We had a wonderful stay at the Four Rosmead for 5 nights at the beginning of March. This was our first trip to Cape Town and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly – nothing was too much trouble. A special mention to Sonja and Jade who kindly answered some questions I had on email prior to our arrival. With... More

We stayed at Four Rosmead for 3 nights, immediately after landing in Cape Town. It's a beautiful property, nicely decorated with lots of nice, little touches e.g. a carafe of sherry to help yourself from if you fancy a drink when you get in! The staff were lovely, all very friendly and only too happy to help with recommendations of... More

I came to Four Rosmead after a 10-day safari from Namibia where I was looking forward to a comfortable bed and a few days of relaxation. I was not disappointed as the Four Rosmead met all of my requirements. Although located in a quiet residential neighborhood, its only a few blocks away from Kloof Street, a busy high street, packed... More

Wife and I just came back from Cape Town. First stop on the tour was a 3 night stay at Four Rosmead. We had never booked a guesthouse but knew we were not B&B folks. I took a chance based on reviews and pictures. Loved it. It was big enough not to be on top of folks. It was private... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. When we saw the view from our rooms we were just blown away, waking up every morning to Lions head and city skyline. Breakfast is just amazing, so is the people and service. This is more like a super duper 5 star exclusive guest house and not like a hotel. Love the location and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed for 3 nights and the staff would ask what our plans were everyday and how they could help. The room was spacious and well decorated. The common area was very relaxing and beautiful. The breakfast was amazing and very fresh. My husband loved the granola! Some restaurants were close by. The neighbourhood was... More

Four Rosmead was a most excellent upmarket boutique B&B which we stayed in for 5 nights. The service, breakfasts, location and amenities were excellent. It is certainly a place we would ;like to visit again and we will be recommending it to our friends as a superb place to stay.

We stayed at Four Rosmead for 2 nights, it is a beautiful guest house, extremely stylish, just like staying in a 5 star hotel but so much more personal and friendly. Our room was lovely, with a huge bed, great bathroom with amazing bath surrounded by candles! Breakfast was delicious I think the best we had during our whole 2... More

A good location, excellent rooms, very nice breakfasts and very helpful and attentive staff - what more do you want ? From initial suggestions as to how we should spend our time in Cape Town to getting around and where we might like to eat, we could not have asked for more.

We booked our stay at Four Rosmead based on the Trip Advisor reviews and didn't pay much attention to location. We ended up being very pleased with the location. It's in the quiet Gardens area of Cape Town, close to Table Mountain, and about a mile walk to the Waterfront. It was a great hub for our stay in Cape... More
