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.

We were impeccably welcomed by our host, who explained to us the Victorian house's history, and his dedication to maintaining its comfortable elegance. His passion for such a fine building shows in the suitably respectful choice of furniture and decor we found in the Feather Baron Luxury Suite - reasonably fine antiques and delicate china, rich upholstery and warm hues....

The room was beautifully decorated and had everything that we needed- including tea/coffee in the room. The owner recommended a very nice restaurant - 50 metres down the... More
