We stayed at Brevisbrook for two nights in April 2011. The owners Dave and Normaine Short were extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful and the breakfasts are superb. The two rooms we stayed in were, however, rather disappointing.

Firstly the furniture in the rooms are all very old and the beds, mattresses and bathrooms in particular are in need of an upgrade. The sheets were clean but unfortunately I found a live spider in between the sheets when I opened them on the first night so I was a bit wary.

We also found a number of unidentifiable bugs in our rooms. These had small bodies with feelers (cockroaches perhaps?) In addition there was a dead fishmoth in my shower on the first night which was still there on the second night, which indicated that the shower hadn't been cleaned. There was also dirt in the toilet which hadn't been cleaned though I pointed this out to the cleaner

As we were unhappy the owners kindly agreed that we could check out early and remained helpful and friendly which was a great credit to them.

All in all I would say that we chose the wrong bed and breakfast. We are accustomed to modern comforts and a high standard of hygiene and this was sadly lacking in the rooms we stayed in.

(Note that we were charged R700 per room per night and that the modern four-star hotel in Scottsville which we moved to charged R780 per room per night.)

I stayed in Brevisbrook Guesthouse in May. It has a fantastic location in the hills 6 km above Pietermaritzburg. I arrived late as my taxi driver was unable to find Brevisbrook so check this with your taxi driver beforehand. My bedroom was very spacious with starched white bed linen, an ensuite bathroom and a separate entrance which lead onto the garden. The surrounding gardens were superb, the vegetation was lush and imaginative. Brevisbrook is located on a quiet country road. The owners were very friendly.

The big bonus was the free traditional South African breakfast. All in all it was superb value and a real pleasure to visit. I would certainly return.

This bed & breakfast is situated in a lovely garden setting. Normaine has foreseen absolutely *every* thing a traveller might need. The rooms are spotless, bright and comfortable. Normaine, Dave and the staff bend over backwards to help in any way possible. Brevisbrook is a wonderful experience.
