“Four Rosmead is a GEM!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

Africa Travel Resource booked us at Four Rosmead Guesthouse and we are so happy they did! The house is located in a beautiful part of Cape Town (the Gardens). Just 2 miles from Table Mountain (you can see it in the backdrop), a couple blocks from Kloof Street, and 4 miles from the VA Waterfront, it is perfectly situated. And the staff goes out of their way to not only make you feel welcome, but they take a special interest in your planned activities. They reconfirmed our planned trips with the tour operators, arranged taxis for us, gave us tips about getting around and staying safe. Special thanks to Nadine, Sonja and John, the Managers. They had breakfast ready for us at 5:00am before our shark dive...needless to say, the house and our room were just beautiful, warm and clean. I can't say enough except that we will definitely return to Four Rosmead on our next trip to Cape Town. We even sent a couple of Greek brothers whom we met on safari to Four Rosmead, as they were heading to Cape Town after we had visited. I absolutely recommend Four Rosmead, you will not be sorry.

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are excellent. Ours was very quiet and we slept like babies.

This is our 3rd stay at Four Rosmead, and it is still an excellent place to stay! Only one comment, more variety at breakfast would be appreciated. Thanks to the staff and Nadine in particular! We will be back!!!

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon. We walked into our room and promptly found a bottle of wine and a personal note congratulating us. The room was beautiful - high ceilings and a beautiful view. The staff was helpful and accommodating of our food allergies. We were provided with a comprehensive collection of local trivia explaining the surrounding area. We were so pleased with our stay at Four Rosmead and were quite sad to leave! We highly recommend this hotel for those traveling to the area.

4 nights in Cape Town allowed us to spend time at this outstanding boutique hotel - just 8 rooms, so our group of 5 consumed 3 of the rooms and we felt like it was 'home'.
Jade & Sonia took great care of us both as hostess/managers of the property, and in arranging our 3 days of site-seeing around the region. Helped us select great restaurants, and venture to wine country and the cape. Alas, the weather kept us from really seeing the top of nearby Table mountain.
Rooms here were exceptionally spacious, baths included tub & shower (at least ours did), and the daily full breakfast was delightful.
Highly recommend to any couple or group looking for a restful, quiet neighborhood hotel not far from Kloof Street and easy access to downtown as well as Table Mountain

Jade and the staff helped us with every part of our 4 day stay in Cape Town. Great Breakfast, plush room. Booked through Eyes on Africa and Wilderness Safaris. Great place to unwind after 9 days of the bush. Jim & Jeannie, Overland Park, Kansas

We started out our South African honeymoon in Cape Town. We arrived around noon and were prepared for us. Sonja and Jade were very attentive and helped plan our "free" days. Breakfast was delicious and we liked how the menu changed daily. This place is not in the center of the city, which we thought we would miss, but it is located in one of the safest areas; so it was well worth the $8 cab ride to the waterfront.

This place is personal, without being overbearing, private and clean. Great place!
