Very Good, clean lodge with a nice swimmingpool. Bit noisy due to outside traffic. Breakfast buffet could be expanded a bit. Friendly owner. Perfect for a stay in Cape Town. Helpfull staff and owner without being pushy. May select this lodge again.

Luxurious peaceful oasis. Friendly gracious hosts. Lovely breakfast; in sunny weather you can enjoy it on the patio while admiring the view of Table Mountain. Relax by the pool in summer. Good security. Highly recommended.

After a week in Joburg for work, my husband and I traveled to Cape Town for vacation. Our room was quite nice although the bathroom was down some narrow stairs which made me a little nervous in the middle of the night. The two resident dogs were a joy - entertaining us as we relaxed by the pool after a...

We are happy to have stayed at Rutland Lodge in January for 3 nights - the home is beautiful and located in a picture perfect suburb with views of the cable car to Table Mountain. Sonia and the team were always welcoming and friendly - willing to go the extra mile to make our stay extra pleasant.

The Rutland Lodge is a beautiful family home and the owners, Sonia and Thibaut, are very friendly and welcoming, My room was stylish and comfortable and the view from the terrace was stunning. A perfect place to relax and within easy reach of the city - I would definitely recommend staying here.

Hosts very friendly, balcony views very good, breakfast a bit basic but very good service. Only disadvantage was a street parking. Close to the centre of the city. Rooms a bit small for the pay price, but a very enjoyable experience overall and would go back.
