This is a guesthouse in a central suburb in a historic building. 10 rooms. Rooms are modern clean comfortable and well appointed. Garden and pool but latter not used due to a drought. Breakfast very good. All staff very helpful attentive and friendly. They make this place. The management love organising your day. I would definitely come back.

After a pretty average wedding night in a supposedly good country hotel in Sussex, this boutique hotel between Table Mountain and the heart of Cape Town has been a breath of fresh air. Beautifully appointed, great room with balcony and fantastic views. B&B only but lovely choice of hot and cold food and a rotating menu. The staff could not be more helpful and have so far given great recommendations for tours, restaurants and not to be missed sight seeing. Just lovely.

We had the good fortune of spending three glorious nights at this wonderful establishment. From the moment we arrived until our departure, we experienced gracious service, beautiful accommodations, and excellent food. I can't put into words how well-managed this little gem of a hotel is. We are forever grateful to our travel agent for recommending Four Rosmead.

A couples honeymoon visit, some good some bad, but all honest.

We had booked a double bed, but were given two singles pushed together. Whilst this is a byproduct of the European market, as some European travellers like seperate beds, we do not and expect a double bed to be a double bed or with sufficient covering so as it is not noticeably two separate beds.

When we spoke to the manager who quickly and without trouble changed our room to one with a double bed. However we feel like we shouldn't have had to ask and there didn't need to be a conversation if the booking had been addressed correctly in the first place.

Cape Town is currently suffering it's worst drought in 100yrs and 4 Rosmead is doing it's bit to help by directing guests to use as little water as required. Bravo . This has led to a mop bucket being left in the shower, to aide with water collection whilst you wait for the water to warm sufficiently (great idea), and the pool cover being left on.

When we asked to use the pool it became clear that this hadn't happened in a while and that the pump/filter may have been broken as the pool/water was dirty, leading to us having a 10 minute dip in not very clean water and no further usage due to chemical treatment.

When our concerns were raised with management, they were very happy to address our concerns with a substantial 25% refund, which equates to a full nights stay.

The bed/pool concerns are high enough on our priorities to justify the rating for us.

I would however add that the service apart from this was very good and there was much help given with places to visit, best times etc. I would have given 3.5 stars, if possible, for these reasons.

Dear Jonathan & Marie ,

Thank you for your honest feedback.

As discussed during your stay here we were not aware of your specific bed configuration. As you booked through an agent, your specific request was not relayed to us. As soon as we were aware of this we rectified it and moved you to a room with a Queen size bed. All our king size beds are 2 x ¾ beds pushed together. The agents are aware of this and should have requested a Queen size bed.

Yes, with the drought, it has become impossible for us to keep the pool open. Four Rosmead and Cape Town is under stage 5 water restrictions and we are now not allowed to fill the pool and must keep the pool cover on at all times. We were offering to take the cover off for guests so they could take a dip, but have now officially closed the pool. On the week you were here the pool company had come to install a pipe to keep the pump working as the water has dropped too low for the weir to continue to work. Unfortunately the pipe had come loose and this resulted in the pool going green. With the combined weather and the pool cover having to be kept on it is impossible to keep the pool clean and this is why we have now decided to close the pool until we receive more rain. Four Rosmead and Cape Town is in desperate need of water and there is a very high possibility that the taps will run dry by May 2018.

I am sad to see that these 2 things have justified your 3 star rating, but do understand.

I Hope you enjoyed the rest of your Honeymoon.

Kind Regards
