• What more can I say. I have been staying at Matts Rest for the past 6 months and have felt so much like family it is almost unbelievable. From the family Cat Felix, to the staff. Their concern is your comfort and Happiness. Michelle is so special and is always ready to help you with your daily requests. Rita your evening meals are so special, I enjoy each and every evening. To everyone who would like to experience "HOME" away from home, Matts Rest in Pietermarizburg must be the guest house / B and B of choice. Thank you Grant, Rita and Michelle for making my long term stay so much easier.

  • We really enjoyed our stay. It’s nice to stay at a B&B that's clean. Friendly people. Thanks It was an amazing two days we spent at Matt's rest. Each one of the 4 of us had only good things to say about it, the place is really a great advertisement of what Pietermaritzburg has to offer. Thanks lwazi ziqubu,

  • A very enjoyable stay. Very neat and clean. Rita, Grant and their son Matt are very nice people. I would definitely stay there again. My granddaughters enjoyed the pool and the play area. Close to highway, mall and shops...its really a home away from home. We enjoyed our stay at Matt's rest. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. My kids enjoyed the jungle gym and playing with Mathew. Kevin Westermann

  • Matt's Rest is 'diep rustig', a beautiful and quiet place. I can recommend Matt's Rest to anyone who just wants to break away Danie Mostert

  • We had a lovely time at Matt's Rest B&B. The hosts were very kind to us, the room itself was stunning and just what we needed after a long drive! Breakfast was delicious and the price charged was worth it. We do recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit the city of Pietermaritzburg and need a place to relax and stay! Moira Flanaga

  • Rita, our hero, was nothing short of amazing. Thank you for being so accommodating to our wild ways. We loved the cottage. At some point considered living there. Forever! Thank you, thank you, and thank you. Beautiful! Mariam Jacobs

    From Our Regular Guest Matt’s rest is one of the best b&b’s that I have stayed in and I am a sales rep, so I stay in a lot of b&b’s! The people are friendly and very helpful, not to mention the breakfast, now that is something worth paying for!! Everything is always neat and tidy and smells fresh! And they live up to they’re moto “may those who enter as guests, leave as friends” because today we are friends! I will always return to Matt’s rest Eric Muller

  • We are a family of 4 who stayed here for one night on the way to the Drakensberg, arriving in the dark and leaving in the dark. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room which was tight on space but comfortable. Most importantly it had a heater in both rooms, very welcome during the South African winter. In the morning we discovered the showers were difficult to regulate, but once we got the hang of them there was plenty of hot water. What we were most grateful for was the willingness of the staff to provide a cooked breakfast at 6am, especially when we only arrived at 7 the evening before. It was a much needed meal ahead of a 4 day hike, thank you Stayed July 2015, travelled with family

  • The service is very good, they are very friendly and welcoming. The room is clean and comfortable, The B and B in 10 min away from the airport, Friendliness is beyond words. I love attention and they give just that.
