3 of us had an unfortunate stay here and to be fair, what went wrong had very little to do with the rooms or the staff. The first evening we had no electricity so was left to eating cheese sandwiches for dinner! However the incessant barking of dogs from the dogs home over the road was very annoying, especially as...

Thank you Barbara for this wonderful hidden gem. We had 2 nights in cottage 5 and wished we could have stayed longer. You have everything you need for self catering, and it is central to anywhere in pietermaritzburg. Great value, luxurious and wonderful hot water at any time of the day. Don't miss this hospitality!

Stunning self catering guest lodge located in a residential area of Pietermaritzburg. We had the ‘new’ honeymoon suite which was at the end of a block of three units, other suites are located around the large pretty garden and pool area. All the rooms at the lodge looked to be equally well appointed. The layout of the suite is largely...
