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

A very stylish Victorian building, very centrally located, but very quiet. Wonderful semi tropical garden where one can sit and relax. Several rooms are in the garden area. We stayed in the Feather Baron Suite in the main building, an elegant room, high ceiling, huge drapes, and an extremely comfortable bed, with a very nice seating area also. The breakfast... More

Staying at Avondrust has been an absolutely delightful experience for us. The kindness, generosity and warm welcome from our host, as well as the friendliness and dedication of all the staff, set the tone for what can only be described as one of the best stays we have ever had in a guest house. We stayed in the Honeymoon suite... More

This was really the highlight of our travels! Super stylish and in good taste. We stayed in the lavender room, and was pleasantly surprised with the nice fragrance in the room. We loved the guest lounge and the amazing breakfast on offer! Good quality linen and towels, as well as a bench for each of our suitcases.
