    1st night on honeymoon - worst night

    We arrived at the hotel and checked in to be given the room beside the reception area and breakfast tables. We thought ok this is what we had booked so our fault. How bad can it be really. The room was cramped, bathroom door hit the toilet on opening and we could hear everything as the breakfast tables were about 2 metres from the door. We questioned the room after the first night and were told this was what we booked. Upon contacting we got to the bottom of it and Rosedene had in fact downgraded us to the basic room from the deluxe we paid for as there were no others left. We booked February last year and did specify it was our honeymoon and we wanted an upper floor room. We got the opposite. After the second night we had enough and eventually the hotel manager moved us to another hotel. What a hassle for the start of our honeymoon. We felt like we were just a number to them. Beware of the downstairs room. It is terrible and don’t be missold like us. Don’t be sold by the free glass of wine gimmick. Would not recommend.

    Nice accommodations for an other building. Clean rooms, nice breakfast, and complimentary wine during happy hour.

    Did we get put into the right room?

    The Rosedene is a nice guest house in a pleasant and beautiful location close to Table Mountain. We would have been very pleased except we were placed into the wrong room. Our room was on the ground floor, very noisy, and not very private. The noise was reasonable but the old Manor Style building and beautiful floors echo through the downstairs. I'm sure we would have been much more comfortable in one of the many Deluxe En Suite rooms on the second floor as per our reservation through Expedia. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is great. I am disappointed that the management didn't notice the discrepancy between Standard ground floor room and Deluxe En Suite and clarify the mix up with Expedia or make an effort to move us to a more comfortable room. We asked to be moved and the request was not relayed to the management. We were told those were more expensive when in fact they were the exact price and room we booked. We also noticed that the Rosedene Web site has the exact same ground floor room we were given listed at two different prices. An employee told us it was the only room on the first floor room and is called their Standard Room. That being said we would stay with them again but be very clear that we get the room we book. I hope Expedia and Rosedene can communicate to assure correct booking.

    Pros: It is in a great location, very interesting, and clean. The breakfast was great and the staff friendly.

    Cons: Make sure the get the correct room booked through travel sites. Rosedene's Web site is a little hard to understand the types of rooms.

    Location: Very nice location for taking in both the city proper and the surrounding sites. Beautiful views.

    Hospitality plus

    Served a sumptuous breakfast. Beautiful airy surroundings. Small number of guests but treated as family. Big plus was the dedicated wi-fi that was not restricted like the big hotels in the city Centre. About 20 min walk into town (downhill) but coming back can be good exercise. Close up views of Table Mountain right outside your window. Lovely garden attached. Would definitely return.

    Pros: So-to access , hospitality, comfortable room, large hot and cold breakfast
