Warm welcome, we were very happy to spend two days there. The flats for family is perfect, we slept soooooo well. The kids were very happy to discover the garden and the swiming pool! Thanks a lot for all your support!

We slept over at Gateside. Beautiful scenery and views. It was very clean and quite. The staff is friendly and recommended a great restaurant around the corner. It is exactly as it promises. I definitely recommend it

Philippa is fantastic, friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our 4 day stay en route to our annual holiday. The property has magnificent views and is centrally located to explore the Natal midlands. Neat, clean and very relaxing. We will be back Andre Duif and Deon Krause May 2014

The Little Gateside is lovely with a fireplace, wood... More

Our family of 5 adults and one toddler recently enjoyed 6 days at Gateside Guesthouse. Our self-catering flats were large, clean, comfortable, and lovely. The panoramic view down the valley and the gorgeous gardens added to our enjoyment. The breakfasts in the common dining room each morning were superb! Our flats were cleaned immanucately each day. The service was absolutely... More

A last minute booking afforded us the last small room at our favourite stopover in Hilton.The room was comfortable and quiet with a large bathroom. Breakfast was lovely and large . The views are stunning.
