My wife and I recently attended a conference in Pietermaritzburg and we stayed two nights at Brevisbrook Guesthouse. Dave and Normaine were perfect hosts and made us feel very at home. The cottage we stayed in was spacious and very comfortable. I appreciated the attention to detail like having a microwave in the room was great and an umbrella came... More

Generous and giving hosts Dave and Normaine went out of their way to help us get the most from our short three days in the Pietermaritzburg region; Dave even gave us a guided tour of the town centre in his car, and a lift to the local Botanical Gardens :) The house / accommodation is a once-private residence expanded some...

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... More

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.
