We used two different function areas for 4 days. First the set-up was good with decent connections and projectors. Then the refreshments were on time, a cut above the rest and properly set out. We had no noise flow-over from other rooms as our function rooms were separate from others. Some building was going on with noise but staff immediately... More

We attended a conference and as conferences go I wasn't looking forward much to our visit. I was pleasantly surprised! Unlike our last conference in Johannesburg, this time round we got booked into some really nice and comfy rooms. Everything was working, the rooms were clean and it was quiet. No Sandton traffic keeping us awake until dawn! I was... More

What a perfect place to entertain in luxurious yet informal surroundings. The committee and staff of the local golf club enjoyed Ruslamere's wonderful hospitality at their Captain’s Dinner recently. The venue was superb, the food excellent and the service outstanding. Thank you so very much.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Stay here next time you visit Cape Town. We had a lovely loft room with its own kitchen and lounge. We slept like babies and ordered breakfast in bed! There are great wineries within 5 minutes drive from the hotel.

I've stayed at Ruslamere a third time recently for our national conference. The owners have done a really great job to grow their guesthouse from a guesthouse to a big hotel without losing their identity. The new bistro and its covered area outside was wonderful with winter approaching and we enjoyed our lunches under the big old oak tree. The... More

My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and decided to stay at Ruslamere. It was the first time we stayed over within a 15km radius from home, but we were pleasantly surprised and got back feeling refreshed and totally relaxed. The new menu at their bistro is reason enough to stay the weekend! The check-in process was... More

The initial booking of the venue with the event organiser Ilanza was easy, the fact that she doesn't work there anymore is a big loss to the restaurant. When I got to the restaurant a 18 seated table was ready for me when I specifically requested the couch area, I had to wait for other guest to finish up before... More
