We cannot say enough about the beautiful gem that is 4 Rosmead. Rooms are exquisite and breakfast excellent. Decor perfect, modern but high end tasteful. Small gardens and pool equally striking. As we arrived very late they organized a beautiful Ploughman's platter to be left in the room. Outstanding location. Staff are a master class in hospitality. Breakfast is generous,...

We stayed in Four Rosmead towards the end of our honeymoon. The room, which had a balcony was luxurious, comfortable and fitted with all the amenities you could need. Having been refurbished, this boutique hotel looked as if new. The views were amazing and the gardens, patio and indoor areas are classy and impeccably clean. One of the best things...

The rooms, food and hospitality are outstanding. The staff could not do enough to help, even washing the car before we had to hand it back to the hire company! Excellent suggestions for activities, restaurants and trips.

This superb place has a recent major refurbishment, and everything is great. Our room was up stairs, large and comfortable. lots of little touches like little chocolates on the pillow, plenty of nice big towels, good beds, and nice thick carpet. It is really what you would call a boutique hotel, though only breakfast is served. Oh yes, great breakfasts!...

We had a wonderful stay at the Four Rosmead for 5 nights at the beginning of March. This was our first trip to Cape Town and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly – nothing was too much trouble. A special mention to Sonja and Jade who kindly answered some questions I had on email prior to our arrival. With...

We stayed at Four Rosmead for 3 nights, immediately after landing in Cape Town. It's a beautiful property, nicely decorated with lots of nice, little touches e.g. a carafe of sherry to help yourself from if you fancy a drink when you get in! The staff were lovely, all very friendly and only too happy to help with recommendations of...

I came to Four Rosmead after a 10-day safari from Namibia where I was looking forward to a comfortable bed and a few days of relaxation. I was not disappointed as the Four Rosmead met all of my requirements. Although located in a quiet residential neighborhood, its only a few blocks away from Kloof Street, a busy high street, packed...

Wife and I just came back from Cape Town. First stop on the tour was a 3 night stay at Four Rosmead. We had never booked a guesthouse but knew we were not B&B folks. I took a chance based on reviews and pictures. Loved it. It was big enough not to be on top of folks. It was private...

We really enjoyed our stay here. When we saw the view from our rooms we were just blown away, waking up every morning to Lions head and city skyline. Breakfast is just amazing, so is the people and service. This is more like a super duper 5 star exclusive guest house and not like a hotel. Love the location and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed for 3 nights and the staff would ask what our plans were everyday and how they could help. The room was spacious and well decorated. The common area was very relaxing and beautiful. The breakfast was amazing and very fresh. My husband loved the granola! Some restaurants were close by. The neighbourhood was...
