Run by mother and son team Ursula and Michel Boutry, who know everything there is to know about Cape Town, Rogue on Rose is a charming hotel which offers just the right mix of modern luxury and character. Positioned in the vibrant neighbourhood of Bo-Kaap, where residents have painted their houses in an array of bright colours, the boutique hotel affords guests the chance to get a first-hand taste of Cape Town’s cultural appeal.

The tasteful white and red colour scheme fits nicely with the atmosphere of Bo-Kaap, and accommodation is luxurious and decorated to create a welcoming ambience.

All offering views over the neighbourhood and onwards to Signal Hill and Lion’s Head, the deluxe suites are spacious and equipped with air conditioning, heating, wireless internet, electronic safes, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, a range of international plugs and flatscreen televisions with DVD players. High speed wireless internet is a handy convenience, and any business that needs to be taken care of can be completed at the work desk. Fitted with high quality percale linen, the King-size beds are especially welcoming after a day’s sightseeing, and can be converted to twins if need be.

The spaciousness of the en-suite bathrooms, with their huge free-standing bathtubs and large walk-in showers, is impressive, and guests can slip into a luxury bath robe and slippers after freshening up.

A hearty breakfast is included in the rates for all guests, even those staying in the six generously sized self-catering suites, which each have a kitchenette with a microwave. A dining table and large lounge allow for comfortable private living, and two of the suites have a double sleeper couch that can accommodate an extra adult or two children, making them a good choice for families. The rooms are appointed with the same modern amenities as the deluxe suites, but the en-suite bathrooms have showers only.

The main purpose of Rogue on Rose is to provide a comfortable resting place for visitors who want to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Cape Town. Ursula and Michel have a true insider’s knowledge of the city, and can guide you to some hidden gems in Bo-Kaap and beyond. The mystical neighbourhood has some trendy bistros and heritage buildings, while a short walk will lead guests to the V&A Waterfront, art galleries, museums and top-rated restaurants. Attractions such as Table Mountain, Signal Hill, and the sparkling beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay are an easy drive away, as are the exceptionally beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the Constantia Wine Route. Your hosts will go out of their way to help you experience Cape Town just like the locals do, leaving you with a strong urge to return to this beautiful city.

Cape Town & Surrounds

Western Cape


Cape Town is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With dramatic mountains, a long stretch of Atlantic coastline and a picturesque working harbour, there are few cities in the world to rival “The Fairest Cape”, as explorer Sir Francis Drake described the place in 1580.

The city of Cape Town is regularly voted as one of the best tourist destinations (and cities to live in) in the world – and its Mediterranean climate, superb natural attractions, historic landmarks, fabulous restaurants and fun places to hang out offer all the ingredients for a top holiday destination.

Table Mountain dominates the city’s landscape and Table Mountain National Park is a national treasure and World Heritage Site.

The Cape Floristic Kingdom is known for its incredible botanical heritage and the Table Mountain National Park has more floral species than the British Isles. Stopping to smell the fynbos has an altogether new meaning in this part of the world.

Robben Island is another World Heritage Site worth visiting. Struggle heroes such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada and many others were incarcerated here during apartheid and taking the Robben Island Tour is a must on any trip to Cape Town.

The city is loosely divided by Table Mountain into four sections: Cape Town Central, Cape Town South, Cape Town North and Cape Town East.

Cape Town Central incorporates the city centre, the V&A Waterfront, Green Point, Mouille Point, Sea Point, Camps Bay and Hout Bay. There are loads of things on offer in this part of the world, so it’s a good idea to focus on the field of interest/activities that excite you and take it from there.

A trip to the top of Table Mountain is an absolute must (especially if you’ve never done it before). The views on a clear day will give you a clear perspective of the gorgeous city below and you can see as far as Robben Island and beyond.

If history is your thing, there are numerous museums and attractions close to the city centre. The Castle of Good Hope was built between 1666 and 1679 and is the oldest building in South Africa. It is a good place to start your tour of the city, which incorporates historic attractions such as the Bo-Kaap Museum, the District Six Museum, The Company’s Garden, City Hall and the Grand Parade, among many other notable historic attractions.

For shopping and entertainment, the V&A Waterfront is the epicentre of Cape Town and attracts high numbers of international tourists daily. Long Street is a good place to hang out for restaurants, bars and nightlife and Camps Bay is the place to see and be seen around cocktail hour.

The drive along Chapman’s Peak is one of the most scenic drives in the world but you need to do your homework as the route is periodically closed. Mariner’s Wharf in Hout Bay is another great place to visit, with its fun restaurants, great beaches and perfect views.

Cape Town South stretches from Noordhoek to Observatory and incorporates some of Cape Town’s most popular suburbs, including Constantia, Fish Hoek, Rondebosch, Simon’s Town and Muizenberg, to mention just a few.

Constantia is popular for its wonderful restaurants and wine estates and the Constantia Wine Route is a big attraction for foodies and wine-lovers. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens offers hectares of greenery and regular concerts in the warm summer months. There are also various hiking trails on offer.

Take a day trip to Simon’s Town and make sure you visit the statue of Just Nuisance, as well as the scenic Boulders Beach. Noordhoek is a great place for riding horses on the beach and the restaurants are very family friendly. For fresh fish and laid-back vibes, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg are the business. Fish Hoek is popular for seaside activities and antique shops and is a real favourite.

Cape Town North incorporates the Cape Town International Airport, Parow, Milnerton, Durbanville, Table View, as well as Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand. The north is a developed business centre that continues to grow rapidly. For chill-out time, Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand are popular for walks on the beach and outdoor sports.  Shoppers will enjoy Century City and Canal Walk, and for those who love a tipple or two, The Durbanville Wine Route also falls into the northern region.

Cape Town East is made up of Gordon’s Bay, Somerset West, Strand, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Eersterivier, Macassar and Strandfontein. The region is pretty spectacular as the small coastal towns sit below the imposing Hottentots Holland Mountains and there are fantastic beaches such as Bikini Beach, Strand Beach and Kogel Bay. Here you’ll also find the Helderberg Nature Reserve, Wolfgat Nature Reserve and Edith Stephens Wetland Park.

Look out for

Scenic Cape Point with its sheer cliffs, rugged landscapes, fauna, flora and bold ocean views.

A cable-car trip up Table Mountain to get the view of the incredible landscape of the city. If you’ve done the touristy cable-car thing then take one of the many mountain trails.

V&A Waterfront – spend time enjoying all the facilities at the V&A Waterfront, including the abundance of shopping and restaurant venues. For children, The Two Oceans Aquarium is a winner.

The magnificent beaches of Clifton, Muizenberg, Hout Bay, Bloubergstrand. You are spoilt for choice in and around the Mother City.

Historical sites are a must – including Robben Island, the Castle of Good Hope, the District Six Museum and Bo-Kaap.

Long Street by night. Enjoy the friendly fun vibes of this stretch of tarmac as it comes to life when the sun goes down.

While away the hours at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, the green lung of the city. Look out for the schedule of summer concerts.

Visit the Constantia Wine Route for a touch of history and some of the country’s finest wines and restaurants that continually make it onto the best-of lists.

Drive along the southern coastline and visit places such as Noordhoek, Scarborough, Simon’s Town, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg. Stop off at Kalk Bay for fresh fish at the harbour.
