About Us

Rose Lodge & 22 on Rose, are located in Rose Street and Wale Lodge is in Wale Street 5 minutes away. They are 3 small, cosy guesthouses located close to one another in the colorful historic Muslim “Malay Quarter”  known as the Bo-Kaap in Cape Town. It is only a 5 minute walk to the downtown area and the fashionable and trendy De Waterkant Village, and a short walking distance from the popular Victoria and Alfred Waterfront & Cape Town International Convention Center.

The rooms in these old “Malay” houses are not big, but they are all en-suite, with TVs, safes, air-conditioning, and heating. Coffee & tea facilities are available in the kitchens and 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 guesthouse and are dog friendly. A substantial continental self-serve buffet breakfast is provided. Our fridges are stocked daily with fresh orange juice, milk, yogurt, 2 kinds of bread, & eggs. Fresh fruit, three types of cereal, an assortment of jams and teas as well as fresh and instant coffee are also available.

English, German, and French are spoken.

Rose Lodge has been mentioned in THE LONELY PLANET, CAPE TOWN EDITION 2012 :

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. The cosy rooms (with private bathrooms) are all decorated in a contemporary style.

and in LE GUIDE DU ROUTARD  2012 :

Seulement neuf chambres doubles dans trois maisons tenues 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.
