Cruising the Comrades, dipping the 'Duzi, Midmar'ing the Mile, Meandering the Midlands, Mandela'ing the Marathon, Royal'ing the Show, Biking the Mountain, or just passing through? Start, or end, (or both) your 'Maritzburg mission, in the quiet Quince Cottage, a renovated stable built in 1897, bordering the KZN National Botanical Garden. Humble, 'shabby-chic', in a beautiful, indigenous, leafy surround.
“This charming and unique cottage is definitely worth a stay! The cottage is cosy and has everything you could possibly want. Sue was kind enough to have made homemade muffins and had the basics in the fridge which meant you didn't even need to go to the shops! The best for me was that the property backs onto the Botanical Gardens, so I ended my day running through the park and being mesmerised by the magnificent trees and plants! This is a true gem of a place, if you are visiting Pietermaritzburg you should definitely stay here :)”

“Honestly the images and the reviews will paint a glimpse of what to expect but in all honesty you will most likely have to experience her hospitality to full understanding what I mean when I say that her home is the definition of what hospitality should be. On top of that it’s very good value for money and her thoughtful touches really give it a homely atmosphere. Oh and there’s a POOL!!!!”
