My husband and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon and it was everything we expected plus more! We booked our honeymoon through a travel agent (go2africa.com- Tracy Payne- absoutely amazing!). The place is a small guesthouse/bed and breakfast. The rooms are beautiful. Our room wasn't very large but had all the standard amenities plus a balcony with a gorgeous view of Table Mountain. The bathroom is very modern with heated floors and towel racks! A nice little surprise :) The staff at Four Rosmead is absoutely wonderful. They were extremely helpful in setting up our activities and guiding us around Capetown. The guesthouse is located in the Garden District. It seems far from everything, but is only a 10 minute cab ride away from mostly anything you want to do and the cabs are affordable. Also, you can catch the city sightseeing bus just down the street. The staff at Four Rosmead is available when you need them but mostly stay out of your way which is nice. You get a key to the front gate and front door as well as one to your room. It feels like your own little home. There are only a few rooms so you don't run into the other guests too often either. The breakfast is very delicious. There is a spread of fresh fruits, juices, meats, cheeses, etc. In addition, they have a different menu with hot food items available everyday. We really enjoyed eating their breakfasts. In addition, every night, the staff would put a CD on in our room, leave us a cute note and chocolates. I don't know if this was just for our honeymoon or if they do it for everyone. It was so nice and thoughtful and was something I looked forward to everyday when we'd get back. Also, the house has a collection of beautiful paintings hanging around which are for sale. We ended up buying one!! Again, the staff was so helpful in having the painting shipped to the US for us.
While in Capetown, we went to Table Mountain one day (via the city sightseeing bus which I highly recommend) as well as the V&A Waterfront, the aquarium, Camps Bay and many other sights. We did the winelands the next day which was beautiful and very fun. We booked the tour through Four Rosmead. It was worth every penny. The other days we just ended up exploring the city and eating a lot of good food!
Overall, Four Rosmead was wonderful and a perfect start to our honeymoon. I can't emphasize how great the staff is. The guesthouse is beautiful and located in a very peaceful area. It's certainly not a party hotel, but the party is only a cab ride away :)

We stayed at Four Rosmead having read all the trip advisor reviews, we thought that on this basis we could not have gone wrong as everyone recommended the place. Well they were right it was simply one of the best places we have ever stayed, not one thing was overlooked, the staff (Jade, Natallie and Nadine) were fantastic. jade took care of our every need, booked restaurants, recommended restaurants, organised our guided tour and sorted out all our taxi's. The rooms are superb, the breakfasts are excellent and the place is incredibly peaceful. It's location is ideal at the foot of Table Mountain, equal distance to Camps Bay and the V&A waterfront in a taxi. We are lucky to have travelled quite a bit, and if big 5 Star hotels with lots of rooms and multiple swimming pools are your thing this is not for you, however if you like boutique hotels in a perfect location with attentive service, book Four Rosmead next time you visit Cape Town - We certainly will be going back!

This is a lovely guesthouse with extremely friendly and knowledgable staff. Upon arrival we were provided with drinks and shown around the property. We were then given a brief run down on activities to do in Cape Town and offered any help we needed with bookings, directions, restaurants etc.
The guesthouse itself is very tastefully decorated. The rooms are large, modern, well furnished and equipped with everything you need for your stay. There is a nice communal area with plenty of seating and an honesty bar should you require anything to drink. The pool area itself is compact, but is really a bonus area given the fact that you clearly wouldn't stay here if you wanted a relaxing by the pool type holiday!
The girls that run the guesthouse are all extremely helpful and nothing is too much hassle for them. They make your stay a very personal experience from when you wake up in the morning all the way through to the stories placed on your pillow in the turndown service. All other staff are very attentive too and the level of service given is very humbling. The breakfasts are lovely with a good quality selection and a daily special on the menu.
The guesthouse is only a short walk from the top of Kloof Street and a short drive from Table Mountain. It is a very good walk to the Waterfront though and I would suggest driving there instead. There is onsite secure parking however there are not always enough spaces for the number of cars therefore you need to leave your car keys with the staff in case they need to move cars around whilst you are out - this wasn't a problem whilst we were visiting.
The only negatives I can think of have already been mentioned here. They are the WIFI access. Given the prices for staying here I cannot understand why they give you a very small amount of free access and then charge you for additional amounts of usage. You do this by purchasing cards with passwords on etc. Everywhere else we stayed at in South Africa provided free usage. The only other thing is regularly advertising that you can buy the artwork and finishings from within the guesthouse. You are even given a pricelist in your room. On our last night we were given a leaving drink (which was a lovely gesture) and a little note thanking us for visiting. If it had finished there then great, but added to the bottom of the note was a sentence asking that if we wanted to buy the tray the drinks came on it would cost.............? I know this sounds picky but little things can annoy you on holiday occasionally!
Overall this is a great place to stay and I would recommend it to absolutely anyone

Beautiful old property lovingly restored.

Wonderful staff- no request is too much trouble. It puts many UK qualikty hotels to shame.

Delightfully furnished rooms and well appointed bathrooms, with real attention to the smallest detail.

Breakfasts are delicious and there is a light, tasty lunch menu should you require it.

As honeymooners we were warmly greeted with fruit and champagne and made to feel very at home whilst they completed our check in paperwork- well worth a visit

After getting very lost travelling from the airport to Four Rosmead we were absolutely delighted to arrive at this gem of a guesthouse. We were immediately greated by staff with two cold beers to de-frazzel us, and were then shown to an absolutely stunning suite, modern but cosy with gas fire a real winner.
Breakasts here were perfection. The staff couldn't do enough to help us organise our day and despite great day trips out, we were always excited to return to our suite.
I cant say what the other rooms were like although i'm sure they are all lovely. But the suite really was special.
