We always rely on TripAdvisor when booking and if somewhere does not meet expectations we go over past reviews to see if we got it wrong. The Rusthuiz just shows people have different judgements - not right or wrong just different. The staff are very enthusiastic and welcoming and maybe that is the most important. Indeed whilst we were there...

My husband and I returned to this guest house after having stayed here two years ago. The rooms are large and the position of the property is in good walking distance of Stellenbosch town center with secure parking. I would say that we stayed at more guest houses on this trip and found that Rusthuiz although friendly needed some tlc...

Unfortunately we only stayed here 1 night. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome and taken to one of the most impressive rooms I've ever stayed in. There's secure off street parking and only a short walk to local restaurants and bars. It's a good area and I felt very safe walking to the restaurant in the evening. The...

Within walking distance to the centre of Stellenbosch, this guesthouse offers nice rooms with comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. The people are very helpful. Disadvantage: Due to the fact, that the guesthouse is close to the centre at a busy road, you might feel disturbed by the noise. Without this problem I would rate it very good.

We had a great stay at Rusthuiz Guest House. After we checked in, the manager, who checked us in, met with us to see what we wanted to do in wine country. Based on what we told her that wanted to do, she arranged for a tour of Stellenbosch wineries for that afternoon and for a private driver for the...

Close to the centre of town, this comfortable accommodation is the ideal springboard to explore Stellenbosch by foot. The warm fireplace creates an inviting atmosphere to relax in the lounge and read. Breakfast is simple with cereals, cheeses and eggs.

The facility was neat and liveable. But definitely a disappointment in terms of the what we expected regarding the friendliness and welcoming of what a guest house should be.
