“A Wonderful Place”
Reviewed November 21, 2006

I was travelling the Western Cape for 4 weeks and during that time I stayed at Rutland Lodge for the final 5 nights of my stay in South Africa - the best way to finish a fabulous vacation. The guest house was amazing in every respect - service, rooms, location, etc.

I live and work in Cape Town so it might seem quite bizarre why I checked into a hotel in my own town. The reason being my boyfriend who lives and works in London came home for a surprise 5 day visit so we wanted a special romanatic get away without travelling too far. We searched the net and among hundereds of nice looking guest houses Rutland Lodge came up. We stayed 2 nights and it was wonderful - the setting, the house, the breakfasts, the people - Everything was just perferct.
It was a little more than we wanted to pay - but definitely worth it.

Stayed November 2006

I have just spent my first two days at Rutland Lodge Boutique Hotel in Cape Town.

Fantastic attentive service. Great rooms, with deigner - style decoration. Designer bathroom, top quality soaps etc... & Free Wi-Fi!

Great attention from Janet and John whilst booking the room.

Fantastic breakfast, freshly cooked by Ross.

I am here on business, however the hotel would be well suited to romantic couples as well.

I found the hotel after trying "22" on trip advisor and as they were full they recommended Rutland Lodge over the road.

I couldn't be happier.
