Rutland Lodge is in a quiet residential part of town, a short walk or taxi to a good selection of restaurants and shops. The room we had (#2) was on the ground floor without views, but with easy access to the pool and downstairs verandah. Quite dark but very comfortable. The air conditioning was I understand quite noisy for other... More

My family and I (three generations) booked four rooms at Rutland Lodge for our week-long stay in Cape Town. While it's not exactly central (ie within walking distance to the waterfront) it was absolutely perfect for our family's needs. Sonia and Thibault were very welcoming and available to answer all our questions and quick to help us with all logistics.... More

Very polite and helpful English and French speaking hosts. B&B only but recommended restaurants and tourist destinations without prompting, all of which were high quality. Booked taxis, providing maps or brochures when needed. Wifi useful. Located away from the centre up a hill in a residential area. Felt safe and secure, with 2 guard dogs. Room had enough space and...

This was a lovely lodge with friendly relaxed atmosphere and large airy room. The owners were very helpful, offering to book us taxis from a local trustworthy firm. They also arranged our pick up from the airport.

Stayed at Rutland for 4 nights this August; two adults ans two full-grown teenagers. Rutland felt like a family house to us with furniture and art gathered from all over Africa by the owners that give it a distinct personality. No Ikea here. We had two spacious and comfortable rooms and the view from the balcony must be one of... More
