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

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.
