The Babbling Brook was the perfect, relaxing end to our vacation. The room was spotless, the hot breakfast was delicious, and Gordon and Morag were friendly and attentive to all our needs--even our 18-month-old's!

Enjoyed every minute my son and I spent at the Babbling Brook. The room was spacious and clean, and Gordon and Morag were such wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our 3 nights there and will definitely be returning

Warm welcome, pretty and very comfortable room, plentiful beverages and milk on offer - all in lovely surroundings. Add to this a delicious, just-as-I-like-it breakfast and this is definitely my new Pietermaritzburg base!

Babbling brook is a home away from home and we are always made very welcome. I am so pleased I found such a great place to stay when we visit our friends in PMB. It is very peaceful and relaxing and all the little touches make a big difference. We will be back.

We stayed only vor one night, but enjoyed it very much. Great room, great breakfast, but most important: extremely nice people/host. We recommend this place to everybody! This Place is also in a safe area.

Paid for and only expected a basic bedroom, but very pleasantly surprised to find we had a lovely private self catering apartment ,with adjacent covered car parking in a garden setting. Did not see the Babbling brook,but heard it in the background whilst enjoying our breakfast which we had selected from a wide menu the previous evening. All in all... More

Lovely quiet setting but close to the centre of the city. The unit was very clean and thoughtfully furnished with some lovely finishing touches. The breakfast was superb with a long list of options on the cooked element.

This BB is in a quiet area on Pietermaritzburg, within walking distance of the natal botanical gardens. The rooms can not be faulted with great attention paid to detail and comfort. The most comfortable bed I slept in away from home with high quality linen. Lovely finishes, clean and well designed. Owners Morag and Gordon were friendly and gracious. My... More
