We spent two nights at Rutland House on our way to safari in Botswana and could not be more satisfied with the welcome and our accommodation. After an exhausting 13 hour plane trip from Australia our group of four enjoyed the warm ambiance of the home and Delia's efficient yet homely approach to her guests. On our last visit we... More

Driving through the secure gate into the courtyard was like entering a new and inviting world. Peace and tranquility in a bustling big city. A truly unique environment--we felt that we had just been transported to a lovely country cottage. Picturesque gardens, quaint rooms and suites (cottages). Total relaxation! The owner, Delia, is a gem of a person, friendly and... More

This place is great, but Delia makes it extra special. It seems that nothing is too much trouble for her and she manages to organise a lot of extra things whilst still doing the basics brilliantly. We hope to return- one day was too short

I stayed here with my 12 year old son for four nights on the first leg of a trip also taking in Zambia and Cape Town. We heard all sorts of horror stories about Joburg before travelling.
