My boyfriend and I just finished a 4/night stay here. Our room was absolutely lovely (with great mountain views), but I'd say the real reason to stay here is the phenomenal advice that Rob & Neil can give about activities in Cape Town and the surrounding area. They had endless ideas for what to do, even on two days where... More

We stayed with Neil and Rob in 2013 after backpacking down through Zimbabwe and Botswana, needless to say it was the perfect dose of comfort and luxury after 4 weeks on the road. Rob, Neil and their staff were incredibly warm and welcoming and made some excellent recommendations for places to eat and drink in the local area. We had... More

We visited CT for a week following the Comrades Run. This place is breathtakingly gorgeous. Neil and Rob have created a work of art with this place, as evidenced by the photo montage in the hallway. The rooms are spacious and smartly appointed, the walkway from the front gate is peaceful and inviting, and there are places to park your... More

I stayed at the Villa Costa Rose for three nights in mid-May. I had been in Cape Town for a week for work (staying at UCT's campus) and then transitioned to vacation at Villa Costa Rose. And vacation it was. Neil and Rob were both great -- from initially booking a room to arriving and dropping off luggage before my... More

We stayed at Villa Costa Rose for a week in May 2014. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Each room has it's own individual character and the breakfast is delicious. Rob, the owner, made wonderful and informed restaurant suggestions. Great location and value for your money.

We stayed for a few days in Cape Town after a wine tour and Villa Costa Rosa was great overall. Wonderful breakfast, and we had a fantastic room with a nice private balcony.

Dear Guests, Thankyou for your positive review.

Great location, nice rooms, good breakfast with lots of choice, excellent service and owner most helpful and informative ensuring you get the most out of your stay in Cape Town.
