We are a family of 4 and have recently returned from a most fantastic trip to Jo'Burg, RSA. We were lucky enough to stay at Rutland House B&B where we were made so welcome. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with all mod cons, and the gardens were a picture with the most charming swimming pool which looked so inviting,... More

Rutland House is a quiet haven with lovely rooms and wonderful personal service. I first stayed there several years ago, and had forgotten how charming it is. My recent visit more than lived up to my expectations. The gardens are beautiful and the whole place is relaxing and welcoming. Delia was very friendly and helpful and organised trips for me,...

I stayed at Rutland House several times over the years, up until last year. I am now planning another trip to Jo'burg, but will stay somewhere else. In spite of the good reviews on Tripadvisor, I have watched the accommodations at Rutland House slowly become more and more worn out each time I visit, and the bathrooms are 1980s style.... More

Thank you so much for your honest review. I completely agree with you that 2 of the bathrooms needed upgrading. 1 has been done already and we are busy with the next as I write. Every year I budget approximately R1000,00.00 for upgrading and maintenance. Last year it was trees, garden, TV's and beds. Next year it is replacing carpets... More

From the moment we arrived from our overnight flight from Singapore we really loved staying at Rutland House and Delia is such a good hostess, somehow finding time to chat and fill us in. The property is most attractive and well looked after and is in a very secure and safe area. Delia also organises safe collection and delivery to... More

Rutland House was recommended to me as being in the vicinity of the conference centre where I was to attend a scientific conference. It is situated in a quiet upmarket residential area with safe parking. The Duck suite was extremely well appointed, consisting of an attractive bedroom with all B&B amenities and a spacious and clean en-suite bathroom. I was... More

Thank you Piet, for your lovely review. I enjoyed chatting to you whilst I cooked your breakfast and I am pleased I was able to save you from the very early morning traffic from Pretoria. I hope to see you again in the near future when you are next lecturing at Hacklebrooke Conference Centre just around the corner from me. More

We have just come back from a great weekend in Joburg. We needed a B&B close to Sandton, Athol and Wanderer's Club (for a friend's 40th) and were lucky enough to find Rutland House - central, safe and perfect for our needs. We stayed in the SKY suite and it was beautifully appointed with all the nice "touches" like tea,... More

We stayed at the Cottage in Rutland house for a month. The cottage is positioned ideally to afford privacy and security. Delia was very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. The cottage was cleaned daily and the staff were friendly and courteous. An ideal place for a family looking for accommodation for a long stay.
