Like any good quality guest house it is neat, tidy and spacious but Four Rosmead trounces the humdrum with cheery colours, colour-coded original artworks and a pleasing balance of form and function. The en suite rooms, eight in all, have each been decorated with a distinctive character that adds to the personal and intimate feeling you get when you stay at Four Rosmead. Bathrooms are a designer marble and glass concoction and the rooms make full use of the mountain and bay views that Oranjezicht offers.
Breakfast is taken in the Buddhist-retreat style courtyard with full views of the city, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Signal Hill to stir your appetite for the day's exploring.
Kloof Street and its cafés, restaurants and boutiques are a pleasant 10-minute walk from Four Rosmead, the city centre a further 10 minutes; you'll need a car to get to the rest of Cape Town's must-see, must-do attractions.
