Property's Favourite Review
I cannot say enough about my experience here. Rosedene feels like home. The common areas are welcoming and cozy. The hostess Deirdre is friendly and full of local knowledge. The rooms are spacious with every amenity and the bathrooms are also very comfortable. The breakfast is lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The area is very nice and feels safe, with several great restaurants and shops nearby, Rosedene is my new go-to place to stay when I am in Cape Town.

Located in Cape Town’s central Gardens area, Rosedene is a very comfortable guest house. The location makes it easy to reach the principal attractions, the staff are very friendly and helpful; there is parking just outside. Our room was spacious and clean as were the communal areas. An excellent breakfast was available. Very good value.

We had a lovely stay at Rosedene, Deirdre and her team are amazing, we couldn’t have chosen better. There is a generator which kicks in when there is load shedding, so there is always power. Accommodation is restful and and breakfast fabulous.

We booked the entire guesthouse to accommodate our daughters wedding guests. They were all very complimentary and nothing was too much to arrange. They all loved being together in a home environment and had the best fun.

We loved our time at Rosedene. The interior is homey and warm, and so we felt like we were visiting family. The staff and owners of the guesthouse were all so friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Unfortunately, one of our bags was lost after flying to Cape Town. The wonderful people at Rosedene told us not to worry and took over all the communication with the airport so we could go out and enjoy Cape Town. Nick, the owner, took the time to write down a few places for us to explore in Cape Town, and he and his wife, Christine even offered us a ride on their way out. The breakfast is beautiful, the rooms are clean, Monky the cat is a great company, and the neighborhood is pleasant and close to many nice restaurants. I 100% recommend!

Thank you so much for your kind words and feeling like Rosedene is home-from-home! Nick and Christine will be back mid-month and are sure to be delighting our guests once more. We would love to have you stay with us again when next you are in Cape Town.
