Everything about De Rust View was impressive. Perched at the top of a hill in the village, the setting offers views that are even more spectacular than the photos suggest. The owners were always around to help and were incredibly friendly, the rooms impeccable, and the home cooked meals were outstanding. Definitely take Ben up on his offer of dinner!... More

We recently spent a night in the Karoo View 2 room and were captivated by the fantastic views looking towards Meiringspoort, plus the sunset. This guest house came as such a surprise in tiny De Rust and was one of the best places we stayed at during a recent road trip. The room and bathroom were super-clean and comfortable and... More

We arrived on a cold afternoon, but the warm welcome made up for it. The room and all the other facilities were perfect - just a pity the aircon in the upstairs living room was not working. The dinner was delicious and we were so glad that we haven't had to go our to find something to eat on such... More

Stayed just one night in Karoo View 2. Easter Monday. Big, spacious, clean room with similar balcony and great view. Located well above the main street in De Rust. Very quiet. Ample parking directly outside. Good welcome. Friendly house with honesty bar and we enjoyed an excellent home cooked dinner (proper shepherds pie and chocolate brownies with ice cream) -... More

I could not fault this property in terms of views, cleanliness and welcome. We had the most wonderful views in the middle of a thunderstorm and we had a great room. However they no longer provide the wonderful dinners others have commented on and there is very little alternative in this small town. Unfortunately we were only aware of this... More

We definitely do dinners. Last night Coq au vin was on the menu and the previous night Trinchado. The only times that we don't do dinners are when guests arrive late and unexpected or when we are out of town. On Friday nights we prefer guests to visit our local pub, The Kudu, where excellent wood-fired pizzas are made. But... More

My sister & I had a lovely one night stay in the family room as it was the only room with separate beds, so unfortunately we had to forgo the view over the mountains from our bedroom window. However, sitting in the lounge upstairs overlooking the valley and mountain views beyond was lovely. We received a warm welcome from Lani... More

Stayed here with friends for a night and booked the Karoo View 2 and Explorer rooms. The view from the Karoo View 2 is spectacular and it's a real treat to be able to open the glass panel doors completely and watch the sunrise from the huge comfortable bed! The room's private deck has the most incredible view which you... More

From the UK we saw this B&B via a schoolfriend on Facebook and thought it would be a good halfway break on our way to Kenton-On-Sea. On arrival, we were shown to our rooms...Explorer/Karoo View 2 and Karoo View 1... WOW was the comment from all 5 of us!! Stunning rooms.. After travelling we swam in the refreshingly cool swimming... More
