Nice and clean bb ! Room is relatively small but clean , limited tv channels . The room is very close to the kitchen / breafast area which makes it noisy in the early morning ! Breakfast is simple but nice . The reception is nice and friendly Just perfect for one night

I loved staying at Rose Lodge. Not only the ensuite room is modern, beautifully decorated and comfortable but the owner (Bruce) is the best landlord EVER!!! He makes you feel at home from the very beginning of your stay, gives you tips and is always there for you for whatever you may need. I also highly recommend this accommodation for... More

My day was good, when I had the chance to call at nine and check in at 9:30 Rose Lodge, one of the colourful houses I normally only take photo's from. The location in A1*. The rooms are small, neat and very clean. There is all you need to discover Cape Town: a comfortable bed, modern bathroom, enough space for... More

We stayed in Rose Lodge for a few nights. The location is excellent in the heart of Bo Kaap, a 10 minute walk to Long st, close to restaurants and bars. Bruce (who runs the guesthouse) and his staff are very helpful. Providing directions, suggestions of things to do and how to navigate the local buses if like us you... More

Very charming B&B just a minute or two from Cape Town's main shopping streets. The lovely host, Bruce, made me breakfast each morning and gave me valuable tips on what to do in Cape Town. I stayed for five nights on a business trip, but this would also be the perfect place for a couple on vacation. It was very... More

We've spent three nights at the Rose Lodge. We loved the location (near many popular streets and away from the modern waterfront chain stores) and the cleanness of the place. Unless if you want to make up early, I'd suggest to bring earplugs as the Lodge is located not far from a beautiful and ancient mosque. Lovely neighborhood. Helpful and... More

The lodge is located in one of the typical Bo-Kap houses. Rooms small but clean/neat. Breakfast was rich, Service and hospitality by Owner (Bruce) just great. All key places in walking distance (Green market, Water front). Very different to CPT no-frill hotels. Highly recommended.

Yoann and his wife are such lovely, helping people. We had a great 3 days stay. Location in Bokaap is so central and safe. Breakfast is very good, with fresh muffins, fresh bread, the room is big. If I go back to Cape Town I will stay for sure again here.

Superb place with very helpful staff. Daniel gave us a very warm welcome and helped us with all our luggage. We were travelling with our baby boy of 8 month and a cot was provided. The room was very clean and in the morning we were spoiled with a great breakfast. Definitely worth coming back!
