Really enjoyed our first stop in SA, booked online from Australia and very happy with the location, spacious well appointed room, friendly service and great breakfasts. Would have extended but they were booked out. The Bounty family are exceptional hosts.

A great pace to stay inthe Bo Kapp area of South Africa with its pretty coloured houses. Rouge on Rose was a great pkce for us to base ourselves for three nights in Cape Town. From the moment that we stepped into Rose on Rouge it was evident that the owners and staff were both friendly, helpful and genuine. Both Ursula and Michelhelped us enjoy our stay by suggesting places to eat, helping us book tables, phoning taxis etc.
they were more than accommodating when we asked for a late check out due to illness.

The room we had (201) was very nicely furnished and looked after. The beautifully presented and tasty breakfast was a great way to start the day.

Thanks to all everyone at Rouge on Rose for helping make this stay superb!

This is a true gem in central Cape Town. A great location for the Waterfront area (I recommend taking a cab as walking is not easy). Lots of local restaurants you can walk to though, including the Royal Eatery on Long Street. They make any kind of burger you can think of (I highly recommend reservations unless you go early). Our room was a king with lots of space and a kitchen. The shower was very creative and open to the room, so if you're shy you should get over it!!! The staff was wonderful and super helpful. I still think about the breakfasts....AMAZING!!
Thanks to everyone there for making our last days in South Africa so wonderful. We'll be back!

This hotel has a great and friendly staff, very nice and spacious rooms, tasty breakfast and excellent location. So I can really recommend this to anyone who wants to stay close to the center of Cape Town center still not being stucked in a high-rise building.

Stayed for four nights with some friends and we all loved it. The location is perfect, the rooms are amazing, and the owners/staff are incredibly helpful and nice. They really went out of their way to make our stay fun and comfortable.

You can not have better accommodation in Capetown!! Rooms are very modern and stylish, yet cozy. The hosts are resourceful, caring and made us feel like we are a part of the family and so was the rest the of the staff!! Brilliant breakfast, too! What can I say more?? If you have the possibility, go yourself and see, you will not regret it!! The Rouge on Rose for us: Pure Bliss!!!!
