About Bushwillows Bed & Breakfast

Bushwillows Bed and Breakfast was established in 1993 and is one of the first B&B’s to open in Rustenburg. The property is set on a mountainside in the Magaliesberg Mountain range with magnificent views over the valley and is a frost-free area. The property is 3.64 ha in extent and has a multitude of indigenous trees which give it a forest like feel. The bird life is exceptional, especially in the summer months.


To keep the establishment as quiet and private as possible, the owner, Bill McGill, has restricted the accommodation to eight beds - two en suite bedrooms and a family suite consisting of two bedrooms which share a bathroom. There is a small lounge for children where there is a TV set and a fridge. Both bedrooms in the family suite have a view over the valley. There is a swimming pool and a braai area.

The property is situated just off the R24 and the Waterfall Shopping Mall is only 5.7 kms away. There are three excellent restaurants within easy reach: The Dek (Bulgarian), Ebenheazer’s Castle (South African) and The Brauhaus (German). There are also the usual steakhouses and pizzerias to be found in the Mall.


Breakfast is served from 07h00 and 09h00 unless otherwise arranged. The menu consists of:
• Fruit and / or fruit juice
• Cereal
• Bacon and / or sausage
• Eggs to order
• Marrow or sweetcorn patties and / or mushrooms
• Grilled tomato
• Homemade bread or toast
• Coffee or tea

Art exhibition

A permanent exhibition of Bill’s paintings, representing a wide variety of South African wildlife, birds, sea scenes and landscapes from the Kalahari and the Cape to KwaZulu Natal and the Kruger National Park are on display at Bushwillows. Bill also lectures and teaches watercolour painting, holding workshops all over South Africa. He is regarded as one of South Africa’s leading watercolourists.

Activities and Attractions

The owner is a keen birder and has an excellent knowledge of the area, as well as the Pilanesberg Game Reserve and will advise guests where to drive in the reserve in order to enjoy the best viewing of game.

Situated approximately 120 km’s west of Johannesburg and Pretoria, Rustenburg is known for its warm and sunny climate. Rustenburg’s Kgaswane Nature Reserve adjoins Bushwillows while Sun City and the Pilanesberg National Park are a mere 35 kms from the town. Game drives and walking trails are available in the parks and canopy tours of the Magaliesberg can be arranged. There is an elephant sanctuary and the Cheetah Rehabilitation Centre at Hartebeespoort Dam, which is approximately 50 kms from Rustenburg.

Day trips to the Pilanesberg can be arranged with Bill as the guide for no more than three people (or as many as your own vehicle can accommodate). Bird watching can be arranged with a member of the Rustenburg Birding Club provided that the booking is done well in advance.

Verified reviewexcellent

I stayed in the bushwillows a couple of years ago. It seems that Rustenburg and surroundings was slowly fading away and people were retrenched and as I said it seemed as if Rustenburg was going down. People moved out of Rustenburg thinking it was finished and I was one of the lucky people still working and doing contract work in the area. I stayed in the Bushwillows and this was such a nice place. Surrounded by nature high up on the mountain overlooking Rustenburg and this is where I bought my first Painting from Bill McGill. I still have the painting hanging in my house and ended up buying the second one just before I booked out of the BB. After so many years I’m now searching for my third painting from him. Soon I will buy the third painting and treasure / display it in my house for friend and family to see. This BB is the best stay in years and a must for people that want to feel close to nature and art and feeling at home.
