Reviewed 14 September 2012

Four Rosmead was a wonderful introduction to the graciousness, hospitality, and luxury possible for visiting South Africa. The location, in the Garden District, while not in the heart of the city, was convenient enough to visit everywhere we wanted to go with a short drive, or a short cab ride at night.

We stayed four nights in a luxury room on the second floor with a lovely outdoor sitting area. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow for using the sitting area, but I did make use of the great soaking tub.

The room itself was comfortable with everything that you could need including fluffy robes. But the real draw of Four Rosmead was the staff's ability to make you feel at home. We had full use of the beautiful sitting room, and the when the weather permitted, the outdoor sitting area. We had drinks every night in the parlor. One chilly night the staff lit the fireplace just for us. The grounds were beautiful, and the bountiful breakfasts elegant and delicious.

I would not hesitate to return to Four Rosmead- in fact- thinking about it makes me smile.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor, preferably with a tub.

We arrived at Four Rosmead on the first of three stops around South Africa. From check in to departure we could not find any fault with the accomodation, staff or food!
The staff were happy to help us with planning trips, booking tickets and pointing us in the right direction the few times we went out in the hire car.
It was all the added extras that made them stand out - the turndown service, our beautiful congratulations card and bottle of champagne and taking time out to speak to us whenever they saw us.
Thank you to all the staff and we hope to return to explore Cape Town a little more.

Room Tip: We were upstairs at the back of the hotel - we had no bath but a lovely big shower room which was am...

We arrived at this wonderful oasis in Capetown after travelling some 22 hours from NYC. (The previous comments about the uselessness of the GPS from the airport apply to us as well). After unpacking and showering (great bathrooms) we met with the concierge about our plans for the next few days. She checked the weather reports and made reservations at all the sights we wanted to see in Cape Town. The dinner recommendations each evening were spot on. The room(superior) was large and extremely comfortable. The grounds were gorgeous, even in the winter. Gated parking was on premises. The breakfasts were made to order and included specials each day. After a day of sightseeing we gathered in the main room, in front of a roaring fire for drinks before dinner. All in all, it was a great way to start our South African adventure, and was one of the highlights of the trip.

We spent three nights in August, one of them in the deluxe room – a true suite. The place is simply fantastic. The interior design is great, perfectly tidy, the location is convenient and the staff is extremely helpful. Very reach and tasty breakfast, a pc available for Internet access, very nice garden with pool (although in winter we could not enjoy it!), internal parking. We just loved the place and strongly recommend it.

We stayed for 4 nights in this lovely little guest house. The room was spacious with some lovely touches and the breakfast was vast and delicious! The only slight downside was that we were in the room right by the main front door and were woken early on a few mornings by other people coming and going. The staff were really helpful and assisted us with taxis and planning our days etc.

We had a bit of a struggle finding this B&B as the GPS we hired with the rental car got us very lost (tip: preload the directions from the airport to the hotel on your iphone before you get there as it works even without data activated).
The B&B is very nice, there was room to park our car and the carpark and B&B is surrounded by security fencing so we didn't have to worry about our car getting broken into. The location is in a quiet suburban street but it's not too far to drive to the waterfront or other areas in town. At night we just took a taxi which the reception staff kindly organised for us.
The breakfast was fantastic - we loved the homemade jams and scones and they can also make you a hot breakfast if you like. Highly recommended as a cheaper alternative to the big 5 star hotels in town.

Last time our stay at "Four Rosmead" was the perfect start to our holiday and this time it was the perfect end! We stayed here two years ago and, if possible,enjoyed our stay here even more this year.Again I would emphasise the excellent hospitality,superb breakfasts and wonderfully clean and comfortable rooms, I really can't speak highly enough of the place and only hope that we will be lucky enough to visit again one day.
