I stayed only one night here in January of 2016 before catching a flight out, but it was a lovely stay. I stayed in the Medindi Self Catering Cottage only because they didn't have much room left. I feel very lucky because it truly felt like I was home. The cottage has an adorable full kitchen, and the bathroom was...

I had the most wonderful stay here in December. Service from every staff member was generous, personal and warm with excellent attention to detail. They were also very patient with a certain amount of ineptitude on my part in relation to the tv remotes! And the omelette for breakfast was second to none! Medindi felt like a (very elegant) home...

The guest house is quite easy to find although it is located along a residential small street and with a good map/GPS you will find it. Parking inside the gate is limited, but it seems to be safe on the street. We did not have any problems anyway. The atmosphere is very friendly and the staff makes you feel very...

I spent 11 nights at Medindi Manor while working in Cape Town. Medindi Manor is clean and well kept. The staff are all wonderful and welcoming. I was in a car accident on my 2nd day in Cape Town and all the staff & management checked on me to see how I was feeling, they offered to move me down...

The rooms are beautifully decorated, the staff helpful and efficient, the gardens gorgeous (I saw a chameleon on a bush one morning - it doesn't feel like you are in the middle of the city), the breakfasts lavish (I put on half a stone) and all it all it's the nicest guesthouse you could stay in - I have stayed...

I stayed for 10 nights. Great place to stay. The rooms are clean and most of the staff are friendly. I would love to stay here again. There was a miscommunication about the arranged transport to University of Cape Town. However, finally the problem solved.

We loved our first visit here so much, we just had to return - and if anything, it was even better. We were welcomed back like old friends, and offered a choice of rooms: private outside suite, or in the main house. Both are 5-star quality, in spite of this being a historic mansion, and the attention to detail is...
