Four Rosmead is a stylish guesthouse set in Cape Town's quiet city neighbourhood of Oranjezicht. Built in 1903, this remodelled house is surrounded by landscaped gardens and boasts views of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head.

This peaceful setting delivers the best of both worlds: Four Rosmead is just a short stroll away from vibrant Long Street and Kloof Street, where a variety of cafes and restaurants create an exciting urban buzz, while many of Cape Town's main attractions such as the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain and the city beaches are just a short drive away.

Back at Four Rosmead, relax on a sun lounger next to the saltwater swimming pool - you may also want to find time to admire the selection of original South African artworks which are on display throughout the house.

Traveller Reviews

  • Four Rosmead really stood out, we were sorry not to stay a couple of days moreā€¦. maybe next time. The hotel is very cozy and the staff were really nice.

    Ana Lopes, January 2014
  • Four Rosmead was very nice and they were quite accommodating. We particularly enjoyed Sonia. They even helped us by "shipping" some of Janelle's (ok mine too) gifts and excess luggage home.

    Dave Meyer, September 2012
  • Four Rosmead - just gorgeous and can't think how I would improve upon that.

    Lorraine Gross, September 2012
  • We stayed at the most wonderful accommodation in both Cape Town (Four Rosmead Guest House) and Victoria Falls (The Victoria Falls Hotel). Both were full of character, charm and luxurious comfort complete with the most welcoming staff you could wish for.... nothing was ever too much trouble

    Brian Mccann, August 2012
  • The Four Rosmead was delightful. As you may recall, it was not my first choice hotel but rather was selected because the other hotel was closed for vacation. I am SO happy we made the switch. Jade, Nadine, Simone, Tonga & Patrick could not have been more welcoming. Two weeks earlier, I had sent an email asking if they could arrange a light dinner for us upon our arrival. Nadine's reply was so quick, I thought it was an automated response. Our dinner, sandwiches from a nearby restaurant, Licorice and Lime, were delicious. Our room which was lovely and faced Lion's Head, was spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained. The next day, which was now our free day because of the schedule change, Jade suggested we take the Hop On/Hop Off Red bus for a great tour of the City. It was fantastic! When you get on the bus they give you a headset so the entire trip is narrated. The bus ran quite regularly and we could get on and off as we pleased. We visited Table Mountain, the beach, and the waterfront. Ending our day with cocktails overlooking the City harbor and dinner in a Greek Seafood restaurant. Jade had also supplied us with the phone number for a local taxi service for our return trip in the evening. Breakfasts at the Four Rosmead are an event in themselves. There was always fresh fruit, yogurt parfaits, baked goods & pastries, jams & preserves and then, of course, the menu of hot items to choose from - YUM!

  • Yes, the trip will be a memorable one! All the plans you created went flawlessly and the accommodations and staff were wonderful.

    Barry Gershenson, September 2011
  • After Kruger we spent 2 days in Cape Town, staying in Four Rosmead. The accommodation and location was great. We spent one day viewing Table Mountain and walking along the quay. The ferry to the island was not running due to fog. The next day we got a guided tour that drove us around the peninsula to Cape Point, the penguins, Seal Island, and other fantastic sites.

    Rosalind Simpson Szeparowycz, June 2011
  • Four Rosmead in Cape Town was lovely.

    Elizabeth de Friend, March 2011
  • Cape Town - Beautiful! We could not believe how it felt similar to Vancouver! Four Rosmead was definitely a highlight of all accommodations. It was beautiful and immaculate, breakfast outstanding and the staff could not be more helpful and knowledgeable. This was a 5+++ star.

    Diane Hanbury, November 2010
  • Cape Town Rosemead - well... what can I say. Nadine, who is one of the managers running the guest house was so informative, helpful and like an in-house guide. Our room was great but the suite was just wonderful.... I wish we had the suite for all 4 nights - I was so jealous of people moving in when we were checking out.
