Staff and owners were extremely accommodating and very friendly! Always ready to help and made my mother feel welcome and comfortable at all times. The rooms are spacious and clean and breakfast was a real treat!

This is a no miss for any stay in Cape Town. Phillip, Steven and Pat made our stay extra special. Relaxing beside the pool at the end of the day and great breakfast fare made this the highlight of our stay in Cape Town.

We loved the beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable home-away-from-home. The staff - Pat, Phillip and Steven made us feel very welcome and were hospitable and obliging to our needs in every way.

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Roodenburg Guest House while visiting my daughter during her CIEE semester. Philip greeted us upon our arrival. He was friendly and helpful taking care of every detail. Our room, the Paisley Suite overlooked a beautiful mountain site and the breakfasts were delicious! It was just a short walk tomy Jenna's apartment!

We did the Two Oceans marathon and found this guest house to be the closest to start. On arrival we were well received, Phillip was great host and looked after our needs. He even got up in the early hours of the race morning to accomodate breakfast for the run. The rooms were clean and VERY comfortable. Highly recommended and... More

I have stayed at a number of venues in Cape Town over the many years of doing business. In terms of Roodenberg, there are so many perspectives to consider - from the web experience when booking, to the warm welcome when arriving, to the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the rooms, presentation of the rooms and the facilities in...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Even If it was in the family room. :) it was well located for my purposes. Very clean. Service from staff was great. Steven and Phillip are excellent hosts. I don't have any other tips or suggestions.

Stayed there for a night in a business trip. Wow, what a lovely place. All guests seemed like foreigners. I was the only local. Small(ish) guest house, great decor and very comfy lush rooms. Beautiful setting and the breakfast was outstanding. Wish I could have stayed on for a bit of R&R, would've been the perfect venue!!

Great value, excellent service, very comfortable large room, and a beautiful pool & bar area with mountain views. Very good internet connection allowed me to work remotely. Convenient location with several restaurants within a hundred metres, with central Claremont & Newlands shopping 5 minutes by car. Highly recommended.
