I booked Unit #9 in July 2020 for Friday 12 & Saturday 13 June 2020. Luckily I decided to double check my reservation for Comrades. Despite written confirmation of my booking for 12 & 13 December in Unit #9, I got a response of: Unfortunately i do not have a booking for you as it was never taken down. Rob Shaw No longer works for this business. We are fully booked. I do apologies for the inconvenience. Thereby leaving us without accommodation for Comrades - 28 000 runners & their families - there is not a room to be found anywhere near Pietermaritzburg! And no response to an email showing the written confirmation received.

This is a great spot for family. We where a large group, using various rooms and we all enjoyed our stay. This property is very central and close to shops and restaurants. Family rooms where large and well kitted out.

We find this tranquil and peaceful venue meets our expectations and requirements each and every time that we visit relatives and friends in Hilton and Howick. The facilities are super and one must accept that they are more "Self Catering". There are so many facilities within almost walking distance where one can have whatever meals ones heart desires. (The Quarry 1km, Hilton 1km and Rotunda 4km) The units are well equipped, well maintained and have nice comfortable furnishings. They have decent sized TV sets, well positioned and with a range of channels to choose from. One can easily use this venue as a base to explore the Natal (Kzn) Midlands and the Natal Hinterland.
