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...

What an easy, relaxed and comfortable place to stay. The view out back was absolutely wonderful - both day and moonlit starbright night. The collection of books on its own make it worth several more visits.

We chose to break our trip in De Rust and it was a very good choice. The rooms were both excellent, spotlessly clean and a fair price. Our evening meal was also well cooked, well presented and enjoyed on the upper deck. A warm, friendly welcome made us feel great after a long drive. The only downside were the cats...

Place is clean, friendly and the pool welcoming. Fan makes a bit of noise, but nothing Aircon won't sort out. The owner is a friendly and very welcoming person. I recommend it any day. Thanks Gareth & Connie

Would not advice anybody to go over Christmas period. Did not feel welcome. Did not prepare room for my son. Put his bedding on pull out couch for us to make up? No breakfast served. Worker busy painting deck around pool while you swim? Dinner was asked to eat in town.

Yes. Christmas is perhaps not the best time to visit De Rust. We had to prepare for a feast for the guests that stayed over that evening on Christmas day and we asked the reviewer if they could perhaps have breakfast in town. We only later heard that the whole of De Rust was closed! The painter... the poor guy...

From the moment the owner opened the door you knew that this is going to be an extra special stay. It is as if you came home after been a long time away. The rooms have the most wonderful views and the décor is a witness of the owners excellent taste. The dinner served is way above average compared to...
