About A Garden Suite

Situated in the lush, northern suburb of Athlone in Pietermaritzburg, our B&B is ideally located close to a number of private schools, shopping malls and hospitals. We are 10 minutes from the central business district and Hilton, and 20 minutes from Midmar Dam and the start of the Midlands Meander.

Our gorgeous Garden Suites are tastefully furnished with cottage pieces and comfortable beds, duvets and throws. Our main Garden Suite is well appointed with a private entrance, garden and verandah. It consists of a double bedroom with a modern en-suite bathroom and a den with a TV offering M-Net and a DVD player. A kitchenette with sink, fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster allows guests to prepare light meals. The den can sleep another adult and children can be accommodated on mattresses.

The Garden Snug is nestled in the garden and it is separate from the main house. It is a smaller suite situated on two levels and it consists of two single beds and a pull out bed for a child. It has an en-suite bathroom with s shower as well as a small kitchenette. The room has a TV and DVD player.

We always endeavour to provide a warm and friendly environment for our guests who can relax on the beautiful verandah or at our sparkling 15 m swimming pool. We provide a scrumptious Continental breakfast, but a cooked breakfast and a hearty dinner can be arranged at an additional cost. We are happy to accommodate children and we have lovely facilities for them to enjoy.

We liked the main cottage with the view to the lovely garden with the swimming pool.It was a pity to hear the noise of the highway all the time.It is a good thing that there are plans to change the french room, because the road and the gate are nearby and very noisy.

Thanks for a very pleasant stay. Staff were very friendly and service good. Close to Cascades where our MTB event was held. Lots of space. It would have been nice to be able to braai. Thanks for the packed breakfast on the morning of departure.

We had a pleasant stay at A Garden Suite. The breakfast was great and the hosts very friendly. The one negative thing is that it is a little close to the highway so one can always hear the traffic noise.
