The rooms were very small and cramped, and there were no shelves for us to unpack anything, only one hanging cupboard with a few hangers. Our shower drain was also broken. On their website, they say that they offer a discount on group bookings. However when we enquired about that, they denied us the discount, even though we had booked out almost the entire bnb. Furthermore, when we booked (as we booked well in advance), we weren't allowed to pay the current price listed on their website, instead they made sure that they increased the price before we were allowed to pay, which I thought was very underhanded. To their credit, the receptionist was very friendly and the breakfast was decent.

We had a lovely stay at Matts’s. The rooms are spacious, clean and the bed is very comfortable. There are some room for improvements. The dstv package is limited and the Wi-Fi did not allow us to connect. The entrance to the proper is very narrow which made it a bit more tricky for our big car. We stayed in a room right next to the reception and had to keep the curtains closed for privacy which blocked the sun out. We suggest one way tint on the doors so that the natural light can fill the room. Overall for a 2 night stay it was good as we came prepared.

The place is in need of refurbishment. The play area for kids is muddy and smelly. Tiles around the pool are cracked and need fixing. Internet is weak and sometimes inaccessible. Not all the DSTV channels are accessible. The roads getting there are in a poor state. Breakfast was simple with few options. Come on Rita and the team we know you can do better.
