Rutland Lodge in Oranjezicht

Tucked away on a quiet tree-lined street in the stylish Cape Town suburb of Oranjezicht , lies the luxurious 5 Star Rutland Lodge. This magnificent Herbert Baker house, with its Cape Dutch architecture, is framed against Table Mountain.

The original house was built some time around the turn of the century and the Higginson Family have restored it into an exclusive Boutique Guest House. The renovations have retained the character of the era house while ensuring that today's discerning guests luxuriate in the modern comforts with total privacy and personal service.

Rutland Lodge is located close to the major roads that lead to all the popular destinations, including Cape Town CBD, Table Mountain, the world-renowned V&A Waterfront, Clifton and Camps Bay beaches, as well as the free-way leading to Cape Town International Airport and the Winelands.

The tastefully appointed guest suites are excellent havens of reserved relaxation, giving guests a place to retire after a long day of work, sightseeing or travel. Each of the exquisitely decorated suites features a walk-on balcony or leads onto a private garden and includes a tastefully finished en-suite bathroom, luxurious bathrobes, pure cotton sheets, goose down duvets, and king-size or twin beds. All the suites are air-conditioned and offer minibars, DVD players, DStv, telephones, Internet access, safes and hairdryers. All the luxuries one expects from a contemporary Boutique Guest House.

In summer, cool down in the swimming pool or take tea in the garden. Fresh flowers and old traditions, cool marble and warm smiles complete an extraordinary guest experience.

Rutland Lodge rating

Rutland is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood near table mountain. The rooms were well kept, the view from the porch was beautiful, and the staff were friendly. A great "home base" for travelers to Cape Town.

"Very nice place"

Russ was very nice, and the place was really cool. Nice place to stopover at, and the breakfast was the best!

"5 Star You Bet It Is!"

Superbly located in the beautiful and very safe suburb of Oranjezicht (no I cant say it either!) at the foot of Table Mountain enjoying extensive views of both mountain and city. First floor sundeck with amazing views ofTable Mountain behind a flame tree (see photo). Nice shady pool area with comfortable loungers. The location of the lodge makes it an easy drive/taxi to all parts of town, Camps Bay and the airport.Our large contemporary room (room 5) was beautifully and stylishly appointed throughout with large comfortable bed, private facilities, separate dressing room, air con, minibar and private balcony with extensive views. Furnishings were a well balanced mix of antique and modern design.Welcoming owners Janet and John deliver warm and personal service but are not intrusive nothing is too much trouble. We were invited to their New Years Eve party and soon felt part of the family, watching the fireworks from the deck area.Excellent restaurant recommendations and booking service taxis arranged if necessaryHigh quality breakfast served indoor or out with proper coffee all cooked and served by friendly manager, Ross.We ate at the following restaurants:- Baia (V&A)This was recommended to us by Janet for our wedding anniversary and what a great recommendation. An excellent seafood restaurant commanding beautiful views of Table Mountain.- Saigon (Gardens)Another excellent recommendation by Janet serving good quality and cheap Vietnamese food.- Balthazar (V&A)A bit touristy but a great place to have steak extensive wine list if a little over priced watch out for the annoying wine waiters trying to sell you expensive bottles of wine. Nice place to go for a glass of wine before dinner.- The Codfather (Camps Bay)Nice seafood but a little expensive for the setting.- Bukhara (City Bowl)High quality Indian food (particularly the Tandoori) in a vibrant atmosphere.
