Wonderful lodge. Very kind and familiar atmosphere. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Everything was just perfect. The swimming pool area is very good for relaxing. Breakfast served with love. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Beautiful guesthouse a mere fifteen minute drive from the waterfront. Rooms were spacious and well decorated and ours had a nice balcony overlooking the city. Sonia was an extremely gracious host who was always ready to help arrange a day trip or handle any request you might have.

The lodge exceeded our expectations - our room was great with views across the city from the balcony or to Table Mountain and Lion's Head. The house is impeccably furnished, giving it an Old World feel. Sonia, her family, and the staff took care of any... More

No city does B&Bs quite like Cape Town. Over the years we have stayed at a number of wonderful ones. Rutland Lodge is an terrific example.
