I stayed at Hedge House for only 1 night. It is very remote and has a nice garden with a pool. The room was very nice and comfortable. You can order an uber to get to Town. It's easy but takes a few minutes. This place is perfect if you want to enjoy the nice area of Capetown without staying...

The grounds and pool area are beautiful and immaculately cared for. Breakfast is served in the main house and begins with an elegant buffet featuring fresh fruit salad, cheeses,...
