Rose Lodge is in a fantastic central location within day walking distance of the centre and a good location for driving out to Camps Bay for a sundowner. We stayed in 22 on Rose, which is just down the road. The room was spotlessly clean and had access onto a little courtyard, but as other reviewers have pointed out, the...

Location: Rose Lodge is located in Bo-Kaap, which itself is an attraction with its colourful houses. The B&B is in walking distance to the city centre (where you can catch the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus)...

Rose lodge is easily accesable. The room is clean with lovely white linen. Bed and pillows are comfortable. The staff were friendly and the room had everything i needed. I would definitely make use of them again.

Great space in a great location. In the heart of Bo Kaap with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. The space was clean/tidy and is more a B&B instead of a hotel as it was listed on the site. Housekeeper Daniel is extremely friendly and helpful!

Very nice Guest House. Very clean and organised.Staff is very friendly. We had a very good time in Cape. Good location. Not far away from the waterfront, Bo Kaap and city centre. You can leave your car in the street in front of the guest house.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Rose Lodge. The owner and all the stuff were super friendly and made us feel very much at home. Especially Daniel was amazing and he made the best eggs for breakfast!! Definitely recommended to stay here, in the colourful houses of Bo Kaap :)
