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

This outstanding property is enhanced by the friendly, polite and helpful staff. We stayed for four nights and will return if ever back in Cape Town. Our plane arrived very early and our room was not yet vacated, but we were offered full breakfast, storage of our luggage and a bathroom to shower in and a change room. Taxis and... More

What a stunning boutique B&B. Service superb, rooms large and modern. Spotless. Breakfast amazing. Would not stop anywhere else in Cape Town now that we've discovered this place, in fact we are planning on returning this year.

My husband and I recently (25/04/14) stayed at Four Rosmead for 3 nights as part of a 10 night trip to SA. We were originally going to stay at one of the 5 star hotels on the V&A Waterfront, but then spotted this guest house, asked a couple of travel agents about it and read some earlier Trip Advisor reviews...

Loved this boutique B&B so much! Everything was perfect. Great food (breakfast was sublime. An amazing spread each morning with specials too. The smoked salmon and cream cheese omelette was fantastic!). The manager, Jade, was super organised and very helpful. My friend and I were rather disorganised and would have had a few disasters it it wasn't for her calling... More

Fantastic location, clean, tidy and very helpful staff. We would certainly stay again when in Cape Town. Breakfast was lovely although perhaps a little more choice would turn this from an excellent hotel into and outstanding one.

A fantastic boutique hotel in a beautiful colonial setting. The decor of the hotel is modern & extremely well designed. Breakfast is to die for & you can take this each morning on the balcony overlooking the garden & the pool. The attention to detail & service is second to none. Rooms are fab with loads of space & large... 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
