What a wonderful experience, the perfect balance between a bed and breakfast and a place that feels like home. It's cozy and quaint and yet there is adequate privacy. The bed was soooooooooo comfortable my goodness and the layout of the room was just perfect. The breakfast in the morning was just too divine and Neil and his staff made me feel like I was home! I will definitely be back. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Dear Guests, Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review. Villa Costa Rose is situated in Sea Point, a suburb which is in between the City of Cape Town and Camps Bay, basically in the middle of everything. We advise guests that car hire in really not necessary as you can safely walk in the area, we have great restaurants and a beautiful sea front promenade. If you would like to visit South Africa again and stay at Villa Costa Rose we would be pleased to offer you a 15% discount if you contact us directly.

Villa Costa Rose is a great place to stay in Cape Town. Located in Seapoint it is close to good restaurants and the seafront. The rooms are clean, extremely comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is rich and lovingly prepared. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us an excellent support by organizing e.g. a rented car or Safari. We can recommend Villa Costa Rose without exception.

Villa Costa Rose is a great place to start exploring the beautiful city of Cape Town! Situated in the safe neighborhood of Sea Point, it has nicely made-up rooms with some artworks (we got a room upgrade and had the one beside the pool, outside the main building), and offers a very good breakfast. Got some nice restaurant and sightseeing tips from Sophie as well. Thank you very much, Rob and Sophie, to make our first visit in the city such a great time!

During our recent trip to South Africa we had the pleasure of staying here for (unfortunately only) one night. Villa Costa Rose is located in a nice neighbourhood of Cape Town with lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance -> good for the evenings. V&A Waterfront is also pretty close, about 5 minutes by car. The rooms are really nice and the view to the garden with all its greenery is fantastic and makes you forgot you're actually in a big city. The landlord is a lovely man who is enthusiastic about Cape Town and loved to answer all the questions we had. Breakfast was also very nice. Can only recommend this place and would definitely want to come back next I'm in Cape Town.

Location: Good location in central Cape Town. Buses nearby but a car is recommended for day trips. The hotels facitilities: Relly weak wifi. Annoying!! The router is placed in the common areas by the kitchen and this area is closed after office hours why you can´t use the wifi at high speed at night. Room: Bed horrible. Formed like the Devilś peak. Bedroom extremely tiny and claustrophobic. Good mini bar. Nice with a balcony even if the furniture was outdated and unsteady. Breakfast: Usual African brekfast with fruit cheese, bad coffee, eggs and bread. Average. A plus for the pancakes. Staff: Uninterested of our stay until it was time to pay. The guy who checked us in did all in a well practised routine. Overall: Worse than expected.Would not recommend this place. Surprised by the earlier reviews.

Thanks for the review Annike! Such a shame you had such a negative experience but reading your other reviews of other places it seems you are not happy with much and find most places you visit terrible :( Wi-fi is fibre and 100mbps - sure its not like europe but it is one of the best. You were also here during the cities power cuts (out of our control) which affected the central distribution centers. Our King rooms have Netflix and this streams very well. The bed .... we have checked with all guests in that room since your stay and they find it very comfortable, perhaps it is too firm for your taste. Bad coffee? Most our guests love it and Brazillians rave about it so I will go with them on this one. We are interested in all our guests and we plan many activities, routes and suggestions for them. The breakfast manager always engages with all guests to plan and enquire about their day and most guests love and appreciate this. Overall: hope you find some happiness in your travels ! All the best and a happy new decade :)
