"Lovely guest house in Ideal location"

4 nights Arrived 13 Oct 2019
"Small, well-appointed and well-run guest house in a safe area with very attentive and helpful owners who gave us lots of advice as to restaurants, day trips, best walking routes etc.

The location is excellent - a 10 mins walk to the stop for the hop-on-hop-off bus which we used for 2 days of our 3 day Cape Town visit, within a 10 minute walk of Kloof St. for restaurants, and a short taxi ride from The Waterfront.

Breakfast was plentiful, lots of choices, fresh fruit, local breads and pastries, plus cooked breakfast if required.

Would certainly base ourselves here if we visit Cape Town again." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 4n in South Africa; 3n in Botswana

"An absolute gem in the centre of Cape Town"

1 night Arrived 25 Feb 2018
"This was quite an experience - sadly for only one night.

A very friendly and helpful welcome, and a room and ensuite that just could not be faulted whether in respect of size, facilities or extras. They even provided a basket containing a frisbee to go to the beach!

Breakfast was delicious and nicely served.

The owners had simply thought of everything." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia; 5n in South Africa

"Fantastic!"

5 nights Arrived 6 Sep 2017
"This was more like a 5 star hotel rather than a guest house, certainly one of our favourites during our trip. Our room was on the ground floor with French doors to the side garden. It was squeaky clean with a VERY comfortable bed and lovely bathroom.

The staff here were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. They helped with driving suggestions and directions, booked taxis and reservations for evening meals and were always sociable without being intrusive.

The food at breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cereals, meats and fruit followed by anything cooked on request and everything was of high quality and beautifully presented. The communal areas were bright, well decorated and immaculately clean.

Unfortunately it was too cold to make use of the pool, but if we ever returned to Cape Town, we would have no hesitation in recommending and staying here- we loved it!" See all these reviews: 10n in South Africa; 3n in Zimbabwe; 2n in Botswana

"Absolutely outstanding in every way."

3 nights Arrived 13 Apr 2016
"As world travelers, we are able to compare the facilities where we have stayed with others. I can honestly say that Four Rosmead is one of the finest, if not the finest, guest house where we have ever stayed.

To begin with, the facility is beautiful and the decor is tasteful and elegant. The staff and particularly Jade, one of the managers, is attentive to every detail of each and every guest's needs and without having to be asked, checks on each party's plans, needs, etc. Jade and the other manager, Sonia, are never too busy to help with any and every issue and are incredibly accommodating and caring, especially in view of the fact that Capetown can be an overwhelming city to a new visitor. In addition, the breakfasts were outstanding and the other staff were exceptionally polite and helpful.

I recommend a stay at Four Rosmead to any visitor to Capetown without hesitation." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia; 6n in South Africa

"Four Rosemead Cape Town."

1 night Arrived 15 Feb 2016
"Our last night in Cape Town. Again, like Acorn House, a good location in Cape Town.

Room was quite small but adequate for a one night stay. Staff were very helpful and held our luggage for the day before departing for the airport.

As with all the places we stayed the staff were a credit to the Country and we found this to be a fitting end to a wonderful holiday." See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa
