We were only staying at the B&B for one night but Carola and her husband could not have been more accommodating. The guesthouse is set in wonderful gardens and they were happy for us to sit there and enjoy our morning coffee by the pool with no hurry for us to leave. The breakfast was really good with a good...

We recently had a trip to Cape Town, after being on the road for 5 days we reached Wind Rose Guest House rather tired and were greeted by two amazing people who made us feel more like friends than guests. With myself being in a wheelchair and having to always cope with "wheelchair friendly" accommodation the Wind Rose was truly...

Peter & Carola went out of their way to make our stay an absolute pleasure. Including special requests at Breakfast and ensuring every part of our stay was enjoyable. The rooms have magnificent views and proximity to the City Centre and the Whale Coast makes this an ideal breakaway out of the City Centre. The Fynbos garden is well manicured...

Approx 10 minute drive to Gordon's Bay and its beaches, bars and beautiful sundowns. 15 minutes drive to Somerset West and huge shopping mall, half hour drive to Cape Town airport, as to Stellenbosch and winelands....

Great place! Rooms very spacious even with a bed for a toddler. For supper, we recommend you go to Al Forno at the beachfront - all their dishes are great and the view is awesome :-) Hope that the new owners will keep the great standard. Will check that out next time we are in the Cape.

This was our first trip to Cape Town, and we love it. Gordon's Bay is a beautiful suburb, and our stay at Wind Rose (about 1 km off the N2 highway, and about 3 km from Gordon's Bay) really made our holiday. Set in large, secure grounds, with swimming pool, the staff were absolutely great. Our room was spacious with...

Lovely location and ambience. Country setting just far enough from the hustle and bustle of peak season in Gordon's Bay. Rooms are airy, comfortable and privacy guaranteed. Guests are treated as if they are the only ones on the property. Attention to detail, from the thirsty towels to the complimentary, upmarket products for use by the guests. Friendly owners and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountain range, below Sir Lowry's pass, Wind-Rose Guest House and conference facility overlooks False Bay from Cape Point to Table Mountain in the distance. Located on 2 acres of indigenous gardens, we offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of City life, while still being close enough to enjoy all the best that the "Mother" City has to offer. The Guest House is centrally located in an area that offers restaurants, beaches, horseback riding, bird watching, hiking trails, deep sea fishing, water skiing, diving, whale watching and wine tasting. Our recreational room opens to an outside barbeque area where we can do a traditional South African braai (barbeque) while guests enjoy a refreshing drink of choice at our fully licensed bar or socialize with friends in our informal lounge area. For the fitness enthusiast we also have a fully equipped gym with treadmill, cross trainer, rowing machine, bicycle, weight machine etc. ... more   less
