Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 January 2010

We spent New Year's 2009 in Capetown, and stayed at Four Rosmead. Even before we arrived, the excellent service began - in terms of suggesting restaurants & activities.

This is a lovely little property with an execellent team. The breakfasts on the terrace are fantastic. I didnt have a chance to try the massage, but would have liked to.

On some days, instead of venturing out, we simply stayed at Four Rosmead and enjoyed the peace and tranquility.

I highly recommend Four Rosmead.

This was part of our 4 stop B&B tour of South Africa. All of the lodgning was sourced from Tripadvisor, and we were very happy with the results.

My friend and I had a most enjoyable stay at the Four Rosmead. This guesthouse should have a 5* rating. The staff Nadine, Jade and Lin really went out of their way to make us feel welcome, the room was very clean and spacious (huge bathroom) and lovely balcony overlooking table mountain. Excellent breakfasts with great choice and the restaurants recommended by the staff were all superb too. Would not hesitate to recommend this guesthouse to anyone else travelling to Cape town.

This boutique hotel was just perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and attention to detail was just perfect. Set in a lovely area of Cape Town, this small, friendly hotel was the perfect base for the holiday. The staff were warm, friendly and very informative. The accommodation was lovely and the breakfasts just perfect. I would recommend this to couples.

It sometimes seems superfluous to add another glowing review to a hotel that so clearly excels, but the lovely people at Four Rosmead were so very helpful that I have to add my note of thanks.
I think that South Africans are the most hospitable people in the world and so justly proud of their country. The Four Rosmead team was not only welcoming and kind, but made the extra effort to assure that guests were sorted out with plans for their day's activities. Instead of waiting to be asked to arrange a car or a meal, they spent time each day determining how to assist guests in having a flawless visit. When I suddenly needed to arrange for shipping a heavy package, they graciously handled it and the goods arrived safely some weeks later.
The location is great and the views from the guest rooms are stunning - Lion's Head, Table Mountain. Breakfasts are super; interior design and gardens are lovely and relaxing.
Choose Four Rosmead next time you visit Cape Town!

I cant really think of anything negative to say about this hotel.
Location - It seemed to be in a perfect place at the foot of the slopes up to Table Mountain, in a quiet suburb of Cape Town so nice and central for getting about (use a taxi)
Room/Hotel - Clean, Modern, Fresh, Air Conditioned, Comfy - what else do you want?
Staff - Nothing is too much trouble. They will help you plan your days and nights to make the most out of your time in Cape Town.

Thanks

When we arrived in Cape Town, exhausted after a long flight it was lovely to be reassured that we were in capable hands! Nadine and the rest of the staff at Four Rosmead were so friendly and couldn’t do enough to help us. Our room was very clean and stylish and had wonderful views of Lions Head. They helped us organise day trips, book restaurants and taxis and generally made our stay in Cape Town very memorable. I will never forget Four Rosmead as it was where we got engaged and the kind words from the staff made it even more special.

We stayed here for five nights at the start of our trip in Sept 2009.
As a base for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding area it was first class. The accomodation was excellent as was the breakfasts. The staff were very helpful and informative.
