“A fantastic and extremely comfortable stay!”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

I stayed at Hedge House for 5 nights while I was in Cape Town for business. Judy and her team were wonderful hosts, so welcoming, friendly and they made my stay incredibly comfortable and relaxing. The rooms are a fantastic size and inlude every home-comfort you could ask for. I would recommend Hedge House to anyone visiting Cape Town – be it for business or pleasure. I will definitely be coming back.

July England was the consumate hostess. She was there to greet me when I arrived on a Thursday evening at 22h30 after a late flight from Johannesburg. I had a 3 course supper already laid out upstairs in a private suite, which incorprated a large comfortable king size bed and lounge suite. The electric blanket was thoughtfully on and I crawled into bed for a relaxing night's sleep. Breakfast was first class the next morning and Judy attended to every request with ease. Coffee was brewing and the newspaper was ready at hand to start the day. We had a roast leg of lamb that evening, prefering to eat at the Hedge and a great evening it turned out to be. The food was really scrumptuous. I actually somewhat wistfully remarked to Judy after my stay as I was leaving that it was very much a home from home. I highly recommend the Hedge to any business traveller.

Room Tip: Stayed upstairs in a large separate room with a lounge suite and double bed

This was our second stay at the Hedge house and we loved it. Clean rooms and excellent service. Judy and her staff are friendly and helpful. Betty makes the best scrambled eggs. It is a calm and relaxing environment. Excellent

We stayed in Room 4 which has its own private balcony, with table and chairs; the large bedroom is tastefully furnished with everything one could need including microwave, hair dryer, fresh flowers, home made biscuits each day, fresh milk, iced water, juices, The extra large bed was so comfortable and the sheets and towels were changed every day. What service! There was a very comfortable sofa and armchairs in the bedroom too so it was like an apartment! We were very comfortable indeed and the location was perfect for getting around Cape Town. We could highly recommend Hedge House. We wish we could have stayed longer than our 4 nights> Thank you so much Judy.

A group of six of us have just returned from a wonderful holiday in South Africa, helped largely by this great place. Hedge House provides the perfect base to explore Cape Town. It is situated in the elite Newlands district so you have tranquility all around yet one is only 15 minutes drive into the Waterfront, or the same short distance the other way to the excellent Constantia winelands. The owner, Judy, goes out of her way to help you and cooks up an excellent breakfast. The pool is a lovely feature to cool off after a day's sightseeing, and the rooms are well furnished, with huge beds and plenty of space. Highly recommended.

Being cricket fans we wanted to go to the cricket test match between South Africa and Australia at Newlands. The Hedge House is the ideal location for those people wanting to have somewhere to stay near the Newlands cricket and rugby grounds. It is only 5 minutes walk from the ground. It is completely safe to walk to and from the ground. It is a luxurious B&B in a very nice quiet street. The family/staff are all very friendly and breakfast in their dining room each morning was a delight. The swimming pool was much appreciated at the end of a long hot day at the cricket as well.
