We stayed at Rusthuiz for one night in July 2016. What an stunning place.The room was big and in perfect condition. The breakfast was great and the service excellent. The warm water bottle in our bad after a night out in town was an really nice surprise. Really an great experience and will certainly visit again.

Room spacious and clean with pretty view over garden. Reception friendly and check-in handled efficiently and warm. Only criticism is the inconvenience of insufficient parking space. Quiet surroundings away from hussle and hussle of town Centre.

A lovely guest house on the banks of the Eerste river and direct across the university's winyards! Within walking distance of all the activities Stellenbosch has on offer. Spacious and lovely appointed rooms and en suite bathroom. Five star breakfast serving fresh fruit, continental and English breakfasts. Friendly staff and owners.
