We stayed at the Roodenberg House for 6 nights when we flew to Capetown to bring our son home from studying abroad at the University of Capetown. We couldn't have felt more welcomed nor have picked the a better place from where we launched our daily activities! Our hosts: Pat, Steven and Phillip were delightful and very helpful.

Beautiful rooms in a historic guest house. The staff was amazing and we felt very taken care of during our week long stay. I liked that it was very convenient to downtown but in a quieter neighborhood. Craft market across the street on Saturdays was great. Free Wifi and off street secure parking were a bonus. Very reasonably priced.

I always use Roodenburg House when on business trips to Cape Town, as it situated close to our Cape Town offices. I would however highly recommend this venue for both business and holiday trips. It is private, well maintained, clean and comfortable. Free wifi is available, as well as a small gym with basic necessities. Breakfast is served and prepared... More

I found this home to be exquisite in so many ways! Centrally located – to visit the Sea front, shopping malls and other places of interest!

Very comfortable. Excellent cooked breakfast. I have only 3 comments. 1. could the bar stock some non alcoholic drinks , Coca Cola, etc 2. Could the fallen leaves be cleared from the surface of the swimming pool as they get in my hair when swimming and 3, Room 2 very noisy from traffic on the road

Dear Nicholas thank you very much for the kind review and the helpful comments. We do have an "honesty" bar which has become a little problematic as quite often people forget to write up if they have had something to drink. We will implement a system where guests can order drinks for us to stock their fridge with, on arrival,... More
