We stayed 3 nights at Rose Lodge and we really enjoyed our stay! We had a very good welcome from Edward. Spacious and modern room for 2, very well located in the Bo-Kaap neighborhood with many restaurants nearby (one must give a try to the cape malay food!).

My stay at Rose lodge was good above expectations; If anything, the listing understates what you get, especially considering price. An ample breakfast is served at Rose lodge. The whole lodge is neat, modern and in good order, and the rooms are very clean and well appointed. It is worth noting that you are staying in the Bo-Kaap, and the...

I am artist management agency and booked a room for two performers coming to Cape Town from Johannesburg. This was the first time we used Rose Lodge and the choice was convenience of the location.

Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable and would certainly stay there again should our travels take us to Cape Town again. The landlord went out of his way to help us and his staff were very good.

The lodge has several properties in the area. I stayed at 22 at Rose for 4 nights. The room was super clean and they prepared fresh dailies for breakfast. The location is walkable distance to/from town centre and Waterfront. The host has warm hospitality and he was so helpful. I will definitely stay this B&B again when I visit to...

Unfortunately guests do not always read what they are booking. This guest was told "A substantial self-serve continental breakfast is provided" which is what he got. We are sorry he thought it inconvenient to prepare it himself and don't understand why he claims there was NO breakfast. We are not a hotel with room service. The Hilton Hotel is just...

Firstly, it's not where you think it is. It's in a not so great part of town. The owner, an American, is more worried about payment than service. B&b fridge poorly stocked, breakfast dismal. In room tv only has sabc 1, sabc2 and etv. For the price I expect dstv! Would not book again!

These gentlemen were corporate guests who did not book the accommodation themselves. Often business people are not happy with what their companies have booked for them. We are a moderately priced guesthouse without DSTV which seems so important to some guests. We also have a continental breakfast which satisfies most of our guests but not all. Our fridges are stocked...

Thoroughly enjoyable stay at 'Orange' on Rose. Comfortable and delightful house in an excellent location and although we did not meet Teddy and Coco (cute dogs!) we had the good fortune to meet Bruce and the lovely Amanda. Useful information in the house - chose 2 of the recommended restaurants which, although very different, were both excellent.
