We frequented Babbling Brook B&B over the period 21-23 July. The quality of whole product was of the highest standard. Very professional. And added benefit was that it was located ideally, which suited us just fine.

I was very impressed with the awesome service and my expectations were met on all levels. In comparison to other facilities in PMB this is true value for money. The breakfast was also very impressive!

A wonderful place to stay. Always greeted with a warm and friendly smile. Gordon and Morag are fantastic hosts. Beautiful surroundings and amazing cooked breakfasts! Very accommodating as we had a young baby. Excellent Maritzburg hospitality.

Great stay with excellent attention to detail on every comfort needed. Beds and linen of great quality. The Wifi connection at the lower rooms seem to need a bit of attention as I did not have internet connection even though I was connected and had to use mobile alternatives that does not have great reception. The hospitality and quality of... More

Stayed over in January, and found Babbling Brook to be great value for money. The small touches were best - lovely breakfast; beautiful bathroom, and great, lavender-scented toiletries. The surrounding area is a typical suburban setting - not much to look at; but once you are in the property or in your room, its easy to forget that you aren't... More

Ansolutley everything you want in a BnB when it comes to relaxing! Thanks for the great stay!! Our ground floor room was extremely spacious even with our king size bed. Everything was clean and neat, including our bathroom that was built for royalty.
