Our room was very comfortable and came with a fully fitted kitchen as well as en suite. We chose the dinner, bed and breakfast, and weren't disappointed. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. It is within walking distance of the centre of town. And has secure off road parking, and free wifi.
We were made to feel so welcome at Resthaven. Our accommodation was outstanding and provided everything we needed and more! We felt safe and comfortable and really enjoyed our stay! The view from our room was great too!
We visited Resthaven Guesthouse on 6-10 January, and we again enjoyed the wonderful, warm hospitaility of Philip and Elrita. They really went out of their way to cater for dietary requests, and to assist with anything that might make the stay more comfortable. The rooms are very comfortable, the location is excellent, the parking is easily accessible and very secure. They clearly put in great effort to maintain the facilities to a very high standard, and to really serve their customers. Thank you very much, once again, for a wonderful stay.
What a true gem this place is. The warm welcome and hospitality is outstanding. Philip gave us a lot advice about Lesotho and places to visit, he knows all the best spots and is very passionate about tourism. He also took us on a off road experience to a lake in the mountains and showed us around. We were there for two nights waiting to get through Lesotho border, it’s closing at 4pm on Saturday and reopens on Monday. Rooms are very spacious and clean and of course do not miss the famous steak, the best in SA! Delicious. Thank you so much and we hope to be back one day.
We had sup boards on our car & a fridge which needed overnight power. Philip arranged plug in facility so unnecessary to offload anything. Safe parking. Accommodation very comfortable & steak dinner superb.
What a gem! Resthaven guest house in Matatiele. Here you will find warm hospitality at it's best! Owners Philip & Elrita made us feel more like family. Farm style, traditional cuisine so delicious..... We will be back for more... Resthaven has so much too offer, more than Just accomodation. Thank you to Philip, Elrita & their friendly staff for excellent service. You made our trip and stay very special. All the best from Ursula (Sea view)
What a beautiful and well appointed guest house in a pleasant part of the town. The rooms were absolutely spotless with plenty of attention to detail. Phillip and Elvita were always on hand to offer advice. Their home cooking was out of this world. Phillip went out of his way to show us around the countryside. The highlights were a dam in the mountains, San rock paintings and an old church. It is my second visit and they have not seen the last of me!
Excellent service at this sought after Guest House. Good food, super rooms and friendly staff. Philip and Elrieka walk the extra mile to make your stay a highlight of your travel. Philip knows the area and being with him and Bhejane Tours, on a recent travel trip to Lesotho was magnificent. We will be back soon.
It's not an often occurrence to meet people and they feel like family in only one day,but that was the case for us at Resthaven.We have found the cleanliness of the rooms, the quality of the food and the excitement of the excursions exceptional.We would recommend the hospitality of Phillip and Erina to anyone who wish to have a great time and learn more of the gems of Matatiele
This is our second time staying at Resthaven in Matatiele and we are impressed .... AGAIN! Beautiful, secure property with lovely gardens and green lawns for the kids to play on; very comfortable & clean rooms; gorgeous little ‘surprises’ (eg flowers in a wheelbarrow; antiques on display); delicious dinner; etc etc. Our host, Philip, made us feel very comfortable and welcome. We’ve stayed in both the self-catering & guesthouse. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
