Rusthuiz Guesthouse was the 1st stop on our 2.5 week tour through South Africa and out of all the places we stayed I think it was the best!
The staff was super friendly and helpful, rooms & bed nice, the location was great and I also really enjoyed the breakfast. It is a small but personal guesthouse. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed for 2 nights I wish it was longer .Rusthuiz guest house is in an excellent position only 5 minutes from the centre room was fine gardens and pool lovely and breakfast excellent. We were recommended a wine tour in a tuk tuk which was great fun and went to a great restaurant in dorf street . The Owners were lovely and friendly and I will defiantly recommend you to all my friends
Finally nice extra thought were the pool towels in a beach bag in the wardrobe for guests to use !

Room Tip: Our room was a little dark pay extra and get a balcony

We stayed for one night in a room with a balcony over looking the garden. The house is furnished nicely with period furniture in the lounge and dining areas giving it real character.The welcome we received from manager Lynette was very friendly , informative and professional. The pot of tea and coffee was a lovely touch over looking the beautiful garden.Lynette ofered to make bookings for us which was very kind.
Breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice and cooked options too, all served outside , beautiful.
Stellenbosch itself is a 5 minute walk and a lovely stylish town with lots of nice shops , cafés etc.
Dinner at the Big Easy was excellent and good value, lovely interior etc.We walked to it within about 4 minutes and felt perfectly safe.
Lynette offered to make bookings for us and there was information about tours, restaurants etc which was really helpful.Great value for money and a lovely place to stay.

We were two couples and we stayed for 4 nights and it could not have been better, we had lovely rooms, great breakfasts and many tips on how to enjoy Stellenbosch. Try Ernie Els' restaurant the 'Big Easy' for super food and wine at prices we can only dream of in the UK. Many Thanks to all the team who made our stay so enjoyable.

Quite a charming Guesthouse with a lot of atmosphere, a wonderful victorian garden and individually formed rooms. There is given many valuable tips for restaurants and winetasting and is booked if requested directly by telephone. The short way in the old centre of Stellenbosch we have walked safely. Afterwards we could relaxing in the comfortable sitting room of the house with a tasty sherry. We could enjoy breakfast in a sunny morning on the patio. Good service!
