We loved our stay at Hedge House. We rented two side by side rooms for our family of three for seven days. The rooms were large, comfortable, well equipped and with great bathrooms. The breakfasts were super, with lots of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, home baked goodies and eggs ( any style ). Judy and Shirley were extremely helpful and...

I stayed in room #5 in May 2016 and it was lovely. I was part of a group that was traveling through S. Africa and fell in love with Hedge House, my room, the warmth of the hospitality and 'Betty's kitchen'. Tonight the gang is getting together for a potluck using recipes we downloaded from Betty's Kitchen. Our Canadian ingredients...

This is my second visit to the quaint Hedge House B&B. My first visit last December was lovely-- and this visit was just as incredible. I was met with the smiling faces of the Hedge House family whom are always kind and accommodating. It is a beautiful home and the rooms are lovely. Since my last visit, they have installed...

Due to my work, I have the privilege to travel and stay at Guest Houses quite often. Hedge House must be one of the best that I have stayed at. Our family went down to Cape Town for a quick stay to go and watch the cricket. So when we made the booking our only criteria was that it must...

Long overdue, however better late than never. On the suggestion of a travel shop employee in Calgary, Alberta, Hedge House was suggested as a nice place to stay in Cape Town and we are so glad we did that. Judy, the owner was outstanding in running this B&B! Our room was at the top of a spiral staircase, which was...

Our stay at Hedge House was a real treat. It's a romantic setting and best of all was the little visits from the pug called Caper. We really appreciated the off street parking and it was really easy to come and go without feeling like we are inconvenience to anyone. Breakfasts felt like a spoil since there was always a...

What a wonderful time we had in Cape Town largely due to Judy, her charming staff and Family. They could not have been more helpful and kind. You would be hard pushed to find anywhere more perfect to stay. Quiet, comfortable and waited on hand and foot. Nothing was too much trouble for Judy, she even organised the most marvellous...

After a harassing journey which involved racing to the Kruger Airport in Nelspruit, narrowly missing a connecting flight in Jo'burg, to arrive in Cape Town without luggage, fellow travelers will understand the level of succor and comfort required to make it all feel better. Fortunately, I was checked in at Hedge House, and that DID make up for it all....

Hedge House must be the best B&B ever.
