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. Definitely my go-go haven in Stellies!

Our first stop at this nice old and small guesthouse. The swimmingpool, although small was a welcome sight when we first arrived and after our rounds of golf. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with the restaurant reservations. Breakfast, although not a huge continental choice, was, as far as we were concerned, very nice. The guesthouse was within...

Rusthuis is a regular stopover on our annual SA trip, and we arrived on a Saturday for three nights.
