“If only it was closer...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

My partner and I came across Alan's Rest while looking for accommodation in peak holiday season.. We are both incredibly pleased that this was 1 out of 2 Available B&B's for our dates...else we might never have stumbled on this gem! We even extended our stay by 1 night before heading back to Johannesburg, very reluctant to leave this great establishment! The attention to detail, tranquil setting, location and hosts (Angie and Heiner) are just superb! If only Alan's rest was closer, we would be frequent visitors! And do try the roast potatoes!!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

My husband and I stayed here over a weekend for our anniversary. It's a beautiful place in a beautiful setting! The attention to detail was a great factor in making our stay an enjoyable and relaxing one. The hosts are incredibly friendly and professional, and made us feel welcomed. We'd recommend this b&b to anyone looking for a relaxing break in paradise. Truly wonderful!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Me and my wife wanted a quiet weekend away from the rat-race; we found this lovely little guesthouse in Southbroom Kwa-zulu Natal
It about 130km south of Durban, and what a find!!
Everything was just perfect, the room, the Jacuzzi in the room, I really cannot think of one item to say negatively
The owners was absolutely fabulous and I can recommend this guesthouse with total confidence

Room Tip: Choose the red room it has a jacuzzi in
