      we have a great stay at Resthaven this past weekend. The place is very quiet and serene and above all we recommend the friendly staff and a great service. Thanks to Zandi for all the necessary assistance. We will definitely be back!

      Rooms are nice and clean. Welcome was friendly and we were asked what time we wanted breakfast the next morning. Breakfast was ok and then we were asked for another  R200 after we had eaten it. Not at all impressed! Spoiled the stay as felt we had been ripped off. Local area has nothing going for it but a fair base to stop before moving on.

      Room was clean, receptionist friendly. Stayed there on a Friday night and there was a very noisy party that carried on until about 3 am. Electricity failed during the night and air-con did not work. Owner arranged for electrician to fix promptly, so that was very good service.
