My favourite place to stay in Cape Town - all the conveniences of a hotel with the scale of a guest house. 24-hour concierge makes such a difference and the location is AMAZING. Fatima and Sue are delightful hosts.

This was the first place we arrived at in South Africa, and set the standards for the rest of our journey. Fatimah greeted us upon arrival as the Manager, and she made our stay. Her enthusiasm was infectious and she went out of her way to create a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere for our two small girls. Having the staff... More

Very central and comfortable accommodation.walking distance to good restaurants. Were unfortunately busy with renovations which was a little disturbing, and would have appreciated it if we were advised when making booking. Very friendly staff and good breakfast.Would return.

We had a great time over all. The friendly staff should be commended on their great service. They really give Rosedene a great atmosphere and we will definitely come again. The breakfast is also a real treat! However, our room was right next to the security gates, which made a lot of noise at night. Furthermore, some other guests were... More

We arrived with full expectations, the security gates reminds you of a James Bond movie, double gates and mission for access to the main building. We found our room with fresh linen, and a dysfunction coffee tray, kettle had to be boiled only on the other side of the room, and standing flat on the carpet. We requested Fatima to... More

Nestled in the foot of the table mountain, this quaint guest house is not only extremely comfortable but also well run. The staff are efficient and go to great lengths to please the guests. This is our 5th visit to Rosedene and its great to see Rina, Fatima and Roshaan keep on improving and expanding the guest house.

I stayed at Rosedene for two nights mid April. The property is charming and rustic with an old world feel to it. The staff are very friendly and helpful and made the experience worthwhile. The room I chose was on the third floor and there aren't any elevators, so I got a bit of a workout carrying my suitcase, but... More

Really nice and friendly welcome. The room - a picture! The facilities - complete! The shower - worked straight away! My table was reserved for breakfast! The food -... More
