About Penryn

A touch of luxury at a reasonable price!

Penryn is a gracious old home, situated in central Dundee, close to all amenities and easily accessible.

It has been tastefully converted into a charming and comfortable B&B while carefully preserving its essential Victorian ambience.

It is set in a beautiful prize winning garden, with good security and electronically controlled access.

We offer a family flat, sleeping four, which has a TV Lounge and kitchen. This unit can be self-catering or bed and breakfast.

A further three en suite bedrooms are available, each with private entry. All rooms are tastefully decorated and are equipped with a DSTV bouquet, bar fridge, heater, electric blankets and coffee making facilities. All offer an attractive outlook onto a private patio with outdoor seating.

Dundee is the heart of the KZN battlefields district. The first shots of the Anglo-Boer War were fired on the town at the Battle of Talana.

Dundee boasts an excellent historical museum, as does Rorke’s Drift. The town has a picturesque 18-hole golf course and offers squash, tennis, bowls and fishing. For the more adventurous the nearby Buffalo River offers white water rafting and canoeing.

There is also a 4x4 trail for the off road enthusiasts. An hour and a half away is the NPB Ithala Game Reserve which has an abundance of bird life, as well as four of the big five.

          Very good. Will use it again if in the area.

          My experience was excellent. I was welcomed by the friendliest staff, the bedroom was clean and they have an amazing garden. Staying there felt like home away from home.

          Our welcome on arrival at Penryn was warm and friendly and we immediately fell in love with this charming Victorian Guest house and its beautiful garden. Our room was spotless and very comfortable with firm mattresses and crisp linen. The staff serving our delicious, generous breakfast were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this B&B and will definitely book there again when we return to explore the the Natal Battlefields further.

          This is a lovely establishment which we enjoyed staying at. Carol was very hospitable. We have recommended this place already and would most certainly like to return in future.
