We stayed for one night during a 34 night road trip, so this review is relatively objective. Well, what a find in this area - wish we could have stayed for another night or so. Relatively easily found in a superb tranquil rural location. The owners were not on site when we arrived, but the staff made us very welcome... More

What a haven after the arduous trip through the Transkei. A beautifully furnished bedroom and the most amazing food. We were welcomed by the young couple who were standing in for Pat and Robert and they couldn't have been more hospitable. The garden is a delight and the views from the bedroom so attractive. Thank you for a marvellous stay... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely overnight stay at this guesthouse, set in beautiful farmlands, with lovely views. We were warmly welcomed by our hostess, Pat, and offered tea straight away in our well appointed room overlooking the pastures. The evening meal was a delicious home cooked dinner enjoyed in the guesthouse dining room with other guests. We chatted... More

Wonderful host, beautiful setting and gorgeous tasty farm cooking. We were en route from Cape to KwazuluNatal and stayed for the night. We will definitely stay there again. Peacehaven was highly recommended by my daughter and is also pet friendly

We needed a stop-over from East London to the Drakensberg and Peacehaven seemed to be the best choice but we had no high expectations. We couldn't have been more wrong! We received a very friendly welcome and since we had not been able to find somewhere to have lunch it being a Sunday we were offered, without asking soup with... More

The owners were most helpful and went out of their way in resolving a puncture which I had - we would have been really stuck without their help ! This was followed by an excellent meal and a few galsses of wine and great hospitality in a beautiful country setting

After hours of asphalt oncoming lorries and crazy white taxi drivers, changing gears on a well maintained dirt farm road with no traffic was a very welcome respite. Directions were effective and we found Peace Haven easily. The very competent hosts Pat and James are a lovely couple and we felt at home right away. A stunning view of rolling... More

The stay at Peacehaven Guesthouse was short however with a good night's rest and a full breakfast the stay could not really be improved. I arrived at night and could not take in the surrounding area. After breakfast the view hit me right between the eyes and with the presence of the loving dogs I would say that this is... More

If you are travelling from PE or East London to/from Kwazulu/Drakensberg/Durban and don't want to travel for 10hours+ then there is really very little choice but to hook up in the Kokstad area (Unless you want to experience the madness that is mthata!). And if you do choose to stay there, then this guesthouse is probably your best choice. It... More
