I would highly recommend Branley Lodge to anyone seeking a memorable guesthouse experience. This establishment has undoubtedly earned its place among the finest accommodations I have had the pleasure of staying at. The rooms are meticulously maintained, showcasing tasteful furnishings. Situated in a picturesque location, the guesthouse offers a truly enchanting setting. What truly sets Branley Lodge apart is the exceptional level of service provided by Beverley, the owner. Throughout my two-week stay, she went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of my visit was flawless. It is a rare and heartwarming experience to find a guesthouse where you are embraced as part of the family rather than merely treated as another customer. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to both Beverley and Brian for their remarkable hospitality. Without a doubt, I eagerly look forward to returning to Branley Lodge in the future. Thank you once again for an unforgettable stay – you can be certain that I will be back!

We had to travel at short notice over a long weekend, which normally would spell disaster in KZN. I explained our situation to Bev and she bent over backwards to accommodate us - even waiting up for us late into the night. This B&B manages the fine balance between hospitality and privacy. All the rooms have outside access, safe parking and are well appointed, clean and a comfortable size. The breakfast service was a highlight for me. Great food in a beautiful setting. Bev is also on-hand for some fabulous conversation! We will definitely be back.

This location is safe and convenient. It is a well run B&B. However, the best part of the stay here are the hosts and owners Bev and Brian. They are warm, welcoming and helpful in every way. If you are looking for a place to stay in Hillcrest, this is it!

We had a lovely stay and this B&B can be highly recommended. Rooms are big, comfortable and clean. The staff is friendly and the owners are very tentative. A nice variety of food are offered for breakfast. Will definitely stay there again.

A real gem of a B&B! Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We spent 2 lovely nights here. Hosts Brian and Bev very welcoming and friendly. Great breakfast served in a open plan area, room opens out onto garden and overlooks the pool. Would highly recommend this delightful place if in the area.

I spend one night at Branley Lodge after having to book at short notice. I had heard such lovely things about Bev, the hostess, but unfortunately she wasn't there while we were staying. Our room was comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was lovely - the usual hot (eggs, bacon, tomato) along with cereal, joghurt etc. On the whole it was a pleasant stay in a good location.

Have spent two nights with Brian and Bev at Branley Lodge. They were wonderful hosts, who could not do enough to make our stay perfect. Convenient for the 1000hills and and trips inland. Highly recommended.
