The room is nicely decorated and welcoming with clean, crisp, white linen. The staff are friendly and very polite. The breakfast was excellent, we however found it slow in coming (seems there is one person serving, which is a challenge if the dining room is full). The sherry after a busy day was more than welcome, thank you very much.

Roodenburg was a last-minute choice when my dad came down for a surprise visit in 2011 and then realised he had forgotten to book a hotel. At that time Roodenburg had been open for only a year or so, and so it was easy to book for just one night. Except one night turned into another, and another, and finally...

The staff at the Roodenburg house were very accommodating and helpful. Philip especially was visible and a real asset. The owner greeted us and was quite pleasant. The rooms were modest, but clean and neat. Breakfast was good, but with a 10 day stay, we would have liked more variety. We chose this location because it was within walking distance...

The service definitely deserves 5 stars as the team is really great. The place is lovely. Certain walls are paper thin, so it can be noisy depending on neighbours. When we came across the owner, she didn't seem interested in saying hi or talking.

Comfortable, central bed and breakfast. They went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible - even making us take away toasted sandwiches when our plans suddenly changed and we had to leave before breakfast !
