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

We stayed three nights in Rose Lodge. The service was amazing and Edward, Amanda and Daniel were the most helpful and kind people. The breakfast was exquisite with freshly baked croissants and muffins in plus of all the other things. The location was perfect for all the toursist attractions in Cape Town and the area felt quite safe to walk... More

I was so lucky to get the upstairs room in the second property - it comes with a double private roof terrace! The room itself has plenty of storage, as does the bathroom - the shelves are great! TV was minimal, but I guess that can be seen as a hint to go out and explore wonderful Cape Town instead... More

Rose/Wale Lodge welcomed my doggies and I as if we were old friends! After searching endlessly for pet-friendly accommodation in Cape Town, the helpful and friendly owner and staff have ensconced themselves indelibly in our minds. Beautiful, clean, comfortable suites come highly recommended! Thank you again, Bruce. Our best regards to all concerned.

Three pleasant nights at 22 Rose Street, a clean and neat converted cottage in the Bo-Kaap. Very central and only a few street blocks away from the City and the night life of Long Street and yet the area is quiet. Self service breakfast and an overnight car guard are included. I had the privilege to stay in the top... More

Thank you Wulf for your review. We also think we have a great location in an historic residential area (the Bo-Kaap) and yet just a few minutes from central Cape Town. We look forward to hosting you again. Kind regards, Bruce More

Good location, City centre, close to CAPE TOWN WATER FRONT restaurants, BUSINESS CONVENTION CENTRE AND OFFICES. CLEAN BED ROOM, BATH ROOM AND KITCHEN. Difficult to find parking space during the day, after 6 PM is not problem.
