Our third stay over and every time an absolute pleasure. Nico and Tess make you feel welcome and at home. The rooms are big and beautifully decorated as is the rest of the house. The beds are ultra comfortable. Breakfasts are good and wholesome. For what more can one ask? Oh and let's not forget the beautiful gardens. Truely a... More

We were most fortunate to visit Graaf Reinet in the off-season and found ourselves the only guests at Avondrust. We were kindly upgraded to what appeared to be the best room in the house. The delicious omelette at breakfast was most appreciated, and we enjoyed the well-kept garden.

I am originally from Graaff-Reinet and though I have a family home nearby, my husband and I sometimes need a place to stay when we visit from the UK and the house is full. We have stayed in several places in town, but Avondrust is not only in our experience the best B&B in town, it’s one of the nicest... More

We stayed at the Avondrust Guesthouse for two nights in March 2015. We stayed at their Stables room. This room had a good size, was clean and nice decorated. The also offered a large bathroom with washing basin, toilet and shower. The room had air-conditioning which was a plus during the very warm days in March. Also a fridge and... More

A lovely building, extremely tasteful and lavish decor, creates the old world feel. Our host Nico was very attentive, giving good dinner recommendations nearby (we tried the Drostdy Hotel, a very good experience and dinner too). Breakfast is a treat, seated in the garden in a small dining area, birds singing, freezing cold, but heart warming.

The B&B is a bit dated but well maintained. The rooms are large and well equipped (we had 2 rooms). Wifi is OK and parking safe and on site. The front garden is being renovated so the entry was a bit of a jump. The breakfast is basic and greasy affair. We liked the breakfast room staff but felt the... More

Hey! the Guest House is located central in Graaff Reinet so you can walk to all the restaurants and shops. We felt really comfortable, it has a beautiful garden and wonderful clean rooms with very good equipment. Also there is a very nice pool in the garden to chill and relax. The breakfast was superb, the staff is really friendly... More

We stayed overnight on our way from Gauteng to PE, and Graaf-Reinette is the ideal stop over, with Avondrust the ideal sleep over. The service was good and very friendly, they even booked a restaurant for us (good idea over the busy season!). Beautiful gardens, our room was very private and tastefully decorated.

Booked Avondrust for my parents who were driving down to Cape Town, it seems there are quite a few Bed & Breakfasts to choose from in Graaff Reinet - so my parents were ever so happy I ended up booking this one for them! Owner Nico was so helpful booking a room for my folks at the last minute, and... More

We stayed over for one night at Avondrust. What a beautiful place! As soon as you step through the gate, you leave all your problems behind. We were so relaxed. Our room was very spacious and so neat. Breakfast the following morning was great and staff were very friendly. I will definitely recommend this Guest House to anyone. Hopefully one... More
