e were well taken care off and would recommend to anyone anytime. The place is secure and not far from malls and town. Definitely our accommodation spot when we are around PMB.

Lovely friendly owners who gave a warm welcome and went out of their way to assist me. The breakfast was plentiful and yummy. Good value for money.

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.

Ryan Maidwell,


Everything was great, I managed to get an awesome rate. Breakfast was so good, the unit was clean, neat and quite big. Definitely worth a try.


I enjoyed the night though I did not get to explore the place as I got there at night but Gloria opened for us with a smile, Hadeda room was clean and beautiful and comfortable. I would definitely visit again and also recommend. I had requested breakfast pack and it was fresh and tasty.


“Great place "Reviewed December 2, 2020
My son and I were in PMB helping my parents pack up their home. Matt's rest was the perfect escape after a long day of packing. It was quiet at night, safe parking for our car, provided a good breakfast, rooms we lovely with plenty of hot water and staff were friendly.

Friendly Matts B&B
We had a comfortable stay even though for one night. Staff were exceptionally friendly (from the time we enter the reception to our goodbye). Breakfast was awesome.

Good value for money
The management were very accommodating towards us, and allowed us to collect the key early, as we had to get to a wedding. There was secure parking (our parking bay was 5m from our room). The beds were comfortable and were everything that we expected. The breakfast in the morning had lots of variety and was tasty. Very good value for money.

Matt’s B&B was easy to find, and really lovely. Michelle and Rita were very welcoming and went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. The breakfast was really good as well. We’ll definitely visit again when we’re in PMB.

Great hospitable place
Breakfast was the highlight of my stay. You hardly find the quality and variety of food that offered at such a small establishment. The food was excellent....

I really enjoy my time down in KZN esp when I stay in an aircon room. The pool was great, and the breakfast was even better.

It was my second stay and the room was spacious, spotless, the bed was super comfortable, the decor of the room was modern and chic. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were friendly and accommodating. Definitely my favourite B&B in Pietermaritzburg.

I loved the warm reception from the host. I appreciated the fact that the host changed my room option and allocated a room with a pool view at no extra charge. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was superb. Good value for money.

I kept on changing my check in time and the owner kept on saying: don't worry it is perfectly fine and that made me feel welcome. When we arrived we were welcome with smiles. I will definitely come again.
Beautiful gardens, friendly staff, neat rooms and value for money. I will visit again.

Our stay was perfect. The stuff was friendly and very helpful, the room we were in had a good view
The breakfast was amazing, even though there was not much to choose from but it was amazing. As for the location it was perfect and it so quiet my partner really loved the location very much.
The place met my expectations so there was nothing that I didn't like.
