I spent two nights at Villa Brae recently and highly recommend it as a stopover for travellers with business in and around the Kloof area. Rod and Karen are charming hosts and there is a sense of tranquillity to be found in this lovely old home set in its leafy rambling garden. The breakfasts are delicious and generously portioned and... More

Villa Brae is one of those rare B&B's, where one truly feels you can hide out, hang out, and really escape from the rat race - yet, it's so close to Durbs, the highways, etc. I would definitely stay here again, next time I've got to be anywhere close to DBN... Rod and Karen went out of their way to... More

Had a great stay at Villa Brae for 2 nights with my husband. The room was nice and spacious and had a huge balcony. Karen and Rod really made me, my mom and bridesmaids feel comfortable as we got dressed for my wedding, and treated my hubby and I like family when we stayed there the next day. If I... More

Stayed at Villa Brae for only one night. We usually down in Durban and then drive up to Pinetown for business. Much more relaxing to stay up in Pinetown. Pay attention when going to Villa Brae from Durban's side as you need to turn over and go back on the M13. Directions on website is good so is easy to... More

I want to start off by saying that I completely disagree with one of the previous reviews! I was whisked away here as a surprise. What was more of a surprise was how this gorgeous place had been only 20minutes away and I never knew about it! After driving down the long driveway through the grounds we were met with... More

Had a great time with some great people in a comfortable environment. Highly recommended and will be back. The room was spacious and well appointed, and the breakfasts were fantastic. Ended up making some new friends, an unexpected bonus!!!!

Rod and Karen are two very nice people willing to make you feel good and really make you enjoy your time at their place. When I arrived there, I was actually a bit down but their warm welcome, Karen's amazing lasagna and the comfort of the room definitly cheered me up....and that would be a shame to forget about the...

We were so disappointed when we arrived.The establishment is in desperate need of attention.Everything is old,run down and mismatched.We had booked a luxury suite which was nothing short of old and gloomy and overpriced compared to the lovely BB we eventually found to stay in.The advertising is completely misleading too.Access is also difficult off the M 13.

The property is not really in Kloof - rather on the border of Pinetown. Difficult to get in and out of as it is on Fields Hill. Not enought hotwater for more than one shower. Bed not great - one side has a huge dip. On the upside - great breakfast!

I recently stayed at Villa Brae for two nights on a business trip. Not exactly so easy to find especially at night time, but a very large property in a huge beautiful garden all tucked away in serenity. You definitely get the feeling of being transferred to a place "far from the madding crowd" whilst you are, in reality, in... More
