Oranjezicht, Cape Town, South Africa
The Telegraph, January 2011
"A discreet, stylish boutique guesthouse in a residential suburb on the lower slopes of Table Mountain, with subtle décor touches and tranquil atmosphere... swimming pool & sundeck, landscaped gardens and immaculate service."
"Boasting panoramic views of Cape Town and its surroundings, this exclusive guesthouse combines classic style with contemporary flair... Within walking distance of vibrant Kloof Street, (it) has been tastefully decorated over the years. Originally built in 1903, the guest house is a listed monument and impresses with its landscaped garden and chic interior."

"The service standards at Four Rosmead are astonishly attentive for the price, as are the many thoughtful touches, like fresh milk in the fridge and beach bag with towels and frisbee in your cupboard. Decór is soothing and tasteful, with more personality than the myriad guesthouses pressed from the same design magazine; this has a lot to do with the art you'll find everywhere, much of it for sale - if only everything was!"
Guardian, April 2008
"This inner-city sanctuary full of flair will appeal to those who prefer to stay somewhere peaceful and secluded but within striking distance of all the action... Original features such as fireplaces, wooden flooring and porthole windows have been conserved, while vibrant contemporary art and crafts are displayed (and sold)... Outdoor space is small but effective with a saltwater plunge pool, zen garden and loungers...This is a four-star guesthouse going on for five."

“The staff were very welcoming, the room was very nice (not luxurious). The breakfasts were amazing. We loved sitting on their terrace each morning eating their fabulous food. The garden was gorgeous - a real oasis in the city with a lovely pool. We thought the location was good if you have a car - easy to get over to Camps Bay, into the city or up to Lion's Head. The decor of the house was lovely with lots of space to relax and both hotel and car parking felt very secure.”
