On our recent holiday in South Africa we needed a place to spend the night while transiting from Johannesburg to Madikwe. After a great deal of research we decided on Rustenburg, a little over 2 hours west of Johannesburg.
The Rustenburg Boutique Hotel is just off of the main highway and in a fairly nice residential section of Rustenburg. The hotels exterior is modern and welcoming. We arrived later in the evening and had a reservation, so when we got out of the car and approached the gate, a very pleasant gentleman came out and greeted us by name.
The interior of the hotel was equally if not more modern, pleasant, and very well kept. The check in process was quick and easy. The gentleman checking us in was very helpful and provided us with numerous dining options nearby.
We had booked the family room which was immediately up the stairs from the front desk. The family bedroom had a king sized bed in one room, two twin beds in another, one bath, a living area and a fairly good sized kitchen. The decor was again, modern and well appointed. The couches were a bit uncomfortable and the cushions kept sliding off, but that did not make the room any less appealing.
Breakfast was included in our rate and the buffet was great. We had the normal fare one would expect to find at a breakfast buffet, plus eggs to order. The kitchen staff was equally as friendly and seemed to enjoy having guests in the hotel. I think that is the overall feeling at the hotel, you feel welcome.
The hotel is completely enclosed by a gated entry system, so your car and belongings are safe.
My only complaint is that the king sized bed was very, very hard. Had we spent more than one night, I am afraid my back wold have suffered.
There is no doubt that when we return to Rustenburg, The Rustenburg Boutique Hotel will be where we stay.
