Great place! Rooms very spacious even with a bed for a toddler. For supper, we recommend you go to Al Forno at the beachfront - all their dishes are great and the view is awesome :-) Hope that the new owners will keep the great standard. Will check that out next time we are in the Cape.

This was our first trip to Cape Town, and we love it. Gordon's Bay is a beautiful suburb, and our stay at Wind Rose (about 1 km off the N2 highway, and about 3 km from Gordon's Bay) really made our holiday. Set in large, secure grounds, with swimming pool, the staff were absolutely great. Our room was spacious with... More

We had our ceremony in the lovely gardens at Wind rose and the reception in their conference centre on the 13th February 2016. It was a beautiful location and the weather turned out just prefect for our special day.

Wind rose was a very nice place, we loved it and enjoyed. The people are so friendly there, made you feel right at home. When we go to cape town, that the number one place for us. The rooms are very beautiful and view, WOW. I love it there, the garden is beautiful.

Lovely location and ambience. Country setting just far enough from the hustle and bustle of peak season in Gordon's Bay. Rooms are airy, comfortable and privacy guaranteed. Guests are treated as if they are the only ones on the property. Attention to detail, from the thirsty towels to the complimentary, upmarket products for use by the guests. Friendly owners and...

My two young sons and I spent 3 nights at Wind-Rose this week, and as a former Guesthouse Manager of a Portfolio Collection Guesthouse in Knysna, I couldn't find anything to criticise! What a very special stay - from the location, our room, the establishment itself, management and staff to the wonderful pool and fire pits (although we never got... More

When you need a relaxing atmosphere, near the ocean but away from the holiday hustle - no place can beat the Wind-Rose Guesthouse. From our balcony we could look over the fantastic garden and take in the stunning views of the bay. The bay is close enough to make you appreciate being at the ocean, but not so close that... More

Great guesthouse. It has all that is expected from a 4-star establishment. Rooms are large and comfortable with a modern conference room. Very laid back and easy going atmosphere out of town. Gracious hosts and superb breakfasts. Nice garden and pool as well to relax in. Good value for money.

From the moment we booked a room in the Wind- Rose guesthouse we experienced the hospitality from Dennis and Estelle as Hospitality with a capital H.
