The guests are your clients and need to be satisfied at all angles. The are some improvements to be done at the accommodation to make guests at ease and relaxed especially when one needs tranquillity.

Place from the outside is an old-ish style.inside is nice and clean rooms are perfect. Staff was very friendly and assisted us at all times. The Nichols family loved them to bits. Breakfast was good at all times. The area is nice and quite If you are not a dog friendly person that place won't work for you.

The property is nestled within very lush and beautiful KZN vegitation, on the edge of the beautiful valley of a thousand hills. Rooms are spacious and beautiful. It is just a pity that we did not have time to enjoy the property because we were attending a wedding.

Villa Brae is located in a very secluded area, surrounded by trees and shrubs, the house is an old character house, large rooms, high ceilings and a wide spiral staircase as a centre piece as you enter the house. The hosts Rod and Karen were helpful and attentive to any of our needs, the room was large with all you... More

I've only spent one night here. It will unfortunately not make it to the top of my list as it is perhaps not entirely to my taste. I have to be upfront from the start and make it clear that I am not a dog person and this obviously influences my review significantly. If your an animal (specifically dog lover)... More

Had a great stay, the hosts were very friendly and accomodating. It was a bit tricky to find the place though.I think putting up some form of signage close to the main road would help.Great value for money!!

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
