Matt's Rest proved to be the perfect place to hole up for a couple of days before Comrades Marathon 2014. The proprietors are warm and welcoming and the rooms comfortable and inviting. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying over in Pietermaritzburg in future.

We were well taken care off and would recommend to anyone anytime. The place is secure and not far from malls and town. Definitely our accomodation spot when we are around PMB.
