“Personalized attention”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

Roodenburg House is a delightful heritage home and we were warmly welcomed by staff who went out of their way to make our stay over the festive season, special. We really enjoyed our stay as a family of 8 but would recommend Roodenburg House's central location as being more suited to your business traveler.

The decoration is very nice and the place is quiet in a very nice environment (in particular you will enjoy a nice view of the table mountain)
Service is excellent and the staff is very kind.
Last but not least, breakfast is very good.
You can go !

We have traveled to Cape Town several times over the last few years and have stayed in a couple different B&B's. The Roodenburg House was by far the best experience! It's so conveniently located and has great amenities, but the personal attention given by David and his staff was extraordinary! One night we grabbed some carry-out from a nearby Thai restaurant and brought it back to the Roodenburg House. The staff brought out plates and silverware for us at a time when they were off-duty. Just one of the many ways they made us feel welcome during our stay. I would highly recommend the Roodenburg House to anyone who is traveling to Cape Town for business or pleasure.

I travel to South Africa every couple of months for work, and the last few times (3-4 times at least), I have stayed at the Roodenburg House. This is a lovely guesthouse that combines the comfort of a well-run hotel with the charm of a relaxing stay with good friends.
The location is great, and the staff are warm and helpful. I have enjoyed more than a few cups of coffee with David (the manager), who is never too busy for a friendly chat or for ensuring my needs are met. The breakfast is very good as well!
I must also mention the first time I stayed at the Guesthouse in September-October 2011 (for a month), I developed a throat infection that left me with high fever. David at the time accompanied me to the doctor and ensured that my recovery was easily managed. This is not something that 'hotels' are known for. And for me, the Roodenburg House is definitely more than just a hotel! Look forward to returning again in the near future...

Thanks to Manager David and his team for the great stay at Roodenburg House.
Rooms are very nice and clean, the service is excellent. Especially the dinner which you can order on demand had been perfectly cooked by Eileen.
For sure I will stay at Roodenburg House again on the occasion of my next business trip in ZA.

We spent three days here. It's very convenient to Cape Town. The rooms are elegant and comfortable; the management is very accommodating. The breakfasts are excellent - I gained weight. We were there in the late fall, so didn't take advantage of the enclosed patio off our room. The only negative is that there are several Camp Ground Roads in Rondebosch, and the GPS steered us in the wrong direction the first time.

I recently had the good fortune to stay in the most delightful guest house in Cape Town. The rooms were luxurious, very clean and extremely comfortable. They cater to your every need and add their personal touch to make you feel at home. The staff are so friendly and are always available to help,no matter what your request.The manager, David goes out of his way to arrange tours, massages,shopping for special items and anything else you may require.
I would not hesitate to recommend Roodenburg House and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Facing the mountain or having a small garden were some of my favorite rooms. Every room is different...
