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. It's a large villa in Oranjezicht on the slopes of Table Mountain built in 1904 with great views of the city and the sea. You get a warm and enthusiastic welcome, big comfortable rooms... More

Rutland lodge is a beauiful old house in the lovely quiet area of Oranjezicht. The rooms are comfortable, the living and dining areas full of character and the open fire place (lit day and night during winter) a delight. Our hostess, Sonia, was perfect in every way, and really helped make our stay very special. The house is in a... More

Our room was spacious and comfortable. From our balcony we had a view of the bay with the famous Waterfront as well as of the Table Mountain. Our hostess Sonia... More

It's a short drive into the city, even shorter to Camps Bay and Table Mountain is practically next door. The Cape Dutch style house is comfortable, full of character and all the rooms are extremely... More
