About Rose Lodge

Rose Lodge and 22 on Rose are located in Rose Street, and Wale Lodge is five minutes away in Wale Street. They are three small, cosy guest houses located close to one another in the colorful and historic Malay Quarter known as the Bo-Kaap in Cape Town.

It is only a five-minute walk to the downtown area and the fashionable and trendy De Waterkant Village. The popular Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Cape Town International Convention Centre are also within a short walking distance.

The rooms in these old Malay houses are not big, but they are all en-suite, with TVs, safes, air-conditioning, and heating. Coffee and tea facilities are available in the kitchens as well as free WiFi in the communal areas. We provide a laundry service if required and can arrange your transfers or tours.

We are a non-smoking, dog-friendly guest house. A substantial continental breakfast is provided. English, German, and French are spoken on the premises.

Rose Lodge has been mentioned in the Lonely Planet, Cape Town 2009 edition:

"Inside a grey-painted corner house in the Bo-Kaap is this cute B&B. The Canadian owner likes to play the piano and has two adorable dogs. There are just three cosy rooms (with private bathrooms) all decorated in contemporary style."

It has also been mentioned in Le Guide Du Routard 2012 edition:

"Seulement trois chambres doubles dans une maison tenue par un accueillant Canadien. L'endroit idéal pour rester dans un quartier calme et coloré, à un jet de pierre de centre-ville. Sure, confortable, et en plus votre hote cause plutôt bien le francais. La déco est résolument contemporaine, dans les tons gris et blanc. On peut prendre son petit déj sur la mini-terrasse qui sur-plombe la rue. Parking."

We had a great time at Bruce's. Very friendly and helpful staff and owner (who speaks English, French and German). The rooms are beautiful and clean and the lodge is in walking distance to the city center and other (touristic) hot spots.

This beautifully restored Cape Malay house is located in a brilliant spot in Cape Town, close enough to the hustle and bustle to be in a good proximity (in many cases, a walking distance) to places of interest but out of the way enough to allow for a good night’s sleep.The rooms were clean, nicely designed to make the most of the space and very comfortable with an endearingly homely feel. All the amenities we needed were there. We were extremely pleased with our stay and Bruce (plus two extremely friendly pooches – Coco and Teddy) was a wonderful host. We would definitely recommend this charmi...
