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.

We had a very pleasant stay at Rutland lodge during our week in Cape Town. The staff and our hosts were always friendly and very helpful. It is a nice and quiet neighbourhood as well. So many thanks to Sonia and Thibault for making our stay so pleasant!

Classy and comfy act! Have visited this place 5 times over years and never was disappointed. Cape Town is one of those (few) cities where I'm happy to replace the traditional 5 star hotel by a premium guesthouse like Rutland Lodge. It's half the price, warmer welcome, excellent breakfast in the garden, and if you pick top floor room great... More

Rutland Lodge is situated on the upper levels of the city bowl with fantastic views of Table Bay and Lions Head. The location is an easy drive into the city and highways. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Sonia and Thibaut are warm hosts and Oscar, the house dog is also most welcoming. A delicious and healthy breakfast is... More

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.

We just returned from 11 fabulous days at the Rutland Lodge in Cape Town. 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

We spent a marvelous stay at Rutland Lodge where absolutely everything was fantastic. From the first glance, you feel well in this house. From mouldings at the ceiling to nice African furniture. Old stylish parquet eveywhere in the house. Sonia and Thibaut make you feel you are home from the first minute. In the morning, you get a tasteful breakfast... More
