“Perfect”
Reviewed November 8, 2009

I cant really think of anything negative to say about this hotel.
Location - It seemed to be in a perfect place at the foot of the slopes up to Table Mountain, in a quiet suburb of Cape Town so nice and central for getting about (use a taxi)
Room/Hotel - Clean, Modern, Fresh, Air Conditioned, Comfy - what else do you want?
Staff - Nothing is too much trouble. They will help you plan your days and nights to make the most out of your time in Cape Town.

Thanks

When we arrived in Cape Town, exhausted after a long flight it was lovely to be reassured that we were in capable hands! Nadine and the rest of the staff at Four Rosmead were so friendly and couldn’t do enough to help us. Our room was very clean and stylish and had wonderful views of Lions Head. They helped us organise day trips, book restaurants and taxis and generally made our stay in Cape Town very memorable. I will never forget Four Rosmead as it was where we got engaged and the kind words from the staff made it even more special.

We stayed here for five nights at the start of our trip in Sept 2009.
As a base for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding area it was first class. The accomodation was excellent as was the breakfasts. The staff were very helpful and informative.

We stayed at the Rosmead on the last leg of our trip to South Africa. This stylish boutique hotel is perfectly located with great views over Cape Town. The rooms were beautifully decorated and spacious. We booked with Audley Travel and their description of the service and location was spot on.

Nadine and Jade the service managers were welcoming and friendly and the service they provided was outstanding. We felt relaxed and at home. Their advice for restaurants and tours was perfect. We were even directed to an amazing diamond jeweller that enabled us to purchase two beautiful rings at an extraordinary price (Prins and Prins).

Breakfast was lovely served by efficient and friendly staff. Although no restaurant we were able to order in and eat in the dining room.

The little touches in our room were personal and welcomed.

After checking out and with time to spare we had a nice room to shower and get changed.

Would thoroughly recommend Four Rosmead and would definitely stay there if returning to Cape Town.

We stayed in Cape Town for the first two days of our hoeymoon and we were recommended to Four Rosmead by the South African Travel Agent we booked our entire trip with.
What a treat!
We arrived at 8.30 am, normally in chain hotels this would mean paying for an extra night to access our room, however, not at Four Rosmead. We were shown into our beautiful high ceilinged room which had a balcony overlooking Table Mountain. The bathroom was large and had a huge walk in shower.
All the artwork on display is by local artists and is for sale.
The various girls that were duty managers were both friendly and extremely helpful. They recommended restaurants, booked various tours and sorted out taxis for us without any problem.
We definetely hope to return.

My husband and I spent the first 4 nights of our honeymoon in Cape Town, where we stayed at Four Rosmead, in the Bellegables suite (cottage). Where do I begin with the delights of this place?

The hotel:

This is not your average 50-bedroom hotel. Four Rosmead is a small boutique guesthouse, with around 10 rooms. The guesthouse is very tastefully decorated with a neutral palet and splashes of colour. There is a distinct African theme that pervades the living areas. Everything is clean, modern and tidy.

It is located about a 5-minute drive into town in a leafy, pretty and quiet area out of town, within easy reach of Cape Town's attractions. Taxis are really cheap so getting around is never a problem.

Our Room:

We stayed in the cottage and it was great value for money. We had a separate living room (including sofa bed, chairs, microwave, fridge, sink, TV and DVD player, hi fi, home cinema system and ipod dock) and bedroom (fire place, king-size bed, ample storage), and a beautiful bathroom with a huge sunken bath tub, a monsoon shower and a view into the private garden. We absolutely loved our room.

The Food:

As a small guest house, there was no restaurant but we had breakfast each day. This consisted of fresh pastries (not your usual stale continental pastries that you find in most hotels), freshly squeezed fruit juices, toast, cereals, fresh fruit (many locally sourced), charcuterie, and a hot a la carte menu, including eggs and a daily hot special (which, while we were there, included pancakes and waffles).

The Service:

The best thing about Four Rosmead was the unparallelled service. We were served by Nadine and Jade during our stay, who were both a delight and truly helpful. On arrival on our first day, we were met by Jade who made check-in an informal welcome in our room. She explained everything we would need to know during our stay and also gave us tips on getting around, excursions and sightseeing as well as travel. During our stay, both Nadine and Jade were always quick to offer booking taxis and hire cars for us, and gave us regular advice on places to eat out and places to go. We were even given takeaway menus from local restaurants on a rainy night and when we had decided what to order, Jade not only ordered on our behalf, but simply added the cost to our room, and served the food to us on well-presented crockery, banquet-style.

The Extras

The little touches really made our stay memorable. On arrival, we found a bottle of champagne and some bath salts for us as a congratulations on our wedding, and we had a fruit basket that was replenished daily. Each day we would find little notes in our room with poetry or inspirational thoughts or even just little facts about surrounding areas. We also came back in the evenings to chocolates on our pillows, mood lighting and music. All staff were consistently beaming with genuine smiles and went out of their way to ensure our comfort and convenience. I could not fault the service in the slightest.

Overall, this was the best hotel experience I have had, even compared to many 5+* hotels that I have stayed at. Truly a pleasure to stay and I would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed at Four Rosmead for four nights in July at the end of my 40th birthday SA holiday.

Jade and Nadine and the team looked after us wonderfully, the breakfasts were excellent - especially the yummy pancakes special, and the rooms were immaculate and comfortable.

If you want to be within walking distance of the centre of Cape Town then this is the place for you.
