Great service from Ruthuiz Guest House in Stellenbosch. Conveniently located close to restaurants within walking distance. Or use Uber or car to shops close by. A few roads were having road repairs which caused a few delays during peak time.

Our travel agency booked this quest house for us. Location is fine. 10 minutes, 600 m walking distance from the Dorp street of Stellenbosch. Breakfast is fresh but easy and some more choices could be added like different kind of bread, spreads on the bread and drinks. When we arrived the receptionist gave our keys, hardly no explanation what time is breakfast etc. Cold rooms (during the day it is 16 degrees now) and in the house it is also chilly cold. You have to wear your coat. I have been sitting at the veranda for 2 hours, no one asked me to have a tea or something. Did not meet or see the owners. Did not feel as a warm welcome. Rooms are tidy and clean. Parking space is small! We won’t come back, unfortunately 🤗

We liked this B&B where we stayed 4 nights very much. The room was spacious although it was not clear why we had two single beds. The walls are rather thin, but we heard no outside noises as the windows were double-glazed. Breakfast was good, but what er appreciated most of all was the great service given in arranging wine-tastings and making reservations for diner etc. Also the laundry service was good and quick. We can certainly recommend this guesthouse.
