We really felt like we were been taken care of. The facilities were great - lovely pool and gym and the boule court was a nice distraction. Robin, the owner,...

Had a wonderful stay in Rodwell House recently. A beautiful, superbly maintained house with no stone unturned when it comes to attention to detail. You will first notice the exquisite artwork adorning the walls as you arrive in the lobby. Staff are friendly and efficient. Perfect for a wine, food or art lover as all three are exceptional here (especially...

Nothing was too much trouble, including cooking supper for the children to our order.

We really had a superb stay here - staff very welcoming and there is nothing lacking in the rooms - and of course the great wines on offer! Some may say it is a bit far from the capetown waterfront, but really , this wouldnt stop us from returning - its great!

My husband, daughter and I stayed four nights at Rodwell House, January 1st to 5th. We were so impressed. This is a comfortable beautifully furnished hotel where the food is plain but tasty and beautifully presented and service is truly outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and we were very sad to leave. The views from the terrace and sea...

We were greeted by the hotel manager, Chris as we arrived, and the welcome was warm and friendly, includign a lovely cold glass of white wine. We knew straight away that this was going to be a good one. The rooms were superb, overlooking the sea, with nice balconies. The food was top class, and the chef and waiters were...

I had visited the coastal towns of St James and Kalk Bay on a previous holiday and decided to investigate hotels in the area for our latest trip. We found Rodwell House and enquired directly on their website; we were both surprised and impressed to receive an email from the owner, Robin Von Holdt, who kindly offered us an invitation...

We were lucky enough to find this boutique hotel and we really couldn't have asked for more. So much so, that we’re compelled to write a first ever review. It was a wonderful mixture of relaxation, great food, wine, beautiful surroundings- without a doubt, truly outstanding. The hotel is located in a quiet, small, elegant coastal village..... in which you...

My husband and I stayed at Rodwell House for a romantic break of two blissful days towards the end of the Capetonian summer. We were astounded at the level of detailed attention paid to all aspects of this boutique hotel - from the hand-picked antique furniture mixed with high-quality modern fittings to the extraordinary art and wine collection. It is...
