We had a large, comfortable room which was excellent. Sally and her team could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Nothing w too much trouble and they made our stay perfect. Great location with very good food. Loved it.

Just so so lovely, and we have booked again for next year already. Fernwood Manor is everything we wanted. Tucked away in a pleasant suburb but handy for Cape Town, Constantia, etc., Sally should be immensely proud of what she has achieved, ambiance, style just ooze. Room 5 is special, overlooking the mountains, large spacious bedroom, separate dressing area, large...

We stayed for four nights in the Rose Suite and what a wonderful stay it was......from the welcoming by the owner to the farewell from the Receptionist the entire stay was exemplary. The Rose Suite is slightly apart from the rest of the rooms and that was such an appealing part for us......beautifully furnished and decorated room, extra large bathroom...

Fernwood manor is just a bit out of Cape town in Newlands. Personally my wife and I prefer to be in what is a relatively peaceful area where there is less likelihood of meeting crime and we usually begin our visit in this suburb. The house itself was originally the family ho,e of the present owner and has been extended....

My husband and I grew up in Cape Town and on a recent return to the city from Hong Kong, decided to forgo staying with family and spend some time in one of our favorite areas of Cape Town, it was the best decision we made. From the moment we arrived we felt well taken care of, extremely friendly staff...

We stayed here for a week to watch England play cricket at nearby Newlands. It was the perfect place to stay. Quiet, peaceful and away from the crowds. Beautiful rooms (we had 9, 5 and 8) all of which were very big, especially 5. Very good breakfast and lovely staff. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful guesthouse in a lovely, tranquil part of Cape Town. We stayed in 2 different rooms over a 10 day period and they were both lovely - the Almond Suite in particular is simply lovely. We've stayed in other good quality accommodation over the years in our visits to Cape Town, and this is without question the...

Have been staying at Fernwood Manor for a number of years. It never fails to achieve the highest standards in service, room standards and quality.

This was truly a high quality guest house. Beautiful! Everything was immaculately well maintained, the room was comfortable and the setting very lush, with stunning views onto Table Mountain. The location is in a very peaceful part of the city, very close to the botanical gardens which are well worth a visit. Special thanks to Emanuela who went out of...
