It is a very nice lodge with an excellent location and view from balcony. We also enjoyed a fantastic breakfast as well. It was our first visit to Cape town, and we love the city. We will definitely come back. Jovanovic family.

My partner and I stayed at Rutland lodge for 10 nights and we had a wonderful experience. Firstly, our hosts Sonia and Thibaut were warm, open, friendly and approachable throughout our stay; it is their home as well as a business but they get the balance just right showing visibility and being on hand when you need something but giving...

Sonia and Thibaut have made the Rutland Lodge an inviting home for their guests. Whether sitting in the main room, on the porch, at the breakfast table, or on the patio you felt you were among friends and freely and easily engaged with hosts and guests in conversation. The lodge resides in a comfortable and safe neighborhood and provides spectacular... More

Bee & I stayed here during the second part of our Cape Town visit. Lovely friendly welcome from Sonia who was on hand to check us in assisted by Oscar the doggy (he's a little character!) The place is beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated throughout with attention to details often overlooked. Breakfast al fresco was a perfect way to start... More

My wife and I stayed at Rutland Lodge for 6 nights. Its location is ideal to visit Cape Town and the peninsula. Rutland Lodge is an historic Cape Dutch manor house decorated in a modern style with many lovely African touches. We enjoyed the large first floor terrace with amazing views over the city, Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Table... More

We liked it a lot to come back in the evening at the Rutland Lodge after a busy day in Capetown. The interior is well decorated in African style. We had a nice terrace with view on the harbour and the Table mountain. The bathroom was very like in the bush with a wall of boulders and a rainshower. In... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Rutland Lodge, Sonia and her husband welcome you to make you feel comfortable in their house, and are always trying their best to help you find a good restaurant in Cape Town and around. The rooms are very well decorated with a mixture of african and european style. The breakfast was delicious served... More

We loved this place, the neighborhood, the swimming pool, having breakfast in the garden, watching Oscar ( the dog) in search for muffins and enjoying the perfect view from the room. Compliments to Sonja and Thibaut and all the staff for the quality of services!

We spent there 5 nights and we were very happy of our choice. The house is well located with a wonderful view over Cape Town. We were very well welcomed by our hosts and the whole staff, always willing to help and assist in anything. We do recommend the place to stay in Cape Town.
