Lovely little B&B with a stunning view from the top of the village. Clean and well presented, A/C in room, friendly owners who are very knowledgeable about the local area. They do a really great breakfast with home-made additions, even if it is a little pricey! The outside pool area is perfect at the end of a hot day, the... More

What an easy, relaxed and comfortable place to stay. The view out back was absolutely wonderful - both day and moonlit starbright night. The collection of books on its own make it worth several more visits.

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.

Benderust1, Owner at De Rust View Guest House, responded to this review

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

What a lovely guest house! We had a wonderful stay, the views are incredible! Highly recommended staying here and if you get the chance go to the kaalgat kudu for a pizza! The rooms were stunning and the owners extremely helpful and made our stay very relaxed and comfortable! We will definitely be back!

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
