Four Rosmead is a boutique guesthouse that offers affordable luxury to the discerning traveller. In a prime location, Four Rosmead is just five minutes walk to vibrant Kloof Street, famed for its restaurant and café culture and also within walking distance of the city - approximately 20 minutes downhill, so you may want to get a taxi back up the hill. The waterfront, Clifton and camps bay beaches are also easily reached by car. With very personable staff the property is a great base from which to explore what Cape Town has to offer.
The house was built in 1903 and is classified as a provincial monument. It has been stylishly re-modelled in keeping with its rich history and now offers a cape contemporary classic feel. All seven deluxe en suite rooms are individually named and decorated. In keeping with the feel of the property all have been designed with a contemporary classic look. Interiors are chic and eclectic with a distinctive African spirit. All have a crispy, airy feel and have views of either Table Bay, the city, Signal Hill or Lions Head. The suite is separate from the main house on the other side of the swimming pool. It consists of an en suite bedroom, bathroom with additional outdoor shower, lounge and a private courtyard and garden with views of Lion's Head. There is a queen sized sleeper couch in the lounge, which is able to accommodate two additional guests.
The guest lounge area is great for relaxing in the winter months and stretches out to an outdoor terrace, which overlooks the garden and pool area. The pool is salt water but there is a fresh water shower adjacent to it. There is a pamper room available on request that offers a variety of massage treatments. As Four Rosmead is a B&B property they have made numerous provisions for lunch and dinner. Their lunchtime 'Liquorice and Lime' menu includes a range of tempting light dishes, which can be ordered in. For dinner, if you don't wish to eat out, in house dinners may be arranged on request through a company called Mr Delivery, who deliver meals from over 20 restaurants and take away outlets.
