"Four Rosmead was in a very good location in the shadow of Table Mountain. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfasts were really good. The location was ideal for walking to and from some local restaurants and a short taxi drive to some further afield or to the Waterfront. It was also ideal for getting to the Cape and Table Mountain."
