Great venue for a fabulous Christmas party that can accommodate a large number of people. It works really well with 3-4 different reception areas. The catering was average, the service good.

Built in the late twenties in the colonial (of course) style as the home of the Rhodes Trust, many notable scholars have passed through these doors. Einstein gave three lectures here.

I went for a wedding this September. The building is incredible and a very subtle mix of styles. The gardens are lovely and we'll planted. Catering was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Recommended.

Lovely historic building with amazing mural on the ceiling. Well worth a detour to see this. The same Rhodes who funded the Rhodes Scholarships was the person who provided the funds for this. Its a wonderful example of work of the period.

Chalked for of more modern history. Historians say it is the place where Albert Einstein first lectured on this theory of relativity. The House has three main rooms in it and gives one a reminder of the value of leaving a legacy.

Rhodes house is a venue that is reserved for meetings, weddings and gatherings. I don't think they offer night stays.
