Rusthuiz was the perfect, comfortable, friendly, and luxurious base for my wife and I as we spent the week exploring the countryside of Stellenbosch and surrounds. Our week away was a "Baby Moon" that was designed to pamper my wife and allow us quality time before baby comes. The luxurious suite was awesome, super comfortable and everything we needed. The central location was useful for walking to and from Stellenbosch's historic town centre.

We only stayed there for two nights, but it was a very lovely time. The guesthouse is very warm and friendly. Due to our schedule, we didnt interact with the staff all that much, but they were gracious to pack us breakfast upon our very early departure and on a rainy day, they let us borrow umbrellas. The house is on the main road, but you cant hear any noise and you really do feel secluded. All in all a very nice place to stay.

Strategically located guesthouse with good facilities and clean. The staff was mostly helpful (one lady very active, the other passive rather). It is very cozy, the breakfast excellent. From the guesthouse you walk in a few minutes to the center of Stellenbosch. The street along the guesthouse does produce some noise but not too bad. The worst came from the sounds of music in the guesthouse self. The whole day the same wallpaper music (same tune even), annoying. Further we had an air conditioner just above the bed and that's not fine. But otherwise a very nice place!

We have stayed here many times and it's always a delight. The staff are very attentive, rooms lovely, pool welcoming on a hot day. My husband has celebrated his b'day here three times and has always been made a great fuss of with ALL the staff singing Happy Birthday as he blows out his candles!! Just about to book for 2014. We stay towards the start of our holiday and then again on our way back to Cape Town towards the end. Perfect, as we walk into town in the evenings - about 7 mins - and back again as it's so safe.

Room Tip: There isn't a spa, but I can't delete my 'excellent'!!!

We had two nights here along our garden tour holiday and it was just lovely.
The welcome was warm and friendly and the hosts were very heplful in giving directions and advice.
Our room wasn't one of the balcony rooms but it was very nicely furnished and big, having a separate dressing room and bathroom. The bed was big and comfortable with lovely quality bedding.
Breakfast was nice with a buffet plus cooked options and it was nice to eat on the verandah out front.
It is on a main road but set back behind a wall and trees so you don't really notice the traffic.
It's only a 10 minute walk into town where there are loads of restaurants to choose from and quite safe to walk back to at night.
A great place to stay in Stellenbosch.
