Staying at this guest house warms my heart. Everything is just perfect - from the room to the breakfast to the garden and pool, not to mention the staff. Emanuela - you rock!! I can't wait to go back.

This was our third visit to this establishment, and we found the standards have not dropped at all over the past 3 years. Warm and caring hosts and staff, spotlessly clean and well serviced rooms, clean and refreshing pool. We found the breakfast to be the best we had out of the 7 B&Bs we visited on this 28 day...

After 8 years we revisited South Africa, and with such great memories of our stay at Fernwood Manor last time it was one of our first reservations. However, we had some trepidation - had we exaggerated how good it had been, would it still be as immaculate as last time, would it still be as current as it had been....

We stayed at Fernwood for 4 nights before moving to Stellenbosch for a family wedding. This was the perfect place to relax before the wedding! We had three rooms for 6 of us, 2 rooms by the pool and one in the main house. All rooms were very comfortable, lovely towels, amazing Charlotte Rhys toiletries, dressing gown and slippers, extremely...

We went back to Fernwood Manor this year, having been there last year. It says a lot that you go back to a place and it was interesting to see that many of the peole staying there were also repeat visitors. Fernwood is not a very big 'B&B' - about 10 rooms I think. The staff and owner are all...

Were there a few years ago and loved everything about Fernwood. So we decided to come again, and didn't regret it. Rooms very comfortable (had to change after 3 nights because fully booked), great breakfast buffet, friendly service. The location just perfect: very calm, you get to good restaurants in the neighborhood, to the golf courses, to the table mountain,...

We stayed at Fernwood for a single night and wished we stayed longer. The room was very neat and everything we needed was in the room. The bathroom was very elegant and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The included Breakfast was divine as the special of the day was smoked salmon on toasted ciabatta. Amazing.
