We stayed 3 nights at Roodenberg house in January ’12. What a treasure! This small guesthouse is about 15 minutes drive from the airport and is located in a quiet, but safe, area about 10 minutes drive from the city centre. Two decent restaurants are within 5 minutes walk. Our comfortable, but not gigantic, room was spotless and well equipped. It had air conditioning and a TV that even picked up BBC world news. Breakfasts were excellent. This was the only guesthouse we met, from the 10 we stayed at, where our suitcases were taken to and from our car. David and his staff were quite brilliant. We can highly recommend Roodenburg house.

We had a beautiful room with a wonderful bathroom & super comfortable bed. The staff was amazing, David was always ready to help with our sightseeing itinerary. The location is close to major roads, so it was easy to get around Cape town We will definetly recommend it to all our friends. Thanks to everyone.

After staying at the Roodenburg House I will have a very hard time going back to chain hotels with their generic service. Unfortunately my stay was quite short. Should I ever get to visit Cape Town again Roodenburg House will be my first choice. The service is simply outstanding!! Thanks for a great experience.

I was in Cape Town on business for about two weeks and stayed here the whole time. The rooms here carry nice characteristics and they are huge (compared to hotels in my city, Hong Kong). Staff here are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast here is pretty much the same everyday but I still enjoyed a lot. Great thanks to David! And I am sorry for this belated review.

We want to thank the whole staff - especially David for the hospitality they offered to us during our stay in Capetown. The hotel´s location is close to Capetown (surroundings of the city, 20 min to city centre) in a very safe area; rooms and service are excellent and the atmosphere is cosy and warm. We received many information for visiting Capetown and even at the end of our stay David helped us with recommodations for our next destinations. For us it was one of the best guesthouses during our vacation in Western Cape.
