We stayed for one night towards the end of a road trip. What a lively place. Lovely people, lively views. Great room, nice food. There's a well stocked honesty bar and music playing in the background. Very nice indeed.

We spent 2 nights at the De Rust View Guesthouse and highly recommend the accommodation to anyone looking for an escape in the Karoo, from the hot coffee when we woke up to having a cold one by the refreshing pool during the hot Karoo days. The room was excellent and the hosts were very accommodating and cooked a special...

We loved our room with the best view ever. Lovely to sit outside and relax with a glass of wine before having an amazing dinner cooked by the owner, Ben. We usually go to Kaalgat Koedoe for a pizza but it was closed ! Worth a visit but Bens hospitality was superior !!

Spacious rooms, great food and a warm welcome for a bunch of us on our way to hike the Leopard Trail and Ben and his wife did not flinch when we hauled in our pack after a long drive from CT. Ben's Greek lamb dish was equal to the best 5 star restaurant and the breakfast equally good. Most rooms...

Stopped off for one night and stayed for two. Views from our room and the main areas are stunning during the day. However even these are surpassed at night. With virtually no light polution the night sky with so many stars and the milky way is just sensational. Rooms are large and comfortable with air conditioning for those 'hot days/nights'....

Lovely little B&B with a stunning view from the top of the village. Clean and well presented, A/C in room, friendly owners who are very knowledgeable about the local area. They do a really great breakfast with home-made additions, even if it is a little pricey! The outside pool area is perfect at the end of a hot day, the...
