We chose to break our trip in De Rust and it was a very good choice. The rooms were both excellent, spotlessly clean and a fair price. Our evening meal was also well cooked, well presented and enjoyed on the upper deck. A warm, friendly welcome made us feel great after a long drive. The only downside were the cats... More

Place is clean, friendly and the pool welcoming. Fan makes a bit of noise, but nothing Aircon won't sort out. The owner is a friendly and very welcoming person. I recommend it any day. Thanks Gareth & Connie

Would not advice anybody to go over Christmas period. Did not feel welcome. Did not prepare room for my son. Put his bedding on pull out couch for us to make up? No breakfast served. Worker busy painting deck around pool while you swim? Dinner was asked to eat in town.

Yes. Christmas is perhaps not the best time to visit De Rust. We had to prepare for a feast for the guests that stayed over that evening on Christmas day and we asked the reviewer if they could perhaps have breakfast in town. We only later heard that the whole of De Rust was closed! The painter... the poor guy... More

From the moment the owner opened the door you knew that this is going to be an extra special stay. It is as if you came home after been a long time away. The rooms have the most wonderful views and the décor is a witness of the owners excellent taste. The dinner served is way above average compared to... More

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

We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us - in spite of the cold! You will be glad to hear that every room at the Rust View has now been fitted with airconditioners that have heating capabilities. So you are sure to have a cosy room in no time. Why the entertainment area's aircon wasn't working that night, I'm not... More
