Rose Lodge provided excellent value for money in terms of location, room quality and overall comfort. The home baked breakfasts (muffins, pastries etc) were excellent and it felt like a 'boutique' home from home. Bruce and the team were so, so helpful both before and during my stay. I'd thoroughly recommend staying here and would definitely stay again. Helen, London,...

Our rooms were located in ORANGE Lodge, just beside house ROSE Lodge. We learnt that the rooms are QUITE different in cleanliness and equipment. Next time we would book again ROSE or ORANGE Lodge, but early with exakt room-wishes.

Bo-Kaap is a cool place to stay. Our lodge, Wale Lodge, had three rooms and a self service kitchen. Close to the city bowl. Small colorful houses surrounded our street. Nice room and helpful staff. We were very excited about staying here.
