Four Rosmead

Four Rosmead occupies a beautiful mansion dating from the early 1900s in Oranjezicht in Cape Town. Today, the mansion serves as an outstanding boutique guesthouse. Set against the slopes of Table Mountain, the hotel is within a longish walk of both the city center and Cape Town historic sector.

Views from the house itself are nothing short of awesome, with Table Mountain to the rear, Lions Head and Signal Hill to the sides, and the whole of the city, the Bloubergstrand beaches, and Table Bay below.

The hotel offers four Deluxe (superior) rooms, three Luxury (standard) rooms, and a Suite in the Cottage. All are superb and individually decorated, each with extra-length beds and beautiful en-suite bathrooms. Air conditioning is standard as are bath robes, heated towel rail, under-tile heating, hairdryers, bar, fridge, and coffee/tea facilities. The rooms have a satellite TV, a DVD player (with a DVD library available in the guesthouse), and an IPOD base station with speakers.

Four Rosmead has beautiful landscaped gardens that add to its urban oasis aura. A patio overlooks the wonderful saltwater pool. At your request, the hotel can also arrange various spa services including massage treatments and facials.

Within walking distance of Four Rosmead are many highlights of Cape Town. These include the Company Gardens, the National Museum & Art Gallery, the Parliament buildings, and Green Market Square with its local artisans. Table Mountain is a destination in itself, and taking the cableway to the top is a must. The famous V&A Waterfront is known for its shops and restaurants. From there you can take the ferry to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela and many other famous people were held prisoner during the time of Apartheid.
