Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Four Rosmead is a brilliant B&B -- the stuff that dreams are made of! The staff at this boutique bed and breakfast is bar none one of the finest I have ever encountered in a hospitality setting. Sonja, Nadine, and Jade went above and beyond to make our time in Cape Town a highlight of our honeymoon travels. Of course, they came through with flying colors by helping us organize our sightseeing in and around the city, making reservations at top-notch dining establishments, and by offering us the warmth and spirit that comes from an operation servicing a maximum of 8 rooms at a time. You receive the personal touch at Four Rosmead, a true intangible luxury that you cannot put a price tag on along with the accompanying views of Table Mountain!

We arrived on the 19th December on the first stop on our african honeymoon....our agent had been less than helpful from the time of booking to the time of departure so my husband had been in touch with Nadine at Four Rosmead for some information about restaurants etc - she was incredibly helpful. We booked every night's meal on her advice as the week before Christmas was, predictably, hugely busy. On our arrival they had left a little itinerary on our bed with all the reservations, tours etc that they had booked for us and included all directions to the restaurants. These little touches are something often overlooked by small hotels but not Four Rosmead. They run a boutique hotel that has the feel of a beautiful home but the efficiency and dedication of a large 5* hotel. Service at breakfast could be a bit slow but to be honest we live in a big city where you are chucked off tables after an hour so its just something to relax into - and really how bad can it be sitting on the patio enjoying a cup of fresh coffee and the paper whilst waiting for your eggs in the morning! Great location for getting to Table Mountain and Camps Bay, they will give you a reputable taxi firm which offers amazing rates and friendly drivers. All in all, it was perfect and we will be back!!

My sister and I stayed at the Four Rosmead for the duration of our four-day visit to Cape Town. The accommodations were lovely, and the gourmet breakfast each morning was such a treat. When we first arrived there was a powerful wind storm that knocked out the power, but the manager was well-equipped with lanterns and made us feel comfortable. I highly recommend Four Rosmead and would love to stay there again!

I cannot say enough good things about Four Rosmead. This boutique hotel by far surpassed my expectations. This is the perfect location for honeymooners...or anyone spending time in Cape Town.

- The rooms were immaculate, comfortable and beautifully decorated. They were also equipped with anything you may need, including a beach bag.

- The hotel provides a free breakfast each morning. I don't typically enjoy breakfast, but spending my morning at Four Rosmead is one of my fondest memories from our trip. Fresh fruit and meats, deliciously cooked eggs etc. Definitely a great start to the day.

- Location was excellent -- hidden in a quaint neighborhood -- we were centrally located and always felt very safe. While it was not advised to walk around at night, we always saw couples strolling around, which made us feel extremely safe.

- Most importantly...the staff. Nadine and Jade made us feel completely welcomed and at home. They were beyond helpful -- offering great recommendations for tours, dinners etc. They were always available to help with reservations or anything else we might need.

My husband and I hold Four Rosmead near and dear to our heart and would never stay anywhere else should we have the pleasure of visiting Cape Town again.

Everything was fine with our eight nights stay. The hotel is very well located close to Table mountain and the city. Also getting in and out from the highways was very easy. Excellent room with high ceiling. Tasty art works in the room as well as in the general areas. Obviously no bars, restaurants, large lobby or any other business hotel features - which was excellent. The hotel is small and very comfortable - good quality and easy going.

I spent 3 nights at Four Rosmead. Having never driven in South Africa before, I was a little bit worried about finding it from the airport but it was easy to find following the directions sent by email. The rooms (I had to move for the third night) were large and excellent. The breakfast was first rate, with a special option which changed daily. The staff were super friendly and helpful. I will stay again if I return to South Africa and highly recommend the place.

Very comfortable. We were well looked after.
It was great that the hotel did not mind us bringing food in, in fact they offered to lay up a table and provided plates, glasses etc. After two weeks of eating out, it was a nice break to sty in!

Also they kept our bags and gave us access to shower, changing fascilities, towels etc after we had checked out and had a last day on Clifton beach, before catching an evening flight home. So apprceciated and summed up the service and care shown by the hotel and its staff.

Thank you.
