I had to attend a regional meeting in Pietermaritzburg and found this B&B on Bookings.com. if was more than what I expected for the price. Excellent value for money. If the rates stays the same I will use them more frequently and also suggest to friends and family

My partner and I so enjoyed our stay here. Our hosts made us feel right at home, going above and beyond our expectations of hospitality. I would recommend this place to anyone passing through PMB - don't miss out on a real treat.

I stayed at the Babbling Brook on two different nights over the course of a week while traveling through South Africa. The hostess showed me the warmest hospitality. She welcomed me like I was a member of her family and offered to help in any way possible during my stay. I felt completely at home. I stayed in two different...

We stayed at this Guest house twice in less than a week. First one night and then again over the weekend two nights. We were both times welcomed as old friends and nothing was too much trouble. We were even welcome to leave our one vehicle longer at the guest house and fetched it later the Sunday! afternoon

Staying overnight before the Comrades Marathon was made a pleasure by my hosts hospitality and comfortable room. Mingling with other guests in the dining area was also a welcomed opportunity. The hosts really do go out of their way to make you feel at home. I highly recommend Babbling Brook and would definitely stay there again.

What a wonderful place to stay - we felt like we were away from the world, in a quiet haven being spoilt rotten! Morag is such a gentle soul, the breakfasts an absolute treat! This is one of those places that I will go back to every time I need to be in Pietermaritzburg. Quality, style, unpretentious, warm.

The place is amazing, the host very welcoming, the dogs sweet as sugar, the breakfast, the apartments... it's often hard to explain why you love a place more than others, but in the end it was the atmosphere and the details that made this B&B the best place during our 2 week road trip through South Africa. Highly recommended.
