Nice people to welcome you. Original catering, and nice breakfast. The room is charming, clean, but the bathroom is too small. The lodge is very well located. There is no private parking, but it's easy to find some place in the street.

Bruce, the other staff members and Coco & Teddy and are so welcoming in this cute B&B in Cape Town. The breakfast is delicious. The room is comfortable and clean with a nice bathroom with great shower. We had the courtyard room which is a nice little extra outdoor space. Great stay in Cape Town. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great time staying at the rose lodge, Bruce was very welcoming. The room was very clean and stylishly decorated. The breakfast was delicious (especially the croissant and muffins). The location is perfect, walking distance to the center. We strongly recommend this place.

I had a great time at Rose Lodge. It is situated very close to the center of Cape Town and the Table Mountain National Park. The room was spacious and very clean. I will definitely stay this B&B again when I visit to Cape Town. I strongly recommend.

We stayed 10 nights in 22 on Rose, upstairs. Great clean room with roof terrace, the breakfast selfserved in the kitchen was great, we could eat it whenever we wanted. The staff is very friendly and we lent a mobilephone in case of emergency/taxi/Bruce etc. Location is great, 20 min to Waterfront, 10 min to city. Will absolutely be back...

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...
