Boschdal Guesthouse is ideal if you are planning a romantic weekend away. The lodge is set in tranquil gardens with lots of bird species. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast menu could do with some prepping up though. They could add muffins, scones etc. Location very good, close to Waterfall Mall for evening meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge and would always go back.

I felt totally ripped off by Boschendal Upmarket Guesthouse. I will start by telling you what is good about the place. It looks quite nice, rooms are quite nice. the garden is nice, bedding is clean, towels and curtains are clean, the overall appearance is clean, there's covered parking space but thats about it.

The staff at Boschdal Upmarket Guesthouse are either incompetent or the owner is charging for services not provided or catered for. Our friends got a room where the aircon did not work in late November heat. After being moved to a smaller and less "Upmarket" room, that aircon did not work either and it was never repaired. Bochdal Upmarket Guesthouse claims to have a pub. Yes they apparently do BUT, is only visible through a closed window which might as-well not exist because, despite the place being booked full, it never opens. There is a fridge in the room BUT it has NOTHING in it, so If you want to drink water you better be willing to drink tepid and unpleasant tasting water out the tap. The TV in the room is the size of an average computer screen worthy of being watched by means of binoculars. The owners or Boschdal Upmarket Gusethouse claim that. "Guests can enjoy a buffet-style dinner outside on the tree-lined terrace, which includes a fire pit." REALLY? Somehow we missed that despite staying right next to the location! Buffet English Breakfast is advertised to be between 7AM and 10AM. Because Boschdal Upmarket Guesthouse was fully booked (described as Chock a Block by staff) we opted to miss the rush and attend during the last hour. This turned out to be a huge mistake because there was nothing left and may have been a first come first serve, while stocks last type of thing. There wasn't enough bread to make toast for all of the people attending and if your choice was white bread, there was none in the bread bin. There was a plate which appeared to may have had grated cheese in it at some stage during the morning. The scrambled eggs in the warmer was enough for 2 of the 4 of us but had become something other than scrambled eggs which those unfortunate to dish it up, chose to scrape out of our plate 5 minutes later.There was apparently 2 chicken nuggets which my partner had found but I could not. There was the remains of some sort of stir-fry which the meaty parts had already been scavenged and there was no beacon or sausage except for the greasy but otherwise bare warmers where it might have been in. After asking staff to replenish some food they arrived 15 minutes later with a dish of beacon and some fish cakes and offered to make us fried eggs.

In short. I would strongly suggest you keep looking for an alternative because. I have stayed at guest houses for less than HALF of what Boschdal Upmarket Guesthouse charges and I am honestly of the opinion that, other guesthouses at much lesser rates do deliver a superior experience, service and value for money. With a stay that for me, didn't leave a bitter taste in my mouth and that, did not necessitate a stop off at the Star Shop at the petrol station round the corner to fill the gap.

We stayed at Boschdal over a weekend and were met by warm and friendly staff members. The area is so beautiful, the rooms so homely and the decor is just refreshing. We would definately stay here again and recommend this place to anyone travelling to the Rustenburg area.

Rustenburg is a delightful area and we enjoyed the area greatly, with the near by Sun City a good place to visit. But without doubt, the Boschdal 'Luxury' Guesthouse is the worst and most unfriendly accommodation we have stayed in when visiting SA, if you decide to stay here check the small print especially.

The rooms have a 'motel' feel about them, the complex has no centre or heart to bring what should be a great location.

PS - bring your own towels if you want to use the pool!

I had an overnight stay at the Boschdal Guesthouse on 30 October 2018. The room was beautiful and well-equipped. The food served at dinner and at breakfast the next morning was excellent. The guesthouse is situated in a lovely neighbourhood, and the atmosphere is inviting and comforting. I would stay there again should I have the opportunity.

The service is excellent. The room was neat and tidy. The Guesthouse is located in a very strategic location. The staff is very and helpful. I would recommend anyone to book into the Guest House. The meal also is of good quality and always well cooked. The people in the dinning hall and the reception are kind and friendly.

I stayed for two nights at Boschdal upmarket Guesthouse and enjoyed every moment.
Friendly staff. Starting from the receptionist (Tsholo) to the chefs, managers and owners (Gawie and Janet).
The rooms are very clean, tidy and a pleasure to use.
The parking is safe, the food is good and the environment is calming.
I certainy recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Just got back from a 3 night New Year stay in Rustenberg and wasn't sure what to expect after reading mixed reviews on here but was very pleased! Clean, comfortable and secure accommodation with a great breakfast 6-9am: cereal, yogurts, juices, fresh fruit, nice bread for toasting, eggs anyway you wanted, cheeses, tomato, cucumber, mushrooms, patties (fish fingers one morning!), freshly baked savory muffins, bacon, different types of sausages and ham, beans (cold), creamed corn (yum), teas and coffee. Food is important to me...

The staff were really friendly with lots of local knowledge and tips, that made it for us really.

Each room has a veranda with comfy chairs, great views of the NYE fireworks from the first floor. Microwave fridge and kitchen area was very handy and a nice outdoor bbq area for an extra cost I think.

A small pool area which was relaxing amongst the fauna and plants (some for sale), lots of undercover parking and really comfy beds and pillows.

And very reasonable - location is in a quiet residential area of Rustenberg so driving out to nearby waterfall mall and couple of restaurants, a good choice of wine in the local liquor store!
Go to Mike's kitchen for a great steak! And close to Pilanesberg which was awesome and right next door to Kgaswane Mountain reserve - excellent for a hike.
