The New Virgin Active Gym is Two minutes away from us….

We are so delighted that Virgin Active has opened a brand, spanking new gym at Cascades which is just down from us. For those of you gym bunnies who have a national membership, come and stay with us – we are just two minutes away. It is getting dark at 5pm now, so it is great to go to gym. Our kids love it too.

A Gorgeous Autumn in Sleepy Hollow

The leaves of our beautiful Plain tree are turning brown and fluttering to the ground. This signals the beginning of a beautiful autumn in Maritzburg and reminds me that gorgeous events are on their way. We love to go to Art in The Park – there is something magical about the crunch of the leaves underfoot, the fires, the shetty and ofcourse the beautiful art. We also love to take the children to The Royal Show. The East candy floss and admire the bunnies and other animals on display. Christopher Duigan also adds some wonderful colour to our city with his autumn concerts. Hot soup and coffee warm the soul!!! If you would like to visit these events in our city, we would love to host you in one of our cosy rooms as out bed and breakfast. Find us on

Our New French Suite

At A Garden Suite B&B in Pietermaritzburg, were were delighted to host folk participating in the Cycling Champs and even more delighted to hear that one of our guests came second in the elite section and he was only 17!!! We would love to claim that it was our delicious breakfast that helped his performance but he is actually just extremely talented.

Winter is definitely on it’s way with chilly mornings and evenings but at midday we are peeling off all the layers. For the chilly winter mornings we have added porridge and hot milk to the menu and although we serve a continental health breakfast there is always something warm and savoury to follow and ofcourse a steamy coffee plunger gets everyone “op en wakker”.On the weekends my husband, Andrew, spoils everyone with cream crumpets.

Have a look at our new French Room – while it is not a big room like our Main Garden Suite, it is lovely and cosy and we hope to add a deck on soon for sundowners! Our rooms are kept toast with heaters, blankets and throws.

Have a look at our website on and make a booking enquiry.

Best wishes Lara
