We pride ourselves in offering a stay that is different to any other in Pietermaritzburg; our spectacular viewpoint from up high on the hill overlooking the whole of the city, set in our lush gardens infused by glorious natural light and our classically designed buildings set us just that bit apart from any other stay in the City of Choice.

During last year, we gave three of our rooms a complete new and contemporary look to ensure we are always keeping up to date and offering our guests the best stay possible.

Our founder has a particularly keen eye for interior decorating and has led the contemporary changes that can be seen in our rooms now, including:

  • Adopting the “less is more” look with more open spaces and compact storage facilities.
  • Allowing more natural light to enter by minimising window and door furnishings
  • Introducing subtle ceiling lighting lending to the relaxed atmosphere of the rooms
  • Incorporating a Scandinavian look that includes clean lines, grained marble countertops and contemporary furniture
  • Converting rooms into comfortable spaces that meet the comfort and requirements of business travellers, families and small groups


As one of more popular rooms with French doors leading out onto an ivy-trailed veranda, we decided to give Room 4 an extensive modern revamp. If you are travelling as a small group or family and are looking for a fuss-free stay, Room 4 is a delightful choice with an additional, separate but conjoined room with two single beds.


If you enjoy soaking up some nature while in the city, our Plumbago rooms are ideal for their spectacular garden views from an exclusive veranda patio. As a result of a rather large renovation project, we divided one room into two, allowing more than one guest to be able to enjoy this secluded, self-catering option.

Plumbago Room 1 now has the added bonus of a wet room, providing a much more spacious shower experience – just another way we hope to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

If you enjoy getting creative with your culinary skills, Plumbago Room 2 offers a fully equipped kitchen that boasts modern appliances. It also offers a large bathroom with a shower and bath.


With your comfort in mind, all our rooms offer cotton linen and towels as well as feather and down pillows and duvets. We also offer thoughtful extras free of charge, including tea and coffee, a limited DSTV package and fast, uncapped fibre Wi-Fi.

If you have stayed with us before, be sure to visit us again and let us know what you think of our stylish new look.
