Thank you for a great stay. A wonderful balance between attention and leaving us to ourselves. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The setting is also great and gives you the feeling of being out of town.

I was very happy with my stay at Babbling Brook, the room was lovely and clean. Nice finishes, the highlight has got to be the lovely bed, the owners have invested in fantastic beds. Breakfast was lovely, enjoyed in a very relaxing setting with beautiful soft music playing in the background.

We needed some to stay in Pietermarizburg and not having any knowledge of the area chose Babbling Brook from its rating on Tripadvisor. We were really impressed by the friendly welcome by Morag any Gordon the owners and the rooms high quality. The breakfasts were really of a high quality and we really enjoyed our stay.

It's been my 5th or 6th stay at the Babbling Brook. The attention to detail of the tranquil setting and the peaceful home away from home atmosphere combined with the excellent service, hospitality and fantastic meals is second to none.

A definite must if looking for a home away from home accommodation in PMB. Homely and clean. Morag has thought of everything from bathroom necessities to an umbrella for that rainy day. The surroundings are serene with greenery all round. Quiet for those morning sleep ins.

Immaculate service!!! We had such a lovely stay at this place, we didn't want to leave. Gordon and his wife made us feel so much at home. The attention to detail was incredible, the food was also very delicious. We loved it. Thank you and keep it up. We will definitely be back.
