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.

A perfect place for me to stay on a business trip to Cape Town - close to my clients and good restaurants in the area. Phillip is a real asset. I will definitely be back and highly recommend Roodenburg House!

The price range was a little high for my budget, but as the Argus was on and I booked late, we were happy to find Roodenburg House. It is a great place to stay - a special mention of Phillip. A bit hairy getting on to Campground Road during peak traffic!

We stayed in the Mountain Suite room 5 on the garden side of the guest house and it could not have been nicer or more comfortable. We were well looked after by Philip and the team and we enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in the garden by the pool after our overnight flight to Cape Town.

A delightful guesthouse, where the standards are well above a four star hotel. The staff were very helpful and dealt quickly and efficiently with all requests.

Excellent service and facilities. Nearby location for business at UCT. Rooms are comfortable and clean.Although close to the centre of Rondebosch, you don't get disturbed by traffic noise. Nice environment for jogging as well.
