Dreams will be inspired by quotes on your pillow, different each night.
It's not often a piece of history gets a new lease on life, but here on the slopes of Table Mountain near Cape Town's centre, Four Rosmead has been fast forwarded from the old world to the new.
Looking at the views alone, one can see why this structure was saved. From the hotel, guests enjoy 360º views of Table Mountain, Lion's Head, Signal Hill, and the city. In less than ten minutes, guests can be at any of these destinations - not to mention a few choice beaches.
Past reception and the breezy lounge, guests can head off to one of eight rooms. The Beaulieu room (standard) offers a French lightness. For something a tad more sprawling, head past the main pool and into the Bellegables Cottage, featuring an outdoor shower, bedroom fireplace, private courtyard, and home theatre system.
Days begin with Continental or full English breakfasts, often enjoyed poolside. Design junkies may opt to simply tour Four Rosmead for a spell afterwards, admiring the deft blend of iconic furniture and local art. If a particular piece of art catches your eye, simply ask for it to be wrapped up, as most works are for sale.
