Rosedene Lodge


Rosedene Lodge opened in 2001, still owner-managed by Michael; currently our team consists of Tichaona, Naomi & Samantha. With only six rooms in total, our guests enjoy individual attention and an intimate and comfortably spacious environment in which to relax. We are now a well-established guesthouse and proud of our many loyal return guests.

Set around tranquil courtyards, terraces and cool, sparkling pool waters, our lodge offers respite from the sights and sounds of the Mother City – a perfect refuge for those who love to combine home comforts in style with the luxury of personal service and that extra special touch.



Breakfast is served until 12am, usually in our garden under the shade of vine (weather permitting) or in our Art Deco lounge. Start your day with a healthy fruit salad, a choice of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, exquisite cheeses, ham and cold meats and a selection of fresh rolls & croissants. Hot breakfasts are made fresh to order.

Once breakfast is done, you’ll be ready to explore the city, or if you feel like it, just relax by the pool or on your private terrace with a book or your ipod. Enjoy sundowners and snacks in the afternoon and have a refreshing splash in the solar heated pool before going out to explore Cape Town’s vibrant nightlife – or reward yourself with an early night and unwind in the peace and tranquility of Rosedene Lodge.

Dear Rosedene Lodge team; Thank you for a fantastic week, we have thoroughly enjoyed staying here, the service, the hospitality and the kindness of all made our trip perfect. We will miss you all (plus the gorgeous swimming pool).
