    The best B&B in Pietermaritzburg by far! Forget AirBnB, or a hotel: this is where you get the most lovely rooms, a delicious breakfast, plenty of personal touch: look no further. The rooms are very clean, and cleverly designed, and contain a huge soft bed...More

    My partner was ill when we arrive here and Morag couldn't have been more helpful. She organised food for him so that we didn't have to go out. The house is very homely and welcoming. Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Stayed at Babbling Brook for Dusi Canoe marathon this year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Clean, quiet, well maintained room and Morag could not have been more helpful in helping in adapting to our unusual requests from pack lunches to 5.00 am checkouts to laundry...More

    We had a two night stay at Babbling Brook and from the moment we got there to the moment we left we loved it. It is warm and homely and Morag was so accommodating and pleasant. We will definitely be going back there next year.

    This has been by far the best BnB I've stayed in. The service was great and friendly. The area is also beautiful. The breakfast was also very good on all days that we stayed there. Thank you to Gordon and Morag.
