We recently stayed at the Villa Rosa for 8 nights and were very satisfied. It is a cozy guesthouse with all the amenities needed for a relaxed stay. Our room was first floor, across from a dining room, and breakfast was more than enough. Lynn and Poppy helped us with anything we needed, including taxis and directions. It is conveniently... More

We have stayed at Villa Rosa for 2 nights with our 3-month old baby and the staff were very friendly - providing a comfy travel cot and lining. The room with kitchenette is divided in a night and a day parts and we particularly enjoyed the direct access to the balcony. Breakfast is great, with warm bread and croissants. The... More

Gorgeous quaint b&b that I called home for 7 days. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast complete with the best croissants I have ever tasted. Vet relaxed vibe...don't expect pomp and ceremony

A great spot to stay during our visit to Cape Town. Staff are very friendly and happy to help. We stayed in the flatlet which gave us catering options and space, it was great. Room was clean and the beds very comfortable!

The Villa Rosa has always been our 'go to' when in Cape Town. Authentic friendly service.Great rooms and a homely feel. The staff always make a point of going the extra mile. Over the years service has always remained good.

My daughter & i spent 5 happy very days at the Villa Rosa. Great location, warm, welcoming and helpful hosts; delicious breakfasts (although bacon would be a great addition to the eggs!). The room was comfortable and spacious. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much, it was lovely to have you to stay. We love our cold cuts instead of bacon as it's just a bit different from what you normally get in SA, but you can always ask for bacon next time, no problem! More

Once I've made the booking I have not heard from this establishment again, not what is your expected time etc. Upon arrival no one was there, so I stood in a drizzle rain on a busy main road in Sea Point, ringing the bell and later on phoning the number, but no answer. Eventually a guy drove past saying "I'll... More

We do sincerely apologise for you having to wait at the gate while our staff member quickly fetched his daughter from school. It shouldn't have happened - I was away at the time and we had no-one on hand for those 10 minutes to man the door - all we can say is a huge sorry. We're also sorry that... More

The villa Rosa in Seapoint is a beatiful and authentic Guesthouse, combined with a very friendly and familian hospitality. Good breakfast and we were offered a free later check out. Good place to explore Cape Town.
