We stayed 3 nights in the Rose Lodge. The room was small but big enough for a city trip. Some restaurants can be reached by food within one block. Parking is right in front of the B&B.

Amazingly comfortable. Just perfectly cozy. Somehow feels like a French home in the middle of Cape Town. The owners are the sweetest people. The rooms are clean and on point. Perfect colors. Visitors have to check out the roof top section. I would recommend to anyone, at anytime!

Wale Lodge is a lovely house in a beautiful part of town - staying in one of the houses everyone else takes pictures of. Excellent service, a friendly and helpful crew, everything spotlessly clean and well equipped for a short break or longer stay. Highly recommended.

Bruce and his team are wonderful. They sent a taxi to the airport to pick us up and welcome us although it was quite late. Bruce gave us useful information for visiting the area. The house is very well located at walking distance from restaurants and down town points of interest. Rooms are well decorated and convenient although the one...
