Situated in Newlands in the Western Cape, the Abbadale bed and breakfast accommodation establishment occupies a gracious double-storeyed house which was built in 1904. The high ceilings, wooden floors and shuttered cottage windows are typical of the architecture of the time. The rooms are large, bright and airy with views of the mountain, pool or garden. Oak trees dominate the large grounds, and there is plenty of secure parking. Squirrels and birds add their charm to this restful Cape garden.
All are en-suite except No 3 which has a private bathroom just across the passage.
Within walking distance ... Abbadale lies in the wind-free Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, close to Newlands Station and on one of the main access routes to the City and the Airport. Abbadale is only four minutes walk from the world renowned Newlands rugby and cricket stadiums and Keurboom Park. Cavendish Square (with its upmarket shops, restaurants and cinemas), the Western Province Cricket and Sports Club, Newlands Swimming Pool, Sports Science Institute and famous schools such as Bishops and Rondebosch, are also within walking distance (or an easy three minute drive away).
Easy to access via main boulevards or motorways ... TableMountain, V & A Waterfront, Nelson Mandela Gateway to Robben Island as well as museums, theatres, restaurants, night clubs, gardens, Houses of Parliament, the Company’s Gardens and other attractions of the historic heart of Cape Town are all within 15 minutes drive…
Other major draw cards such as Wine Routes, Cape Point, Hout Bay, Simonstown, Grand West Casino, Canal Walk, Ratanga Junction, the best beaches and Stellenbosch lie a little further afield, but are easily accessible.

The high-ceilinged bedrooms are large, bright and airy, and are tastefully furnished with period pieces. All have DSTV and tea and coffee-making facilities. Five are situated on the first floor, conveniently removed from the hurly burly of reception areas, kitchen and living quarters, and on the same level is an intimate sitting-cum-reading room with a library and a private interview/meeting space which is available to guests by arrangement.
Downstairs is one separate unit with own entrance. The bedroom has a double bed and there is a kitchenette and en suite bathroom with shower. All bedrooms are serviced daily and all linen, towels, etc. are provided (including swimming towels). The whole house is a smoke-free zone, and eating in the bedrooms is strongly discouraged.
From the N2 (road leading to Cape Town from the Airport) take Exit 8. This is Liesbeek Park Way. It narrows to single carriageway, and at that point changes its name to Camp Ground Road. Continue along until a green road sign on your right hand side has an arrow pointing left down Keurboom Road, and coincidentally at our house. We are No 1 Keurboom Road, so turn left at the traffic light and immediately left into the inlet to our driveway.
Camp Ground Road ends at Main Road where the new Pick and Pay is situated. From our house, this road runs past Newlands Cricket Ground.
