I've stayed at the 1st floor in a very nice room with great Cape Town/Lion Mountain view from wide wood-floor terrace. Room is nicely decorated in African style. Location is pretty close to hiking trails up to Table Mountain or simple walking to the city center (20-30 min or 5-10 min by car). Continental type breakfast served within a bit narrow time range (from 08:00 till 09:30 am) but the quality is excellent and you can get early breakfast if needed!

Very good place to stay while exploring Cape Town. Beautiful house, perfect location (close to Table Mountain, just a 10 minute easy drive to Waterfront), great breakfast! We had our last days in SA and we felt very lucky to stay in this guesthouse. Great breakfast!

Centrally placed for easy access to all areas of Cape Town, but in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood. The lodge has a lovely ambience and our rooms were most comfortable. The friendly proprietor,Jean-Jo was welcoming and helpful and the staff unobtrusive, but efficient.

Nice clean house, good location and a very gracious host. He gave us an excellent insight into the town and things to do. Fantastic! The only downside was the hot water as it did not run properly, it would run out very quickly... its winter time =) Great job overall!

Rutland Lodge is in a great location as long as you have a car. It feels quite a safe area but secure parking is provided. It's a short drive into the city, even shorter to Camps Bay and Table Mountain is practically next door. The Cape Dutch style house is comfortable, full of character and all the rooms are extremely spacious. There are stunning views of the city in one direction and Table Mountain in the other.

Great place to stay. Room very comfortable and spacious with a nice view either on the table mountain or downtown. Great design, very nice welcome from the owner who give us good ideas to start our visit of the city. We will definitely go back and we recommand this place to everybody who wants to visit Cape Town.
