I stayed at Rose Lodge for two nights. I especially appreciated the short walking distance to the city centre. The rooms were clean, tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was also very nice and helpful. It was an alltogether pleasant experience!

very comfortable accomodation, helpful staff in a vibrant histroic part of old Cape Town. This is an original house, nicely renovated on a busy street, with all the facilities and restaurants of the city in walking distance.

Two short stays at this wonderful B&B - I think this was our eighth visit. What you get is stunning personal attention in a spotlessly clean room with a sumptuous breakfast and, hot, fresh coffee. Edward is the perfect host with Bruce's wise and gentle hand on the tiller in the background. Value for money is very good. Highly recommended.... More

Rose Lodge is a quaint B&B very close to the city center in the historical BoKaap Malay quarters. From the first time we arrived we were welcomed with open arms and a warm friendly smile. We have been back twice and feel like family. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, restaurants and food stores are within walking distance and if... More

We stayed at 28 Rose Street. Some might say the room was small, but we found it exceptionally clean, bright, and well-appointed and did not need more space. Staff very friendly and arranged early breakfast for us on several days. The location is the best. Would most certainly stay again.

My friend and I stayed in the Rose Lodge for the first time, but it felt like coming home everyday. The Rose Lodge is perfectly situated in the heart of the BoKaap and you can reach the centre and a lot of nice restaurants by foot. Outside there are parking lots available and the car is safe at all the... More

Rose Lodge is great. I would stay here again without reservation. The room I was in was small by American standards but beautifully appointed and quite comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the neighborhood really can't be beat.

Accommodation not what I expected and hoped for. Room was small and stuffy. Although it had a kitchenette, it is shared with 2 other rooms which makes getting morning coffee a problem of you are not properly dressed before venturing out your room. Breakfast was a non-event. Wouldn't stay again. But it served its purpose for an overnight stay.

Thank you for reviewing us. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your one night stay more. Yes, our rooms are small as these are old Cape Malay family homes in an historic area of CT. We cannot make them any bigger but they do have everything one needs - en-suite shower & toilet, hairdryer, toiletries, clock-radio, TV (no satellite TV),... More

My room (the top floor with roof terrace) at 22 on Rose was excellent - good design and decor, high quality bed and linen. No concerns about security. Self-catering breakfast meant opportunities to talk to other guests. Tea, coffee and other kitchen facilities available all day were very welcome. Above all the staff were very very helpful and friendly, sorted... More
