If you plan to visit Lesotho, please take Philip Rawlins. the owner with you. He is an excellent guide and knows the best places to take you to into the mountains. Without him we would have missed the most beautiful scenery in all Lesotho. We would love to go back there sometime in the future!

We spent 2 nights there and really enjoyed our stay at Resthaven. Good value for money and they were very accommodating to us from the time we arrived up until we left. Will definitely stay here again next time am in Matatiele 😊

Clean room with all the required amenities, superb food and a host who is knowledgeable about travel in and around Lesotho. This was my second visit, will definitely be back again. Centrally located, it is the ideal venue from which to plan day trips.

This very welcoming bnb had everything I could possibly ask for. While i had the privacy of my own room, myself and my colleague felt very much at home in the dining room where we enjoyed a delicious homely meal. A friendly couple that goes out of their way to ensure your comfort. Thank you and I will be back!
