We had a fantastic stay. The room was beautiful! The staff was amazing. The food was delicious. We will definitely recommend Dawn to Dusk to our friends and hopefully we will get back again ourselves.

The surroundings and environment are very relaxing with excellent accommodation and genuine hospitality. The meals are wonderfully presented and the variety is outstanding. The best food in South Africa. Sadly we only had one night. Next time we will stay longer!

This was our second stay at Dusk to Dawn and even more beautiful than the first time staying in Robins Rest this time round. The unit is exquisitely decorated and appointed. The breakfast delicious and 5 star. We have booked for two nights again in October as one night is not enough in this gorgeous place.

The accommodation was excellent! Beautiful, tastefully decorated unit, friendly and helpful staff and a lovely, peaceful location. I would definitely recommend this establishment! Good selection of ready-made meals in their Deli and the breakfast was great!

What a lovely place to relax in an idyllic setting way off the beaten track. The accommodation was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had in South Africa. It's a pity we only spent one night there.

Our second stay at Dusk to Dawn was again an absolute pleasure. This B&B is very conveniently located 30 kms before Piet Retief when returning from the coast. Rooms are 4 star + and service is great. Tip for divers, D2D is less than 4 hours from Sodwana allowing you a relaxed morning dive before heading back to Joburg

We stayed in one of the new family units, which are very nicely decorated, spacious, clean and luxurious. The B&B is situated in the middle of nowhere, but this was just right for us seeking some relaxation on the way to the coast. The patio had nice views of the fields and green hills. As there are no restaurants in... More
