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

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.

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
