Environmental Policy

Four Rosmead is pro-active on the water conservation front: all grey water is recycled to water the garden, which is landscaped with plants like fynbos that require less irrigation; the salt-water pool is solar-heated and its backwash recycled after treatment, avoiding the use of municipal water.

Social Responsibility

Staff members are encouraged to continue their education and Four Rosmead facilitates this by providing interest-free study loans; remuneration levels at the hotel are above industry standard.

Four Rosmead supports FEEDBACK, which helps the 22% of children in South Africa who experience hunger. The intention of the organisation is to link between people who have excess food and are willing to reach out, and communities where hunger and malnourishment is a way of life. FEEDBACK is committed to community development in South Africa through the redistribution of excess food.

When to go?

Cape Town is wonderful at any time of year and there is masses to do come wind, rain or shine. High summer is from late September through to February, and March is delightful. April to September is referred to as the 'Green' season in the Cape - it sounds better than the rainy season - but days can be as hot as British summertime, without fierce sunshine.

Save to favouritesPrintMailFour RosmeadHidden away in the leafy suburb of Oranjezicht in the lee of Table Mountain, with wraparound views of the city and the bay, this century-old listed building was revamped by its art-loving owner to create one of Cape Town's most stylish boltholes. Many original features like the Oregon pine floors, porthole windows and fireplaces were conserved; while striking new elements include an angular wood and steel loggia which spans out above the garden terrace. Flowerbeds of raked gravel, neatly tended rosemary hedges, and a decked salt-water pool and fishpond induce a Zen mood of studied calm in the garden. Step inside and it's more upbeat, with jazzy African paintings and sculptures in the sun-filled lounge and 8 classy rooms adding zest and colour to the building's airy, elegant lines. To add to this architectural delight, any request to the quietly professional staff at Four Rosmead will be dealt with promptly, and any thanks will be acknowledged with one word: pleasure. We couldn’t think of a better way to describe what our stay here was filled with.
