I loved my stay ... my room was great, but would have liked the bar fridge to be stocked or at least the bottled water put in the fridge. There was also NO SOAP or body wash, plus no shampoo, conditioner or body lotion which I do think could have been provided within the price I paid. I understand that...

We enjoyed three nights at this great location. Sea Point is a wonderful spot for exploring Cape Town as it's close to many of the must see attractions of the area. The owners and staff, especially Angus, are particularly friendly. Chef, Steven, served a lovely breakfast each morning we were there. Our room was spacious with windows we could open...

The Villa Rose was our best B&B in Cape Town and our hole South Africa trip. All other accommodations on our trip to garden road couldn’t reach that level. The breakfast was excellent and the owners where very friendly.

What a charming place with wonderful, efficient and friendly hosts. Could not find a fault (not that I was looking). I enjoyed the most spacious room with fresh crisp linen. Even had a view onto the Atlantic seaboard. The breakfast was outrageously delicious and well presented and filled me for the entire day. Wished I stayed longer than 1 night...

But no reason to care...it was welcoming, perfectly appointed, impeccably clean, comfortable even w/o a/c (as promised due to thick walls of this 150 year old house). Exquisite breakfasts and hosts who will do anything your heart desires to fulfill a visit to Cape Town. Great location. A real gem. Don't wait to book - rooms go in a flash...

Many of the reviews talk about how wonderful breakfast is. Believe them. The manager was incredibly nice and accommodating of our late arrival and late departure times. If you're looking for a place to stay in Sea Point, this is it.

Great stay, great hosts. Awesome linen and incredible breakfasts. I really enjoyed my stay and think it's in a great position. I'm a light sleeper, so struggled a bit to sleep in room 1, overlooking the road with road noise, my colleague sleep in another room, like the dead. I think a blind over the beautiful stained glass window above...

Thanks for writing positive feedback and really enjoyed you and your colleague staying with us, it was a pleasure. Yes, part of our refurbishment to come is the double pane windows out front.

We had a spacious room with good beds. The breakfasts are really delicious and served by one of the friendly owners. The Town centre and the Waterfront are within a 15 minutes drive. At night is your car overlooked by a private guard !
