Running as a boutique hotel since 2004, located in Cape Town, in Oranjezicht, Four Rosmead is a first-class piece of accommodation.
Built in 1903, and now a classified monument, Four Rosmead is set in a small walled garden and possesses views of Table Mountain, the city and many of Cape Town’s most significant landmarks. Enormously stylish, the garden includes a steel and wood loggia, gravel borders, a small heated pool and a fish pond, while the house itself is a clean looking 2 story townhouse, its traditional architectural features complimented by the property’s laidback contemporary interior design.
Food & service
The food is of a consistently high standard, and the breakfast – a buffet with hot items cooked to order – a delight. Little touches such as wine and chocolates on arrival distinguish the fantastic service.
Consisting of a main house and 10 sleeping rooms, Four Rosmead is characterised by smart easy chairs, sofas, low tables and African art (paintings, sculptures), and by an energy that is at once relaxed and enthusiastic. Shared areas include a breakfast room and lounge.
The rooms are divided into 2 classes: deluxe (6), luxury (4). Each room comes with a double/twin bed and en-suite bathroom. Stylishly put together, all rooms include a table and chair, HD Smart Satellite TV and DVD player & a Sound Bar. Comfortable and featuring enormous headboards, the beds are a delight, the bathrooms clean, and well maintained. Please note that Wi-Fi can be unreliable.
Activities at Four Rosmead include excursions to nearby Kloof Street, to the city centre and to the beach, or further afield to Cape Point and to the winelands.
