Lucky enough to stay in Lavender Suite during Easter holidays. This lovely place is like a fairy tale, every detail in the room shows the loving and caring heart of the owners. They match the purple tone very well with delicate decorations and furnishings found by them, something obviously not from massive production (pls see my photos). From the moment... More

Thank you for a fantastic stay - everything was perfect - loved the idea of continental breakfast in the room - specifically as a single person on a working trip - did not have to rush through to breakfast room and could have breakfast in my room at my own leisure. Great idea!!! All round fantastic and will definitely be... More

We stayed at the cottage lavender suite for four nights as part of our honeymoon but our time there was absolutely worthwhile. The suite was simply excellent, with a good view and it was just as it appeared on the website. Pam and Steve were very warm and helpful and we loved the idea of making our own schedule as... More

We spent 2 nights in the lovely Aquamarine suite. For us Camps Bay is the place to be in Cape Town and when you see the stunning view from the balcony you will understand why Cape Rose Cottage is the place to stay! The rooms are well appointed with great attention to detail and special touches such as chocolates on... More

We spend 3 nights at Cape Rose Cottage. It is a wonderful place outside Capetown but everything (city, cable car table mountain) is reachable within 15 min. by car or bus. The sea view from the balcony is great. We enjoyed the sunset on the balcony with a glass of wine. We felt very comfortable and welcome at Pam and... More

We found Cape Rose Cottage in Camps Bay Area through Trip Advisor. It is a small and charming (self catering) villa managed by Pam and Steve, a gracious and wonderful couple. The location is as good as it gets …. the Villa is located in the quiet residential part of the Camps Bay on a hill, with a majestic view... More

Immediately you can feel the passion Pam & Steve have for this place through their attention to detail & their warmth. Count on them to give great tips. I stayed in the lavender room which had lovely panaramic ocean view. Fantastic for catching the sunset, which casts a beautiful glow on the room & the mountains. There were countless details... More

Camps Bay is a great location and Cape Rose Cottage sits high above it, with great views of the ocean. It is secure, well organised and comfortable. However, surely it should be listed as a Self Catering establishment rather than a B&B. If it is a B&B, then the breakfast falls far short of what ought to be expected from... More
