Four Rosmead is a four-star boutique guest house in Oranjezicht, a great location on the slopes of Table Mountain and within walking distance of Green Market Square, the parliament buildings and Company Gardens. The views across Cape Town and Table Bay from the large guesthouse windows are exceptional.
The house was built in 1903 and is classified as a provincial monument. Owner David Sharrock fled the world of Joburg investment banking to realize his dream, remodelling the house into of a stylish French–inspired guest house. The interiors have a clean, modern look and are designed to make guests feel at home. Walls are adorned with paintings by well known South African artists, including Katherine Wood, Munro, David Kuijers, Johan Smith, Anine Barnard and Isabel Le Roux.
The eight en suite bedrooms are individually decorated in a modern classic style. There is one suite, situated in a pretty cottage, four deluxe rooms with queen beds and three luxury rooms with twin/king beds. The deluxe rooms each have balconies with fantastic views. Other rooms open onto patio gardens. The rooms were upgraded in July 2008, adding flat screen TVs, and Caesar stone slabs in the bathrooms.
