Delia is a warm, welcoming hostess: so nice to talk with over breakfast or tea. She will do whatever is required to make your stay comfortable and accommodate your needs. She is very keen on mountain biking, so...

We spent 3 days at Rutland and thought this was the perfect English bed and breakfast establishment. The bedroom was large with en-suite and a kitchenette. Breakfast was brilliant and there was lots of choice of options. Convenient for restaurants nearby. The room, pool and garden were perfectly maintained and secure. Our hostess was welcoming and entertaining. If were to...

Our stay at Rutland House has been great, it is very comfortable, home from home and the service is excellent. It is very centrally situated and close to all amenities in the Sandton area. On the door step of good restaurants and shops but still very peaceful and quiet. I can certainly recommend it.

Located in an upper middle class white neighborhood, the B&B is comfortable, cozy and very attractive. A dip in their swimming pool late afternoon is refreshing and surrounded by tree and vegetation. The suites have comfortable sofa, table and kitchen with coffee/tea maker, microwave, pots and pens, etc. The location leads you to the park under the shade of jacaranda...

Delia has created a pocket of loveliness in Jo'Berg's beautiful verdant area of Craighall Park. From the moment I arrived, I felt swept up in welcome. All the touches create that special and hard-to-find 'home-from-home' quality: the beautiful flower-filled gardens and scents, the many different areas to relax, the books to enjoy, paintings and art works produced locally, the abundant...
