Nice/small B&B, owners overwheming friendly and kind. The rooms are good (with tasteful bathrooms and good view over the town). If you are taller than 1.80m, watch your head, there is an evil ceiling beam right after the stairs, which may put you out of order for the rest of your vacation. In near vicinity (walking distance) excellent restaurant for... More

We stayed here during a trip through KZN which took in the Sani Pass. The BnB was homely, good value for money and the owners made us very welcome. Breakfast was great and had the weather been a little better we would have enjoyed it on the verandah overlooking a very pretty garden . We would stay again if in... More

The B&B is a suburban house, built in the the 1930s , in a quiet street 5 minutes walk from underbergs village centre. It has secure parking in the garden . The house is wooden and our room was on the first floor up a narrow wooden staircase. It was a small room with hardly enough room to move about... More

Within walking distance of the small town of Underberg, the Pile-Inn lies is in a quiet back street set in a well maintained fenced garden. Our ensuite room was light, airy and spacious with delightful touches of Africa everywhere. Willy and Caroline were warmly welcoming but not "in your face". Their breakfast was sumptuous and served on the shady front... More

We stayed here as a stop over to Umngazi. The owners were friendly and the rooms pleasant. Negatives were a steep flight of stairs (a worry with the kids) and a strong smell of cigarette smoke in the communal areas. Fine as a stop over but not sure I would stay longer with the kids. Great location for Sani to... More

We found this very beautifull little hotel when we arrived in Underberg. New owners were really friendly, treated us as part of their family. Caroline made sure we had everything we needed and her son in law gave us very important information about the treaks to do in the surroundings, specially to go to Sani Pass. The rooms were very...

We were traveling in the Drakensberg during the school holidays in October, and the first place we stayed confused our reservation for the 2nd night of our trip. Fortunately, we found rooms at Pile Inn. It was incredibly comfy--the beds were soft and I especially enjoyed the complimentary coffee and tea in the room. We were planning on getting up... More

We made a last-minute reservation here when our original plan fell through. We didn't know what to expect, as we didn't have internet access to see photos & reviews. We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived! The rooms were very cozy, clean, comfortable, and comparatively much more luxurious than the other places we had stayed (backpacker lodgings). This was... More

I stayed at the Pile Inn for two nights - one at each end of my hike in the Drakensberg Mountains. Lucia is a great hostess and serves a first class brekkie, but unfortunately for us travellers she is moving on to something different. Hopefully the new host(es) will be equally good. The rooms are basic but nice (as a... More
