Clean and well maintained. Staff pleasant and helpful. Great location within walking distance of V&A Waterfront, Long Street, and several bars and restaurants. Pretty good value as well. Can't comment on the shared kitchen or the breakfast ingredients provided as I never availed myself of either. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 2 nights in this comfortable apartment. We had the upstairs so were able to access the roof and watch the sun go down. Adequate breakfast and we were invited to cook an evening meal or bring in a takeaway if we wanted. We never saw the other guests staying there. Quiet area but wouldn't walk around alone... More

It's so good to hear your very short 2 night stay was such a pleasure. We also think we have 3 small cozy guest houses geared to individuals and not your run of the mill tourist. The Bo-Kaap is a unique area in central Cape Town close to everything. We hope you will be back. Kind regards, Daniel, Edward &... More

We only stayed one night. We arrived late (Bruce arranged for transfer from the airport). Room was impecable, very comfortable. Breakfast was compleet and Bruce very friendly with good advices on where to go. It is a perfect place and location to explore Cape Town and surroundings from.

Daniel was there to greet us on arrival. He was more than helpful during our stay and easy to communicate with. The place is welcoming and bright and modern. We had the room with a little courtyard. We met the owner Bruce who was charming and helpful. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Rose Cottage is well situated to... More

Tasteful and clean interiors, delicious homemade muffins and gracious staff. There was a great selection of basic breakfast foods ready for you to prepare yourself. Bruce and his were very welcoming when we arrived and kindly led us to our room.

Excelent location. Bruce has extraordinary nice taste and good recomendations for the visitors. Breakfast, for me, was enough to start the day, with good fresh products. My favorite thing is location, walking distance from water front and some main streets and down town. We had wifi and the chance to interact with other visitors. I love dogs, that gave Rose... More
