Wale Lodge is a lovely house in a beautiful part of town - staying in one of the houses everyone else takes pictures of. Excellent service, a friendly and helpful crew, everything spotlessly clean and well equipped for a short break or longer stay. Highly recommended.

This was a great spot in Cape Town. The staff were helpful. The rooms were small but perfect. It was close to everything we needed. Bruce and his dogs were wonderful. I think the value for the money was wonderful.

Bruce and his team are wonderful. They sent a taxi to the airport to pick us up and welcome us although it was quite late. Bruce gave us useful information for visiting the area. The house is very well located at walking distance from restaurants and down town points of interest. Rooms are well decorated and convenient although the one... More

This is s very cute, well-maintained property in the City Center area- a less touristy more multi-cultural area not far from the Waterfront. The rooms are nicely decorated and the breakfast was substantial with fresh-made eggs. The property is very secure and I always felt safe walking around or in my room even though I was by myself. There are... More

Great place in a great area. Owners are friendly and helpful. Rooms are very small but quaint in a Bo Kaap sort of way. Breakfast is excellent, amazing muffins. Everything in Cape Town is in easy reach though we had a car. Rooftop terrace is pretty bare and could use some nice furniture but the view is spectacular

I spent 5 great days in Wale lodge, clean room, spotless kitchen, great breakfast, nice welcome. Can be slightly noisy when people are talking in the shared area, although it... More

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
