The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived, and as we embrace Lockdown Level 1, we look forward to welcoming our leisure guests back to Lexden Luxury Guesthouse.

What kind of traveller are you?

The nature lover
Many of our guests choose Lexden because of our much-loved gardens. If a lush setting, with ancient trees and tranquillity is what you love, then choose Lexden for your next trip to Pietermaritzburg.

The functional traveller
As the capital of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg plays host to a multitude of businessmen and women each year. Many choose Lexden over and again when working in the city where getting a good night’s rest and a delicious breakfast are paramount to a successful trip. If you have any specific dietary requirements, do let us know so we can try to accommodate you. Fibre WiFi is available at no extra cost.

The tourist
Pietermaritzburg may not have Cape Town’s Table Mountain or Durban’s beaches but our city plays a crucial role in the history of South Africa. With many iconic past leaders and historical events having occurred in our city, or nearby, using Lexden as a base, we are the tourist’s choice for exploring our interesting, if not chequered, past!

Our spacious, stylishly decorated rooms offer outstanding comfort, upmarket facilities and privacy. Cotton linen, feather and down pillows and garden views add to the appeal of all our rooms. Towelling gowns, slippers and fluffy white towels are available for your comfort.
