Africa Travel Resource booked us at Four Rosmead Guesthouse and we are so happy they did! The house is located in a beautiful part of Cape Town (the Gardens). Just 2 miles from Table Mountain (you can see it in the backdrop), a couple blocks from Kloof Street, and 4 miles from the VA Waterfront, it is perfectly situated. And... More

This is our 3rd stay at Four Rosmead, and it is still an excellent place to stay! Only one comment, more variety at breakfast would be appreciated. Thanks to the staff and Nadine in particular! We will be back!!!

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon. We walked into our room and promptly found a bottle of wine and a personal note congratulating us. The room was beautiful - high ceilings and a beautiful view. The staff was helpful and accommodating of our food allergies. We were provided with a comprehensive collection of local trivia explaining the surrounding... More

4 nights in Cape Town allowed us to spend time at this outstanding boutique hotel - just 8 rooms, so our group of 5 consumed 3 of the rooms and we felt like it was 'home'. Jade & Sonia took great care of us both as hostess/managers of the property, and in arranging our 3 days of site-seeing around the... More

Jade and the staff helped us with every part of our 4 day stay in Cape Town. Great Breakfast, plush room. Booked through Eyes on Africa and Wilderness Safaris. Great place to unwind after 9 days of the bush. Jim & Jeannie, Overland Park, Kansas

We started out our South African honeymoon in Cape Town. We arrived around noon and were prepared for us. Sonja and Jade were very attentive and helped plan our "free" days. Breakfast was delicious and we liked how the menu changed daily. This place is not in the center of the city, which we thought we would miss, but it... More

Very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. The location seemed a little off the beaten path but it worked out OK given that we weren't really familiar with the city and didn't know where we should be staying anyway. Only two minor issues - carpet seemed a little dingy in one of our rooms and the person who checked us in was... More

We stayed at Four Rosmead for 4 nights following our safari vacation. This hotel is just wonderful - so quite, peaceful and just a quick cab right to either the Waterfront or Camp's Bay ($8-10 each way). The staff is amazing - they were so helpful checking in with us each morning to see how our evenings went and to... More

What a really wonderful guest house. We have just returned from our second lovely stay in the last 6 weeks at Four Rosmead. We had stayed here previously about 5 years ago and it is still just perfect! Wonderful rooms, beautifully decorated, impeccable and friendly service and ideal location. Very nice common areas too - lovely outside areas for the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Four Rosmead has all the characteristics of a boutique style hotel; its location, style, authenticity and our personal service all contribute to re-defining the Cape Town travel experience. Built in 1903, Four Rosmead is a classified monument that has been sensitively and stylishly re-modeled. The result is a Cape contemporary classic with a rich history. Interiors are chic with a subtle, yet distinctive African spirit enhanced by original South African artwork. Accommodation consists of eight bespoke en-suite bedrooms. Some rooms have a fireplace, private garden, balcony or courtyard. ... more   less
