“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the start of our honeymoon and were really delighted that we chose to stay at Cape Rose Cottage. Pam and Steve make you feel so welcome and were really helpful to us. Our room (lavender) was beautiful with fantastic views, comfort and very thoughtful touches that make you wish you could stay longer. Cape Rose Cottage truly deserves the excellent reviews it receives!

On behalf of my partner and my friend I can only confirm all the fantastic reviews about Cape Rose Cottage. We stayed there for three nights occupying the entire first floor and loved it from the first moment we arrived. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with an amazing view. The owners, Pam & Steve, are very friendly, helpful and always with a big smile on their faces!! We had a wonderful time and can highly recommend the place.

My partner and I are from Sydney, Australia, and stayed 4 nights at Cape Rose Cottage, in the Aquamarine Suite. The minute we set foot in the place I knew we had made the right decision - it was just so beautiful and so homely and comfortable all at the same time, with amazing views of the ocean - the place just has great energy! Both Pam and Steve are the loveliest people, so kind and caring and going out of their way to make sure everything about our stay was perfect, offering travel tips and advice but also just leaving us to ourselves, making us feel so at home and at peace. The actual location is amazing also, really close to the beach and not far either from Table Mountain and then the city beyond - it really is the perfect place to stay in Cape Town. Just writing about it is making me want to go back and sit in that lovely claw foot tub soaking myself in lovely smelling bath salts!! Thanks so much Pam and Steve, can't wait to come back and stay in Cape Rose Cottage again!

Room Tip: Look at the photos - unlike some websites, they tell the truth!

My husband and I spent 7 nights at Cape Rose Cottage. 4 nights in the Aquamarine Suite and 3 nights in the Cape Rose Suite. The views over the ocean from the Aquamarine suite are fantastic. Wherever you stay in this wonderful house Pam and Steve put a huge amount of effort into making your stay memorable. The welcome could not have been warmer. Their local knowledge and recommendations are so valuable. A beautiful place and truly lovely people.

Room Tip: If you prefer a garden setting the Cape Rose Suite is a good choice. However, whilst you can see the...

This was our second stay at the cape rose cottage and it was again wonderful. We had again the lavender suite and we loved it! Pam and Steve really put a lot of love in details. It's so charming. The location is very quiet with amazing ocean and mountain views. The room is spacious and it is really convenient to have a kitchenette. Great as they are, they stock the fridge with fresh milk, you'll find coffee, bread and juice and can just grab a mug and enjoy your coffee at your balcony. Awesome!

My mother(73) and I (50) recently spend three nights in Cape Town at Cape Rose Cottage. We had such a genuine, warm welcome! The room had the most fantastic view, and Pam and Steve made us feel at home from the first minute in a completely unobtrusive way. You can talk and you can enjoy silence, whichever you feel like. AND free access to wifi, even a laptop for guests provided.. This is not common in South Africa, but makes a huge difference: whether you need to check emails, weather forecast, next location or just want to send stunning pictures to your family and friends at home, all included and easy!
My mother does not speak English particularly well (being German) but she 'connected' immediately and relaxed into her South African experience!
When/if I go back..
Cape Rose Cottage is a definite stop on my travels!

We had a wonderful two weeks at Cape Rose Cottage and we both get a little smile on our faces when we think back to the good times we had, which is a sure sign of a successful holiday. Pam and Steve made us feel incredibly welcome and the many small touches around the Lavender Suite were well appreciated. They also gave invaluable suggestions like Dieu Donne in Franschoek and Bientangs Cave at Hermanus which were highlights for us and proof that local knowledge counts for a lot. We'll be sure to suggest Cape Rose Cottage to any friends or family heading that way. E&S
