Highly recommend

We stayed here on our honeymoon and fell in love with the place. Beautiful rooms and pool, great service and a homely touch. The short walk into town means it is nice and quiet too. We would stay again! Sammy- Perth, Australia

Nice oasis in the Cape

The staff at Rusthuiz are excellent. This is a lovely guesthouse with a nice breakfast and is a nice 10 minute or so walk from 'downtown' Stellenbosch. Hannelise and Nicholaus helped us organize our four day trip there with a wine tour and arranged a driver for us to go and be picked up for a wedding. A small accounting error was detected two days after our trip and Hannelise immediately emailed us to issue a refund. Very helpful and great place to stay.

Lovely guest house çlose to town centre

Posted Feb 17, 2017
Guest house is walking distance to Church street, with lots cafes and shops. We had a very clean, large, comfortable room overlooking the garden. Great breakfast. Nice pool, pretty garden. Comfortable guest lounge. Only criticism - mattresses a bit too firm.

Quality accommodation, central location

Posted Feb 17, 2016
Pros: Comfortable room Excellent breakfast Outside garden and pool area Proximity to central Stellenbosch
Cons: Limited car parking is available
Location: Stellenbosch is a lively university town with good shopping and eateries. Try the Town walking tour (11.00am), botanical garden and Babylonsteren.
Stayed here for 3 nights to explore Stellenbosch and surrounding area. Location is great for tripping in and out of downtown Stellenbosch. Our room (7) was large and extremely well equipped as is the public lounge area. Outside the garden is beautifully maintained and the outdoor pool area, although small, is very welcome. Breakfast, served on either the terrace or dining room, is excellent.
