What a wonderful place to stay. Stylish, and tasteful. Very good breakfasts. Excellent tailor made service and advice on places to eat, trips out etc. Lovely garden and pool. Walking distance to city centre. Such a tranquil atmosphere. Loved it.

There is not much more that anyone can add to the fantastic reviews that this guest house has already been given in the past, other than the hospitality and personal attention that both Nadine and Jade give to all their guests is absolutley amazing,
They both work so hard to make your stay comfortable, relaxed and try and allow you to make the most of your stay by being thoughrally informative of all the places of interest locally and within driving distance of Cape Town.

I celebrated Christmas with my family in Cape Town and a month or so prior to my arrival I recieved an e-mail from The Rosmead informing me that the Christmas period would be very busy and it would be advisable to pre book any Restaurants and visits to Robben Island as we could find ourselves being dissapointed otherwise.

Nadine sent me a list of a dozen or so restaurants with a description and comments of each one, I checked them all out and gave my list of 5 with the dates and times back to Nadine and she booked them all for me.
On arrival I was greeted with a bottle of Graham Beck champagne in my room with a wonderful message attached reminding me of my forthcoming 50th birthday!!
It is service and attention to detail like this that make this guest house stand out from the rest,
Take also into consideration the spacious rooms and comfortable beds, lavender sented towels, wonderful freshly cooked breakfasts, tranquil landscaped gardens and perfect location this must be the perfect choice for anyone staying in Cape Town!!

Thank you Jade and Nadine for a wonderful stay.

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
