens. We found all of the staff to be friendly and efficient. They created a very welcoming atmosphere and took a real interest in making their guests' stay a happy one. There was never a moment in the 10 days that we felt anything other than right at home.
The lush garden is a delightful place in which to be. We enjoyed the tranquility of sitting on the stoep for a coffee or a sun-downer.

Luckily our schedule allowed us to take in some tourist activities and a few good hikes. The staff always pointed us in the right direction when it came to restaurants, hikes and other attractions. All of their recommendations were spot on.

Highlights were a visit to Kirstenbosch Gardens and hikes up Table Mountain and Lion's Head. Restaurants that we enjoyed outside the immediate area were Barristers and Basilico in Newlands and the Wild Fig in Observatory.

Medindi Manor was a real find and if we are lucky enough to return to Cape Town some day this is where we want to stay.

Fifteen minutes from Cape Town relaxing and secure guest house with pool and garden. All staff are helpful and pleasant. House is well kept and a hearty breakfast provided. Restaurants and bar five minute walk if required. As located in southern suburbs do not use city taxis to and from Cape Town they are costly and do not always know there way around away from the city. Medindi will recommend best taxi companies to use. Thanks to Jeanine and Stella a great stay.

I stayed for 5 days recently and loved it. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable and characterful, with antique furniture, big windows letting in a fresh breeze from the garden, and soft, luxurious bed and towels. My room had a stunning view of the mountain as well. I felt very safe and peaceful, and appreciated the excellent service from the staff. The breakfasts were delicious--fresh juices, fruit salad, granola and great coffee, followed by a full cooked breakfast if desired. My trip was for work, but the quiet verandah (on two levels) and gorgeous garden with pool were very tempting and I'd love to go back for a holiday. Can't recommend it highly enough, definitely my favourite place in SA after many trips.

Room Tip: Room 207 has a gorgeous view of the mountain.

This kind ok a boutique guest house, incredible comfortable, nice towels and sheets, beautiful bedroom and an amazing garden. They even have a swimming pool outside for hot days. The wifi works fine and the staff is so friendly!! It is not located at the water front and you must get a taxi (around USd 12-15) if you want to go. It is close to the UCT and airport and the neighborhood has a few restaurants around. Nothing fancy, but a quite good Thai food on the corner. This area is residential. The price of Medindi is what we call "a great cost benefit" with more benefits :)

Visited Cape Town for a course at Red Cross Childrens hospital in November 2013. Stayed for 10 days. The service was exceptional. Friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is excellent and the coffee to die for... Lovely garden and rooms. Truly a home away from home.
