Rusthuiz Guest House was perfect for our 2 day adventure in Stellenbosch. The staff was extremely helpful in all of our inquiries and requests. The home cooked breakfast and fresh fruit was delicious. We highly recommend Rusthuiz for your stay in Stellenbosch.

This facility was excellent. Attention to detail, excellent staff and great atmosphere made our stay there a pleasure. When my wife was unwell they looked after her above the call of duty. Good value too and very good breakfasts. Easy 5 minute walk to town. Despite winter cold, rooms are warm and fireplace in lounge very nice and cheerful.

We stayed only one night in April. We had a warm welcome by the team and a room on the first floor complete with balcony. The bedroom was well decorated and a good size.
