My father and I spent a week at Hedge House in September 2020.
We came back to Cape Town for the months of March and April 2021, and there was no doubt where we would stay. This is simple .. the best place possible.
Judy and Shirley have created a haven of tranquility in Rondebosch. It is conveniently located, has the most comfortable and 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.
Shirley is a such a lovely and considerate host, her breakfast was super delicious.
I utterly enjoyed my stay here!
Will definitely be back again.

It's a wonderful little gem!
Shirley was absolutely wonderful, she welcomed my little family, as well as our dog with so much warmth.
The homemade biscuits in the room was a nice surprise, the breakfast every morning was a treat and the swimming pool was a most everyday!

My favourite place in Cape Town!
I stayed in Hedge House for three weeks in the end of 2020 till mid January 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 were closed for a while but still we could travel easily do the hikes and safari.
Not many tourists but still almost everything was open.
Highly recommended place with kind and openhearted hospitality.
We loved it!
I enjoyed everything, comfort, details like warm flooring in the bathroom and the most comfortable room.
We have known you forever.
The perfect stay! Thank you Jude.

A Very Happy Birthday, Judy ! I'd like to say a few words on behalf of all the guests who've been staying in Hedge House over the years and to whom you and this place represents a home away from home in Cape Town. You mean so much to so many people, and I have returned here - now again escaping the frozen North of Scandinavia- many times. Our youngest, Philip , who's 13 , said just this morning that he prefers to stay - not in grand hotels but at Hedge House where he knows everybody, everybody knows him, there are the dogs, the pool - and Betty's kitchen ! What more could you wish for ? Betty's buns and omelettes are well known in our household, and always measured against the real thing - but I know I can never live up to the original. This is a happy, warm place and even if it is the most well known gate code in CT, one feels safe here.
I remember the first time I came - I had just arrived off the overnight flight and felt tired and jet lagged , and you just looked at me and said : you look like someone who could do with a good long walk and fresh air. And you then took me off to Kirstenbosch and marched me up the mountain ! You are a great reader of people, and this is such a professional but personal home which you let us all be part of - thank you so much, Judy.
Thank you so much for giving us such a delightful stay in your lovely home!
You have gone beyond the call of duty!
All the little extras ... homemade biscuits, roses etc did not go unnoticed.
We hope to be back in the not too distant future.
