Our first visit and we booked 4 nights in Feb. Lots of staff, beautiful gardens and stoop. Bedroom was excellent with lots of storage given the volume of luggage that we take on H.

Dear Jenny Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Rusthuiz. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay.

We returned to Rusthuiz one year on, to our same room, leading onto the garden and delightful pool area. Proper pool loungers, with decent cushions - excellent! Ruisthouse rooms are either large or very large, and are well equipped, with comfy beds and good bedding (duvets). Downside (minor) is that most rooms have singles, not king beds. Bathrooms are clean...
