Stayed at Wale Lodge and Rose Lodge on my recent trip to CT. Was a great choice. Rooms are modern and clean. The location is ideal and easy to get to. Will definitely choose again for next trip.... Daniel gave us a very warm welcome !!!

The Rose Lodge was a great place to stay while visiting Cape Town... What was nice about the house on Whale Street was that we were able to serve ourselves to breakfast at our convenience. The guest house is clean, and the service personel is very friendly. Beware not to be out on foot around this location looking like a... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our guest house. We are happy you enjoyed your stay so much, however, we do think that the area is not as dangerous as you seem to think. The problem is created by the South Africans themselves who are afraid to go out at night which leaves the streets empty and potentially... More

My son and his girlfriend spend last night in Cape Town and I booked them a room at Rose Cottage because it seemed nice and central. They arrived at 4pm and had to wait 45 minutes in their car for someone to open for them. We were told that there is only parking in the street available but that they... More

This one night booking was taken by my housekeeper telephonically. He also checked in the young couple. I received a call from the boy’s mother complaining that there was not a security guard around the clock to watch his new car which was parked in the street. We only have free street parking at Rose Lodge. I explained to her... More

a very good short stay, all activities arranged by Bruce before our arrival allowed us to have the most of it. Too bad we didn't get an opportunity of meeting Bruce to say thank you... Daniel and his friend were very helpful and kind.

I visited Cape Town recently, and stayed at Rose Lodge, 1 of 3 small B&B's in the Bo-Kaap section, all under the same management. Bruce, the owner, runs a very clean and modern-style place. His assistants are very helpful and accommodating, making taxi arrangements, or booking tours and offering suggestions for worthwhile sights, etc. The breakfasts were prepared and served... More

A simple, clean and nice Place to stay in Capetown. Very close to the center, walkingdistance to the hotspots. Nice View over the city and mountains. Breakfast could have been a bit better but was o.k.We would come back.

We were staying at the Rose Lodge for 5 nights. As a B&B that had won the title "winner of excellence" in the past two years I was expecting a better service. Our room number 2 was upstairs, had its own nice bathroom and was perfectly clean. We had our laundry done as the staff agreed to do so after... More
