I had the most wonderful stay! The room was comfortable and clean and Shirley was the best host - welcoming, kind and very helpful =) The breakfast was excellent. I definitely recommend Hedge House if you are looking for accommodation in Newlands. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality!
We stayed a week at Hedge House while we were looking for a longer term solution. The property is very charming with nicely sized, clean rooms and a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere in the common areas. The location within Cape Town is also great: you are in the middle of a suburban part of town, a 10 minute Uber ride away from down town and only 15 minutes away from beaches. But the hosting was the best aspect of all: Shirley is wonderful and helped us immensely.
The room is beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the service was impeccable. We will definitely return. The location is very good with excellent walking trails nearby. The host was very helpful.
This property was an old Victorian building converted into a guest house. It is quirky and quaint. The room I was allocated on the ground floor was obviously built on. It was small and intercommunicating with the one next door which left noise an issue, as one could hear everything going on in the room adjacent. The amenities were present, but did not work, such as the TV and it only was put into order after breakfast on the day of vacation, which was a shame. However I did get to watch part of the funeral for Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Breakfast was wonderful...a fruit salad which was full of so many varied fruits, beautifully prepared...a bircher muesli to rival that of the Table Bay hotel in the Waterfront...good coffee...excellent. Would I stay again? probably not, only because it was a mission to locate and actually not in the area I expected it to be, having researched a billet in Claremont and this one ended up being in Rondesbosch. Shirley Nel the lady manager was charming and helpful, and she came to collect me from the point in Claremont where I parked, unable to locate Hedge House, even using Google maps. Thank you to Shirley and all her efforts to please and placate...and for the great breakfast.…
The room was nice and quiet, with a great view on the mountain. Jody was really kind, always attentive to the guests. Breakfast was excellent. I definitely recommend this destination if you are looking for a accommodation in Rondesbosch District.
My father and I spent a week at Hedge House in September 2020. We came back to Cape Town for the months of March & April 2021, and there was no doubt where we would stay. This is simply the best place possible. Judy and Shirley have created a haven of tranquility in Rondebosch. It is conveniently located, has the most comfortable & luxurious bedrooms, and the breakfasts are a treat to look forward to every morning. Shirley has looked after us so professionally and in the most kind and caring manner. To be able to walk down to Keurboom Park and the Rondebosch Boys High playing fields every afternoon has been a special bonus for us and my dogs.
I stayed in Hedge House for three weeks in the end of 2020 till mid Jan 2021. It was beautiful experience. Great place which gives feeling of South Africa. Delicious breakfast, very comfortable rooms and the whole experience was just perfect. The beaches where closed for a while but stil we could travel easily do the hikes and safari. Not many tourist but still almost everything was open. Highly recommended place with kind and openhearted hospitality. We loved it! Thank you!
I have stayed at Hedge House many times and it is always a haven of peace and tranquility, a real 'home from home'. Judy is a wonderful host and her family always friendly and so helpful. The rooms are spacious and very nicely furnished and the breakfasts are delicious - really amazing with plenty of choice. Hedge House is close to a park, has off street parking and is not far from the airport. I highly recommend it!!
We have stayed at Hedge House several times and have always enjoy our time there. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. We travel with our dog and initially were concerned we might have difficulty finding accommodation that not only met our expectations, but permitted a dog. Hedge House is perfect! The location is ideal as it is close to a large park as well as a small mall with a Woolworths shop. It is an easy drive both into and out of the downtown and airport. Judy is very accommodating should we have questions or requests and as others have mentioned breakfast is very good. There is easy secure off-street parking, our room had both a bathtub and separate shower, small safe, microwave and bar fridge. Another bonus is that Judy lives on the premises with her two dogs. Her dogs are well-behaved, very good with people and other dogs. They are nice, quiet and unobtrusive. This is definitely our #1 choice for staying in Cape Town. We have stayed there in October of both the last two years, May 2019 and March 2020. We will continue to book here for our Cape Town visits.…
Hedge House Has been our chosen place to stay in Cape Town every year for nearly 10 years and has started to feel like our second home, so welcome are we made by owner, Judy, her family and her lovely staff. Located in the southern suburbs, Hedge House is only a 10 to 15 minute drive from Cape Town International airport but is a haven of peace and serenity. It is ideally situated for Newlands Cricket Ground, a 5 minute walk away, the city itself, the Constantia Wine region, and the False Bay Coast. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Hedge House breakfasts are always delicious and varied. We love it here, and cannot wait to return.
