First and foremost, everyone was very hospitable and accommodating. Rutland house is situated in a nice, safe, quiet neighborhood. However, there isn't a whole lot within walking distance so you'll need to plan to either have a car or call cabs/Uber if you want to venture out.

Our room was right off the driveway and was relatively basic. It was comfortable enough, clean, and had a lot of space. However, it wasn't modern or updated and was really cold.

Sara and Greta were very nice and made us lovely breakfasts each morning. The owner was actually away on holiday during our stay but her friend Colleen ensured we had everything we needed and were comfortable.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled as a couple

Thank you for your review and your kind comments. You were here in a really cold snap and all the rooms have heaters and electric blankets so you should have only felt cold when you were outside. You are correct to state that Rutland House is not modern and sophisticated - this is not what we are about. The rooms are hardly basic as they offer far more than the average hotel suite with several choices of teas and coffees, fresh fruit bowls and fresh milk in the fridge along with healthy rusks (biscuits). Previous guests on Tripadvisor have mentioned that everything has been thought of to make your stay special. We are in the quiet, tree filled suburbs which is stated on all the web sites where we advertise. This is not a hotel but a private home where guests are welcomed to share the cottages and en suite bedrooms which are set away from the main house with their own private entrances and patios or garden. I do agree that it is better to have a car or use a cab as we are not in a shopping mall however these are easily organized for our guests as many do not want to self drive. Tours and transfers are easily arranged if we are alerted in advance. I wish you all the very best and I am sorry I did not get to meet you. Delia (Owner)

Very quiet, comfortable and welcoming guest house in the bustle of Jozi... the host Delia went out of her way to make our short stay hassle free... highly recommended, especially if you are looking for a safe and friendly alternative to the big hotels :-)

The owner - Delia - makes this place super special. Rutland House is a quiet oasis in a big city. Each of the bedrooms is special, and separated from the main house. She cooks a great breakfast, and is eager to share her insights into Johannesburg and South Africa.

As a Capetonian I often do the commute to Johannesburg to meet with clients. Rutland House is my is always my preferred place to stay over. Its situated in a beautiful leafy suburb that is safe and conveniently situated. Rooms and spacious and WiFi is reliable to catch up on emails. The owner (Delia) and staff are always welcoming and friendly.

Room Tip: accessible, quiet, safe,

I can highly recommend the Rutland House B&B in Craighall, Johannesburg, where I recently spent two nights - The gardens are beautiful,the accommodation is excellent, charming and comfortable and the breakfasts,cooked by our gracious hostess Delia,were delicious. Delia was extremely helpful and accommodating, and made our stay a wonderful experience. I'll certainly stay at Rutland House again!
