I stayed at The Grace with my teenage daughter for four nights and found it to be an excellent choice. Good compromise between price, services location etc in terms of access to downtown, the shopping malls and my meeting venue at the Showgrounds. Staff were very helpful, facilities are good and the breakfast of the expected standard. I would happily... More

We stayed here, in the family room with my partner and 2 kids. Francina is wonderful and deserves a raise. The booking process could have been way way better. Also, no one ever seems to answer at the gate & calling the number on the sign outside proved useless. If they can fix this and the booking process, this place... More

My wife and I had a confirmed booking for one night (25 April 2013). We arrived at 16:30 after a six hour trip from Johannesburg. After 50 minutes of many unanswered calls to both numbers, messages left, hooting outside the gate, pressing the doorbell in the street many times, we went away to find alternative accommodation. We were informed that... More

A great hostel with nice and clean rooms. I was on a business trip and was fortunate enough to get a room here. They are very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and I was able to rest very well, so I could perform my job. I would definitely go here again.

The Grace Guesthouse was very clean, tidy, and well appointed. The house is a lovely, old colonial style building with comfortable furnishings. We stayed for one night, and Francina was very helpful in letting us in early to change for a church service, phoning us in the evening to check on our progress and waking up very early to see...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Grace. Mosa was fantastic! The B&B was clean and well maintained. The service was excellent and the breakfast wonderful. I can really recommend staying at the Grace when you next visit Pietermaritzburg! Thanks Mosa for a wonderful two days.

This is a small boutique hotel in a pretty part of town. There are 4 rooms in the house, the owner/manager lives nearby and the housekeeping staff lives in a small house on the back of the property. Service can be a bit hit and miss, as there isn't a full time attendant, so sometimes when you need something, there... More

For those of you wishing to stay at this B&B - be warned. We didn't even have an opportunity to stay here as we were so rudely put off by the owner/manager. I emailed the B&B to enquire on availability for one night's stay (for a wedding) 6 weeks in advance. I received a reply confirming availability, to which I... More
