Matts Rest B&B Guest Reviews

Matts Rest B n B is the best I've ever been to. Staff were very friendly, rooms were clean and food was excellent... we arrived on a very hot day and a nice cold glass of juice was sent to our room..
The service was excellent and loved every bit of my stay and was sad to leave.. the hospitality was so welcoming and made us feel at home...
Thank you so much Matts Rest. I've already spread the word of your great service all the way here in botswana. We will definitely be back.

We were treated like royalty. Very friendly and helpfull management and staff. Had breakfast just the way we ordered it. Was so impressed with them that we decided to extent our stay another 2 days.

“Big rooms, quiet place”

I spent one night at this hotel, located in the suburbs of Pietermaritzburg. The room is very big and spacious, clean and comfortable. I did not use the swimmingpool. They have a secure car park, but I had some problems with the gate's remote control. Breakfast is good.

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.

Great place! We could only stay one night, before our plane leaved. We were well received and the personnel was super nice and friendly to us!

most enjoyable”
The 4th day of out Charity cycle tour saw us overnight at Matt's. They stayed in contact with me before our arrival, advising us of breakfast arrangement before the Amashova cycle race, check our arrival time etc Nice rooms, friendly staff. Professional and well organized Highly recommended.

Matt's Rest proved to be the perfect place to hole up for a couple of days before Comrades Marathon 2014. The proprietors are warm and welcoming and the rooms comfortable and inviting. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying over in Pietermaritzburg in future.

A very enjoyable stay. Very neat and clean. Rita, Grant and their son Matt are very nice people. I would definately 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.

Good day my Friend. So sorry I took so long to email you. Hope you all ok. I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a warm welcome you gave me and Vuyo. Though we were far from home, you made us feel and be at home. The service was out of this world. I am definitely coming back for a stay and this time will bring the whole family. Keep up the good work and may the good Lord bless you and keep on blessing you and your family.

Friendly staff, especially owners. Rita went out of her way to accommodate our requests, including having our own guests over.for lunch. Kitchen quite small, room was very nice but had uneven floors, but was set for renovation. New rooms -very nice! Breakfast was fresh, hot and plenty. Could have more variety especially of staying more than 3 days. Would stay here again.

Matts Rest is super. Rooms are so clean and have everything you need. The owners are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. Highly recommend this place! They gave us information about local places to eat and really made our stay worthwhile. I will definitely be back.

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!

I've been to a lot of B&B's but never had a reason to check in on social media, but Matts Rest B & B gave me the reason to do so. We were booked there for 4 nights.
The best and even better than some of the Hotels I've been to
