Rusthuis is a regular stopover on our annual SA trip, and we arrived on a Saturday for three nights. I had managed to forget to book in time, and we had had to upgrade ourselves to a higher room grade, with a balcony overlooking the pretty garden. The room was well furnished, with a large bathroom (rather than just a... More

We spent 3 nights in this attractive and renovated house which is a 10 minute walk into town. Parking is tightly packed but available within the gated grounds. Our room was extremely spacious although the lighting in the bathroom was poor. We did not have occasion to use the small pool, the garden was lovely, the breakfast was rather skimpy... More

Best reviews to Binnenhof at 2 Rynevleld Street! A really interesting menue that covers a lot of tastes - the burger fans get their deal, the pasta lovers theirs, and then - the zebra, ostrich, and whatever wild game that is not protected, AND the Xhosa kitchen, which proved to be tasty, not overspiced, and - acuallty with some modifications,...

From the moment we booked Hannelise went out of her way to make our stay memorable. When we arrived she was friendly and welcoming and made sure we felt at home. I had emailed her a couple of days before asking for her advice on booking a wine tour, she promptly responded with recommendations and then arranged it all and... More

Would definitely recommend to anyone. We travelled with a baby, which they accommodated kindly by organising a camping cot. It was also an added bonus that our room was massive. Hannelize and Manthea's service was excellent. They were sincerely friendly and helpful. Walking distance from town and easy to get to the R44. Parking is a bit tight, but they... More

We have had a perfect time there at Rusthiuz Guest House. The Personal was so friendly and helpful. What can we wish more? Perfect Breakfast. And it is near the city. We can also say, that the Restaurant "Helena´s" in the near is peerfect. Best thanks, I will say to my childrens, that they must come one day to there.

We stayed here 2 nights. Probably one of the nicest B&B's we stayed in. Really nice decorated, large room, new and huge bathroom, ... In the room there's a mini bar with some refreshments in it, water, chips & nuts, wine, ... at a democratic price. This helped us getting started without immediately having to go to a shop. The...

We enjoyed our stay here and found walking into Stellenbosch very safe and easy. We were upgraded to a lovely large room and had a bath and a shower. The breakfast was very nice with a good selection of food. They do have a pool but the weather was not good enough to use it. The staff are helpful and... More

Within walking distance of Stellenbosch's city center this guest house is close to most of the attractions within the town, yet far enough to give you that relaxed environment away from the hustle-and-bustle. They have all the modern amenities you would want and most of their rooms are big enough to fit in an extra bed or two if you... More
