I cannot recommend Roosje van de Kaap highly enough. The place has old world charm and a pleasant pool & is located close to historic sights, restaurants and a national park, but its greatest asset is the owner (Ilizabet) and her general manager. When my partner unexpectedly needed urgent medical attention, they could not have been more helpful - recommending a local doctor, arranging an appointment and even giving us lifts to & from the surgery. That evening we had dinner in the restaurant, which was delicious (try to the bobotie) and served by people that were consummate hosts. We were also given free lifts to & from the Intercape stop, & given free drinks upon arrival.
I have been fortunate enough to visit twenty or so countries over the years, but Roosje van de Kaap is undoubtedly one of the best guest houses I have ever stayed in.
