“Great boutique hotel”
Reviewed 20 May 2009

We spent 5 days in Cape Town at the beginning of our holiday. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms well appointed, most with a private terrace. The breakfasts are beautifully prepared and abundant. Located in the suburbs o Table Mountain, a taxi is required for getting down to the waterfront and all other activities. We walked down to several nearby restaurants for dinner but safety requires that you cab back, even for 3 short blocks.
One of the highlights of our Cape Town adventure was retaining Selwyn Davidowitz as a guide of I Love Cape Town (www.ILoveCapeTown.com) for a day tour in a township near Stellenbosch. Although I was a little nervous about this, all four of us believe that, besides the lions, this was the highlight of our trip. Stretch yourself and go. It is safe, highly informative, emotional and you will leave with a better understanding of those that live in a township and the issues being faced on a daily basis.
Cape Town is a beautiful and wonderful city. Although we thougt that 5 days would be too long, we could have easily spent another day here because the shopping is the best in all of South Africa or Botswana.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in thanks to the staff - amazing who couldn't have made our stay in Cape Town more enjoyable. Would highly recommend.

We stayed at 4 Rosmead for 4 nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. Service could not be faulted. We had champagne chilling on arrival with chocolates, fruit and bath oils as gifts. Staff there could not be more helpful in recommending restaurants, suggesting sight seeing spots and booking taxis. Breakfast was fantastic with great choice and presentation. Our room was very stylish with huge walk in power shower and very pleasant toiletries and the most comfortable bed. We were close to all amentities, shops and restaurants. All in all a great experience and wonderful start to our honeymoon. Thankyou!

Spent several days in Cape Town at the start of an all-too-brief honeymoon trip to SA. A fantastic way to start the holiday it was too.
The room was large, clean and very comfortable. Even had a view of the mountains from the balcony.
Service from all the staff was amongst the best I have ever experienced. And the attention detail extraordinary - chocolates or treats in the room on our return with candles and music set playing!
Couldn't have been more helpful with organising trips and recommending places to go and things to do.
We also had the 'takeaway experience', which was both unexpected and extremely useful after a long and uncomfortable flight when we didn't feel like going out.
Cape Town itself is amazing and we could have stayed much longer.

We can only echo what others have said about Four Rosmead, which was a joy from beginning to end. Ideally located at the foot of Table Mountain, this small hotel was the ideal base from which to explore Cape Town. With sumptuously appointed rooms and some lovely finishing touches we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome or comfortable.

Nadine and Vicky did a brilliant job in organising us to ensure we made the most of our stay - advising on restaurants (95 Keerom comes highly recommended) and excursions and doing all of the arrangements and booking.

Four Rosmead gave us a fantastic start to our honeymoon and a lovely introduction to Cape Town. It comes with the highest possible recommendation.

Cannot speak highly enough of this understated but elegant guest house nestling in the foothills of mountains away from the jumble of the city centre.Spare,chic accomodation set off with a pretty little pool embedded in neat gardens.After a long flight the welcome was incredibly helpful.Every day Vikki or Nadine the two managers made guests feel at home-booking taxis or restaurants or just advising us on what was the best way to get the most fruitful experience from a few days in Capetown.Everything was dealt with in a calm,efficient and relaxed manner.It was a terrific start to our trip .We were so pleased that we were not in a big and impersonal hotel in the centre. j and j london

My friend and I spent 4 nights at the Four Rosmead in September 2008 as part of a competition win - so that was a good start !

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful - nothing was too much bother for them - they are a credit to the Four Rosmead.

Our room was beautiful and the breakfasts were tasty and plentiful. The staff kindly gave us advice on restaurants, where to visit and organised our wine tour.

The guesthouse is within easy walking distance (during the day - would not recommend walking at night) from the centre of Cape Town and has a wonderful view of Table Mountain.

Couldn't recommend the Four Rosmead more !!
