“Just one night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We spent one night at Roosje Van De Kaap Guest House. The staff made us with a cup of tea upon arrival which was welcome. However we found the room very dark with not too many creature comforts. The food in the restaurant was good but service in the evening very slow.

I had only a quick sleepover on my way to Durban, so a short but fascinating stay and worth coming back for a longer period.

The view on the mountains is very impressive and the room was very good.

So was the service.

Our room at Roosje van de Kaap was very quiet with great views of Langeberg.
Our hosts and staff were so welcoming and friendly - nothing too much trouble.
We are sorry it is likely to be our only visit to that part of the world!

As Roosje van de Kaap had been strongly recommended by our son and daughter we stayed their and were pleasantly surprised. The couple running it are kind and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful and the meals asre excellent. We recommend Roosje van de Kaap for anyone who wants to see the region and enjoy fine hospitality.
