Rutland Lodge was a great and quiet place to stay. The location is Super. We loved the old charm of this House and the host was very helpful. Breakfast was super and service Excellent. The only thing we disliked was the open Bathroom. Altogether we were very happy with everything.

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.

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.

What a lovely hosting family and what a beautiful lodge! Breakfast is delicious and the rooms are fancy and well furnished with typical African decor. House is safely layed in a villa area but close to the center and the family has lots of good advises for delicious restaurants and places to visit. We enjoyed our stay at the lodge...
