From the time of making telephonic enquiries up and until the time we departed we were treated like old friends and enjoyed every aspect of the establishment. Lovely and quiet next to the brook babbling past, listening to the birds and monkeys in the trees of the forest. This is a call again B&B!

We visited Pietermaritzburg over the weekend and stayed at Babbling Brooke. The rooms are spacious, clean and private. Breakfast area is cozy with a lovely view and a tasty breakfast. We love Babbling Brook!

We stayed for two nights during a business trip to an unfamiliar city. We found the location of the B&B perfectly situated to address all of our needs including close access to the venue, malls, and restaurants.

Rooms are a bit outdated, bud the breakfast is very good and in a cosy common breakfast room. Nice stay. Car can be parked inside the compound. Lovely owners and the breakfast room is a nice place to talk to the other guests. The restaurants are rather far away, 15 mimutes car drive.

Thanks Morag & Gordon for...

Excellent accommodation with very friendly hosts. The only downside, and this is only if you have a large vehicle - the bushes on the steep driveways are somewhat overgrown and make access a little difficult. Also, there is no separate bathroom, so make sure you share with a very close friend.

The hosts made every effort to accommodate us and went out of their way to help us out in a last minute booking arrangement. Room was great - really spacious and had everything we could need. Breakfast every day was awesome. Onsite parking. Really fantastic accommodation. We will be back.

An excellent stay. Morag went out of her way to make our stay with her comfortable and she really goes the extra mile. She even baked small cupcakes for my daughter as it was her birthday. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
