King's Grant is the perfect getaway and being virtually equidistant between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, the ideal venue for a meet-up with our good friends. Located in a re-invented Trappist monastery, King's Grant oozes history and romanticism with the magnificent indigenous gardens adding huge dollops of natural beauty. No wonder the bird life makes this a favourite haunt for the tweeters... More

What a wonderful hidden gem in the middle of the Natal Midlands. We took a detour down to the Natal South Coast and spent a wonderful night at Kings Grant. We stayed in one of the self catering suites and just loved it. The gardens are beautiful and peace and tranquility abounds. The bird life was fantastic! The staff were... More

Kings Grant is well kept (not all run down when we were there contrary to another report), wonderfully peaceful, and beautifully located. It's just outside of town but you are in town in less than 10 minutes. The individual modern, beautifully outfitted rondavels are as cozy as you could wish for. And since there is not any real place to... More

With its many little cobble stone paths that wind around the property, Kings Grant has a wonderful peaceful atmosphere about it. The gardens... More

We stayed at Kings Grant during a tour of the Trappist Monasteries in this part of KZN. The monks left some years ago and the new owners have lovingly restored and cared for the early 20th century buildings. The bedrooms are in some of the old accommodation parts for the monks, clustered around the church in the lush green garden.... More
