A very enjoyable long-weekend. We found the cottage to be clean and well equipped; the location is quiet and very relaxing. Cathy was welcoming and helpful - no issues whatsoever, we'll doubtless be returning in the future.

Verified reviewexcellent

My family and I have stayed at Forest Hills many times over the last few years, and we would not hesitate to recommend it as a comfortable and relaxed place to stay in Cape Town. Both the cottage and the one bedroom en suite are spacious, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Cathy, the hostess, always goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and her presence is reassuring, but never intrusive. Forest Hills location is perfect for wine farms, great restaurants, beaches, mountain walks and shopping. We love staying here and recommend it highly!
