Quite a charming Guesthouse with a lot of atmosphere, a wonderful victorian garden and individually formed rooms. There is given many valuable tips for restaurants and winetasting and is booked if requested directly by telephone. The short way in the old centre of Stellenbosch we have walked safely.

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights which exceeded our expectations. It is less than 10 min from the centre of Stellenbosch where you are spoilt for restaurant choices. The windows and doors are double glazed ensuring you have quiet stay. The garden is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The welcome and service while we were there was very... More

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.
