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...

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...

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...

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...

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

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.

Stayed here 6-9 April. The accommodation is relatively simple but charming, clean and well kept. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and air con available. Breakfast included toast, cereals, filter coffee, muffins, boiled egg, oj.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Rose Lodge. I am a middle aged South African Woman and was spending the weekend alone in Cape Town and due to the fact that I had no transport, I opted to stay in the city - close to all the attractions. I loved the atmosphere in the Bo-Kaap area and really enjoyed experiencing...

So easy to get everywhere, in the heart of the bokaap district. Bruce and his friendly team deliver a product that is great value. Coco and Teddy, Bruce's two adorable dogs, are often around to greet you and make you feel at home. I always sleep well on the comfortable beds, and feel safe and secure. I enjoy the modern...

A nice clean and well managed establishment. Enjoyed our stay although a bit worried about parking your vehicle overnight which is on the street. Although the lodge provides coffees and teas,bread, muffins, cereals and fruits,it can do a bit more on providing some hot goodies as you can only have boiled eggs.

Dear Logan, Thank you for taking the time to review our guesthouse. In order to give our guests a reasonably priced accommodation, we do not do cooked breakfasts. That would cost quite a bit more to employ a cook. Unfortunately you will have to go somewhere else and pay more for that luxury. Luckily most of our guests realize what...
