Rosedene was our first stop during a 2 week vacation in South Africa and Zimbabwe. When we arrived we were greeted by Fatima whose energy and enthusiasm was unsurpassed! The rooms (we were traveling with 9 people) were spacious and beautifully decorated. The bed was VERY comfortable and our room had a spectacular view of Table Mountain. The breakfast was... More

The bird view from the room was superb. The Wi-Fi connection is a brilliant idea for vocational purposes. Staying on the foot of Table Mountain is a cherry on top. Morning breakfast service is a wonderful gesture; please include dinner and let us pay for it when we leave. Thank you for your hospitality.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was and coffee tasty and well presented. Room and linen clean and tidy. Only negative is the wardrobe in the room as it does not seem to be stable and the hair dryer could be updated.

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.
