We had a wonderful stay for a week at Babbling Brook. The hostess was very accommodating, the rooms were very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious especially the apple muffins. Overall a excellent stay and will definately stay here again.

We stayed at this Guest house twice in less than a week. First one night and then again over the weekend two nights. We were both times welcomed as old friends and nothing was too much trouble. We were even welcome to leave our one vehicle longer at the guest house and fetched it later the Sunday! afternoon

Staying overnight before the Comrades Marathon was made a pleasure by my hosts hospitality and comfortable room. Mingling with other guests in the dining area was also a welcomed opportunity. The hosts really do go out of their way to make you feel at home. I highly recommend Babbling Brook and would definitely stay there again.

What a wonderful place to stay - we felt like we were away from the world, in a quiet haven being spoilt rotten! Morag is such a gentle soul, the breakfasts an absolute treat! This is one of those places that I will go back to every time I need to be in Pietermaritzburg. Quality, style, unpretentious, warm.

The place is amazing, the host very welcoming, the dogs sweet as sugar, the breakfast, the apartments... it's often hard to explain why you love a place more than others, but in the end it was the atmosphere and the details that made this B&B the best place during our 2 week road trip through South Africa. Highly recommended.

I stayed in a beautiful room/cottage. It had a very warm and cozy feel to it. I felt right at home and even took photos of my room to show my family. I would highly recommend BabblingBrook to my family and friends and will stay there in the future.

Margon and Gordon are great hosts, very friendly. It' a pleasure to stay with them. The accomodation is fantastic, lovely rooms, shady places in a colourful garden. The breakfast is great. Don't miss the botanical garden in the neighborhood.
