It was very close to the University of Cape Town where I needed to be for business.The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodated me with an earlier breakfast than normal.

Roodenburg Guest House is really fantastic. For an old (1882) house it has been beautifully maintained and in fact quite charming. The rooms and amenities are very modern. My best is the sunroom alongside the pool area, which is really stunning, allowing you the benefit of being 'outside' in the sun, but without the wind! Roodenburg will definitely be one... More

We used the venue to deliver training and I was really impressed by them. The staff were all super friendly and helpful and made both myself and my students feel very welcome. I would highly recommend them as a venue.

I stayed over for one night and selected Roodenburg House based on other reviews and location close to the venue where I had to attend a seminar. The room was warm and clean, but..... The shower drain was blocked which limited my shower experience to approximately 2 minutes before the basin would overflow. The towels were small and thin -... More

As management and staff we sincerely regret the guest’s experience. We always appreciate feed- back and take complaints very seriously. We have spoken to him and apologised for the inconveniences he had. We also would like to mention that the room he stayed is not under a zinc roof but under tiles. The room also has double glazing windows, a... More

Very good fit for purpose business lodging near university. Bar had no ice late at night. Very helpful reception and staff. Complimentary first drink a good idea. Room that I had was small despite other rooms being available.
