What a beautiful place to stay! Ursula and Michel were amazing hosts, and nothing was ever too difficult for them. We were there on our honeymoon and Ursula helped us book restaurants and advised of places to visit before we even arrived! Breakfast is wonderful, a small but lovely menu.

We had a nIce large room, very well equipped including a Nespresso machine! Excellent breakfasts. Casual but efficient atmosphere. Ursula and Michel, the owners, were very approachable and helpful.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay here...and sadly the only thing you were not happy with is something we are not able to change but hoping it will be a thing of the past shortly....the municipality has confirmed that our area should have fibre in about 4 months....and that intimitant problem will hopefully be a thing of the past....

Rouge on Rose is a lovely boutique hotel, designed and built by the owners, Ursula and Michel. It is in Bo Kaap, a charming area with candy-colored houses. The rooms are spacious with elegant furnishings and a small kitchenette. Breakfast is served in a dining room off the small entrance lobby. It was excellent, especially the stuffed french toast. Yum!...

This is a small boutique hotel, 5 mins walk from city centre attractions, bars and restaurant. Rooms are lovely individual suites and the breakfast is fantastic.
