About De Berg Guesthouse

De Berg Guesthouse is situated in Matatiele, in the shadow of the Drakensberg. We were established in 2005 by the Pieterse family who still manage the place. Because our guests are important to us, we offer friendly service, clean and spacious rooms and delicious meals.

Our town is also called "Sweet Matat" by the locals and it lies on the R56 which is the shortest and most scenic route between the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and the Cape. There are three border posts into Lesotho which are between 40 and 60 km from Matatiele. The Mountain Lake Reserve forms part of Matatiele and is host to the rare rudd's lark.

              We can't comment on the suite we booked as it was "being renovated" when we arrived and they put us in a "flat" nearby. It was a big, private cottage with garden. All seemed fresh and new, and it was comfortable. Lacking little touches like side tables or outdoor chairs, but fine for overnight. No ice in the freezer and no ice trays.

              Some parts of the room need maintenance - shower tray for instance. Otherwise a pleasant atmosphere.

              Friendly hostess Amelie, recommended dinner at the golf club that was enjoyable and very reasonably priced.Some seating in the room would have been appreciated.

              Annelie and her family looked after us very well during our stay and helped us with our specific request to go birding in the Matatiele reserve. Annelie organised permits and keys for us with short notice. The rooms were lovely and clean and the garden is beautiful.

              This was an excellent stay for one night - the room was spacious and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the hostess attentive without being in one's face. It was clean with good linen. The delicious supper of lamb shank vegetables, salad and dessert was memorable. I would use this BB again.
