Matanja and Marian and her family gave me a fine stay, thank you. The rooms were clean and convenient. The only recommendations I would have is that each room should have an arm chair in which one may sit and read, and that there should be enough table space to allow comfortable work on a laptop

Our 2nd time around - it's home away from home! Everything is perfect - the only negative we experienced at Rest Assured was no hand towel near the basin - otherwise no problem. Very safe and quite! Mariaan made us feel at home and even remembered us from our first visit! Definitely a must to experience..

"I arrived as a weary unknown guest, I left as a dear friend. Matanja truly is a place of rest and revival. Marian, your efforts and small little touches makes all the difference. Be blessed my friend

I have always enjoyed being at Matanja Guesthouse. Home away from home. Rest Assured. I cannot fully describe the warmness you experience when you arrive and your stay for the period you booked. Well located. Fantastic room. There is nothing that I do not like least. i like everything from the room, food location. the management, the service. Just fantabulous.

Planned to stay here due to TripAdvisor reviews.

Lovely stay and a delicious breakfast. Will recommend for anyone traveling to Bloemfontein. We got a really friendly reception and the service was excellent. Booking was easy and hassle free.

Absolutely excellent place. Stylish, modern, comfortable and impecably clean. Will make a point of returning when passing through Bloemfontein. Keep up the good work!!! Maybe some roofing just outside the room doors?
