We had visited Cape Town before, but Jonny and Sharon were exceptionally helpful with suggestions and advice on what best to do and visit. The location is excellent - within walking distance of the cable...

Beautiful views of the city and Table Mountain, very friendly and extremely helpful owners. They gave us lots of great tips for dinner and things to do and see in and around Cape Town. We would definitely stay there again!

What made my week's stay at Redbourne Hilldrop so special was the extraordinary attention that Jonny and Sharon paid to ensuring that their guests' every need was attended to promptly and always with a smile. The guest house provided little extras for free, like local phonecalls and WiFi. They were always ready to give good advice on where to go...

We had 3 nights in Cape Town and we were very happy with this place, not far from the city or other places to visit in Cape Town. Allowedly, the rooms and their furniture might have seen better times. But, who cares - they are charming though and really clean and tidy. Breakfast was an every day morning event with...

We are well travelled with various experiences, but the Redbourne offered something special with the friendliness and attention to our needs. Sharon and Jonny were wonderful.... and provided the most superb mushrooms with their breakfast. The rest was great too, eaten as we all looked out on Victoria and Alfred waterfront. It made you realise the importance of great customer...

This was the first time we had been to Cape Town and the first B&B we sampled. We were tempted to give it five stars but we had some other wonderful places to compare it with. Our bedroom was lovely. The downstairs bathroom was fine except that the toilet did not have a door which was a bit of a...
